It is very hard to not feel well and unmotivated to do what you want to. Hopefully your medical team will figure out what is going on very soon and find the right therapy to get you on your way to health.
All you can do is try to take control where you can and hope the small things you do will not only help you feel a little better but also help you take small steps forward toward your goals. SparkPeople's Mind Over Body plan is designed to give you the tools you need to identify, work through, and overcome the most common emotional and mental (attitude) problems that people face when they set out to change their lifestyles.
Hi everyone, I'm 22, and I've been dealing with healthproblems-specifically hormone imbalances which the doctors can't seem to find a solution for- or even give me a specific diagnosis for what exactly is up with me. I've been trying to lose weight for the last 14 months, but my symptoms that end up setting me back to the beginning, completely demotivating me, and cause me to binge them feel guilty about it, and not want to get out of red and ace the world the next day, include extreme boating, fatigue, horrible mood swings, abdominal discomfort, and weight gain. This seems to happen for a couple weeks-2-3 each months, where the symptoms get worse and worse. then they subside for abit, and come back again. Each month worse than the last. I guess what I'm trying figure out, is how do I get past this? Because its really hindering my weight loss efforts. I get so upset about feeling this way, and feeling helpless because It seems lile my body is out of control, that I begin hating myself, amd get into a vicious cycle of thinking. I don't wamt to exercise, I dont want to eat-but then when I do, I end up binging. I'm not sure what to do, or how to stay motivated to even keep trying. Help!
