Down in the dumps

I’ve been feeling down in the dumps recently and I know exactly why. I know that I sound like a broken record. I go on and on about my weight issues and I swear to change, but alas, it doesn’t happen. I keep asking myself how I kept myself so dedicated for the year and a half that I lost all my weight. Why can’t I go back to being motivated like that again?! I remember only losing 1.9lbs in one week and was disappointed because it was such a small amount. I would LOVE to lose that much now. Ugh. Life sucks. Food sucks. Exercise sucks. RAWR.

I haven’t made a home cooked meal since last Saturday. We have eaten out every day this week. Some days I even ate out for lunch and dinner. Sure, a couple of the meals included salads and pitas, but most included burgers, fries and ice cream. It’s not a good mix. I have gone to bed each night feeling so gross. I always tell myself that I will get up in the morning and exercise. But all I can think about when I wake up is food like pancakes, hashbrowns, bacon and grease. Then I think, hey, if I wait a little while to eat then it will be past 11am and I can go get McDonald’s cheeseburger and fries.

Somebody needs to save me from myself.

Maybe I really do need to go back to Weight Watchers meetings. That way I will have to weigh in with somebody besides myself each week. I would be embarrassed if the scale just went up and up each week. I might actually be good and stay some-what on plan. It really might be a good idea. I need to do something.

Wish me luck. I need it.

    Hang in there girl! I know EXACTLY what you are going through. I haven’t been to a meeting in a REALLY long time, and I’m probably not going to be able to go to one until after I graduate. Just try to stick with it. Even if you’re eating bad, count the points.

    Let’s start a private weight watchers group or something! I need help as well, my motivation has been on vacation for months now :sick:

    Good luck! I just ramped up my weight loss journey again – I’ve been to the gym three times this week and plan on going again tonight to meet my mini goal of going four times this week. I’ve been eating, well, not “good” but “good enough”, I think.

    I hate the feeling you are describing about eating junk food all day and going to bed with a sour feeling stomach and shame. It’s not a good mix.

    Good luck getting back to where you need to be!

    Luck luck luck <3

    It can be SO HARD to stay motivated and upbeat when it doesn't seem to make a difference; I know that feeling.

    You CAN do this, and don't worry about the path you take to get there — no matter how many twists and turns, you'll still reach your destination 🙂

    I wish you the best of luck! I know how hard weight loss can be, and how much “will power” sucks. I still have plenty of weight to lose from my second child, and he’s almost 18 months old. I’ve heard from lots of people that WW helps them stay on track and offers accountability.
