Yo-Yo Dieter

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

A few months ago I posted this: YOYO DIET Award! If they gave an award for THE BEST YoYo dieter, I am confident I would be a top contender, humbly....probably the winner! Wooohooo, I am so good at it! :+/  Still yo-yoing with the same 10 lbs from several months ago. Feeling down and disappointed because now I am 10 lbs off the mark of my mini monthly goal. And worse, 30 lbs from my overall goal. I know this is all relative and we each have our wins and losses on our journeys. The slightest changes, especially with food, just throw me way off track. I get bored with the meal plan that does work for my weight loss, or social commitments revolving around food are where I trip up. Like the ups and downs of a yo-yo in motion, sometimes I feel hopeful and others I feel hopeless about my weight and ability to succeed at this. I see my pattern, I just wish this was easier. Thanks for letting me vent.

    I'm there with you. I exercise, I eat healthy food, I eat too much. I seem to be stuck where I am. I keep trying but I yo-yo too. Hang in there and keep going. I will too!

    Don't beat yourself up girl. We all have our up's & downs. I have been off the wagon for 2 wks now :/ I need & will get back in track because deep down I know it's for my own good, my health & wellbeing. It is hard! But we have to keep pushing!!

    at least you're maintaining... If you gained 10 and then didn't lose it.. Gained another 10... You'd be complaining about the 20. It's hard sometimes, just be patient with yourself. Your not hopeless.. You can do it!

    We all need to vent. I have been struggling also. Life throws me a curve, and I get off track... ugg.

    I completely understand. I yo yo 8 lbs all the time. I get bored with eating the same stuff and can't pass up the sweets. It's hard. It seems even when I eat well I don't lose unless I exercise constantly. Oh well we keep on going. Healthy is better
