Losing Weight Sucks

In case you haven't gotten the memo the past 9 months...I'M TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT! Yup and it sucks. Especially when you put on the holiday pounds and they don't want to come off. Especially when those said holiday pounds was almost 10 pounds and they don't want to come off.

I feel SO discouraged right now.  I hate that I am not losing weight.  I feel like I have let myself down and others who have helped and supported me as well.  I had so many goals to reach and I have yet to do so.

I know what has caused this...that's the worse part.  It's all about my diet.  I am not necessarily eating bad, I am just not eating the best I can.  I also have problems saying no to food. If I'm hungry I eat.  If I am bored I eat.


Also being surrounded by people who are not on the same page as I am is hard too.  It sucks having skinny friends who can eat whatever they want and still look amazing.  That is so not my life and never will be.

Also my workouts have not been what they were.  I just have hardly anytime.  I go from 6:30-5 Monday-Thursday.  And by the end of the day I am exhausted.  I have been running three times a week which is good, but I know I need more than that.


I miss being around my family who supported and encouraged me every step of the way.  I miss having a trainer who was always on my butt making me do things the right way.  I am the first to say I cannot do this on my own.

I wanted to be down 50 pounds by graduation which is in 3 months.  Is that going to happen? Probs not.  And while that is completely ok, I know I do not want to be sitting at 190 still come graduation.

Fortunately all of this is can be fixed.  I know what I have to do and now I just HAVE to do it.  I need to eat better and stick to my diet.  I need to get some more workouts in too.  I need to do this and I need to do this NOW!

I want to be the hot skinny girl at graduation.  I want to be the best looking bridesmaid in Becky's wedding.  I want my confidence from 4 months ago back.  I NEED to do this to be healthy most of all!

So here is to refinding all of this and a restart.  I WILL do this.  I WILL reach my goals!

You are doing great! It is so hard to do it on your own, but so worth it. It's a mental game more than anything and once you get a good routine going, it's so much easier...after the first few weeks!

You are doing GREAT Mosby!!! I am so inspired by your drive. You are amazing, seriously!

Melissa Jo said...

You are doing a great job, just stick with it. Loosing weight and being the "skinny" girl isn't an easy goal but it is a worthwhile ago. I believe in you!

Mosby, you look AWESOME!! You are doing so great, and I KNOW you will reach your goal and be an inspiration to others!!

Fixing my diet is the hardest part for me, too. All of last year I FINALLY got on a killer work out routine, and saw little to zero results because I didn't make the diet changes. Here's to both of us focusing on giving our body what it needs! :)

You are doing such a great job!!! I have really been trying hard for the past 2 months to lose weight and I haven't lost anything. It is so frustrating and discouraging. But you have really made some progress :) And I totally know what you mean about food. Like instead of eating mashed potatoes with my dinner I should be having broccoli but it is hard when my bf eats the food

Losing weight is HARD work! So girl, you can do it (and you have been, too!). I get exactly what you mean when it comes to diet and having a support system. Eating without thinking if I'm really hungry has always been a struggle of mine--especially when it comes to snacking. Weight loss is definitely frustrating at times but I'm glad you're still persevering! Good luck to you! I know you can do it!!

Working out really helps lose weight. But once our bodies get used to that specific routine, it gets less effective. I suggest you create different routines when you feel that the current one is not working for you anymore. And when your body gets used to the new one, you can go back to the old routine or you can create another one. Three months is enough time. I’m sure you’ll get that hot body come graduation!
