Rough week- blowing off steam

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Last week was a perfect storm. I had bad PMS, slight depression and I looked at my weight from jan 1, 2012. I wigged out, was extremely mad and gave up. I only did a little exercise last week and so far this week I have walked the dogs once. I changed my calories, my exercise I lowered to 60 minutes 3 times a week and lowered my mileage to 9 miles a week- which is 3 trips around the block a week.

I have come to the conclusion that a trip to the doctor for hormone tests is the answer. I have done everything anyone has suggested- S.P. message boards, 3 trainers, all the articles. I have gained 3-4 lbs overall this year even after all the work I have put in this year... You can look at my exercise logs if you don't believe me.

I am going to re-do my rewards for my goals. I have only weight related rewards. I am going to pick, maybe like doing real push ups, pull-ups, fastest time on the bleachers, etc. or I will never get my cute hooker boots (knee high boots) or the Under Armour waterproof hoodie and pants.

My husband is being supportive and keeps telling me not to give up after how far I have come in 3 years on S.P.

    You have done amazing!!! I started SP about the same time you did - lost 65 and gained almost all of it back. Now I'm back again. BUT you wow!!! You've lost and kept it off. That is so huge. I know your frustrated and I get that - I hope you find out what is hindering you from reaching your goals.

    I'm glad your husband is supportive that's a blessing first of all! You know for the PMS you should try taking Viactiv it's a calcium supplement and if you eat 2 a day (they taste like tootsie rolls) and are committed to taking it (might not see results right away) but your PMS could actually stop all together! It's true I use to be a medical assistant at an OB / GYN and the doctors use to tell us that and the patients and so I did it and was very committed to taking it I mean it was chocolate and tasted like a tootsie roll hahaha who wouldn't be committed to that? hahahaha
    It made a huge difference with my PMS, I wasn't as moody (not that I really was) but it helped with the cravings... sometimes our bodies need that calcium and it can really throw you off... Are you taking any meds that might hamper weight loss? Have you tried chia seeds? you sprinkle them on your food , they don't taste like anything and they are filling , good for bp, cholesterol a bunch of things! look into it...
    good luck on your journey and don't get to frustrated you have a good man on your side that loves you and 3 kids who adore mommy!
    Have a Wonderful Christmas!

    Hang in there. I blew of SP a long while back, but am determined to lose the weight and KEEP IT OFF. Hormone changes can really mess you up!
