Seriously this weight loss thing feels like it is taking FOREVER.
I feel so unmotivated! It gets harder each day to eat properly.
I feel like I am just going to be this giaganitc person FOREVER!
I really just hate it.
Anyone else want to have a pity party with me?

I hear ya! I’m one week out and not near the weight I was hoping to be for the wedding.
Honestly though – I am a ridiculous amount healthier (FI makes me eat really healthy, and I exercise as much as I have time for). And I’m beginning to think that really is the most important thing. Definitely doesn’t make wearing a bathing suit any easier though!
I haven’t tried on my dress since I bought it (living in another country), and I’m terrified! It barely did up when I bought it and haven’t really lost much weight since. It’s a size 10, and I am a street size 14 on top and 16 on bottom. I read everywhere that wedding dresses fit really small, so I’m freaking out even more thinking I might have the wrong size all together!
Don’t give up though! I know it’s tough and super crappy, but your health is so much more important than your weight. 🙂 You’re definitely doing the right thing by keeping with it!!

i found the easiest way to achieve weight loss goals is to have a partner – preferably your FI! my husband and i have made a pact to go to the gym 4 days a week mon-thurs even if its just for 30 minutes. it is really great because if i dont feel like going he will be like nope we are going and visa versa – its so easy to just tell yourself “ill go tomorrow” or “ill eat right tomororw” but when you have someone to push you and to lean on for support i think it really really helps! Good Luck – and know that your shape and size does not define who you are 🙂

I totally hear you on this one. I feel like I try so hard, and do good for a few days, then the weekend comes and it just erases all my progress. Plus, we just got our e-pics back on Wednesday, and, while they are great pictures, there are ones where I just cringe at how I look, so I’m feeling like I really, really need to step up my efforts.

I will have a great week and then the wine and going to eat always kills me on the weekend. I however started doing the 30 day shred yesterday and I’m really commited. I can’t stay this fat forever.

I will totally have a pity party with you. I want to loose weight so bad but im just lazy! then when I do commit (eat really healthy/exercise) It takes months to loos just a few pound then I give up… I think I will be fat forever too. I love the beach and i cant imagine putting a bathing suit on this year 🙁

@totheislnds: FI is really great! He is also trying to loose weight and we work together on this. But some days are SO hard especially when we get together with family.
We have been going swimming together for the past 2 weeks. When I am feeling like “Ugh not today” he is like “My love, please come even if you just watch” and then that obviously makes me want to get up.

I can totally relate to this. I have been on WW for like 9weeks I think it is…..but my life has been crazy busy and I haven’t weighed in since the 13th and that week for some reason I gained 1.4lbs! I was devestated.
I struggled alot last week with getting myself back on track and not letting it affect me…I haven’t been tracking like I should but I have been watching everything I eat. I did weigh in this am and it said I am at 236 which is that 1.4lbs gone again exactly! So, that made me happy.
We are moving tomorrow, so I know that’s going to be some good exercise so I’m hoping that brings me back down to actually hitting my 5% goal with WW which is 235.4.
It’s a daily struggle but we can all do it. That’s why I love this board, because when we need motivation, our fellow Bees are right here to help!

When I first changed my eating habits it totally felt like that. I always felt the same, my body never changed (in my mind). It took months and months of forcing myself to eat the same pre-packaged dinners each day. Eventually, I got used to it and it became my routine. Most people think it is depressing, but about once a month or so I will get something other than a frozen dinner for lunch.
I started eating 1 Luna Bar for breakfast, 1 Smart Ones for lunch, and then two pieces of pizza for dinner as I loved pizza. I might have those mini rice cakes with that since I loved rice cakes. Now I eat the same meal every day and I’m still losing weight. I don’t recommend it for everyone, but I see a ton of results with it. I am also one of those people who can listen to the same song about 20 times in a row before I get bored with it if I really like the song. I am very into routine. If you know you are, eating the same thing each day with a little variation will work wonders. =)

Me! I gained back two pounds this week, which I know was because I didn’t stay on points AT ALL, but it is still upsetting. I agree with @Ahone: if i stick to the same basic meals everyday I do great, but when I switch it up I gain.

@miss. eire: & @Ahone: This! I started eating these pre-packaged salads in the begining and did so well! Lost a lot of weight.Then I went back to eating leftover from dinner the night before and now always eat up to my calorie goal!
I am back on eating the salads this week and hopefully will continue next week!
