:mad: Im tired of...

- Not seeing physical results on my body :snail:, i dont care what i weigh, as long as i feel i look good and feel good.
- Looking so wide front on, but thin side on
- Of my huge thighs, and wide knees
- eating salads and fruit
- ab exercises that hurt and make me feel nautious
- Interval training :running:
- lunges :exercise:
- Bio-metric jumps
- taking a break during exercise when i want to, not need to
- Making my husband pancakes with maple syrup then eating a salad
- Feeling guilty when i eat something i actually want to eat
- Feeling down and like this most days, but good others.


feel free to add on.. i just wanted to whine; i ate 1/2 pack of microwave popcorn last night - wasn't as good as i remember, but i ate it anyway, perhaps the popcorn is why im in this mood

It gets easier. I have been going at this since Feb 2nd. I still get sick of watching my husband eat all the crap he does and drink soda like I use too. Then watching a tv show and wanting to eat huge muffin or something.

I started making what I want to eat and he can cook for himself if he wants something different. I love him very much and hope that he will support me, he can choose what he wants to put in his body but I know what I need to put in mine.

I also get bored with my work outs and need to change things up once in a while. It helps with taking those breaks you want but don't need. Plus the more versitle you get the easier things like lunges and ab exercises get. I still get a knot in my stomach with some ab exercises. I learned to welcome it cause I know it equals change.

I have lost 30 pounds and I can say I see the changes but I am still not happy with my body. Someday....right?!

I am probably not much help. I will give you my phase I love saying when I get down.

Nothing in life worth having comes easy.

I'm tired of . . .

- My other friends reaching their goals before me, because I have so much more to lose
- Not feeling pretty. I have not felt pretty since 2006.
- Not fitting into my nice, stylish clothes
- Not having a womanly shape
- My stomach sagging and being lumpy
- Being "the fat friend"
- Not being able to buy clothes at my fave store
- Feeling like I'm trapped in an alien body and not my own
- Staying away from pastas and breads most of the time
- Looking like I'm six months pregnant. MY CHILD IS TWO!
- Pants sagging in the butt and squeezing my waist
- Back fat bubbling over my bra strap
- Caring so damn much about what people think of me when I'm walking
- That first five minutes on the treadmill... ugh...
- My fat, round face which NO hair style or colour can disguise

OK girls, now you just stop that! Take a look at your lists...have you noticed anything? You are all so hostile towards yourselves. Let me remind you of something...you are all working VERY hard to change your physical appearances...VERY hard. This is not easy to do. So you just be nice to your saggy butts and lumpy tummies because they're not going to be with you too much longer!

I get tired of it too. Matter of fact last night I had a melt down when I baked myself a potato and a piece of chicken in the toaster oven and then made fried chicken and mashed potatoes and gravy for my family because my husband BEGGED me to...then just minutes before it was ready he left to go ride with a guy who was disking our back field...WITHOUT TELLING ME HE'D BE GONE for 2 hours. I thought he was just going out to talk to him, but he jumped in the cab with a box of beer and away they went. I was livid when he finally came in and told him I will NEVER fry chicken again. Not only is it unhealthy, it's a huge mess, tons of dishes, pots and pans, and I really suffer watching the family eat it. Wah

You're a better wife then I am. Cause' there is no way on earth I'd be frying any chickens or mashing any potatoes with gravy for any one in my home. NO WAY!!! If they want to eat like "that", let them do so in a restaurant, but not on my time and in my home. No sireee.

Every now and then I DO get tired of it. But not all that often and it doesn't last very long. I have so many constant reminders of why all this "work" is worth it. I'll pass a mirror and actually enjoy what I see, I'll zip around all day long loaded with energy, I'll catch a glance of my vein-y hands and on and on.

Truth be told, it was waaaaay more tiring being overweight. Way more.

this was just intended as a venting post Peep but thanks; sometimes you have to scream about the things you hate or talk, and my husband thinks im fine as i am, so talking to him doesnt help. After my rant and a good salad later, i felt better :)

I get moody when im hungry, and i'd realised, i hadn't eaten in 4 hours, considering i try to stick to every 3 hours.

I agree Jinksie...I'm sooooo tired of going out to eat with my fiancee (who has an awersome metabolism) can eat a whole cow in front of me and I can look at a piece of a french fry and gain weight, that burns me up!!

lol thats SO my expression; i look at food and gain weight ... lol

but i know my husband may be fussy and eat what he eats, but he eats in tiny portions and maybe once or twice a day. I cant eat once a day; i'd die. And i know generally when i like something, i'll eat it til i may just explode.

Thats how he and i differ.

I am just tired of way I look and feel that's why I have made the lifestyle change. No more yo-yo dieting, no more gorging on unhealthy foods. I hope one day I can say that I love the way I look and feel that's the best motivator for me.

OT: Squeak, what kind of dog is that in your avatar? He/she looks like my dog. Lucy is a beagle mix (of what we don't know because she's a rescue), but we say that she is a Giant Beagle. She weights about 40 lbs and is knee-high. But her coloring is so like your dog's. Lucy has more black on her face, but lots of brown too, and I think her ears are longer.

I'm still a work in progress...

Some days I'm not the brightest bulb in the box...lol. I'm learning though. ;)

I get tired of cooking. Some days, I dread going home after work and cooking. I do it, without giving any consideration to breaking my plan, but some days I don't want to have to take the time, dirty all the dishes, clean up...I just want someone else to take care of it. Unfortunately, I live by myself and there is not significant other in the picture, so if I don't good, then I don't eat, so I suck it up and do it....but some times, I just need to complain about it. Doesn't change anything nor would I go back to my old ways of getting fast food, but it does feel good to let it out.

I am tired of alot of things. But mostly I am tired of being way overweight.Of putting clothes on in the morning wondering if they will fit. Going in a restaurant wondering if I'll fit in the booth. So for these reasons I will not give up.

Exactly what I was going to say, Tracy!

I'm tired of being overweight.
I'm tired of not being able to run all the way round my 6km block.
I'm tired of having to suck my stomach in to do my jeans up.
I'm tired of having to hold my breath when I do my shoelaces up.
I'm tired of having to plan to take all the laundry downstairs at once so I don't have to climb up the stairs more than once.
I'm tired of feeling deflated when I have to carry the emergency pager at work, because I know I'll have to run up and down the stairs when it goes off.
I'm tired of planning where I'm going to park to minimise the amount of walking I'll have to do to get round the shops.

But now that I'm starting to shift some weight, I'm loving:
Having more energy to run round with my kids (just a shame they're teenagers now and don't want mum running round like a lunatic!)
A better sex life - I'm less self-conscious about my body, and I have more energy.
Waking up in the morning and jumping out of bed.
Being able to run continuously for 5 of my 6km block.
Clothes! I need to win the lottery, then I can buy all the funky new clothes I like.

Cheers!

I hear ya. Sometimes I get tired, too. I wonder sometimes if all this effort is worth it.

But, ya know... I get tired of other things in life, not just dieting. On Mondays I am usually tired of working! Sometimes I get tired of paying bills, cleaning the house or grocery shopping. But ya know what? All of those things pay off in the end. I get a nice paycheck, I own a home! I get to decide what to have for dinner and eat wonderful summer produce. And so like dieting, when I get tired of logging my calories, of putting in the extra effort to go exercise, of choosing the healthiest (but maybe not the yummiest) thing on the menu.... I remind myself that it, too, pays off in the end.
