Yes but I know that giving up is not going to get me to my goals.

Sometimes I do want to give up especially when I don't see that scale moving however I do it for my mom and my kids. My mom was never able to lose her weight and so I want to do it for both of us.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be

right now I can say yes to that, the scale has not been my friend. But I think that it might be the meds I am taking. So it is just hang in there for now.

I have the hardest time when I get sick. I stop exercising and I eat whatever (since I usually have minimal appetite, I eat whatever I can stomach). Then, once I am finally recovered, I have the WORST time getting back into eating healthy foods.

I'm at that point right now (sick for 3+ weeks)... I've been "healthy" again for about a week and have yet to exercise or get my lunch/snacks packed completely again. I'm doing better than I was a week ago... but still not on step... or losing weight.

What do I do? Keep trying to make little changes every day. Today, I am not eating cookies. Today, I had 3 servings of fruits/veggies. Tomorrow, maybe 5!

Yes I wanted to throw in the towel a long time ago. Because I work to hard not to see any results. I have tried several things but it never work but I never gave up or stop sparking. I realized that it didn't come on over night and it's not going to come off that way either. But after 3 to 6 months I should see something beside a tired body.

Yeah. I just think I don't want to go back to how things were.

I have thrown my hands up with the negative ("I can't keep living like this anymore." "I am sick and tired of being sick and tired"), but I have never thrown my hands up in pursuit of the goal of recovery. I was told a long time ago that if there were a magic way to have what I want right now without having to work for it, someone would have found it by now. Alas, the easiest way doesn't mean it's easy. Simple, but not easy.

It happens a lot. I don't have any bigger clothes to fall back on. That is a big factor. I got rid of all of them. emoticon

I get tired, full body exhausted, and I don't want to exercise, or track, or do anything really. I haven't gotten to the 'want a cheeseburger and fry binge', but definately the 'I'm too tired to exercise' stage.

Then I yell at myself for a while, and get back into it. I'm doing two bootcamp challenges this month to force my booty to move! Plus my daily walking. Lets see if it has any effect today on my weigh in (I feel like I've gained a million pounds but that could just be my tired arms and legs yelling about having to support my fat ass. :) )

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's learning to dance in the rain.

I know how you feel. It happens to me often...usually because I was not perfectly on plan.
Or, perhaps I had allowed too much sodium into my foods. I dare not get on the scale the
next day. I have found the scale can go up due to water weight, and my mind sees it as
having "gained". If I see I have gained I sometimes want to throw in the towel, therefore I will try and eat foods that help flush the sodium out before I weigh again.

Don't quit, and get right back to being on plan. It is hanging in there long enough where
we start to really see results.

Yeah, I know how you feel.

I've never been a quitter and i'm not going to start now. But sometimes I do want to throw up my hands....then I grab my food journal and begin anew. I'm happy that i'm at a point where it is ingrained in me to at least try to be healthy in this lifestyle. I have a goal and one of these days i'm going to see it accomplised.

When the scale isn't budging! Then I look at my 'purple' dress I want to fit perfectly. I've given myself to my b.d. in August. If it doesn't fit till then, then I will donate it! Perish the thought!

Has there ever come a time when you've just wanted to throw up your hands and say "enough"? And if so what kept you going?
