frustrated with myself

Thursday, August 07, 2008

Yes I fell off the wagon and climbed back on and then fell off again. Why can't I stay on? I'm really getting pretty banged up and it's not good for me. I look at my friend's spark pages and they are so motivating to me and I want to look like them. Maybe I don't have the patience. I know I can persevere if I could just stay consistent. I like the way I feel when I eat right ALL DAY. I like the way I feel after I exercise and I LOVE the way I feel when the scale heads south when I climb on. Oh I long for the days when I was fit, trim, and HOT!!. When I wasn't sickened by what I see in the mirror, when I was confident. I need to get a dose of stick-to-it. I need to keep my eye on the prize. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

    hi there, sorry for your frustration. ask yourself why you're falling off the wagon ? is it temptations out of your control (e.g. office doughnuts), is it friends who want to go out to eat all the time ? is it stress ? is it boredom ? is it anxiety ?
    when i want to get back on the wagon, i get into what i call "the zone". all my mental focus is for me to remain on plan - i plan my lunches ahead of time and take them to work with me. i plan my dinners. i don't keep junk in the house, or at least it's out of sight. ask yourself if you're actually hungry before you eat anything. drink a glass of water before meals. stay away from the tv (for me this always spells trouble).

    in the end, we all fall off the wagon. that's normal, and inevitable and actually is not even relevant. what's relevant is that we get back on. if necessary, get mad. sometimes that works (for me).
    just think, tomorrow is truly a New Day. be positive and keep life simple. hope this helps, and i'm sure you know most of this anyway. don't think, just do. lol.
