Good Morning Sparkpeople
I have had some down time and some personal struggles. I have watched my food and continue to exercise but when I weighed in I was disappointed to see I was up 5 pounds, 5 pounds, felt like a kick in my gut....
what could I have eaten to gain 5 pounds....I have been here before. I was disappointed in myself for a while and wonder and thought how does this happen so fast and how can I stop this from happening to me. I am always scared to gain the weight back.
Then last night I was restless, and had kept as busy as I could and it was time to relax so I could sleep. I caught a repeat of one of the 600 pound shows, I did not catch all of them but found them very interesting, I enjoyed see how I must be normal as I have had some of there struggles, and seems I will continue to have. I learned that loose weight is not just loosing the weight.
As I watched these shows I saw family who were helping these people feeding then fast foods and other not so healthy foods. I also noticed that most of the 600+ pound people had most of if not all there family were very heavy too....I also notice that these people had a lt of health issues, well of course they do they were 600 pound if not more.
I have a lot of thoughts but what I wanted to share was this ....at the end of the show the doctor said to the guy who had gained back some weight and had several time. That the weight loss surgery is only a tool, he would have to work for the rest of his life, he would always have a struggle with food.
That must be for all of us, for what ever reason if you tend to gain weight you always will. Now for me I finally realized I am just like them, I never let myself get 600 pounds but we are the same, I will always need to watch my weight..I have been lucky so far, when I see I have gone up 5 pounds I get better control of my food intake and do some thing, not sure I will ever stop gaining that 5 pounds but I'll be fine as long as I keep taking it off...this journey is never going to be over, just a fact of life and seeing others with the same issues gives me hope for myself. If they can keep going so can I.....I know that sparkpeople is my tool to keep me going and being on the healthy track.
thanks again for being here for me to express my feelings....
Has anyone else watch this show, if so what do you think???are they helpful ???
Have a healthy day and never give up.....
