Calorie counting; adding up your smart points; weighing, measuring and journaling everything you eat; exercising at the gym, at home or in your spare time; stepping on the scale day in and day out; and still feel like it’s not happening fast enough? Does this sound familiar? If so, you are not alone.
Welcome to my world lately. I hear people reaching a plateau at the close end of their journey at their last few pounds. What the hell is my body problem feels like its rebelling against me and saying enough weight loss for you. I haven’t even reached my half way mark yet.
All I want to do is quit but I don’t want to go back to being heavier. I am still heavy but I can do things like I could not do before. Ever since menopause kicked in on me nothing seems to be going right. I can practically starve myself and nothing comes off, trust me I have tried to no avail. So maybe I thought it was just time to stop so I did.
Last 2 months has been so stressful in trying to sell our home and make the move from Chicago to Arizona that I just didn’t need to deal with my weight issue. Now I am sitting in a rented house waiting for our home to be ready to move into. My scales are packed my sanity is packed with it! My mind is screaming enough I feel like crap. I have made every excuse why I am not keeping on track. Plain and simple I just gave up because it was easier to deal with now.
Well not any more damn it I didn’t come so far and work so damn hard to gain and restart it again. I miss my weight watcher support group from home, it’s not the same here. I know I can do this and I will do this and I am doing this.
It isn’t as easy as I thought getting back on track but it isn’t impossible! I know enough and I want it enough and that’s a start. As I always tell my group your never alone. Just take one day and one step at a time and you got this!
Remember we are only human and this is a journey not a race =) i need to remind myself of this all the time. We need to always look back and see how much we have accomplished along the way not just the last couple of weeks. Stay strong and positive everyone we have got this!
