Struggles

Thursday, January 25, 2018

I promised myself that I would be real here. No sugar coating, putting a positive spin on things, or making excuses. So here goes. I have struggled so much lately. I started the month strong, but am still four pounds away from my monthly goal. Stress, life and a bit of depression has been getting to me the past week. I have found myself making up excuses not to get up and exercise. I eat well during the day, but come home and eat too much or the wrong foods of the evening. I am spending a lot of time in my room and really just want to be alone. I have been putting off my homework and studying. I don't even want to go to work. When I am at work, I sit with my door closed and try to avoid people. It just isn't healthy.

I keep telling myself to pull it together. Stick to my plan. Work harder. Just get it together. Do you know how hard it is to pull yourself out of a funk? I am struggling. I know I can do this. I can do all of it. I just have to get my head back in the game.

    * Yup, going on a decade now. This weight loss thing is not for wimps

    * Totes!

    Thanks for being real. There is a lot of pressure in the weight loss world to always "put the positive spin" on things.

    It takes awhile to change lifelong eating habits. Just continue trying to make the right choices and you'll do fine.
