Gained weight back!

Friday, January 08, 2010

I am soooo ticked! I started on SP in June, 2008. I lost a litlle more than 20 pounds. Now 1 1/2 years later, I've gained almost all the weight back. I am so angry with myself. My husband and I are both retired and eat out for lunch and supper. I'm sure this has contributed to my weight gain. I am so unmotivated to do the meals at home. I've been in this rut for so long, I feel so rusty and stuck. I've been coming back here to help motivate me to get back into good habits, but so far, I haven't made or started a plan. I could have been at my goal weight by now if I had stuck to healthy habits. Now, I have to start all over, again! I"ll keep coming here and hope to kick start my motivation soon!!!!! Wish me luck!

    I understand how tough it is to get it off and keep it off but you have come back to the right place for support-. Start small-begin with just five or ten minutes a day of exercise and before you know it you will have formed a pattern or habit and look forward to that "me" time daily Many hugs and best of luck in your journey emoticon

    You are taking the right steps to get back. It is so hard to the healthy thing... take small steps to change things in your life. I fell backwards when I tried to do everything all at once. Take care!

    Believe me I know how you feel. Your story sounds just like mine. I too started about 2 years ago did wonderfully in 08. Awful in 2009 plus I gained all I lost and then some. I am very disappointed in myself too. I could have been done with this. At least the losing part and now in the maintaining part. But instead I have to start over and worst than before. I've had my emotional roller coaster and so forth..............................
    ................ I lead a team and have lost my groove. I want to just forfeit it all and throw in the towel. It would be easy. I'm used to this and used to being unhappy like this. BUT!!! I want to be healthy. I want to be an example for other women who struggle just like me and even worst to PUSH THROUGH the negativity, fears, doubts, laziness, procastination, emotional eating, depression.......... etc....

    SO.... Lets just face it and deal with it. IT IS WHAT IT IS!!! We cannot undo it and certainly beating ourselves about it will not change a thing. We need to step into action. Failing is giving up this fight. Are you giving up?
    Let's accept our setback and start over not looking back. YESTERDAY IS GONE!!! TOMORROW IS NOT HERE!!! It's all about TODAY!

    lt aint over until the SKINNY lady sings and WE HAVE NOT SANG YET? HAVE WE?
    Lets do this thing!!! The healthy way!!!

    You're back. That's the first step. Now work at figuring out how to make the changes you need to get back on track. You've done it once and you can do it again. Can you get your husband involved in SP too? It would help. If not just start on your own and he will follow.

    If you are able to afford eating out, may I suggest a food program like Seattle Sutton, or something like that. You could order the meals to the calories or restrictions you'd prefer, then just need a couple big salads per week and some fruit and milk. Just a thought...but frankly, glad you're facing those pounds down...they'll be off sooner than later!

    Don't be angry and give up!
    You want to get back at the pounds.. hit them hard with a longer walk!

    It is difficult to stay on track. You and your husband eat out a lot. That could be the culprit. I believe you can still stay on track by making the right choices when you eat out.

    Just make the mind set that you are going to get your weight off again and it will happen.
