I don't know how to do this

Monday, January 28, 2013

I don't know how to be at home with a back injury and not eat myself out of house and home. I have been eating everything there is in sight and I need to stop it! I am the heaviest I have been in YEARS and I am so sad about it. I don't know what to do. I don't feel confident about myself. I have been having issues in my marriage because of it. Too many things to name. My back has been bad now for 3 weekends... so about 2 weeks, and I have gained 12 pounds in just 2 weeks! That is insane! My mom said some of it could be the medication, but no, I won't use that as an excuse. And I hate taking the medication!! I don't want to take it, but if I don't, I get horrible pain within 24 hours that won't go away since the pain meds have to get into your blood stream. Ugh, long story. But I just feel like I can't do this. But I HAVE TO!!!! In 4 weeks is the Princess Half Marathon and I am still going to walk it even if I didn't meet my weight loss goals. I haven't even met my walking goals.... The furthest I have been is 6.82 miles. Not far enough for needing to go 13.1 miles. I will try again this weekend.

    Are you getting enough sleep? I find that if I don't I want to eat all day long. Also, try to work up to drinking 8 cups of water a day. That will keep you from drinking lots of coffee, soda, juice, etc. If you drink 4-8 oz before you eat it will help you to feel fuller. I hope you can get a plan together and remember to set small goals when you do. emoticon

    Take it one day at a time. Maybe try distracting yourself with books, magazines, phone calls, etc. when you feel the need to binge. Keep in mind that this situation is temporary. emoticon emoticon

    I am so sorry about all the stress you are under right now! I know how it is to have a back injury. I also know what's its like to not feel confident about yourself and it affecting aspects of your marriage. I can only speak from my own experience to say that they (husbands) do not see us the same way we see us. My husband is so "blind" to my weight that he buys me size medium sexy stockings (yeah right) & gift cards to Victoria's Secret (as if!)! He doesn't understand my issues with it I must keep in mind that he loves me how I am. You have such a beautiful family. Just remember to keep the communication going and even get counseling if needed. As far as the being stuck at home eating: maybe you could get rid of all triggers, and keep low cal snacks available that take longer to eat (gum, lollipops, veggies, etc...). Best of luck to you! I hope you feel better soon and things improve quickly! Keep using Spark! We are here for you! emoticon
