60 days

Thursday, November 05, 2009

Well I noticed this morning that I have been on Spark People for 60 days. I have never written a blog before. So here goes. The first month was a whirlwind like I have never experienced on weight loss. I basically lost the first 30 lbs. I was shocked because I have never lost like that ever! Still puzzled by it-but happily so. Then last month around 10 lbs. Not bad. Especially being on steroids for Rheumatoid arthritis. Those tend to keep you from losing or at least make progress slow. Well now in November I keep bouncing around with the same 3 lbs or so. Lose and Gain them. Holding on to the 40lb loss but cant get over this horrid hump! Frankly it is driving me more than a little Crazy! I can feel my attitude slipping into the danger zone. You know the one. It says "Aw well why try when nothing is happening?" Yeah that one. But I haven't gone there yet. Have cried and even ranted a few times-but that isn't helping. So I tried decreasing calories and increasing moving and everything in between. I know I wont give up - But I am so discouraged! I am on track and nothing is happening. Except the awful bouncing up and down! Infuriating!

    Hi, I'm just starting on my journey so it's people like you that have given me hope. You've proven it can be done and that makes me want to keep trying, so Please don't go backward. If you do then I will see it and lose hope for myself. So just for today, look up and move on, so that I can keep believing that I can do the same.. I believe in YOU!

    Don't you dare believe the defeatist lies that scream out a mantra of failure. You have made GREAT strides already and in such a short time!! It took us YEARS to get to this weight. It's going to take some time to get it back OFF. The grand news is that we are doing this TOGETHER!! We do not have to travel this road alone any longer. I am SO thankful that you are making this journey with me!!

    emoticon on your awesome success so far.

    Definitely don't let yourself get into that danger zone. Your body is probably in panic mode, trying to save itself after you lost so much in the first two months. Eventually all will settle down and the scale will start moving again.
