In A Funk

Monday, October 24, 2011

First things first......I lost no weight this week, good thing is I gained no weight this week.

I've been in a depression, even with meds, sometimes I just can not control it, I try to get a grip of myself quickly, this time it took me ten days. those days exercise blown off, back into my room I went, laying on my bed.....thinking?........nothi
ng, not a thing, just letting the depression over take me. Yesterday I promised myself I would get up this morning, and do my exercise, eat right, and think positive thoughts, last night I prayed for help. When I first started my journey I left the Sparks page open on my lap top all day long to help me stay motivated. The day I closed this page is the day I started having trouble and back sliding, I promised myself I would take the comfort this page offers me, to be among others like me, and the encourage brought to me by you Spark friends. So here I am staying focused ..........

    So glad you were able to get yourself back here. I also suffer from bouts with depression and know how hard it is to stay motivated sometimes. I am being mildly successful for the first time in months---even though I overate on the weekend. If I can manage to eat well, my conscinece feels so much better that it helps my mood. Sometimes when I don't feel like sticking to my eating program (can't see it getting me anywhere) I just do it even though I don't know why! When I come to my senses later, I'm glad I stuck to it.

    I've read quite a few blogs of individual people from when they started until current. I was surprised that nearly every single person has periods they don't do as well, but they never give up. That must be the key. Always come back. Those same people have lost a LOT of weight over they years. In many cases a hundred pounds or more.

    Congratulations for getting back so soon. We're all here for you during your downs as well as your ups.

    HUGS - I'm sorry. We have all been in that funk. Take it one day at a time, and sometimes just going through the motions can get you moving again.

    Sometimes those detours crop up that pull us off our intended path. A momentary detour, and hopefully from the sounds of it, one that didn't take you backwards. You've found the best sources of support you can.

    You can do it; just keep writing and try again. And pat yourself on the back that you didn't gain anything. Keep it up!

    You have not given up on yourself. You now know you are the only one that can make it happen for you.

    You have the power to succeed or fail.

    You have chosen to succeed.

    Writing is progress!!!

    Baby steps. You are to be commended for recognizing what works and what doesn't .
    You didn't gain, that in itself is success. Hang in there, it will happen!!! emoticon

    Looking to positive and motivational things is the best way to get through hard times. Glad to hear that you didn't put on any weight during a rough patch. I have been plateauing for abouta week, up and down just before my next Nutrition Plan switch. Persistence pays off and asking for support. Chat any time....

    Good for you for picking yourself up again. Keep it up. I certainly can relate. I get down over not being able to lose weight and also my current job and lack of career success throughout my 25 years in the workforce. Can be discouraging. Good idea keeping your sparkpage up at all times and taking comfort. Maybe I will try that two.

    Best of luck on your journey.
