I am still stuck and I want out of this rut!! I was doing so well when I started last April and then around September I got stuck - only lost about 6 pounds since then.
To be honest the last couple of months I have been almost entirely off the wagon - not counting calories - eating CRAP that I shouldn't - well not shouldn't but eating too much of it. I am now up from 214 to 216.6 and I am pissed. I am lucky it isn't more. I have almost completely stopped exercising too.
The phyical "stuckness" has led to me being mentally stuck and I want out! This last week I was really GOOD until the last two days. I ate between 1300-1600 with these last two days as exceptions. I need to remember what I did in the beginning to control myself. Yesterday would have been fine if I hadn't eaten two ham sandwiches late last night. I knew I shouldn't have, but I did. I "felt" like I was starving, but I think it was probably all in my head. If I had brushed my teeth, turned off the tv and gone to bed I might not be 216.6 this morning.
I still want to lose 56-66 more pounds and I would like at least 40 to be off by June. I know I can do this, but I guess I just need some tough love, encouragment and practical ideas. Help! Tell me what to read, what old threads I should go to or just shake me! Anything.
