Guys I am struggling! I just want to cry. I feel like I am NEVER going to get out of the 200s. I started another post about this, but today I am feeling REALLY discouraged and wondering why I don't just give up...I won't, but I feel that way. I have been working so hard!! And NOTHING, for about a month now. I know I wasn't on plan that whole month, but to lose nothing when I still have so far to go is very discouraging!
I am going to get my weekly frozen yogurt today, but seriously, I just want to cry....

I'm sorry to hear that. I've had months like that. They've always been followed by a big loss. And there's something about that 200 line! No one reaches it without a struggle. I think there's some sort of initiation pause we all must pass there. You just have to stay the course. The scale will move again, but it is certainly is discouraging.

I am not part of the 100 lb group. Ok if I join? I leave for hawaii in 31 days including today. I have actually been on plan a few days already in a row. But a 30 day challenge is something I am excited to prove to myself I can do.

Yesterday went pretty well! I didn't have time to bake a cake for my boyfriend's birthday, I had 3 papers to write and I had to drive into Brooklyn for class right after dinner. I saved calories throughout the day because I knew we were going to be buying a small cake, and I wound up still being slightly under my caloric limit! I had one slice of cake, and when my boyfriend sliced some reduced fat cheddar and ham to put on crackers at 11:30pm I kindly declined Yay for planning - I'll definitely consider this an on plan day!

Since I have PCOS, my periods are very irregular. I got it Sunday after exercising, but the time before that was 2 to 3 months prior. The scale is WOOOOSH-ing like crazy! Maybe all that extra water weight? I'm not complaining!

I have a long day at school today, 3pm - 9:30pm so I have to bring my dinner and snacks along with me since my school has no healthy options (except for a "salad" bar that's 8 dollars a pound.. NTY!)

-----

Pink, I know it's a struggle.. I'm certainly in it with you because my body acts the same way..stupid PCOS! It's taken me months to get past 286 on the scale, so just be patient and focus on how healthy you're becoming rather than the numbers on the scale.

Easier said than done, I know.. I'm here if you need to rant

-Stephy

PS- There was half of a homemade ice cream cake left and I told him to take it to work with him today..old me would have never said that! We can do this Chickies!

So far, so good.

Pinkie - Why so glum? Something that helps me is planning out my meals and following the plan exactly. If you get too hungry on your meals try to eat more apples, whole grain pasta, and anything with fiber in it. It will make you feel a lot more full. Hope that helps!

Creech - You sound like such a busy girl! What are you studying?

Today, I decided to move my exercise routine to Saturday because I am working a twelve hour shift! Erggg--well at least I get a dancing veggie on my program today! LOL.

I don't know your routines but I'll share you my experience and see if you can relate. I stayed around 200-205 for the whole summer this year and I was on plan with my food intake... aside from those BBQ parties where I had more than enough BBQ sauce. Anyway, I realized that I wasn't working out hard enough so I was just maintaining my weight instead of losing. My former routine was alternating between strength training and jogging 2-3 miles each day which was a breeze but the strength training I did was just from magazines that I read. I stopped my jogging and my so-called strength training and replaced it with fitness videos (Insanity by Shaun T) and the pounds are just melting off now. I'm on day 9 and I've lost 5.4lbs, an inch off my waist, my appetite has decreased, my water intake has greatly increased and I've noticed that my body is visibly stronger, muscles... on me.. who would've thought? For me, setting down a good solid diet plan and then pushing myself out of my comfort zone for at least 5 days, has given me more confidence that I can do it, not to mention how great it's making me feel. I'm so serious, it's like a drug and it's giving me a great high So give it a try and push harder.

I was feeling like this just last week and have several times during my journey. It's like I can't get out of the 200's (did once got to 197) and back up to the 200's. I know regardless of what anyone says you're still going to feel what you feel but please believe me when I say I understand and you are going to HAVE to take it one minute at a time.

Seriously you are going to have to dig waaaay deep inside and focus. To be honest I get scared b/c I get all gung ho (like now with my eating and exercise) then BAM!!! I'm back in a funk struggling to get out but this time I am just focusing on one minute at a time if I look to tomorrow I get overwhlemed, if I think about how much more weight I have to lose I get frustrated, when I think of what food I can't eat right now b/c it will cause me to binge I get depressed so you know what? I don't! I've decided to stop doing that to myself b/c it is self sabotage.

We are all here fighting this battle with you and we all are going to succeed in achieving our goals together regardless of how long it takes. It doesn't matter how many times we start over the point is to get up and try again and not give up.

You can do this girl!! I believe in you!

Looks like people are doing pretty well, despite the struggles. At least we're making progress!

Pink, I'm right there with you, although you're closer than I am. It IS a struggle but it will happen. Just keep moving forward, keep extra awesome track for a while and you'll break through.

I'm still on-plan, myself. I'm not so good about getting here to post daily. I'm so tired of feeling like my life is in a constant state of motion

Pinkie-

I know exactly how you feel. It took me about 2 years to get from 168 to 158, then, I gained it all back and after my honeymoon I weighed 164. Over the past few months, my weight hasn't budged from 160 at all, and it is devastating, especially all the work that gets put into weight loss! (working out, meal plans, eating right, avoiding temptation).

I still don't even know if I am going to lose weight.

I keep trying to make a change in my life, and it's hard. It's hard to say, "Are you serious, this is how I am going to eat the rest of my life?" It's a downer. All those yummy fried foods and sugary goodness will not be indulged in as massively as I have done before. It's over. The rarity of fried foods and sweet sugar is a once in a while thing. My new favorite sugar is in apples and fried foods aren't something I can touch.

But in trading in all that yummy goodness and massive indulgence, I guess there is something that its being trading for--a great body and intense feeling of confidence.

I get tired not thinking that I am not the best me I can be.

I hope that helps with some strength pinkie, because I know how it feels to not have the scale budge, it's horrible.

I saw something on one of the picture goals that a lady wrote after losing 120 pounds: Failure is not a person, it's an event.

I liked how she had said that.

Over and out, and see all u girls and guys tomorrow!
