Goal Day

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Well, today was my goal day. I wanted to be out of the 170's by my birthday - today.
Instead, I've discovered that I'm farther into them. Not only have I not lost weight - I've gained.
I'm now exceeding what before had been my highest non-pregnancy weight.

I am feeling beyond discouraged right now. emoticon

    I hate to see ya so discouraged Ronnie, keep your chin up! I have been down this road so many times and I don't know what else to say, except God CAN change your views about this whole thing. He can change your heart and only He can get you through this! I bet by now that I sound like a broken record to you, but this is all I have.

    Lifting you up in my prayers right now and encourage you to take some time with the Lord and really pour your heart out to him and give some stuff over to Him! You can do this!

    I read your previous posts, and it sounds like you're in a negativity cycle. Don't beat yourself up! You need to attack the monster one day at a time, and if you slip up, forget it and tackle the next day.

    This worked for me ... I set very small goals for myself. I hardly ever think about my long term goal weight - instead I focus on a daily or weekly at most goal. I think of my long-term goal in terms of 5 lbs. per month, which is very do-able. I'm not even half-way there, but I celebrate every pound lost as a victory.

    Sarah is right I think - you still need to find the program that'll work for you. I eat almost anything I want (excluding the obvious, like greasy fast food) except I eat less of it, but that doesn't mean it would work for you. Experiment with low carb, no white food, or the WW points system ... and don't get discouraged. There's a program out there that WILL work for you - you just have to find it!

    Be nice to yourself - you deserve it!

    170 is just a number. And really what is an arbitrary number? As a newer member I would love to be near that number. But I started my day by writing down what I ate, drank a big glass of water and signed on to get motivated by Spark. You hang in there. You're already ahead of the game in my book!

    I am so sorry that you are so discouraged right now. If you have been doing everything right then this could just be water weight. If not, then just get back on the track and turn this discouragement into determination and soon you can say you are into your 170's. It can be done and I KNOW you can do it. Don't let the scale beat you....you are an awesome person and just need to get right back on the program and soon you will reach your goal!!! I KNOW YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!
    Hugs,
    Sarah
