I just don't know anymore!

Friday, October 01, 2010

Soooooo frustrated! I'm starting to lose my confidence in the fact that I can do this. I have always considered myself a strong person, food stronger than me? Can I really do this? I just feel like I have been trying to lose weight forever and every time is another let down. Am I really strong enough to do it?

Of course, I will continue to try because I hate being fat, but honestly, I'm starting to get discouraged. When I look at the success stories on SP and visit the pages of other Spark Members, they all talk about how hard it was to lose so much weight. But they ended up getting it done. But what is it that they possess that I don't? I feel like a let down. Maybe I entered into this weight loss journey think that it would be easy. Maybe I'm trying to do too much at once. Trying to change to many things at once. I guess I have to take it slow and easy. Results won't show up overnight. But I understand this. My issue is that I try to eat right, and most of the time I do. But when I have a set back, I really have a set back. I eat huge portions of ice cream, french fries, cookies, etc. What can I do to avoid this? I need to build up will power some how. Some days I have it others I do not.

Well, I'll just take it one day at a time. I'll see what happens tomorrow.

    Thanks ladies! Love the advice. Concentrating on today is the best thing I can do for myself. Im slowly learning that. Its hard though, when you mess up on the previous day, not to think about it. Its also hard to tell that little girl "no" even though I will regret eating whatever it is that I ate. But Im slowly learning how.

    Hi sweetie... my successes are coming because I am learning to "love myself more than food" It's a simple concept that works miracles!!!

    I concentrate on one day... TODAY. I don't beat myself up for yesterday or waste one moment on worrying about tomorrow. All we have is today and WE can do what needs to be done for 24 hours at a time. Heck 8-10 of those hours we are in bed any way so that leaves 15 hours we can concentrate on "loving ourselves more than food"

    Suggestion... the next time you want to "eat huge portions of ice cream, french fries, cookies, etc." Gently tell that little girl inside who's looking for comfort, "No" Gently whisper to her that you love her more than food and she deserves to be healthy and happy. Feed her fruit instead and you too shall find the strength and the will to "Love yourself more than food"
