Struggling...still struggling

I am having a tough time this week for some reason. All I want to do is eat. I was reading an excellent post by Lyn, from Escape from Obesity blog, and all I could do was nod my head in agreement when she described how binge behaviors occur. This has happened to me twice this week, and I don't know what starts it, or why I do it. Truly it is like an alien takes over my body and just eats! It leaves you feeling horrible, both physically and mentally.

I called to talk to my fitness coach yesterday. He has suggested mixing things up. Trying to increase the cardio, and then varying my intake. Some days eating 1400 cals, then others 1800 or 1900 calories. (My usual intake is 1700 calories.) I know that I need to do something to get back into it and start losing again. I have basically been stuck at the same weight for about three months, and I am so ready to go down under 300 lbs.

It is at least nice to know that many of you struggle with these same issues of wanting to eat things that are not good for us. I hope to someday not be tempted by foods I should not eat, but I have a feeling that day is a LONG time coming.
Nevertheless, I shall not give up, and I am going to give it my all for the rest of the week before weigh-in.


  1. Thanks for that, Sue. I am feeling the same way; maybe something was in the air this week????!!!!

  2. You go, Sue! You have done so well so far - just push on through. Varying your intake sounds as wacky as any of the other stuff that seems to work - so why not? :)

    You can do this. You are far too strong to be beaten by a few cravings!

  3. Persevere... you can do it! These frustrating feelings suck, but at least you have a good support system to lean on.

  4. Last week my calories were all over the place, but still on plan and I had a nice loss. Good luck!

    Chin up and keep going!

  5. YOU CAN DO IT!!!
    GREAT job so far!!! ♥
