More Struggles

Seeing as how I am on a roll will all these feelings....

I am really struggling with this weight thing. I so badly want to be healthy and fit, but I just can't seem to stick to anything. Some people would say that I just don't want it bad enough, but that is not true. I feel like I have no control when it comes to eating. I try and I will do so good for a few hours or days, and then it will all come crashing down. It doesn't matter what kind of shakes I drink, as long as I keep eating 40 big feet candies in one sitting nothing will change.

My diet is a lot healthier than it used to be, thats for sure. But I still eat too much junk. I feel like I have no restraint. I don't know what to do. I don't know how to change. I don't know how to stop. I feel like I will never change. I will always be fat.  I hate that thought. I don't want that to be true. I want to be one of those success stories, but I don't know how. Honestly I am tired of trying. Maybe I should just accept that I will be like this forever?!?

Please, if you have any ideas of what will help me, please let me know.

Lindsey,
I'm sharing this same struggle.....
I'm addicted to junk food. I would much rather eat some chips than a salad any day! I know I have a problem but it is so hard not to stop. I'm praying that God will give me the courage and strength to make healthier choices and to avoid certain aisles at the grocery store-ha!

For me, one thing that really helps is to just not buy junk food. I make a meal plan for the week, and buy ONLY those things.

Hey Lindsay, I hear your pain and I would agree with Stacey, not having it in the house in the first place is a good step, another "trick" is to chew gum when you feel the urge for something sweet. You have to remember that a food addiction is very similar to an alchol addiction, one is too many, one is all it takes to get the cycle started so it is best to try to avoid your "problem " food altogether. It also helps to drink LOTS of water! Bless you and hang in there and know that the Shepherd knows where to find you! Hugs Diane

I also am overweight and haven't found much of anything that works. I've tried diets that do take the pounds off, but they always come back with a vengeance. Ugh.
I do agree with Stacey that don't buy junk food and bring it home. Have you tried cooking from home and from scratch? That is healthier at least and then the only problem left is portion control.
I'm trying to get motivated since the beginning of October to at least walk a mile everyday (on the treadmill / outside), but haven't mustered up the motivation to actually DO it.
Change sometimes takes very small steps ... eating more green beans vs. chips for dinner. That's what I keep telling myself.
I would try to exercise or eat right first, not both at the same time. Try two days a week for a few weeks, then go to three for a few weeks.
This is a VERY long post for someone who struggles with weight. :) I hope at least you know that I'm right there with ya in spirit and am trying to do the very things I write to you. Its just so DARN HARD!!!

you have lost so much weight Lindsey, every time I look at you I see what hard work and trying and trying and trying again can do and I'm truly in awe. You know what has worked for you in the past, try those things again. Look back at pictures and remind yourself how far you've come and how awesome it feels to move your body and taste fresh, wholesome food. You are an amazing woman, full of creativity, passion for life and so much more. ((((((((((BIG HUGS)))))))))))

Thank you ladies for the encouragement and suggestions! Sometimes I am so temped just to give up and eat a whole box of chocolate bars. I really need to plan my meals ahead of time , I think that would help.

Stacey said...

And I ditto what Jobina said as well. I think maybe because we only see you every few months, I really see the changes in you!
