Head in the sand

Sunday, January 12, 2014

I've been living with my head in the sand. At least for the past year. I've gained over 20 lbs. since last June. It has been too hard to stay motivated. It's stupid to say this, but I have regressed to binge eating. Something I had thought I'd gotten past. I guess I've been depressed. Come to think of it, the weight started going up after my dr. upped one of my medicines last June. Then, I was put on 2 other meds. by October. But I can't blame it on that. I just gave up and over ate what I wanted.

You know what? It's not good to go to the coffee shop and get a "small" latte and 2 chocolate chunk cookies - and on the way back to work, devouring both cookies so no one knows. Who would have thought that, right? Hey, I did it soooo many times the past few months.

So here I am, up to 185.2 lbs. on January 12, 2014. Never in my wildest dreams/nightmares had I ever dreamed I'd weigh this much. I am so ashamed of myself. I am going to lose this weight the right way by taking it one minute at a time. I am not going to put pressure on myself by setting a "deadline". What I really want is to lose 40 lbs. So, I am back to Spark. I don't know what else I can say, except I am going to try hard to make this work.

    Over the holidays, I also put on weight. It has been difficult for me to stop eating. I am exercising, drinking lots of water...but until I can get the food under control I am not going to lose.

    I am in the same boat! I have been sloppy in my food choices since last Fall and the holidays were even worse. Now I have put on 7 pounds that I didn't want to see again. I like the idea of 1 minute at a time. So let's do it! emoticon

    We all have been there at one time or another. You realize the situation and are willing to do something about it. Stay strong and take it one minute at a time.

    Meds can certainly affect hunger and such. I know I am retaining much more water since my doc switched one of my meds! But, you are right... It all boils down to the choices we make!I like how you said you would do it one minute at a time. That's what it takes... Not 1 day, not 1 week, but 1 minute, 1 second, 1 small incriment at a time again and again! You can do it! Visit the Mixed Mutt Team for encouragement and support! We are here for you and we get it!
