Sorry about the struggles. You are right you have to keep your eye on that prize. You have already come so far. You wouldn't want go back. I know I was recently getting discouraged and my first thought is to eat. It is a little foolish, isn't it? My weight loss might not be going the way I want it to and my solution is to eat?
I am currently trying to see that my old ways only mean gaining weight. And I also need to be able to forgive myself when I'm not perfect. No one is. Even skinny people eat things that aren't on our program - the trick is not to do it all the time.
I would recommend that you go to the center. You deserve better. I've learned to really love my consultant. I feel like she really is pulling for me. That extra support helps with my motivation.
Well I weighed in on Sunday and I know if was a lie! I got on the scale in the morning and it seemed I was down 1/2 lb. Not great, but at least a loss. I had a later appointment, so I was able to go on one of my longer walks - 6 miles. When I came back home I was down another 2 lbs. I didn't believe it. I don't even sweat very much. When I weighed-in the scale showed 2.6 lbs. I told my consultant what had happened, but she said that the scale doesn't lie. Well, it does cause I'm back up again. Oh, well. I have two weeks to do something about it since I'm doing an 8K walk next weekend. Wish me luck.
SUNSHINE, where are you?
