Discouraged about my weight loss!!!

Monday, May 18, 2009

I am very down, because I am not losing weight like I would like!!! Maybe
I am trying to do too much at one time. Almost have quit smoking, and that is good.
Now I want the weight to go down. I will keep trying, and am not giving up!!!

    what I've decided to do ont his my 1000th time around to losing weight.. I'm on day 3.. On June 16, 2009 I will weigh myself for the first time since I started losing weight.. For me, the first month is always the hardest because I lose a lot of water weight at first, then gain some back.. it's a crappy roller coaster.. so I've decided to not weigh myself the first month and have it be a surprise.. :D maybe putting more space between weigh-ins will help you show your progress a little better than weekly or even daily weigh-ins.. :)

    Any progress is good progress - and quiting smoking is great progress. I would not worry about speed but consistancity. That way you won't fall back the moment it is not something you are thinking about. For the record, I'm very slow at losing weight and keeping it down. For nearly 4 weeks now I go back and forth between 162 and 165, but I am gaining in how far I can go with my jog, or how long I can work out. The later is a much better positive than the former is a negative.

    Besides... we all know the story of the tortoise and the hare... and it isn't the hare who wins in the end. :-)
    (Not saying quick weight loss is bad, just that not everyone or body type can do that and be healthy.)

    It can be very discouraging-I know. But keep going-keep weighing and measuring your food. Put everything into your tracker. Keep moving!
    You can do this! That's a great accomplishment about your smoking!!!
    You have the right attitude about not giving up. emoticon

    I have a very hard time to loose weight too ,just don t give up try over and over again one day you will be able to stick to the plan I chew on those baby carrots late at night when I "need extra food" and it worked for the last couple of days so good luck hang in there emoticon

    Good on you for not giving up! One thing that I find helped me is every morning as I'm brushing my teeth thinking positive things about myself. Even if they were just things like "Your hair looks nice today" or "You coped will with dinner last night".

    People may mock optimism in the present day, but the more positively you think the easier life gets! Best of luck to you! *hugs*
