Why's Are Pointless... I just have to start again.......Hay Im new......

Wednesday, November 22, 2017

End of Aug Start of Sept, Things all seemed pretty good for the most part... I was 'On trackish' Eating & health wise...
......Then bang!!
3 Bereavements in less than a month... That will do that to you...
Don't even ask me where my head or my thinking was at...
I do remember at one point thinking something along the lines of ... "Whats the point.. or Life is way too short, & does it really matter anyway"

But Is Really does matter, ( To me it sure does matter) & I don't want life to be short. I want to string it out until the last moment & go out screaming No not yet!!!
& The Point is that I want whatever time I have left to be Happy & Healthy & have a life filled with happiness & laughter & fun & friends & memories & hay. Maybe even love.....

So.... All that being said. I got back the preverbal wagon... Cleaned all the bad/naughty /evil food from every cupboard in the kitchen & gave it to my lovely slim neighbour :)

That's it I thought. Now just do what I know to do ( I'm doing 'Low Carb/ Keto) .. Eat healthily, incorporate some if ( Intermate fasting) & Bingo... The Rest will be History...

Sadly that is not how this story went... I'm actually writing this in tears.
After a week I've actually gained 2lb :(
I've kept my carbs low, no sugar or processed crap, cooked & weighed meals from scratch.....
What the Floof am I doing wrong?
That's why I'm here... I just can't do this on my own anymore.

In the last 5 years, I have lost 4 of my dearest friends... Sometimes I really do feel so very alone. Yeah, I go on FB & are like " hey yeah, everything's great"
But it's not great. I'm not Great. Don't get me wrong.... I'm not looking for a pity party. I have a ring around my ass from sitting on the dam pitty pot for way too long as it is....... Mostly I just need help & people who understand & can motivate & inspire me... & just kick my ass when I need it... & show me where I'm going wrong & teach me from their mistakes....
That's what has brought me back to SP :)
So Hi guys. I'm Mel. Pleased to meet you. Any Help Always gratefully received. Thanks in advance :) Mx

    emoticon Sorry about your loss.

    I do love cats.

    Watch the documentary on NetFlix "Feel Rich: Health is the New Wealth". There are clips of it on YouTube.
    These people lost a lot of love ones as well.

    Stick with SP and its plan and you will hit your goals. I tried every possible "diet" for 40 years and only did the Yo Yo result. SP gives a balanced way to enjoy life and be healthy.

    Hello Mel and welcome from another crazy cat lady. (Well I only have 4 of the little furballs, does that count?!?) emoticon

    I'm glad you are here, on the way to that happy and healthy lovely long life! Try not to worry too much about the 2lb gain. That might just be your body wondering what on earth you are doing and going into panic mode. Just keep doing what you're doing and your body will relax and get the hang of it.
