Down and Out......

Friday, December 10, 2010

I hate not seeing results. I am so impatient it is really pathetic.
I have not been one who has had to struggle with weight much - and now that I am - if it doesn't happen right now....I get very depressed.
I was almost the opposite before I had my daughter. Wearing 0's maybe 2's..... then I had trouble getting pregnant. So - bring on the fertility drugs - that put 25 lbs on me almost immediately! Quite frankly - it's not all ever come off. I went thru spells of losing down to where I wore 6's - but no further than that - and I didn't really try.
So - bring on age.....stress......depression has taken its toll for sure. And...since I am not that 'spring chicken' anymore - it doesn't budge without lots of effort.
I am like a lot of people on here - not really thinking about it or even noticing it day to day - until I saw a picture of myself. I just broke down - and thought "can that REALLY be me???"
There are so many reasons I want to be better and look better - for my daughter - to see her do all the things I hope she will and grow up ...... for my family and most importantly - for me. If I am not in the right mindset and if I am not comfortable and happy with my life - it will not happen.
I know the things I need to change and the things that I can make better.
I just have to be committed to doing it and stick it out until I do see the results!

    It is more the matter of being on the right road rather than the potholes that are there.

    If you do the right things, the results will be there eventually. Focus on the few next feet on you, not so much on the "distance" to the goal, that will be frustrating.

    The right road always leads out to the right place.

    Jos 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

    Jos 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God [is] with thee whithersoever thou goest.

    You're right - you have to be committed. Once you make that commitment and stick with it, you'll start losing the weight. Hang in there!

    Good for you! It sounds like you know what you need to do to stay on track and reach your goals!

    Last night I wrote about concentrating on losing just one pound. You can do that. Doesn't matter how long it takes. One little pound. Then do it again. But focus on only one pound at a time. When you lose each pound you'll have a sense of accomplishment many times over, rather than feeling overwhelmed at wanting to take off a bigger amount. emoticon -- Lou

    This is such a hard time of the year - not just to lose weight but also to deal with the emotional ups & downs that come with the holidays and the stress involved. I haven't put on any weight but haven't lost any for several weeks. I know I'm not doing everything that I was doing before when the weight was coming off but I'm doing all I can do right now. Sometimes we are just at a point that we just have to "keep on keepin' on" and deal with one day at a time. Don't beat yourself up Robin - you can do this!

    Well, when I finally managed to have a child without miscarrying, my OB/GYN threatened to hospitalize me if I didn't gain weight. I do not ever want to be that skinny again. However, I do not want to look like my head is emulating a beach ball either. So a happy medium is good for me.
