Feeling sorry for myself....

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Today, I am the same size I was six weeks ago. Not one pound lost. So, I have my dr run my blood work to see if it is my thyroid, and all the numbers are within range. I don't know what i am doing. I feel like such a failure right now. Not a pound, not an inch, and after trying to do the carb cycling....I am so disappointed in myself. I feel so very stupid...

I have stopped eating out for breakfast everyday, I have started to drink at least 160 ounces of water a day. Fruits and vegetables. There is just not something I am doing right. Have been walking for about an hour a doctor said it wasn't enough. She said that our bodies adapt to it. Right now though, that's all I find time for.....

Too many excuses. I don't know what i am doing wrong. I guess I will have to get super aggressive. Be like those folks on the biggest loser and the people that chris powell helps.

Am I cursed to be this big unhappy person?

Feeling super blue today.

I think I have been so super afraid of failure that I have not given my all. I need motivation. Just don't know what to do. emoticon

    Like another poster said, your blog entry is breaking my heart. I truly feel for you, and want you to know that you're not alone. Every single one of us has been there. Losing weight is simple, but it's not easy.

    That being said, have you tried any of Chris Powell's techniques for the strength training and cardio workouts? It will definitely help add some variety to what you're doing, and it won't take any more time than you're already putting into it!

    Dust yourself off, recommit to your goals and keep on moving forward. Tomorrow is going to come anyway, so you might as well make it the day you want it to be.

    don't despair .... keep your body fooled and try something different every other day .... exercise is the key .... I also found if I just walk I stall so I jump on my mini trampoline and walk and ride my bike .... it really helps ... Roc

    I have been there and I know that it's hard not to be discouraged. I get depressed at times when the scale don't move and even worse when it moves in the wrong direction, but I know where I would be if I did nothing. 2 years ago I stepped on a scale that told me I was obese and the heaviest that I could imagine myself being. All that has changed now even though the losses come slowly these days I know I made the right decision to get on this journey to good health and so did you. Benny

    You are NOT cursed! Don't give up. Those changes you're making will eventually get you the results you want. It's taken me almost 4 years to lose the weight I have so far, some months I lost NOTHING. The most I'd ever lose in a week was 2 pounds and that was only once or twice. But I stayed the course and to date have lost 78 pounds. It's not easy and it's hard to not get discouraged, but, YOU CAN DO IT!!!! Just please, please, please, don't give up, it's not hopeless.

    This breaks my heart. Please don't be hard on yourself! You are doing a GREAT job with healthier eating and walking for an hour a day! If you try to do much more, you'll burn out. Just keep doing what you're doing, and you will start to see success, even if it's not right away. Something you could try if you want, is measuring yourself. So even if you don't see any change on the scale after a month and a half, then measure and you're bound to see changes there, especially with the walking. (that should help with toning.) Just keep on keeping on, and know that you are doing all the right things. Just don't give up!
