Don't Give Up!

Sunday, August 07, 2016

Hey there,

I am just sitting here trying to figure out why this is such a struggle. I see others out here who are struggling. People who I see as motivational, so it's reassuring to know I'm not the only one, but I can't figure out why this is so difficult for me.

I'm starting to see the weight come back on and while I'd like to pretend I don't know why, the truth is, I know why. I'm not tracking as regularly, I'm not making healthy choices, and I'm snacking too much.

I know part of this is because I don't have regular routine, and going out all the time, but I know how to make healthy choices, and I don't.

Why do I do this to myself... Why do WE do this to ourselves?

And the bigger question, how do we stop it?

I don't have the answer, but I don't want to give up. I know that much, so I'm taking this picture and I'm posting it! I can scream, I can cry (and I am!) But I'm not allowed to give up! NOT ALLOWED!!!

    I'm going through similar things right now, especially with a big cross-country move coming up in a couple weeks... I'm making progress though, of course not being where I'd like to be but progress is progress. Keep working on it and you'll get there! It's all a process!

    For me it's usually stress, emotions, sick or just sick & tired of dealing with it. I just have to make myself pull up my big girl panties and get over my tantrum and do what I need to do. If I give in, which I sometimes do, it just means I've got to get back on track or go back to where I was when I first started on SP. Thinking about that usually wakes me up enough to do the right thing. Hope this helps.

    You're getting back on track- you're here after all! You can do it!

    Please know this. That's the question I frequently ask myself. I consider myself fairly intelligent but yet I haven't been able to succeed at this. Awareness is not the problem, I'm aware when I make bad choices but until I figure it out. I can't qui

    Just being on SP means you are making steps and are concerned about your health! Good for you!
