Not sure I want to do this anymore

Tuesday, November 20, 2007

Okay today I woke up and it hit me that I don't want to do this anymore. I don't know why I am hitting a wall at this point. I have lost weight over the last nine weeks and have seen clothes get baggier. Maybe it is because I am tired today or it is the start of that time of the month. I made the mistake of weighing myself a day early and after I had eaten breakfast so of course I lost no weight. That just seems to solidify my resolve to give this up. I don't like to exercise by myself all the time but clubs and classes are just not in the budget and I can't get my family to join in. It is just that today the idea of this endless routine of exercise and calorie counting going on for the rest of my life just seems more than I can take. I have not pigged out today which is what I would have done a few weeks ago but my resolve to do anything else is kaput.

    Yes you do, just not today. We all have days like that especially when TOM hits. Keep your chin up and in a day or so you will feel better. In the mean time just concentrate on not backing up any.

    I can identify with what you are saying. Sticking to it has been so hard the last week with no loss showing on the scale and I am working out everyday and gosh how I would love to have a peanut butter cookie or 3 or 4 even lol. When I am feeling like you are - I try to sit at my computer and write my thoughts out - right then and there - kinda like you did in the blog. Then I do whatever it is I was thinking I wanted to do - eat those cookies or just lay around and do nothing today - then at the end of the night revisit your blog and try and figure out what made today different than other days.

    It is OK if you eat those cookies or just have a day of doing nothing, its what you do tomorrow and the next day that counts in the long run, so every now and then allow yourself the little breaks if you need it, it certainly makes sticking to a plan easier if you feel you are in control of it.

    Hang in there!

    Just hang in there. I think I have those days almost everyday lately. I may fall off the wagon but the next day I just get right back up and keep going. ~ Deanna
