Getting Discouraged :(

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

When i first started spark in june 2008 i lost 20 pounds. i was super happy and excited.

but of course i started back to my old habits and gained almost all the weight back :(.

Now i have been trying, but for some reason i am not losing like i was the last time. I'm working out and tracking and for some reason its seems like i'm never gonna be able to lose it.

does anyone have any tips?? i'm starting to feel like its never gonna happen for me. :(

    Sometimes when you start on this journey for the first time, your body is shocked and the changes are so drastic (eating better food, less of it and moving a lot when you really didn't before) that the weight comes off very quickly and easily. But when a person falls back into previous habits, teh changes are not so new (and not so drastic since you probably kept some of the healthy habits) so it can take 4-6 weeks for your body to accept the changes and start losing again. This happened to me 2 years ago..the first 6 weeks I saw no loss, but with perserverance the weight started to come off. This is completely normal...just don't give up!

    I feel the very same way -- recently gained back 15 lbs I lost back in the fall on another program, like you, I too went back to my old habits and then some after my mom went through lung cancer surgery in early Feb. I did recognize that I was back to my old ways but didn't care and got on the scale here and there and saw the numbers climbing up again and that STILL DIDNT STOP ME, I can't answer why -- I go through these ABUSE cycles but I'm SO DONE with that now, if this is a Journey, I've got to take a new path and CLOSE SOME SERIOUS OLD ONES OFF!!!! If this is GOING TO WORK, I'm GOING TO HAVE TO WORK!!!

    Please we are all here for support and no one needs it more than I do with 100+ lbs I NEED to lose NOW!! But it's a step process, change somethings up and around and you'll see it will kick in!! :) Go OUTSIDE your COMFORT BOX!!! Keep in touch and GOOD LUCK, feel free to write ... :0)
