Neverending battle. Will I ever get there?

Do some of you ever feel like we are fighting a never ending battle and that you'll never reach your goal?

I have these days often. When i look in the mirror and think, " I'll never get there" Everytime i lose weight, i gain it back, then i lose it again...and gain it back again.

Do you wonder if you'll ever get there? I wonder how much longer i can keep up trying.

I think you just might want to change your attitude. Yes, staying healthy, fit, and slim is a long-term process -- that's why so many people regain the weight they lose -- but why not look at it as a lifestyle change, rather than a neverending battle? It's worked for me. I lost 30 pounds and kept it off for 6 years (till I got pregnant.)

So try to keep positive -- and keep trying! there's really no good alternative, is there?

I feel the same way! I'm so sick of it- the losing and then gaining back. I've started a new group- the 30 day challenge! I'm ready to commit to reaching my goals once and for all, and take the next 30 days to push myself harder than ever before to form habits that stick!
join me!

Yes I have felt that way and sometimes still do for a time.
But it is funny, this time I have changed everything about the way I diet. I don't know any better way to put it. I know some people take offense to the word diet.
But I have changed the foods that I eat. I am learning how to substitue healthier foods for the ones I used to eat. And portion size is really important.
Instead of using so much meat in meals I use veggies. Lots of different kinds of them. And I try to not have to eat the same thing every day. It is so easy to get bored with your food. It does take effort. More than just picking up a burger on the way home from work or whatever.
The interesting thing is I love the food I eat. It is low calorie and taste amazing and I am losing tons of weight.
It is worth the fight. It is worth the effort. YOU are worth putting out the energy it takes to get healthy.
Try not to look at it as trying, but I am going to do it. Period.
Keep at it and I wish you the best.

I used to wonder if I'd ever get there and I've done the gain, lose, gain, lose cycle for years. But then I quit trying to fool myself. New body requires new habits -whether it's overhauling the entire diet, eating less of the current diet, making small changes, big changes, moving more, moving period - current habits do not get us to our goals.

Consider this - when you DO IT, when you put your mind to it, you lose weight. You have proven to yourself that you CAN lose weight. It's when you stop trying that you gain it back. Every time I stop what I was doing to lose the weight - I gained it back - no surprise there. I REALLY, REALLY wish I could keep all my old habits and get to my goal weight, but, sigh, it is not to be! And nothing says we have to go full throttle, if it takes a year, so what? A year will pass either way - the question is do you want to have the same body a year from now?

Next time you look in the mirror tell yourself, 'I've done it before and I WILL do it again.'
