What's wrong with me?!?!?!

I am feeling a bit down at the moment. It seems like I'm getting nowhere fast with my weight loss. I made it to the gym this morning and walked 4 miles. So far I have logged 9 miles for February. With all those snow days last week I got really off track. *sigh*. I swear I make excuses for everything when it comes to my weight.

So while I'm feeling bad about my fitness journey my husband and son are feeling great. You should see Dave...his clothes just hang on him. I truly am happy for him, but a bit jealous, too. It seems like I've done this same thing at least 1,000 times. Oh, let's be honest. I have.That's the problem. And here I am in the same exact place I was a year ago, 2 years ago, 10 years ago...trying to get a grip on food.

UGH!! Food!!!

I hate food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is a process.

I can do this.

I can.

I will.

What are you struggling with at the moment? Please share!


  1. I'm fighting the same struggle! I was hoping to have lost 10 pounds by now and I'm only at 3. I know it's because I'm not being consistent enough, but I just don't know how to get my head into it! It's more of a mental struggle than anything else. Tomorrow is a new start, try, try again! :-)

  2. So... I just got both today and yesterday's post in my reader this morning. I hope this is not a trend; another blog I read shows up days late! Sigh.

    Anyhoo - I can very much identify with what you are feeling, Leslie. Been there, done that, rinse and repeat. Sigh.

    So... you and I, we can do this. Much as it goes against my nature, I know I have to be patient. If we just work on this day by day, a few months from now we will look back and finally see our hard work paid off and slowly added up to a loss over time. (Can you tell I am giving myself a pep talk too here?)

    So... today. Let's do it. And if you ever want to vent or need a friendly shoulder or want to reach out for anything - I'm here for you.

  3. We can to this, dear Les!!! TOGETHER!!! Every day I'm struggling . . . but with great support and friends out there (LIKE YOU!) I am able to make it through the rough days. I hope you find the strength to make it through your rough days, too! Sending you the spirit of strength, my friend!

  4. Girl, you just need to find your Holy Grail of weight loss!!! Check out my post today, maybe something will ring true for you? Never fear, we will help you regain your mojo...
