Why does this always happen?

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

I've had a pretty good month, overall. But it doesn't take much for the wheels to come off the wagon. I'll have a good day, a couple, maybe even a week or two. But somehow, it always comes back to just not caring very much, and the snacking and binging get out of control. Even now, I keep running over the foods in the kitchen in my head, though I am not at all hungry. At one point, I'd lost a couple pounds. Now, I've gained them back. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever be able to do this. I wonder if I have it in me.

    Thanks, everyone, for your comments. It is good to know I'm not alone. It can be hard sometimes to keep caring, but I know it's worth it. I've just got to keep going. I think this place is going to be a big help to me to keep my motivation up, or at least, keep it from sinking so far I go weeks without monitoring what's going into my body. Thanks again!

    I know exactly what you mean. I played with the same 10 pounds last year while others lost 30, 40 or even 50 pounds. So we know it's DOABLE. We just have to get rid of the diet mentality and get into the lifestyle mentality. We can do it. emoticon One day at a pound at a time.

    I have the same problem but just try to take one day at a time, even as small as one meal at a time. Look forward not back. I think logging on to Spark People keeps me at least thinking about my actions even on bad days.

    You are having one of my days. It's nice to know you are not alone right? All that food in the kichen just calls you by name. I know, I just wrote a BLog myself. You are taking the right steps now. You are getting it out by talking about it. Just make up your mind, this is what you want and get that food out of your head. It is so easy to give in, but just think how rewarding it is going to be when you finally reach your goal. YOU CAN DO THIS. Stay strong. emoticon

    I understand you very well. I am kinda like that too. But what I noticed was if I kept working out. I would at least maintained my weight. So maybe you need to start a cardio workout and see if that helps emoticon

    Sarila I have the same issues at times; what I did was get rid of all the unhealthy foods. I then replaced them with a variety of fruits and vegetables, so when my mind wanders I grab an apple, pear or a handful of baby carrots. Hope this helps.

    You can do it. You need to take one day at a time. Set yourself some goals and go from there. Don't try to do too much at once. Get yourself back on track. Good luck in your weight loss journey.
