It has been awhile since I have written on my blog partly because I am not sure what to write.  I have been extremely frustrated with this whole weight loss thing.  I have literally been at this for  5 years.  Sure I may have had a couple weeks where my head hasn't been completely in the game but even then it has been at the back of my mind.   You can see that from my blog posts, Facebook posts, Intragram and my fitness pal.  I have tried goals of the week and monthly goals sometimes I failed and sometimes I  succeeded.   During this blog I have ran 5km, 10km and most recently a half marathon.  I have tried new exercises classes and  several different healthy eating plans.  Weight Watchers, South Beach, Gluten Free Diet and the 17 day diet.   And I am not one of those people who try for a couple of days.  I commit myself to months and months to each plan.  But still I sit at present at 248.  I am up over 22 pounds since I first wrote my first blog post over 3 years ago.   I am grateful to have met many people in the blog world and follow your proud moments and struggles through your own journey.  But at present I am exhausted!  of trying and trying and not seeing the results!  I am not sure what to do anymore.  This post is not meant for you to feel sorry for me but I am stating some facts.  Do you guys have any suggestions?   


  1. I am so inspired by you because you don't ever give up. I understand that it can be a long, difficult journey with many bumps along the way .. But think of how much you've grown on the inside and how much you've learned about yourself along the way. Sometimes, it's not just about the results we get on the scale, but the results we get on the inside :)

  2. I read your blog and I sense your frustration....... sounds like you have stuck emotional energy .... ??? For now try to avoid self-destructive coping techniques like binge eating, drinking too much, or burning the candle at both ends. They'll just leave you less able to cope with the stress of change. Sending you lots of hugs . MomQ.

  3. I'm sorry you're tired and frustrated. Believe me, I've been there! I lost almost 90 pounds, but it took me 12 YEARS to finally get it done! Don't give up...take some time to regroup. I KNOW you can do it. Look what you've already accomplished!! {{hugs}}
