Help Me Please, I'm Slipping!

Friday, March 08, 2013

It's going to take a monumental amount of motivation to get me back on track in the morning. Please if anyone has some words of advice I could really use them right now. I know how I'll feel about myself if I mess this up, I'm 40lbs down, but I'm so tired too...I just need to find the will, and I'm struggling ... so badly.

Please let me get up in the morning and have found the encouragement to put my best foot forward.

    How's your eating? Is that what is slipping or your fitness motivation? I find that if I can keep my nutrition in check, keep the bad foods out of my body, I have more energy and more mental clarity for all the other stuff. Good stuff in = good stuff out.

    I couldnt get to that place though, until I cut all the bad stuff out - all the processed including breads, and wheats, and sugars. Very addictive. You hear many ppl say, oh I just can't give that up... well that may be very true, like cocaine. I do not believe in all things in moderation for everyone, not if something is a bad trigger food. For that person, that food is just like crack and no one would recommend a little crack in moderation. And you only know the affects after you eliminate it, see how you feel, and then try to add it back in and THEN see how you feel.

    Nutrient deficiencies drive appetite so feed your body good whole foods. Pretty soon, when your body is well nourished, it will quit asking for so much food. If we feed our bodies junk, it just keeps asking for more in the hopes that eventually we will feed it something nourishing that it can actually use.

    Anyways, for me this has become a lifestyle. So there is just nothing to quit. Yes some days are better than others, some days are more progress than others, but it is all progress. Doesnt have to be perfection. I am doing this to take care of my health. For longevity. To be around as long as possible with those that I love. So those are things that I do not want to quit. Weight loss is a nice by-product.

    You are the only you, you have. You are worth the work. We all feel like this at times. Maybe you just need to change your routine up a little bit.40 pounds is a huge accomplishment. There are so many people that wish they could get to that point.Take a deep breathe and look over your goals and the reason your made them. Just take this journey one day at a time. It took a while to gain the weight it will take time to get it off. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
