Feel like giving up

Friday, November 11, 2016

I've been at this since August 17th. I adopted somewhat better eating habits, somewhat better water intake, significantly more exercise. I haven't lost anything. My husband on the other hand brings junk food home weekly after his workouts, takes caffeine pills and has lost 15 lbs! I want to be happy for him but I'm pissed because he basically sabotaged my efforts with his penchant for candy, pizza and chips. I suppose I should have just abstained but I have such low will power. I can only hold out for so long. I hate that he lost weight by basically just adding pills to.his lifestyle. I won't use caffeine to lose weight because my heart rate soars. It's not good for anyone long term. I have such a long road ahead if I'm going to do this solely by diet and exercise. It's hard to stay motivated when you try and nothing changes. 😩

    I found out this is a process. You have made some great changes. Just don't give up. Make small changes and keep moving forward. You got this.

    It's not easy. If it were, we would not be on here trying to take the pounds off, they would simply melt away. Men. Yes, love and hate them. They can eat everything, stop drinking beer for a week and drop 20. It's just the way they are made up.

    We store fat; apparently, from reading articles, we are made to store fat and it takes more strategically exercising to actually get rid of said fat. Suggested that we exercise for 10 minutes at a high rate and then reduce to a slow rate and then back up, otherwise we burn muscle first and then fat....all I know is we have to work harder and stick with it.

    That means keeping in the calorie limits; that means taking it off slowly; that means eating those great things, but fitting them into our diet plan, in that you can work out for an hour to eat some pizza. You may still only lose .5 lbs that month, but you will stick with the plan and eventually take the weight off.

    Don't give up. Just accept the difference between them and us!

    Look back over your previous blogs and focus on the positive changes you have made. The scale only indicates a number, not how healthy you are becoming. Take measurements instead of relying on the numbers that fluctuate on a daily basis and really just mess with your head. Perhaps have a chat with hubby and get him on board with your new healthy lifestyle rather than sabotaging your efforts. Best of luck but DO NOT GIVE UP!!

    Do it the safe and sensible way. Pills are not the way to go. You can do this. One step at a time. I know it's rough and frustrating. Focus on yourself. Make one small change tomorrow. Stay with that until it's habit. Then change something else.
