I quit.

Monday, October 29, 2012

I'm burned out. Frustrated. With a lot of things. I quit working out. I started eating everything, whatever I wanted whenever I wanted it. I've gained a lot of weight in a short period. I stopped cleaning my house (yep, it's gross). Maybe I'm making this out to be worse than it is cause I'm sick, but this train has really gone off the tracks. It's out of control. Every good thing I was trying to do, I quit.

Now I feel like I'm starting from scratch. Ugh.

I'm just hoping that maybe starting from scratch means I'll build a better foundation that won't crumble on me again.

    Oddly enough, this blog is just what I needed to hear as I struggle with wanting to eat more than I need today. The way you express your struggle is helping me with mine.

    I hope you find your own answer, your own motivation, and your own way to get back on the track to where you want to go.

    This happens to EVERYONE at some point or another. Your blog sounds exactly like me right now. I was doing so well and then BOOM something inside me changes and I quit doing all the good things and start doing all the bad things again.

    Here's hoping that November is a fresh new start for all of us! WE CAN DO IT!

    Starting over is not so bad. As it was said in a previous post, forgive yourself and start over...just always remember to never stay on the couch emoticon

    What I had to learn at long last was that I didn't have to be perfect all of the time...we all go through down periods - and I bet I can beat you on the dirty house part, and possibly the rest of it as well right now. Just make small steps once again...

    I too am going through this phase right now. We all do. What matters most is not that we fall off the wagon, what matters is that we get back up & try it again. Hang in there. emoticon emoticon

    You can do this! We can help! What do you truly want in your life? What are your hearts desires? Can the answers to these questions help you realize you are worth the effort? For me following the nutrition tracker, daily, for the rest of my life, will help me release & maintain. My answers to these questions ARE what is helping me, heal! I hope this helps!

    I do hope that you will forgive yourself and just move on towards a healthy life. You can be such a good example for your son.
    Have a good week. You can do it.

    Hang in there and emoticon I too stopped making healthy decisions and now I'm paying price for it. BUT I'm not throwing in the towel just yet and by your blog, you haven't either!! Starting from scratch might be a good thing. It gives you the chance to make some things better. emoticon You got this! emoticon emoticon

    Everyone has gotten off track, quit eating right, not exercising. Losing weight is something the person has to want to do. Just like a drug addict they have to want to quit. They will not quit UNTIL THEY WANT to. The same goes for us losing weight. We won't make the effort to do it until we are ready. We are here for you. Lean on us when you need to.

    Starting from scratch is still starting and that is a major part of getting out of a rut. You probably should look at it as a setback and not as a stop and start. You're so aware of your situation that I find it as progress. Too many people do not even realize they are no longer doing things to be healthier and happier and you have realized it. Major breakthrough and since I have had moments just like that, I can relate. What I did is kind of silly but I'll share it anyway. To myself I say, yes I ate a half of a large pizza (and I still do every other week) but it had two servings of veggies on it, no I did not go to the gym but I walked a mile around the house (shallow pep talk I now) and if I log it in my journal, then I somehow feel better. I do not log pizza but I just check off 2 veggies. I know your foundation will be stronger. Even for the times you fall off a regime, there is all the time you were on it that counts toward your healt. Your special and worth it.
