How to Stop from Feeling Like “Throwing in the Towel” on Myself?
Thursday, September 02, 2010
Have been of SP for a couple of months because I felt overwhelmed and depressed with how my life is going and just felt like I couldn’t focus on one more challenge, like my weight loss. Unfortunately, I have now gained back all the weight I lost, plus some, and am at the highest weight I have ever been. I know this is probably a common story for other members on here, so I am asking for help, advice, etc., how do you get past it? How can I not feel like it’s too hard and just give up? Because right now, these feelings are overwhelming me and I feel like crying constantly. I have no one to help me watch my son and not enough money to pay a babysitter in order to make the time for myself to sort things out, talk to someone, exercise, whatever. I do try to give myself pep talks everyday, but they feel phony, like I am lying to myself, and I can hear the other voice in my head that is sad, angry, etc. I try to plan out my time and something always seem to pop up and take over anything good that I had planned to do for myself.
I am hoping that someone here will tell me something I haven’t already heard and strike a chord in my heart that will motivate to take charge of my life and start really paying attention to what I am doing to myself, rather than eating or drinking away my feeling. HELP!
