I’m coming here because I know you will make me feel better. I’m trying all my self talk too.
I was feeling pretty good about my efforts.
A. I have been successful in sticking to a walking routine for four weeks, and I have a partner who will continue to walk with me and help me push my limits. I’m feeling stronger and happy about how I’m trying to change.
B. I haven’t been able to stick to a diet, but I am trying to make better choices and trying to wean myself off of the foods I crave and turn to for comfort (one of the reasons I’m writing now instead of eating).
C. I was gradually losing, was up to sixteen pounds gone. I was (am) really looking forward to continuing the trend of losing.
However, over one weekend I shot up 7.8 pounds!!!!!! This morning I was ready to throw my hands up, throw in the towel and agree with the negative side of me that says “It is so not worth the effort, you will just gain it all back anyway”.
Okay, I’m PMS-ing, I had chinese food this weekend, I haven’t been drinking water like I should.
Whew! I’m starting to feel better. I am going to take on the challenge of drinking more water. I’m going to keep walking. I’m going to make progressively better choices with my food intake. I am going to work my butt off (hopefully) to make biggest loser this week.
Thanks for letting me vent. You all are the greatest!
