and the reasons below hit home with me especially the first one, lack confidence.
(Reasons We Lose Motivation
There are 3 primary reasons we lose motivation.
Lack of confidence – If you don’t believe you can succeed, what’s the point in trying?
Lack of focus – If you don’t know what you want, do you really want anything?
Lack of direction – If you don’t know what to do, how can you be motivated to do it? )
I have tried over and over to lose weight. I know what I need to do to lose weight i've done it before. For me exercise is key more than diet. I know diet plays a big thing but when i exercise i do much better. Exercise does boost my metabolism which is what people who have thyroid issues need.
Well between the crashes my body has after say I exercise hard for 3 months I crash and I crash hard. Then i mope around some and try it again. This isn't healthy either, i know this. But my body and mind need rest. So then i start thinking can i do this, why do i bother, i'm only going to crash again with total body exhaustion.
I do know that my iron is really low, lower than i thought. I've been supplementing with iron for years but obviously I need more and the doctor did raise it. My adrenals are also fatigued, they are showing improvement but still they are fatigued. They think this is why i crash and burn. But when the dang nurse practitioner sits there and says diet, sleep, exercise and you are like i try and then i'm crash and i'm exhausted and can barely do anything and they repeat themselves it kinda ticks you off. If i didn't love the doctor of this practice i'd probably leave. he listens and has helped me a lot. I used to be worse off than i am now.
being tired all the time i haven't had much focus either. Hopefully with the increased iron and adrenal supplement I will start to have more focus and with focus i will be able to redirect myself and have a direction.
But it all goes back to confidence, i have to find that again, it's there somewhere. i guess i go back to flylady and babysteps.
