Spinning my wheels.....

I am very frustrated with myself....I am not eating terribly but I am not eating good and I am not moving as much as I need to be. I read your blogs every day and I am so amazed with how all of you are doing. I don't know what is wrong with me. Why can't I get a couple of good weeks in without going backwards like this.....I am just so frustrated. Hubby has been working a lot of long hours and I find that is when it is the worst....He calls to say he is going to be late and then I or some reason reach for something sweet.

We have this trip to Vegas coming up and I really don't want to be this size when we are there or anymore at all for that matter. I look in my closet and I can't find anything that makes m,e feel good, I want to put something on again and feel pretty....maybe even sexy. I know my happiness should not be linked to a number (on the scale or in a pair of pants) but right now it really seems to be....I felt so good last week losing 2.2 and I should have been able to keep that up. It's not like I eat a really restricted diet or anything, I generally eat what I want and just work it into my points. This worked really well for me when I lost my weight the first time and I don't think it is what the problem is. I seem to be very consciously eating crap with any kind of emotion. This really needs to change...obviously I don't know what I should be doing.....any suggestions?


  1. Girl, I'm right there with ya....lost 5lbs in 2 months...but it's 5 lbs and i am eating better and working out! maybe post a daily menu of what you've been eating and ask for their input...i know I eat waaaay too many starchy/carb foods...

  2. Don't get frustrated chica! I know it's hard, but you just have to keep working at it. They say a habit takes 21 days to form, so you just have to keep going.

  3. I could have written this post. You might just need to re-evaluate your diet. I know sometimes I get into a routine of healthy eating, but then when you look at the whole picture - I'm totally favoring the carbs and not eating many raw fruits and veggies. which usually leads to over eating in the evening.
    Also - set up mini goals... what do you need to loose and then break it up over the time frame. Do you need to loose 5 pounds a month or more? Then you'll know how strick you need to be or pick up the exercise.
    Okay - that was my 2 cents! I love the honesty of your blog.

  4. If you are eating within your daily pts then you should be doing ok. I think its good that you know you eat when certain things trigger it. Like if your husbands going to be late, use that as an excuse to cook something healthy he normally wouldn't like (like whole wheat pasta or something low cal men dont usually like lol). I am really motivated right now by my weekly weigh ins. So remember how you felt when you lost 2.2 and strive to lose that same amount this week, and just keep thinking how happy you'll be when you meet that goal again. And then you can come on here and tell us all about it :)

  5. I've had some motivational issues and the like since the year began so I'm not where I expected to be at this point (I'm about 9 lbs off of where I thought I'd be right now).

    You can only re-focus yourself, work on making today a better day and plan for that each new day and you will get there.
