worm2butterfly2012's Journal, 03 February 2013

At the point I think that dieting is hopeless anymore, I end up losing weight. It almost feels like the Lord allows me to lose a little as soon as I lose hope just to show me there is hope. I'm also learning that weight loss is not easy and it's not meant to be easy. There is a lot to learn about ourselves in the journey. It seems we gain weight with no attention paid to our health or well being, but the weight loss journey is a gift of how to care for ourselves and pay attention to our bodies, minds and spirits. It's a journey of self awakening. It's easier for me to care for other people than to care for myself, but we have to care for ourselves if we want to care for others and be all we can be in life. This is a journey we ultimately do alone. We have support through each other on this site and friends and family, but ultimately, it is us who have to walk this journey and have the will power to do the right thing for our health. I have often wondered why the wrong thing has been such a desirable thing to do? Why can't the right things to do be what we want to do? Why can't veggies taste like candy and candy taste like veggies? I guess this journey just builds character, huh?

You say dieting is hopeless but your not dieting..your changing your lifestyle. Maybe that will help with the yo-yo. I do that as well. One day down the next up but I don't diet, I just eat regular foods...all about portion control and moderation!! :) Keep up the good work!!!

That was beautifully written! Read it to yourself again! I think you have said, that is isn't hopeless! You have pointed out so many positives of the journey. SO MANY! Now, you need to figure out why that journey hits road blocks from time to time. I haven't even figured that out, but you have figured out more than me already and I have been "dieting" all my darn life. Always getting those bad days, that I want to eat everything in the world. I can't stress enough how much some medication has helped me. If you have never tried an anti depressant like wellbutrin, cymbalta or prozac or or or, you should talk to your doctor if you are hungry, tired, etc. Last year, I had physical cravings all the time, stayed in bed etc, then finally went on someting and for me, almost overnight I felt those urges fade. It was still work, but the can be controlled. I also ran out of meds and gained another 40 pounds Grrr, then I just got on Cymbalta and within 2 weeks ahhh, the crazy cravings bad thoughts that held me back are fading, now it is up to me to eat healthy and create good habbits that I was lacking. If you have any questions, send me an email! It has been a very long road for me.
