Back to square one.....again :(

Monday, May 20, 2013

Well...I had lost about 22 lbs back around december and I have since gained it all back again. This is about the 50th time I have lost and regained the weight. I am so tired of this and can't quite figure out why I continue to put myself through this. I start doing really well and then let it all go down the drain and have to start over again and again. I just want for once to be able to get to my goal and maintain and not go through this roller coaster any more. I have never made it to maintentance and want it so bad. I was down to about 165 in January and now am back up to 188!... I stopped working out...ate ridiculously terrible for the last few months and now am paying for it. I have seriously thought about seeing some kind of therapist about my food and weight issues to try to figure out why I continue to put myself through this. I woke up this morning motivated and ready to tackle this again. Went to the gym and did an hour of zumba which I love and am back to eating healthy. The question is how long will it last. I am going to try my hardest to stay positive and stay on the right track. I have to do this. I have to.

    Commitment is difficult, but just remember that You Are Worth It!

    I did the same thing a year ago. It's so hard to go through.. only thing I can say is to take it slow and forgive your past. Learn from it. It took me a year to get over gaining the weight back, but, once I accepted it I was able to move forward. I took it one day at a time and still do. I try and give myself challenges, but, if I don't meet them exactly I try to be happy for what I did do and try harder the next time.

    Many of us go through this. I have what I call a HOLY CRAP number. It is for when I fall of the wagon and I never want to see that number. It has at times been posted in my bathroom as a reminder that I don't ever want to see that number on the scale again. It also took me awhile to realize I'm not normal. I can't just eat what I want to and work out a little and not gain weight like so many of my friends. I had to really come to terms with that to stay the size I wanted I had to stay committed all the time. Journaling seems to help me do that.

    I have been there many times before unfortunatelly :( I think the best way to stick with it is make slow changes over time. Not have an "all or nothing" attitude, not think that if today is your day off than you can eat everything in sight, because you're gonna start tomorrow, or on Monday, etc. Because lots of times that doesn't happen...Go slow, maybe just focus on losing 1 pound a week rather than 2-4. We all want quick results and get discouraged when we don't get them right away. Good luck dear! emoticon emoticon
