Weight loss journey gone wrong

It’s confession time! Uhhh yeah, I think the title says it all!  This weight loss journey has taken a wrong turn!
 I am so struggling to get back on track!  I want to!  Oh how I want to!   I am ready to.   But....woah...I just had an epiphany  while I was writing my confessions.   Like right when I wrote the word woah It all became clear to me!  

I have a food addiction.   Over the past few months I’ve actually had a pretty good handle on my addiction.  I have been in control.  I have managed.  And while it hasn’t been fast, I have been losing.  Queue in the sound of tires coming to a screeching halt!  Yes, and then I hit that wall.  I gained unexpectedly.  I gained 4 pounds unexpectedly!  And I took a mini vacation from weight loss.   And that mini vacation set the addiction free.   

Oh I’m still in the game.  I still am working on losing the weight.  But more of my time is spent in regrets for eating what I ate!   Seriously, I sit there and KNOW I shouldn’t eat something!  Yet a few minutes later...almost without any control over myself I find myself eating said item!  I’ve lost control!

So back to square one.....controlling the addiction!   This is hard work...and a total mental game.  But I know I can do it!  I am going to starting to get myself back under control at the most impossible time....two days before thanksgiving!   Two weeks before my birthday....one month before Christmas!   But I can do this!!!

I don't pretend to have my eating issues under control but the book "Brain Over Binge Recovery Guide" makes a lot of sense around my compulsive and overeating issues. You are right, it takes diligence and I have been impressed with your level of diligence. It's still there and if you keep working toward the goal it will reach a point where it feels natural again.

I am with you...I am really struggling too, mine is emotional eating...
Dig deep, keep working at it and I am sure you will find the strength and you will be heading towards that goal again.

I know that a lot of people feel like they will be overweight for the rest of their lives with no way out, but they can come back from those years of failed diets and those many days of feeling hopeless. I read a lot about the subject and came across https://bit.ly/2XiqPCW. It’s exciting to see the results that people are getting. I hope it do the same for others. Your articles have been very informative and inspiring, thanks!

Please don’t think of it as weight loss journey gone wrong. It isn’t wrong. You really have been doing everything right. You’re just going through a rough patch right now. But it certainly sounds like you have a plan to turn everything around. You’ve lost a lot of weight and really have improved your overall health. That is an accomplishment. This time of the year it is easy to get off track. But every day offers us the chance to change things. I have gained weight the last few weeks & I am right back at it. I am off track however I am not going to allow things to spiral out of control. We have this.looking forward to reading your future posts!

I have been reading your website for quite a few months now and find many of the posts disheartening. I think I will not visit here for 4-6 months, come back then, and hopefully things will have changed. I just don't need the constant failures and "woe is me" content at this time in my life journey. Sometimes we really must take control of ourselves.

Bon chance.

dont think of it as a failure or an obstacle, but a challenge because even though you gained again you also learned something very important about yourself. And youre right this is more of a mental game then physical.

The struggle this time of year is real for me! We can do this, right?

My journal quote for the day is "Let go of your doubt, reluctance, hesitation and spring immediately into action. You have goals to be achieved, make a commitment and persist in honoring that commitment."

We shouldn't call it losing weight. We should call it gaining confidence. Losing sounds for most people simply not healthy. Mind virtue and be thankful and I’m also so grateful I found https://tiranatural.club/fastweightloss, it helped me (and a friend of mine) not only lose weight but keep it off, hope it helps some others! For me it is all about wanting to develop further your mentality. Regards, try to have fun when losing weight. Why would you need to believe it is a battle?
