The sad truth is....

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Yes, the sad truth is I am a person with a mental illness that is chronic. I know some of you will think, what does this have to do with weight loss or fitness? Everything! When I am faced with something like a relapse, I am the same old person who reaches for food and doesn't exercise! I isolate....although I am pretty good at getting out lately....I am not very talkative nor do I share with those close to me. Sad truth is....I feel a bit hopeless and wonder to myself...when does it stop? Can I get off this roll a coaster?

I am encouraged by my latest blood tests results, so all is not bad. I am doing very well on the pre-diabetes. As a matter of fact...the doctor said I don't have to worry about it, as long as I continue to eat well and exercise. I still eat whatever I want, I just watch my portion size and everything in moderation!! I have even started going out to eat again. Last night it was an Asian restaurant with sushi. It was very tasty and I did weigh a little more this morning, it was definitely worth it. I am trying to see how I do, especially with the holidays coming up.

Let's face it, I like food!! I will never give up my favorite foods. I will continue to eat them in moderation and not as often as before SP. I have the tools to make it through the holidays and I am going to keep trying to eat healthy and exercise. I needed to blog today and get all these thoughts off my brain.

Have a good day and keep sparking! Even on days that are tough, when I am on SP, I feel better about myself. I will conquer this relapse! I know I will!!

    You have a really great self-awareness if nothing else. I think that your plan is excellent, so try not to get down.
    Like riding a bike, sometimes we crash, but it's easier to get back up when we're wearing our knee and elbow pads. Good luck this week focusing on your goal and getting back up.
    I'm glad you're reaching out too. :)

    hang in there - hopefully you are or will get the support you need to address your situation.
    please don't think that the sushi necessarily caused you to weigh more this morning - weight naturally varies for all of us regardless of what we eat or drink or don't eat or drink..
    good news about not being pre-diabetic! that is a great accomplishment...

    I go through some of the same issues. I think acknowledging and making a plan to deal is the best way to proceed. I like what you're thinking. Keep working at it!

    PS LOVE sushi. Not too fattening, depending on what you got.
