Confession :( Weight Gain

Saturday, March 30, 2013

OK, confession time.... BREATHE.... :/ :( :'(

I am dreading going out tomorrow. I have gained back 20lbs [I had lost 67lb and was starting to really feel good and now I am feeling crappy bc I gained 20 back. I've been off and on eating good not eating good since the Holidays... I know its just a number [a big old bite me in the butt HUGE number lol] but I feel so depressed. My skin is having issues with eczema so I thought i would try eating differently to see if that had anything to do with it- and i went way off. [I normally eat extremely Low Carb, like i was still eating Induction style -and so going completely off -and a little crazy- I gained REALLY QUICKLY-] resulting in 20 extra pounds and skin still not clear. I know God will heal me in time. So I am leaning on Jesus. I am getting back on track but just wanted to let everyone know what I am going through right now- and that my numbers aren't where they were but I am not giving up... I've still lost the 47lbs but I want to lose the rest and get to my goal. Anyway, HAPPY EASTER! ... Thanks for listening.

    Ditto what everyone has said! You CAN do this. It is a conscious decision that right now you're going to make good choices. That's all we can do... well, that's the only productive thing we can do emoticon

    Today emoticon and then again tomorrow, Today emoticon

    I have to keep telling myself that all the time. I was down almost 70 pounds but due to 3 hospital stays and then a nursing home I gained it all back plus 30 extra due to swelling and meds. I got rid of most of the water gain and back down a few more pounds from where I originally started. I can't focus on that but just Today I can do it!!!

    I saw your blog and HAD to comment because you sound just like me!! I've lost 67# too with SP and before and since the holidays, have put on around 12# and it's so frustrating and so sickening and I don't feel that well about it either! I have to be on Prednisone for my Rheumatoid Arthritis to even walk around and since October, have been on biologics, which are much stronger meds for RA and they say can cause weight gain, so this is what makes me sooooo angry and upset, but I also know that I'll have to work harder to get it off again and to even be able to lose with being on these drugs! I just have to keep trying and I know that you will too! We know that we can't eat cookies, candy, rolls and butter and all that other good stuff, but we do know that we can eat it in moderation and that's what I've been working on more. Thanks for being honest and we can do this! We can feel good again with being in smaller clothes! My smaller clothes are getting tight once again and I'm concentrating on how good they felt when they were loose and going down another size! Good luck to you!

    Most of us have been in your shoes or there wouldnt be Sparks! Know that everyone has troubles at some time. With determination you will lose the extra weight. If you are like me, once you really put your mind to it, the pounds will start to come off. Eat what works for your diet and if you have to, seek a doctors help with your skin. You will be feeling better about yourself in no time!
