Bad 2 days

Friday, October 05, 2007

I've had a bad last 2 days. I fell off the diet wagon, after working so hard for a week. I let my emotions carry me away. I let the stress get to me and I fed my depression with carbs and sugar and caffeine.
Why do some people struggle with their weight, while others seem to have the ability to eat every thing in site and never have to worry about gaining an ounce? I know the science behind it, I know the true explanation but what is the explanation that is going to make me feel better?
I have so much swimming around my head tonight. I keep thinking how unfair life is and how I can't get the things I want. Why I can't change the things about me that I hate. Why people have to be permanently scarred by mistakes they've made. I wonder why things can't be easier for me. Why can't something I want, like losing weight, happen to me when I try?
I know the standard answers to those questions. I know the encouraging pep talk that every one drills into you about just keep on keeping on. I want the answer that makes me slap my head and say now I get it, though.
Sometimes a person just gets tired of it.

    Question is... are you REALLY trying as hard as you can? You definately can change things in your life. That became easier for me when i realized that anything I really want in life.. takes a lot of work!!! You also said "I keep thinking how unfair life is and how i cant get the things i want." Number one... you CAN get the things you want, you just have to work for it. And Number 2... do you have both arms and legs? Can you see? Do you have any chronic disabilities? How unfair do you thing those people feel? People should be grateful everyday for what they have. Not to be preachy, but you should just be confident and start working for what you want!!

    I too have had a bad 2 days. I have feed on everything not good for me. But today is a new day and I'm going to take it one meal at a time and do the best that I can for me.. I realized recently that its not about everyone else its about me and it's the one thing that I can have control over in my life. I'm not saying that its easy and that everyday will be a perfect day but when I mess up I know that I have no one to blame but me and I try to do better. There is no magic answer or easy fix you just have to try not to be so hard on yourself and don't give up. I once weighed 225lbs now I stay around 130lbs sometimes less sometimes more. Please don't give up you can do it!!!
