Yo Yo Syndrome

Monday, October 15, 2007

Well I have been doing Spark people for a while now and I have stayed the same weight! It is good that I am not GAINING weight, but this weight loss thing has really thrown me for a loop.

I have really great weeks, where I follow my plan and exercise 3-4 times a week, but then I get very minimal weight loss. This frustrates me, so then the next week isn't so great. I get lazy... don't eat right and don't exercise as much. Then after that week, I get disgusted with myself and go back to being good. It is a perpetual yo-yo week to week.

I really need to be consistant and not be so hard on myself. I have to stop expecting big weight loss numbers and be satisfied with a pound or even less a week. It is obvious that I am not losing weight like I did when I was younger, so I have to stop expecting that!

So as of now, I am going to commit myself to being consistent. On tracking everything that goes in my mouth and exercising at least 3 days a week. I am going to stop my late night eating binges, because they are sabotaging all of my hard work throughout the day. I am going to commit myself to a healthier me and stop coming up with excuses!

    Just read your Blog,that sounds familiar with a lot of us. I'm a former Weight Watcher member and lost 130 lbs. kept it off for many years,it wasn't easy by no means,I don't believe my goal weight was ever consistent for 2 weeks in a row. Now I'm older maybe a little wiser,but need to lose 40 lbs. again. I've lost 10 so far,but stayed the same today (my weekly way in) If you are really honest with yourself and keep tabs on a tablet in front of you when you eat your meals,desserts,water take in and exercise and don't cheat,you will get the results you are looking for, My daily calorie intake according to Weight Watchers should be about 1300 calories, my choice is 1200-1250 because I'm a stay at home and don't burn as many calories as most people running around at the job and whatever. I wish you the best of luck,YOU CAN DO IT,Pat yourself on the back each day that you have had a good day. Marianne
