In such a Funk....

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Ok so we're not suppose to rely solely on the scale to feel good or bad about ourselves, and I know the scale is not the only determining factor in how I'm doing overall...BUT... for me, the purpose of following a "healthy" eating plan is to drop these unwanted pounds. I've been slow to get started, and that's ok. I'm moving slowing forward, or so I thought. As I've mentioned before, tracking my food is a great challenge. Well, I started with just tracking breakfast, and added lunch...yay for me. Another yay is last week I tracked my entire day, everyday.... feeling great about my achievement, making good food choices, staying at the low end of my calorie range. Surely I would be rewarded with a weight loss... but NO, for all my efforts, I've actually gained 3.5 pounds. I'm discouraged and frustrated. Everyone else seems to have good results. What's up with me???? I don't want to give up. I know that is not the answer, but Gezzz I can't afford to gain any more weight. I just don't know what to do.... emoticon

    It is not just eating the right foods. Make sure you are getting the exercise too.

    Not to worry! Next week I will be celebrating my 4th year on Spark People. Over that time I have gained, lost, went up and down, became happy and depressed. I even took over a year off thinking that all of this was above me. Then last year I came back and had good success. We all have those times, but please don't get discouraged. Everyone progresses at their own pace. I know I am getting to my goal and, heck, it might even take me another 4 years, I might even take another year off --- I really don't know. But I persevere, and so can you. Keep with it! And remember:

    Everyone is different and although its trite to say that - its true. I had great success the first time I did this the weight just fell off and stayed off for 4 years. Then last year I had a setback where I couldn't do my cardio and the weight came back. Now I'm back with a vengeance and also am not seeing the same results I saw the first time. I know it takes time and I just need to stick with the program.

    I am feeling better and clothes are fitting better but that dang scale.

    We can do this!!!
