Feeling bad about staying

Monday, May 21, 2007

This morning I woke up and had high hopes of seeing a loss. I have not weighed myslef in almost a week. Instead I saw an increase. I am leading a challenge team right now and I am doing a good job at posting but not at loosing weight. I work out a lot. I bust my butt. So what is going on. I have not been loosing weight for 6 weeks. When I lose weight the next week it is back. I don't know how to feel or what to think. Yesterday I was able to wear a size 14. So I am in between a 16 and 14. I told myself I would be happy if I got to a size 14 and I did. So why should I go on staying on SP. Why should I look at the scale and things. It is a big let down when you think you bust you butt and see nothing. I am depressed today about it. I still worked out this morning at the Y. I will work out tomorrow as well. I just want something that is not happening right now. I want to be a loser and continue to be one. Maybe I just need some words of encouragement right now. Instead of me always giving it which I am fine with. I just feel I don't have the place any longer to do so.

    I know how you feel. Lately I have been going through the same thing. I also got very discouraged. However, it does seem to happen to alot of us on SP. So it must be totally normal. I keep thinking maybe I need to switch things up a bit. I read in one of my latest fitness magazines, to do strength training BEFORE cardio. I was doing it the other way around. So I am going to try that this week and see if it helps. Also I read to break up your cardio routine into 2 -20 or 30 minute routines versus just going for a straight 40-60 minutes. I too stopped logging my food for awhile now. I have been doing really good and it just got to the point where I thought it might help to just give myself a break from logging everyday. I spent the past 3 days out in my yard gardening. Doing weeding, racking, and sweeping. Just getting the yard all nice and clean. We have an acre here with lots of trees. It takes alot of maintance to keep it up. But it really felt good getting outside and just working in the yard. I found it to be a nice stress reliever. On pay day I am going to get some new plants and also some brick and stone pavers. I am going to create some new flower beds & a walk-way up to our patio. I am soooo proud of you for accomplishing all you have. Size 14 is amazing!!! I just got myself into an 18. You have been a huge inspiration for me girl! Don't you dare give up! I will always be here for you as you have done for me. Getting under 200 is my goal right now. And you have already done it!!! :-) Hang in there sweetie! (((Hugs)))

    Don't you dare give up. You have lost an ENORMOUS amount of weight. Your body is probably slowing down right now. I have been losing/gaining THREE pounds for the last month. It is horrible.
    GIRL! YOU ARE DOWN TO A 14 RIGHT NOW. That is amazing. You can't give up, you and a few others are what keep me going here. Keep on doing what you are doing, you might be surprised next week! Let me know if you need to talk.
    your friend,
