Hi all sorry but I guess I need support. I have no idea why but I just cant get my mind back on track. I am actually thinking about just not doing it anymore. I just am so tired of the roller coaster. I feel like I just should get off and quit. I do not want to keep fighting at this. Just feels like a lost cause to me right now??

Sorry I have to be honest as to where I am at right now. Too many negatives no positives. Just causing me more issues. Hate feeling like this too.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers. I really have no advice as there are many days when I wonder...what am I doing???

    Thanks for your honesty.
    I was thinking similar thoughts not that long ago. I encourage you not to quit but to ask yourself the following questions:
    Are my goals realistic for me?
    Should I work at trying to accomplish smaller goals?
    Am I making changes to my diet, lifestyle, exercise regime that are realistic for me and
    can be incorporated into my life on an ongoing basis?
    The change process is never easy but what is it worth to me?
    Best of luck SPfriend. Hang in there! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Please don't give up on YOU!

    Your worth it.

    I've had troubles as of late also.

    Shoot been here on SP for over 5+ years and I can't say I've lost any real weight because I have not in fact my weight has been a yo-yo for a long time.

    I can't always eat healthy because of my food budget:( but when I can I do.
    I also eat because of emotions I let them get the best of me:(

    Take a new look at what you have been doing you'd be surprised at what you have done.
    Even if your taking two steps forward and then one step back your at least doing some thing.
    For one thing your not a quitter other wise you would not be here:)

    I'm here to cheer you on to a better you, I know you can do this together we can & will do this!

    Maybe you are trying too hard and to many things........just do one thing, like drinking water--start with 2 or 3 glasses today then add one glass each day instead of trying to do 8 glasses in a day-----don't overwhelm yourself.........you can do this one tiny tiny step at a time.......don't worry or focus on the weight......get into the healthy routine first then the weight will drop off by itself.........if not exercising---walk to the end of your drive or your mailbox every day for 1 or 2 weeks-----soon you will feel like walking a little farther and then a little farther....if you miss a day.....no big deal....pick up the next day......don't start over, go from where you are......it took me over 4 months to climb out of the big black hole but in the mean time plenty of people were holding on to me so I didn't slip farther and farther down.......I have a hold of you so you won't be slipping any farther.......we can climb together........Elsie (saintbernard6)......God is holding both of us even when we can't see or feel Him He is always there...

    Are you in Michigan? I grew up in Lansing and will be in Michigan at the end of this month.

    I'm there now, but ya know, you just can never give up, because if you do you are lost for sure in the food and all that comes with it. I know it is really difficult to get up when you are that far down (I know cause I have been there, and in fact am deeply there today), but I also know from my past experience that you CAN pick yourself up and feel fantastic. And, yes, I know it is like a roller coaster; but the ups and downs do get less as you work out why you have been eating and learning how to change things. I am really down today from yesterdays binge, but I have no intention of giving up because I remember how much better I have been feeling as I made improvements in my program; and I do hope that you don't give up either.

    We're in this fight together; lets keep in it to win it!!!

    Wow. Been there. Done that. But I log onto SP each day. I figure one day it has to click. I just take it day-by-day, hour-by-hour. Some days... minute-by-minute.

    Just do one small thing today, two small things tomorrow and keep going until you reach goal. I don't even have a concrete goal anymore. I just want to be healthier today than I was yesterday.

    emoticon First of all, we all feel like this from time to time. It's hard to focus on exercise and eating right when it feels like we have all these other issues around us. It's important to have that strength every day to get you through! I don't know where you are in your Faith, but God has always been there for me in my life. He has never forsaken me. I admit at times he has had to correct me when I rebelled against him, but he always loves me, no matter where I am in my life! I pray to him when it feels like I want to give up because giving up means I am giving up on myself! My encouragement for you today is even when things seem like they are piling up around you, don't give up! Just ask God to come into your heart and he will give you this tremendous feeling of peace like you have never experienced! It is a life long process, but God is always there!
    God bless you and I hope things get better soon! emoticon emoticon emoticon
