Not sure I can pull this off

Monday, June 29, 2009

I log in, I earn points, I was feeling pretty darn good about myself and my healthy habits, I try to support others on their journey and lord knows so many support me on mine. I'm not mad, I'm not depressed, I'm just coming to the conclusion that things aren't going to change. The weight hasn't budged (of course to know for sure that would require me to get on the scale and I'm just not going to do that right now) but I know my clothes aren't looser. I quickly glance in the mirror to know enough that my body hasn't slimmed down. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong, doing right, doing neutral - I'm just so damn embarrassed by my appearance, I'm getting to the point of just hiding. It's so frustrating, because everyone says 'you can do it' - but clearly, I'm not doing it.

Not sure I can pull this off, not sure where to turn or what to do next.

    You are SO going to pull this off! Don't even doubt it. I hear that you're frustrated. It is frustrating to not see results, but hang in there. If you keep at it, you WILL make progress. Just keep taking it one step at a time and you'll get there. I promise. Give yourself more time. Remember, this is a long term commitment.

    p.s. your doggies are about the cutest things I've ever seen! I'm in love!

    I get those Who Cares, or I Don't Care moments quite often. I yo-yo all the time, but I still try again. At my highest weight, I was 299. I just consider the fact that even though I was 229.8 this morning, a weight increase for the 2nd week in a row, that it's less than the 299 that I was. I'm better off today than I was 7 years ago. Every time you fall, you need to get back up. You NEED to get back up. It's a must. We cannot give up. If we don't care about ourselves, then how can we expect or believe anyone else will? We need to love ourself enough to make the change. We know that we have tons of Sparkpeople to motivate us and to back us up. But we need to be able to motivate ourselves and back ourselves up. To get up when we fall. To forgive ourselves and pull up our bootstraps. To believe in ourselves because our Sparkfriends do!

    Please remember we did not put this weight on over night and we will not get it off over night..It may be slow but it will be worth it in the end...

    Set a small goal for your self and then when you reach that goal maybe you can set another small goal and then before you know it you will be there..

    Please keep me up to date ..I care..
