For the 900th time! Ok so I did manage to lose about 50 pounds. But I still have about 50 to go! I feel so frustrated. I had originally gotten down to 152, but gained 12 pounds due to frustration and laziness. I know I have to just pull myself out of this rut. It's so hard though.. I feel like I am self defeating. That I will keep taking 2 steps forward and one step back. By the time I get to my goal weight I will be too old to move. So what's the point?

I have decided to just start back up again. I know I will do it this time, I will finish because I am sick of dieting already. Atkins works great for me, I just feel extremely frustrated today. How do you cope when you get in a situation like this? I want to feel good about myself in the meantime, but I feel worse and fatter then I did at 212 pounds. Go figure.. :rolleyes:

Hi Rikku,

First of all congrats on the 47lb loss! That is great!

I know it gets frustrating, but instead of getting upset and wanting to quit realize that you have lost a good amount of weight and how good you have to be feeling!
Is this due because your weight loss has slowed down and you haven't lost, or because you're getting bored with your woe.

Losing weight is a mental thing too. We have to realize that we are changing our way of thinking as well as our way of eating. Once we get that in our mind, we can continue on with this and know that the way we are eating is going to allow us to lose weight.

If you're starting over, just know that you'll start losing! Come here for support, there are some great Gals here who will help, support, motivate and educate you when you need it.

Hang in there okay, you're going to be fine. I know everyone of us has gone through the same thing. We just have to really want it!

If it makes you feel any better, I wish I was at your weight!!! ;)

Take Care, and keep up the good work!
