What happened?

Friday, September 12, 2014

I am sitting here in tears and with frustration at my bad habits lately. I have no excuse; I have the tools......I have the knowledge......I just don't have the will power. What the heck happened?

I lost 33 pounds 1.5 years ago and I have gained 18 of it back. I am so disgusted with myself. I don't like the way I feel (menopause isn't helping much with that) and I certainly don't like the way I look. My clothes fit too tight, I feel like a butterball. I know what I need to do and I can't understand why I can't commit or stick to the program.

I need a new SPARK! I need to be SPARKED! I need help! I need something that will keep me motivated and on the "journey" again where I feel great and look great, have confident and feel beautiful.

I know I'm venting, just needed to, frankly. Thanks for listening, my Spark Friends!

    Thanks ladies.....I really appreciate your kind and wise words and especially your support.

    I'm still really struggling with weight loss. I'm trying to stay positive. I know some of it is my fault, some of it is due to age, and some the HRT I'm taking for menopause. I'm going to ramp up my exercise this week so hopefully that will help.

    I've been in the same boat for a while now. Losing the first time around seemed rather easy... this time is totally different though. I'm having a lot of trouble with being consistent and staying motivated this time around.

    I don't have any advice, but wanted you to know you're not alone. emoticon

    Stop beating yourself up. We're human, not perfect. Let go of your past failures and shift your focus to the things you love about yourself and your body. You don't even have to be specific, just pick something easy, like your hair, or the way your body has carried you throughout your life. Focus on the positive and let go of the negative. Start appreciating your body exactly the way it is. Think of how you want to FEEL at your ideal weight. Really FEEL those things. Most importantly, LOVE YOURSELF! You can reach all of your goals if you just love yourself first. :)

    I can relate to your situation because I am lacking will power right now also. A few months ago, I tried the Dr Oz two-week rapid loss plan and lost seven pounds in two weeks. The plan can be accessed on his web site. I lost another ten pounds in the following six weeks but I have gotten away from the plan and gained seven pounds since March. I need to get back to the plan.
