Mollysue, I’m so sorry that you are gaining. I feel the SAME frustration. I am frustrated at myself. I am not surprised that I’m not losing since I am eating junk and drinking too. I am really good part of the time, maybe like 50% of the time.
I think that we just need to face this mindset change. We want to change and be happy with how we look in the mirror, but at the same time change is hard.
Last night I was so sad because it was so obvious that I was sabotaging my plans of losing weight by eating chocolate and yet I kept doing it anyway.
I know I can lose weight because I have done it in the past. I just need to pick myself up, AGAIN, and move forward. I was feeling so great on Friday weight-wise. Then Saturday happened and it leads to over eating for another two days. I wish I were more moderate in my indulgences.
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing—that’s why we recommend it daily.”
