Weight Issues

I struggle with my eating habits all the time. I do good for awhile when I want to loose weight and then something (stress) comes along and bam I over eat once again. I can say that I'm addicted to chocolate and I'm not real proud of it. Sometimes I kick myself for not doing better with my eating habits and I have learned that it only makes it worse, so I try hard not to put myself down for this. I don't like the way I look and feel, and some days I want to cry at the way I look in the mirror, other days it's a look of who cares and I am what I am. Do any of you ever have this problem? Do you ever feel the way I do? I'm sure I'm not alone, but there are days I feel like it.
Why does loosing some weight and keeping it off have to be so hard?
Some people say it's easy to control and just exercise and eat less, well I don't think they live in my head. I'm not trying to make an excuse, but dang!
Just another confusing thought pattern going on in my head.

I am the same way...Ryan and I are trying to loose weight together this summer (he is doing better than I am)

I struggle too. I think the older we get the harder it is to lose as well. Everything just slows down. I can't lose weight since losing my thyroid. Crazy.

Robyn....NO you not alone!! You could have described me there with what you wrote. I finally hit my "wall" this past winter and got to a point of absolute disgust with what I was seeing in the mirror, so I took action. I'm happy to say that I've lost 10 pounds and have developed a regular exercise program. I know it's not as simple as what others will say, "Well, just do it!"....we all struggle with different issues and each need is different. I have never had emotional eating habits so that's one struggle I didn't have to contend with. I just didn't make very good choices, AND I do tend to eat if I'm bored.

Just be encouraged that it CAN be done! I would encourage you to find a group (local or on-line) who you can be accountable to and also share struggles and triumphs!

God bless.....

Of course... I wake up every day and think about it. It isn't as simple as we want it to. And there is NO miracle pill. :l(
