HELP

emoticon I'm so tired, so tired of my ups and downs with my weight loss. I can't seem to get it together, get focused long-term. I did well almost 2 years ago, I lost 40lbs. but I can't seem to get passed that. Since then, this last 2 years, I've been gaining and losing the same 15-16lbs. ongoing. For the most part, I've done well with exercising consistently (although I didn't do any at all this last week since the kids were gone-I just did absolutely nothing), but I'm battling that inner me of not caring and just eating whatever I want and not in small quantities either. I'm so frustrated with myself and my cycles, it's almost like I'm Bipolar with my weight journey. I have a wonderful life, wonderful husband and children, great job, not stressed too much, there is no reason why I can't gain control in this part of my life as well. What is wrong with me!!! I know I'm not alone, I've read so many other stories out there where people just like me have the same struggles but alas I just can't seem to understand why I'll do so well for a while and then go nuts! I'm such a sweet-aholic. I plan on starting a new day tomorrow and make better choices and start up exercising again. Maybe this time will be different.

    Yesterday is gone but today is so wonderful. The awesome thing about today is that you get to start over. If you mess up in the middle of the day you can start all over from that moment. Don't be afraid to succeed in this weight loss journey. Its is okay to be totally successful and happy in all parts of your life. You are Phenomenal and deserve it all. SO with that said pick your head up dust your pants off and shine baby shine. You and can will do it because I know you are capable of so much.

    I don't have any advice either, except to remind yourself that "you're worth it!" Instead of picking up that piece of chocolate, tell yourself you'll have it in an hour after you do something else (fold the laundry, do 100 crunches, you get the idea). Then, if you still really, really want that piece of chocolate, have it. However, I'm willing to bet that you'll tell yourself "Hey, I just burned x number of calories. I don't want to jeopardize that." Cure the sweet tooth with fruit. Have you ever tried frozen grapes? My kids loved them! Most importantly, remember you're not alone.

    Blessings,

    I'm sorry you're struggling right now. Don't have any real advise, just know that we've all been there. Take care of yourself and don't beat yourself up. I know that when I "mess up" I frequently use that as an excuse to continue to make bad choices. Learning to let go of a mess up, and move on is really important. Hang in there, you can do it!
