SP Premium



Thursday, July 05, 2012

I started Sparkepeople in January. Along the way I've had a few bad days, even a few bad weeks, but I've been able to push through it though & get myself back on track......until now. I lost nearly 30 lbs., was Sparking almost everyday, being very mindful about what I was eating, exercising regularly & drinking LOTS of water. I feel like I've hit a wall. I haven't been on Sparkpeople for a couple weeks, I've been eating crap & I have barely been exercising. I don't even want to face the scale.....UGH! It's been awful & I don't know where my motivation has gone. I feel so mad at myself for wasting so much time getting back on track. I just feel so crappy, tired & un-motivated! This has been the worst slump I've had since I truly made a conscious effort to lose weight & get healthy & I'm afraid I can't pull myself out of it! :(

    I've totally been there! 30 pounds is no small feat. Think of where you've come from and where you are going. I've found what helps me when I start slipping is to really start diving into all the motivational things I can find on the internet! Start visualizing and watching motivational shows with people fighting to stay fit. Sometimes I read articles on spark, or I even watch a biggest loser episode (minus the drama they are still loosing weight). Another thing I do is start doing some math and figure out if I keep trying where I'll be by my birthday, aniversary, etc. You've done so well! Keep it up! I know you can do it!

    Oh no! 30pds is alot of weight to lose . Start from where you already are and move forward. I had high blood pressure and I really keep it under control with my weight loss and exercise. I can't kick you in the butt , so I wish you good luck. emoticon

    emoticon Begin with small steps again....think of quiting as a no-possibility! I hit bad slumps also but I recognize the fact that I am only human and therefore not perfect! Congrats on your weight loss so far! emoticon
