So discouraged!

Monday, March 17, 2014

Well, here I am, trying to figure out why I can't seem to do this. God knows I'm motivated - at least I think I am! I am at the heaviest I've been since my kids were born. I can't stand it - but why can't I stick with this?? I start off my days thinking "this is it! I'm going to keep track of what I eat and be very careful" but then I have something that's hard to track and that's it.

I had my gall bladder removed 2 weeks ago, and am finally back to feeling like I am mobile again. So, I'm going to try... again. I feel like a yo-yo.. my weight fluctuates so much! I can be really careful with what I eat and still gain. It is quite discouraging.

I tried removing wheat from my diet; although I felt better, I did not lose any weight. However, my teenage daughter did and she looks amazing!! I’m so proud of her and happy that it worked for her!

I purchased PGX pills - supposed to help suppress appetite. I’m not one to take pills, but clearly I need a push here. Maybe once I start to lose, I’ll be more motivated..?

I'm turning 50 in June and I really don't want to be this heavy ...

    Funny you should mention dancing to songs... I did that yesterday and my daughter ran away.. she said I looked like a retarded flamingo.. LMAO (ok, so I was kind of doing it on purpose lol)

    Other than my glass of wine with dinner, I stuck to my plan for the day! let's see how tomorrow goes.

    So baby steps it is!

    I am going through the same thing right now. I went gluten free in January and I feel better. I have so much more energy and just feel good. But I have not really lost any weight. I have added a lot of exercise to my life and can see the difference in my body. My clothes fit better but still the scale does not move. I'm trying to not focus on the scale. I only weigh in once a week and I know if I keep at it the scale will show results too. It has to! Gluten free is a big difference and a process and if you make to many changes at once it's harder. So I am making one change at a time. I am just a year younger and think it just takes the body a little longer to respond as we get older. Try to stay positive and the it will happen! emoticon

    You can do it!

    Try not to get frustrated ( I know how impossible that sounds).
    Try not getting on the scale for a while and making 1 small change at a time. I could not have gone from full scale couch potato and eating horribly, to exercising every day and eating right in 1 day. I would have been too discouraged and felt too deprived.

    I made 1 small change at a time. nothing after dinner, then changing 1 snack or meal at a time to healthy. 1 dance song, 2 dance songs, 1 video, video and gym.

    If you take it slow and make small changes it doesn't seem like it is as hard.

    Good Luck
