Off the Path and Outta Control

Saturday, February 26, 2011

Ok, I have finally gone wildly out of control and the wheels have come off the bus.
After struggling for over a year to lose the 15 pounds I have gained since I quit smoking Oct. 2009, I am at my wits end. The extra pounds have decided to park themselves in the area between my waist and mid thighs. The muffin top is not an attractive look. Ugh! The extra weight has a death grip on me and refuses to let go. Not to mention that most of my clothes that do still fit are really tight.
As of late I have even kind of taken the attitude of why bother watching what I am eating because it doesn't seem to matter. And my nutrition tracker definitely shows it.
I have also gotten lax on my workouts and that just isn't me. But, nothing I have done so far has even budged the scale. So Frustrating!
It's really hard to stay focused and positive when I seem to be getting nowhere.
I worked really hard to get healthy and back in shape when I joined SP. And now that I have given up a horribly unhealthy bad habit; I find myself struggling with a weight issue again.

    I hear you ! We have to try and kkep encouraging each other. My BP is up and I am sure it is a combo of stress and weight. We have to think of ways to get ourselves motivated again. Let's get that too tight feeling of our clothes back to ahhhh, that's better. I am trying to set some weekly goals after I get over this cold. If that doesn't do it - day to day goals. Maybe seeing small pieces may work better? I'm here strugglling with you!
