I feel so low

Monday, November 25, 2013

I have gained six pounds in the past 5 weeks. I blame emotional overeating, meds, and lack of exercise. When I entered the number in the weight tracker I almost cried because I saw the previous entry and remembered how proud and hopeful I was when I had entered it, and now I have ruined it. Ok now it is really crying, not almost crying. Why do I do this to myself...what is wrong with me...?!

    Do not worry! We all have our "valleys". Just try "baby steps" and build on that confidence. Don't let things get you down....

    You can totally do this!

    Im sorry youre struggling. You can do this. 6 lbs can be turned around pretty quickly. Don't get discouraged. We all have bumps in the road. Its ok just stop right now and get back to it. You don't lose the game until you give up!! I know this is a difficult time of year so don't be too hard on yourself. Just start by tracking all you food. That alone is what keeps me honest. I hate going over my calorie range. If you feel like you are wanting to eat something just look up the calories and decide if its worth it. Just taking the time to think about it may stop the urge to eat it.
    Hang in there! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon I'm sorry you're feeling cruddy! Fortunately six pounds is not the end of the world. You still have a chance to pick yourself up by your bootstraps and get back on track. You haven't failed, you just tripped! emoticon

    You will get there! This is my third go round on Spark People because I suck so bad. I have figured that if I went through with my original plans I would have been at my goal weight 3 years ago, instead I lost 80 pounds and gained 40 of it back, bleck...Its such an up and down thing, especially if you are an emotional eater, work depresses me and I tend to turn to chocolate and carbs as soon as I get home. Tonight I came home from a HORRID day and ate a piece of pizza, an English muffin, and some meatballs, a TOTAL fail, but I will just work harder tomorrow and get a good sleep tonight, I am sure that you have just gotten off track and you just need to find your way back on the path again. Its not the end of the world, you will loose those last few pounds sooner than you know, just don't beat yourself up to bad :)
