Felling stuck

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Have you ever had a time or moment in your life where you felt stuck?? I feel stuck; I just seem to be in a place physically and emotionally stuck with my current weight/health situation. What makes it more difficult is my own self-loathing and anger for being here, for getting here and wallowing in it. I just hear the recordings in my head and I know I am probably harder on myself than anyone else could be. What seems so amazing to me is the millions of people everyday doing something in their situations and rising above them. So what is my problem, why can’t I do it, what is stopping me, what is getting in my way? That is the pathetic part and the feelings of what is wrong with me? I feel once I have those answers then I can do something, move forward and not backward and continue on, but right now I am in the stuck.

    Just 10 LBS" by Brad Lamm - Read it. I have been stuck gaining and losing the same 5 pounds for 2 years now. I would put forth effort and not see results so I'd slide back into my old ways. I found this book at the library. I just finished the book and started this week on my first 30 days. I'm making a change and tweaking some old formulas that worked before. On day 1 I walked 3 miles in 45 minutes, first time in two years. Today is day 4, I "feel" better already. I've done something all 4 days to change me, healthy changes. I'm giving the book to my sister tomorrow to read. Revamp your song playlist to upbeat tones that you like, try something new...find an empowering theme song. This week mine is "Titanium" by David Guetta ft Sia. I sing this song to my fat and to the part of me that says "I can't" because she's a liar. I can! and so can you. Good luck my friend!

    I was stuck for a number of years and avoided dealing with my weight. It is hard to get on track and moving.

    Try enrolling in an exercise class and start tracking your food and exercise.

    Read the motivational articles here. They help.

    You DO need some answers. Can you visit a counselor for a session or two? emoticon

    Keep us posted.... there are a lot of us that are wondering WHY.

    ASAP get rid of the self-loathing and anger. Doesn't do us a bit of good.

    In my prayers.

    I know how you are feeling. I am moving out of that right now, I was stuck in it for awhile! It is not easy but day by day I am moving up it has been a daily choice some a lot harder than others.
    I started by finding 3 good things day to write in my gratitude journal, then 5 then 10 things, it was a good place to start.
    Start to focus on the positive and don't give the negative talk legs to stand on!! as corny as it may sound it did help me.
    Find someone you can talk to a friend a Doctor or someone.
    You are in my thoughts and prayers!
    Hugs, GG

    Perhaps you should talk to your family doctor. You may be suffering from clinical depression. He could possibly give you a mood stabilizer which would give you more energy and allow you to refocus on your goals. Good luck.
