Day 76: Frustrating Week

Thursday, September 12, 2013

So obviously I haven't posted in awhile... And although I want to be able to respond to everyone individually and thank them for commenting on my blog/my wall/wishing me a happy birthday, I'm still fighting exhaustion and getting caught up on homework so I have less to do over this weekend when I go home.

Last week was my birthday and wedding weekend #1. Obviously fun, right? Well I definitely had far too many "cheat" days in a row and gained weight :( so that wasn't great. Plus I fell on Saturday and scraped up my right knee, so that kept me out of commission AND I ended up getting sick this week. So I'm not sure how I'm doing right now other than pretty sucky in every category due to a lack of working out and trying to play catch-up from all the food/drinking I indulged in last week.

Usually I'm not one to be overly pessimistic in my posts, but I just haven't been in on the spark this week and I fear that this is just going to keep putting me further and further back from reaching my goals...

This weekend I have 2 more weddings. I have decided that I can indulge on Saturday but I'm still worried that I'm over where I was before. I've kind of accepted that though. I'm just happy that after 13 hours of sleep yesterday, I'm feeling less crummy and I can actually breathe again.

    Hey Girl! Frustration happens believe me. I realized today that I spent almost an entire year in the 180-200 pound range. You will have gains some weeks, and other weeks you'll have amazing losses. The main point must be that you keep trying. Just don't give up and keep checking in on Spark. I find that when I'm away from SP is when I make choices I know are hurting me. You can do this, I know it!

    That fact you are worrying about not being active on Sparkpeople is a good sign. You are aware. It helps keep us in line somewhat, when we are in situations that are oh so tempting. I hope you knee is much better. I don't know if it is swollen or not, if so ice it, that will help the swelling and pain. As for the other two weddings, here is a thought. Eat before you go. Eat things that will make you feel full and drink a lot of water, before going. Of course that means bathroom trips, but worth it if it controls temptation. Also, wear something a little snug. If you are feeling full and wearing something snug, you won't want to eat to much. If you do eat, you will start to feel a little miserable and stop. It does work pretty good. Plus eat things at the weddings that are the healthiest, but don't miss eating a piece of wedding cake. emoticon Just make it a small piece to get the satisfaction of eating it. If you do fall off the healthy eating wagon don't sweat it. Just start over again and don't be to hard on yourself. We all go through that. Rest up! Good luck! emoticon

    I don't believe that being human and having off days makes you pessimistic -- I believe it makes you human. Chin up, doll. emoticon

    Hey it happens.. I'm celebrating a loss this morning, but it is the same weight that I celebrated on my 7/12 and 8/16 weighins.. My weight went up after both of those times of reaching that new milestone of being in the 220s, like I said it happens, ya just gotta pick yourself back up and do it! i hope you feel better for the weekend!
