Ready to quit

Friday, October 12, 2012

I think I am ready to give up. I have not been losing weight. I have been working out and eating right, nothing is changing.. in fact, I am gaining more weight and I feel so discouraged. So I think it is time to throw in the towel.

    Yes, I am faithfully doing all that I can.

    I am proud of my accomplishments I'm eating healthier than ever and drinking more water than soda, and I don't completely dread working out. I enjoy it more times than often. I feel like my issue right now is that I am in school and I have such a hard time trying to work out as often as I used to. In the summer I went running every morning and now being at school, its different because my days start early and end later. I also get so much pressure from my mom who constantly asks if I'm "skinny" I try to explain to her this is not a magical thing, that you don't just wake up a new person. and she seems to not understand. I dont feel much encouragement from anyone, honestly. It's like everyone expects me to be smaller and it's been like 4 1/2 months since I started. emoticon

    If you have been truly honest with your logging foods, and regularly doing some form of exercise, and you have not lost anything in months, go to the doctor, see if you have a thyroid problem or some other medical issue.

    If you have not lost any weight in like a month, that happens, especially if you have been yo-yo dieting for years. I'm going on over 2 years with SP, I've lost 35 pounds so far, but its a long road when you are trying to live a normal life, feed a family on a budget, and can't spend hours exercising every week. Its slow, but you can lose weight and be healthy, you just have to be realistic on how fast your going to lose it.

    You have not noticed any changes at all in your body shape?

    If you give up, you will never lose it. Small changes over time can make a huge difference, you just have to give your body time.

    Don't give up. I know it's hard, it 's hard for me. But remember what you want. I'm pulling for you! I know you can do it. I did it, and thought of giving up a lot. But I'm worth it, and so are you.

    I hope you do not give up on yourself. Have you tried to change your food and fitness routine? I find that my body gets used to certain foods and exercise and they do not work long term so every 6 months i change and keep my body guessing what is coming next.
    I also suggest you think about adding green juice to your journey to better health it has really helped me. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    When you want to quit, think about why you started in the first place. You have done so well and you can get over this little hurdle! We all feel like quitting at some point but push past it and you won't regret it emoticon

    You can do it! emoticon

    Don't give up..... Go back and reaffirm your goals. . . . do you still want to achieve them? If not, then modify them. If so, then keep pushing . . . . what you're working for may be right around the next corner . . . . . just don't give up.
