still headed in wrong direction with weight gain

Monday, July 28, 2008

Keep gaining weight. Keep binge eating. Now sick of food because all I have binged on has soured on my stomach and in my esphohagus. I am very sad about my unstability in my daily eating. I feel lost. I feel I don't know what is next step. I know I want to do one thing. I must plan every single meal and snack. I have a lot of work ahead of me to plan this week's meals. One day at a time. What to eat today for 3 meals? I will search that out. Beside the food, I am unable to exercise due to a recent (last week) knee injury. I see a surgeon on Wednesday to see what the plan with be. I already have a number of discs in back that are a mess and gives me daily and constant pain in my back. I had been exercising from waist up but it cause pain in my back. Being up on my leg makes it worse. I feel a bit hopeless to move forward but move I will.

    I agree with all Michele's recommendations. And try to keep a positive attitude! Sometimes our negative feelings can only make it would. If you try and stay positive and put your situation in perspective you will be fine!

    Sometimes it's just not the right time in our lives to focus 100% on our WL. So maybe now is not the right time? Mayeb you should focus most of your energy on your injuries and getting better as best as you can. Then refocus on your WL after.

    Hang in there!!!

    Sweetie, don't give up! Ok, so you can't exercise right now, ok, so you CAN drink ALOT of water, which will flush the junk out of your system, PLUS it will make you full, and you won't eat. get rid of ALL the junk food in the house and replace with apples, {when you want that crunch} and salt free pretzels, and walnuts, and oranges, and YOGURT, celery sticks, bananas, oatmeal, tuna fish, things like that. So, when you want to eat or start emotionally eating, you are eating healthy foods because you will have NO JUNK FOOD in the house to eat on. This way while you can't exercise, you are eating right. DRINK THAT WATER!!!

    Also, get some free hand held weights and while you are sitting with you knee resting, do 100 arm curls per arm, and hold the weight with both hands and lift over you head, which works the back of the arms. YOU CAN DO THIS, DON'T GIVE UP! So, until you can walk, and exercise again, take this time to work those arms. Then you are doing some type of exercise, and you WILL be drinking your water and eating right, so you won't get off track! I am behind you 100%, you are NOT a quitter! I am going to push you know...so, go get rid of the junk food that is in the house and start making that "I am going to eat right" list and get healthy snack foods to help. Keep a journal of the intake of food you have eaten starting today and that will also help. Spark mail me or leave me a message on my page and let me know how you are doing ok.
