Time To Face Reality

I have to face reality. I’ve gained 10lbs. Since I reached Lifetime membership at Weight Watchers, I have not taken the program seriously. I’ve become overconfident and convinced that I can keep my weight off by eating whatever I want and going to the gym occasionally. It’s just not a reality. I need help. I need the help of the WW program, I need the support of all the WW members and I need to realize, again, that this is a lifestyle change. It is forever. If want to stay at this healthy weight for the rest of my life, I need to be fully committed.

I feel like I’ve failed. It’s really horrible. I lay in bed at night stressing about everything I have consumed in the day. I always say to myself I am going to start over tomorrow and get back on track. But it just ends up being the same old routine. Repeat, repeat.

I finally went for my May weigh in at WW on Tuesday. The news wasn’t good. I knew it wasn’t going to be. As I said above, I have gained 10lbs since March 1. HOW could I do this??!! It’s so stupid and ridiculous. It really is like a slap in the face. So Wednesday morning, I got right back on track and I am tracking my every bite in my points journal. Journaling alone is essential, no matter how much I hate it. It needs to be a priority. I need to make sure I set myself accountable for what I put in my mouth. There is a saying that I love: “What you eat in private, you wear in public.” I truly believe this. I can feel it in my clothes. Some are tight and uncomfortable and I have even put some away because they don’t fit anymore period.

Anyway, here I am complaining and whining when I know who is to blame. ME. No one else is responsible for what I’ve done with myself.

So here I am committing myself to getting right back on track. I will keep you updated on my progress. I am even thinking about setting up a new blog for my weight loss. Wish me the best?! Please? I need all the help I can get! :oops:

    Ooh, sorry about your gain! I haven’t gained anything, but I have reached a weight plateau at 152lbs and I am having a lot of trouble getting past it. I really want to be 150 by the end of the month but I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to pull it off.

    We have to keep working, though, to get past our plateaus and to keep our weight off. Sometimes I catch myself thinking “when I reach my goal weight I can’t wait to eat _____.” But I know that’s a terrible way to think, because losing weight isn’t just a diet- it is a total lifestyle change and something that people like you and I need to stick with.

    We can’t just eat whatever we want and we can’t go without exercising or we will get back to our beginning weight in no time! It’s an unfortunate fact, but I’m glad we are both smart women we know this. Now we just need the willpower. ;)

    I’m so glad you have been re-motivated to keep a healthy and active lifestyle! Best of luck getting back down to your goal weight. ;)

    You are so not alone in this! I’m in a similar situation as you. Since my wedding I have basically gone back to my start weight, and I feel terrible. I recently got a FitBit tracker, so I’m getting motivated to get back into the swing of things again. Don’t stress. I know you’re capable of getting back where you need to be. :)

    the worst thing you can do it beat yourself up about things you ate. I mean, really, you can’t take it back :P And really, ten pounds isn’t terrible. I generally fluctuate 10 pounds in a year. I gain and lose gain and lose. It’s absolutely impossible to maintain the same exact weight.
    The best thing you can do is what you’re doing now and getting back on track.

    You have worked so hard for so long to get to your goal weight. Even though the 10 pounds seems like a lot, it is not something you should beat yourself up for. You’re awesome and will lose that weight if you want to!

    You can do it! I know you can, you’ve already done it! :)
