I'm at the end of week 2 and I feel so deflated. I lost my weight loss buddy, we had less then a week of communication and poof! I don't know what happened other then I work full time and can't write daily, but I thought we were getting on the same page. I haven't gotten a response from the last 2 messages I left her. OK, fine, keep going and on my first measurement day I lose almost 4" all around and I very excitedly tell my dh. His response "hmm". Fine he's busy, so I bring it up later, his response was a very monotone "I know, I heard you the first time." Are you serious? I've been trying to do this for 3 yrs, I finally do and it's working and you don't care. Screw you! Yes, we had a fight, bad night, Sunday and I haven't brought up weight loss since.
I don't have any other support system, I'm 3000 miles away from my family and I don't have any real friends here. Like I said up top I'm feeling deflated, I ate pizza last night and I didn't work out this morning. I'm probably just feeling sorry for myself, but whatever. I need to vent
However, I have not had one sip of Diet Coke in a week and a half and that means I have not given up completely yet!
I am really liking this group though and I plan on spending more time in here, there are some great posts- motivational and informative, and some great ladies! Thank you!
don't rely on others to motivate you - IT MUST COME FROM WITHIN YOU.
yes it's nice to have compliments from others but to be honest, the only person whom you should look towards for feelings of accoplishments is YOU. if you rely on others to keep you going, you will not succeed... this must come from YOU!
I'm sorry you lost your work out buddy and you husband didn't give you a great response. That sucks.
I know for me, I had to get to a place where I just do not care what anyone thinks about my journey to lose weight. It is about ME. No one to work out with? fine I'll do it myself, you don't care that I lost a lb this week? That's ok, because *I* DO! I have learned that this is about me FOR me and you can join me or I'll do it without you. Nothing is stopping me- not having to work out on my own, not hubby eating his choclate cake- not the stupid scale when it tells me I gained back a lb or two. I have no firends in this state to rely on either and you know what? that's ok! I have Facebook, and I have this gorup and sparkpeople and my zumba studio I go to and that's all I need
You can DO this, but you have to decide that you aren't going to let any of that stop you either
Yes it sucks at times, yes it's hard- but it is worth it.
Don't give up! Don't solely rely on others though so don't let them stop you from achieving your weight loss goals. Focus on your goal and every day you take a step towards that goal is motivation for you to keep at it.
You can always message me or FB me. I'd love to help keep you motived.
I am sorry you are having a rough time and that he isn't being more supportive. My husband is the same way a lot of times and it does hurt. I hope that you can keep your motivation up and do well. Keep up the good work
It's hard to lose weight. It's even harder to do it without any support at home. You might want to join My Fitness Pal. They have a fantastic support system in place, and you could probably find another weight loss buddy who is close to you.
We are always here for you momma.
You hubby sounds a lot like mine. Its been over 2 years and he still doesn't support me with my weight loss.I move 8 hours away from all my friends and family too. But I come here.
I'm proud of you for giving up diet pop. Its SO horrible for you. I have giving up pop for over a year now. I feel so much better and I will never go back to drinking it.
Add me if you want ! It sounds like we have a lot in common.
