Help Me, I'm Sinking

Friday, January 31, 2014

I feel like Iím in sinking sand.

I thought for sure the scales would say I had lost something this time, but nooooo they just wonít budge.

Iím stuck in a rut again and I canít seem to get out. I was really hoping this year would be different and I would start losing steadily. Wrong again.

. Maybe itís the weather and the fact the YMCA has been closed.

I have been exercising but not as vigorously as I would be at the Y.
For the most part, I eat healthy and low fat but sometimes temptations creep in and I indulge.

I hope the Y will be open tomorrow so I can go to Zumba and Yoga.

I really need to start lifting weights again too.

Iíve got to come up with a plan of action because I have more weight I want to lose. I know I can do this!

    I used to think I was fat when I would fight the same 10 pounds in the winter. now after putting on about 60 pounds from an a car accident, 10 pounds would sound like I was skinny. I like to joke about it and say that I was in so much pain that if I had drugs, I would have done that, and if I had pain killers, I would have done that too, or if their was boos, that would have been something I would have done. but not having any of those options, I did food! Ha, Ha, it's my drug of choice. it really is hard to fight all your triggers, and habits, and chemistry, and all the foods that call you, and if you eat the wrong processed food you swell from salt. what's a dieter top do? Well I used to be an exercise addict, so under duress, I guess that didn't help me either. I do the diabetic diet, in Spark or outside, cause it is the healthiest. Yet I have learned from going into different clinic that what need to change is my life style, and for that I do Weight watcher, cause they teach you how to change your bad habits. I don't want to hear when my body needs food that I have to pretend that it doesn't, So I have learned what to fill up on,a nd keep a journal, and I really don't haver to kill myself every nite at the gym, and my weight has come off, cause I am counting, and eating minny meals in between to keep from getting out of control. I hope something I have said helped you. good luck, we all need it. And I am down now 45 pounds, but it was slow. eva

    I am going to ask you a silly and what you may think is a stupid question. Are you eating enough? Also, as the others said, look at those non-scale victories. I assure you, you will be surprised. I have hit those plateaus also. It will discourage you. Don't let that happen. And don't weigh too often. That can just kill your motivation. By all means, don't lose that terrific sense of humor. I am like Della, you got me with the title. You are doing great. Just be a little more've got this right in the palm of your hand. Hang in there. Remember small victories win battles and won battles win wars. This journey to a more healthy you is like a war. You can do this. Oh. and BTW, I just love cats!!! Have a blessed day. emoticon Judi

    emoticon Hitting a plateau is hard, but look for other non-scale victories too! I'm in the same boat, not losing any weight, but I've noticed other things like the fact that I'm easily increasing the distance I'm walking each week and my pants getting too big. It's hard keeping the motivation when the scale doesn't want to budge but keep up the positive attitude.

    Yes you can. Over the past four months I only lost 4 lbs, you would think that I was upset? No. I lost 6 inches in my waist and 2 inches in my hips. I'm a happy camper. the weight will come off soon. Keep going forward
