So Fed Up with myself

Friday, September 13, 2019

I have proven that no matter how badly I want to eat healthy and live a healthy lifestyle ( in my head ) I simply am not capable of doing it. I start off not too badly for a week or so but thats it. I go right back to the unhealthy eating and unhealthy habits ( like drinking pepsi ) ( going thru fast food drive thrus) eating in restaurants, eating at night like food was going outta style!!!! In my head I know all the right things to do, the right things to do and not do. Seems simple enough but I guess not simple enough for me. I am so fed up with myself right now. I do not want to be FAT the rest of my life. I hate being FAT . I hate the way I look in my clothes. I hate the way i feel health wise. So why cant I succeed ????

    emoticon One thing I have learned and learning is how you talk to yourself is important. You need to talk to yourself like you are giving a friend or love one a pep talk. You need wright your WHY down and post it everywhere, bathroom, car, your phone, everywhere. Each day write down something positive about yourself or the day. I hope you are doing better since this blog.

    I just read your post on the forum.
    I hear you with regard to those thoughts and feelings regarding feeling unable to handle food.
    Recently I found 'Bright Line Eating' by Susan Peirce Thompson. She gives very interesting answers to those questions.

    I completely understand - as I imagine most on this site do also. It is aggravating and frustrating. I have joined a 10 week challenge at my boot camp. I am now PAYING EXTRA weekly to be a part of this. Hopefully the financial cost will boost my incentive somewhat? Best wishes to you!

    I know exactly how you feel. I said these exact same things yesterday. I also said if I had someone to meet me at the gym, I would be more motivated to go. Well hum maybe I need to be motivated to go for myself. Not worry about what others think or feel about me.

    I had a doctor tell me once that I was not fat I maybe overweight but I am not fat. Saying that is not a good thing for you. You wouldn't tell your best friend they are fat why do you say that to yourself? He has a point something I need to remember going forward.

    We can do this my dear and I will be here cheering you on along the way!

    Fast foods and sodas are designed to be addictive, so it's not too different from a smoker relapsing. I am the same way and have been on and off the wagon with my eating throughout my adult life.

    Do you feel like maybe you make too many changes to your diet/exercise too quickly? I find if I try to overhaul everything at once, I'm more prone to return to my old habits.

    Robert Lustig talks about fructose-sweetend foods and their addictive nature in his lectures and books. You can look him up on Youtube or I can make some recommendations if you want to check him out. My eating is still not perfect, but his infomation has helped get me away from the processed and frustose-sweetened foods.

    One Day At a Time and sometimes One Hour or Minute at a time is the motto I keep in front of me.

    Recognize that you are worthy of this and work towards achieving it. You can make it happen and you always have your Facebook Friends to help and encourage you. We have been or are in the same place you are now.

    Remember -- Positive thoughts from this day forward. emoticon emoticon

    Be honest with yourself. Why do you want to lose weight? Is it for yourself for for others? If it's for others, it will never happen. YOU need to be ready for it...YOU need to want it so bad you will do anything to be successful. If YOU are not ready yet, it won't happen. YOU need to feel you are worth it to make it happen. YOU need to value yourself more than anyone else.

    You can't do this journey for anyone other than yourself.

    I wish I had the answer. I am the same way.

    I think you need to figure out why you are going to fast food places and are drinking soda. What is holding you back? You need to be brutally honest with yourself. Is this something you really truly want to commit to for the REST OF YOUR LIFE? Weight loss success is 100% mental attitude and 80% food and 20% exercise.. Instead of hate, you need to embrace who you are now and want to truly make a change because you are worth it..Don't beat yourself. You CAN do this. If you truly feel overwhelmed, perhaps talk to a dietician/nutritionist, but the bottom line is you need to truly commit to this. racking and being conscious of what you eat will help and the pounds will come off.
