Week 4: UGH

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Okay I feel like such a loser for already losing motivation in my weigh loss efforts. I just feel like it's SO hard to stop eating. My food tracker doesn't seem to reflect how much I think I eat. Maybe I'm not recording everything correctly. I'm going to start measuring my food a lot more carefully and hopefully that will help me be more sure of how many calories I'm actually eating.

I haven't weight myself in a few days but I'm afraid to see what the scale says. I'm sure it's fine but I just want results faster! I know it doesn't work like that and I hate it. I just feel really disappointed with myself in a lot of ways. It's hard to pay attention to food and exercise when I'm so busy with school.

I need to stop making excuses and just stop eating so much!

    This is very hard. No one is going to tell you it is easy. And you will slip up. There is nothing wrong with that. 4 weeks is a decent time to keep up your motivation. You just need to keep reminding yourself what you want to lose weight for. I know you're busy but you need to find some way. I am dealing with that now. I have to carve out time for me no matter what. But I am not in school yet... I don't know how I am going to do it once I am...

    Don't get discouraged. It will not be easy. Try to set small goals. Like try to drink one water instead of a pop or one veggie a week more than the prior week. once your able to attain the small goals it gives you momentum to reaching the bigger goals. you cant expect yourself to change everything right away or you will set yourself up for failure. I struggle each and every day i know how hard it is to not reaching your goals right away but as long as we dont allow ourselves to get discouraged we can do it.
    Keep pushing we can do this!!
    Here is something else I have recently began to read as well. You can take it what its worth. There is a book (or actually a study) call Made to Crave by Lysa Terkeurst. Now Its a bible study but it deals with womens issues with losing weight as well. Its not really expensive.

    Main thing is stay positive. And if you need support let me know i will help cheer you on!!
