I completely understand what you are saying. I agree with BFITNHAPPY, but instead of trying one new thing a DAY, just try it out for a WEEK or a MONTH. LOL at myself. But, seriously, for me I have to stick to one or two new things. Like 8 cups of water and staying under 2000 calories. I have noticed that after inputing the calories, I will make adjustments for healthier, lower calorie or lower fat, etc. foods. Just these 2 things and I have noticed I can bend over easily and my jeans are not so tight.
AND, when or if you fall off track, tell yourself, "I can do this." Psych yourself UP, and remember it will take time so don't get discouraged! So stay focused on one thing and stay psyched about yourself!!!
Pick yourself up by talking to or seeing someone you like and who makes you feel good (BUT not about food, fat, exercise, calories). Talk about something that makes you laugh and smile and validates you. And, try not to think about your ex and your mom - two dangerous subjects for me too! 5180 days ago
You can do this Katharine! Maybe you can just change one thing at a time instead of trying to do too much? I love the One Day Challenge board for that reason..just one thing a day and pretty soon you are thinking differently. I can't put myself in your shoes but weight loss is not a smooth line...its a lot of ups and downs. Keep on pushing... Denise 5181 days ago
