Cj I think your amazing!!!!!! you are one person that always encourages me to press on. You know, Paul said in his letter to the philippians " I press on for the mark of theprize of the high calling of God in christ Jesus" I'm sure by that one word "press" that the task he was working to achieve was not an easy one. As our task is not either. Yet we press on. thank you for reminding me of that. I love your spirit!!!! Lola
I was in a slump for the past two weeks. I was dangling within 1 pound that whole time, even though I exercised the same and ate well. I just couldn't get past 162. Eugh! Well, this week I must have found a way out because I have already lost another 1 1/2. Horay!!!
I figured... Nobody's started a victory forum yet, so I might as well :)
Here's my current victory: I have been in a SLUMP for several days, feeling particularly lonely and ignored and, as a result, depressed and entirely unmotivated. I didn't want to track my food, I didn't want to go for walks, I didn't want to listen to happy music.
Therein lies the victory - I didn't track my food, but I didn't eat everything in sight. I didn't work out, but I lifted weights a couple of times here at work while I sat at my desk answering phone calls. And no, I didn't listen to peppy happy music, but I didn't allow myself to listen to my melancholy mixes 24/7.
And now... I'm back! I'm not beating myself up, I'm not making myself go back and attempt to enter everything into my nutrition log, I'm not pretending I've been okay... I'm just jumping back on the bandwagon - and I still managed to lose two more pounds!
Hey Slump? Yeah, you - consider yourself defeated :)
Anybody else survive a slump? Note - if you are still here, you survived - even if you DID eat a lot, gain weight, etc - the fact that you are back on SparkPeople is the most important thing!
