Tired of Starting Over

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

So why do I keep giving up on myself? The scale has done nothing but go up and it's because I overeat, don't track it, and don't do my workouts. I think I have a sugar addiction - I eat lots of sugary sweets when I'm bored and/or stressed.

I stepped on my scale today and was so embarrassed. I haven't weighed this much since I was 8 months preggo with my almost 2-year old. I came up with a plan to help me work toward my goal.

1 - stay as close to calorie range as possible and track every morsel!

2 - 3 days of 30 Day Shred this week, along with any walks that we happen to take

3 - drink my water, at least 8 glasses.

I disconnected my fitbit from my spark account because it would say that I had all these fitness minutes for the day, but I didn't do any workouts. Then it would say that I'm not eating enough calories. I'm still wearing it and will think of those minutes as my bonus fitness minutes.

Fall is upon us, and dare I say winter!? That alone is going to make losing that much harder. I am determined to fight through this. Today was a fairly good day and I will try to make tomorrow better!

    I have had this problem for years now. Especially with sugary food.
    I will be "good" the whole day, and then crack in the evening.
    Gobble all in sight.
    About ten days ago now. I started a low carb diet. And that urge to overeat, is just gone.
    I just don't have the sugar up and downs. The food is so filling and rich. I am easily in calorie range and full. Whereas before I was going to bed Hungary, when I was eating more.
    I don't know what you think about low carbing. But if it is something you would try, I think it is worth a punt.
    Good luck!

    To stop stopping you need to face the fears/issues surfacing when momentum brings success. You are quite normal - we all have to do this.

    At least you are starting over and not giving up!! I am starting over once again so I understand how frustrating it can be. But keep at it. Soon this will all become second nature! emoticon
