Why am I still on this rollercoaster? Why do I keep making excuses? Why don't I just get with it?

Ugh! I was almost to my second goal, and then I just lost it. Now I have to re-lose weight I have gained since February. I have a ton going on, a ton of stress, etc. Like all of us. I know how to lose the weight, I know SP works....I am having a hard time getting back into it.....AGAIN.

I am having a dress made for me to wear to the Renaissance Festival in September. When I bought the pattern I was in a size 14, now my size 14's are TIGHT! My dress isn't going to fit. I have been putting off trying it on and the dressmaker is getting upset with me because she can't proceed until I go try it on. And I bought some new clothes as an added inspiration. Boy, did that back fire.

I have no energy to exercise. I am exhausted most of time. I know I would feel better if I just got off my $%^ @#$ and worked out. I will keep plugging away and hopefully one day it will stick.

    Jill - You CAN do this!!!! I am going thru the same thing right now!!!! I was 310# when I had GBS!! I lost down to about 155#!!!! Size 28 down to size 12!!!! BUT, I got lazy & my life beat me up & now I am back up to 215-220#, size 20-22!! I just can't beleive after all I went thru that I would allow myself to regain the weight, but I did!!

    Well.........NOW, I am starting back on track with "BABY steps"!!!! I set one reasonable, attainable goal per day & that is what I work on!! Like drinking 8C of water a day!!!! Or, taking a 15 min walk!!!!

    You CAN & WILL do this!!!! We are in this together!!!! I am here for you!!!!

    I had the same problem with my wedding dress. Tell your tailor that you might need a last minute alteration and see if she's good with this. Don't fall into judgment and self-hate. Just start each day with a vow to love and support yourself with yummy, nourishing food and fun activity.

    Oh, boy! Do I know the feeling! I've been going through the motions since earlier in the year. There are times I wanted to quit, but I know that if I do, I will gain it all back again. I did gain back about about 15 pounds that I am struggling to get off again.

    I do know that as long as we don't quit, we haven't failed! We just need to keep plugging at it!

    Have you thought about starting your program over again - just resetting the goals and being "new" again?

    Whatever you do, DON'T stress out about it! That will only make you feel worse than you already do.

    We can lick this! I know we can! Let's keep pushing ahead!

    Hugs! Beverly

    You can do it dear. You have a few things going for you. You have a goal in mind, you know what you have to do, and you have the tools to do it. But, be careful of letting that stress get to you. Take 10 mins, to destress. That stress can be a killer. Wishing you the best.
