Hi Stephanie! Sounds like you're at a turning point in your life. Something struck me as I was reading your post...focusing on weight loss can bring you closer to that spiritual life you desire. If you're a scripture-reading person, there are many verses about keeping our bodies healthy and how to do so. Maybe this is a good time to combine the two! As you treat yourself better and improve health-wise, your spirituality will increase.
As far as consistency, I've been there! I just barely started (again) and am hopeful this is the time for me. One thing I'm trying is to start out a bit slower than I typically do (my past attempts have included jumping right into 60 minute workouts and stuff lol). Focusing on making small, manageable changes is my goal. Hang in there!
Yes, you are too young to feel like that. I'm 60 and I was feeling like that until I started with Sparkpeople. You're in the right place if you want to get healthy. If you live healthy the weight will come off by itself. One day at a time.
Hi Stephanie, Sounds like you've reached the end of your rope. That's alright because you have so much help from a variety of sources. I'm glad your MD is involved. I feel this is your unconscious desire to continue improving your lifestyle. Feeling a part from the Lord is terrifying to me. But, when I was suffering from depression, that was one of the main reasons that I sought professional help. Why not speak with your MD about the efficacy of counseling? Studies have shown that the year's end is prime time for feelings of negativity. Please try to get outside and move around. Sunlight alone can improve your mood in some cases. You are NOT alone in this, Stephanie. Your friends here at Sparks are going to reach out to you and support you. Hugs and Prayers for you!
"Oh Lord, ...let me not be afraid to defend the weak because of the anger of the strong, nor afraid to defend the poor because of the anger of the rich..."
This year has been one of the strangest in my life! Mostly quiet, but with some major family crisis.
Any how, I have seem to have lost alot of desire to do anything for myself and that includes my spiritual life which was so very full earlier this year.
I am tired of the focus on weight loss and just want to be healthy and not always thinking about food in some way or another! I turned 30 in November and at this point I am tired often and my body aches. I am too young for this! I need help! For the past 11 years I have carried an extra 60-80 pounds around with me. I am 5'1 and 220. My goal is to get to at least 150. I know charts say it should be more, but I have been there before ad it is a doable place.
I have a problem with being consistant. I start out, do good, sometimes for months and then fall off again.
My doctor put me on Xenical to see if she could help me get some of the weight off because of looming health concerns and I feel like taking this medicine and not trying to do better is a waste of time and money.
