Trying to get control

Tuesday, February 04, 2014

I am trying so hard to get it under control... by "it" I mean everything. My eating, my life, my exercise.. I have been working out and I feel myself getting stronger again considering I started over now that I hadn't worked out in 8 months. It's so frustrating to keep giving up on myself.

I have been back at this for 3 or 4 weeks now. I don't really have a support system at home and have absolutely no one to be active with me and share in the activities that I do enjoy.

I have goals, and every day that ticks by they seem less attainable because I am not seeing the progress that I want.

Maybe.. I'm just beyond frustrated right now and stressed out and that's why I'm not seeing progress. If I had the power to change some situations in life to make my weight loss and goals more attainable I would. However, I do not, but how do I accept that?

    That you're getting stronger is indeed progress. You may not be seeing the results, and the scale/measurements may not reflect change, but sometimes it just takes time. Don't give up on yourself!

    And stay active here. I know it's not the same as having someone sweat it out right there beside you, but it's close. Knowing that someone else is sweating it out on their own, just like you, helps. It's nice knowing you have somewhere to come to share your triumphs (and even setbacks), and know that many here are in the same boat and will understand.

    Finding support--even "just" online--is a huge help in the de-stressing department. You can vent or absorb inspiration. Mostly, you can just interact with other people. It helps, truly.

    Best wishes!
