I've been coasting, coasting, coasting for too long. Just sort of slowly going back to the bad eating, not exercising, not caring. It took me a sleepless night last night of tossing and turning and feeling utterly out of control at 2 am to get my focus back. So here i am, refocussed on what i have to do. I'm sick and tired of feeling crappy about myself.

Some good news, i gritted my teeth and stepped on the scales, bracing myself for the gain and discovered that i am 241. The same as this time last month, and the month before that. No progress is tough, but bearable, much better than back to square one, which ive done to myself time and time again in the past.

Today i'm getting back on the treadmill, and if i say it here it means i HAVE TO right? :D

How is everyone doing? Sometimes the battle in our own mind is the hardest part, does anyone else feel like that at times?

I second that...the internal battle is tough! I've been back on track since last Wednesday and feeling pretty good about most of my choices. The warm weather and longer days have been a big help!

Stick with it!!!

UNGH. Like I just said in the other thread--the "no progress" zone--I've lived there. But it is so, so, so much better than gaining weight (this coming from someone who EASILY--and I mean EASILY--could gain 25-30 pounds in a month if left to my own devices).

Ditto, I could EASILY gain 25-30 lbs in one month if I didn't step on the scale every morning and log what I eat.

It is scary, but it is also a good reminder of all of the things we are doing right when we maintain or only gain a tiny bit.

I got real this week and lost 2 lbs. So proud of myself :) sometimes it takes hitting mental rock bottom to get that weightloss mojo back.

Good job! Two pounds per week is perfect. You've got it, now just keep it going.

Sadly I can't seem to keep repeating 2lbs a week. This week I stayed exactly the same weight. It's pretty frustating but as long as I keep doing my best, and plugging away at it, and repeating the positive things and trying to eliminate the negative things I do, I will get there eventually. I'm 18lbs lighter than I was at the start of the year, and I'm pretty darn happy about that.

Don't be frustrated! Sometimes that's the way it works (high weight loss weeks, followed by low ones). If you're exercising and staying on your eating plan, you're doing fine!

Have faith - it's a process.
