Struggling.

Sunday, November 11, 2012

I've been eating better. Still working out. No results lately.

Actually I stopped weighing myself for a bit and then weighed in today and I've gained weight. I'm so frustrated and angry.

I need more support IRL but I don't know where to turn.

I just found out my mom who had gastric bypass years ago is also on appetite suppressants. Is this my future?

    WANYONI is right. That's a good idea. Also if you are already using your nutrition and workout tracker, maybe the nutrition report will help highlight what's going on. If your BMR checks out alright on your goals, and everything is set right, I'd hang in there. Sometimes I find I start losing weight again when I start purposely trying to maintain my weight when a plateau hits.

    No matter what, I think you can do this. You don't have to get surgery. That's up to you. I'm on here myself to avoid it and I'm losing the weight. I have a long way to go, but I know this works, so I'm not giving up. Hang in there! emoticon Sometimes slow going is enough to win the race! emoticon

    emoticon That doesn't have to be your future, we all have ups and downs but don't let this down moment to make you give up. We are all here for support.... A suggestion I would give to you is to make another short term goal apart from weight loss example ( snack on healthy snack s only for 10 days i.e fruits and veggies, or eat a serving of veggies and fruits with each meal for a week. When you make it through the set time the sense of accomplishment will give you some motivations.

    Talk with someone who understand your goals and supports you
    Get an accountability partner even here on SP and you can keep each other in check. emoticon

    Don't give up. Gastric bypass is not a panacea. I'm reading Carnie Wilson's memoir about what led up to her surgery. I know she lost a lot of weight THEN, but she's heavy again today. I think if you can possibly lose weight by modifying your eating and amping up your fitness, it's better. It is so easy to be negative, in fact I've read several blogs--my own included!--that express a loss of zeal for the program. The worst thing to do would be to give up. Please turn to spark or some other understanding person when you feel hope fading. emoticon emoticon

    Stay with your healthy habits. Eating better and still working out. Great. Keep at it. Sorry about your Mom's situation. Hopefully you can do what you need. Your situation doesn't have to end up like your Mom's. emoticon
