For The Third Time

Thursday is here and time for me to come clean about my journey.

I am currently in a funk. I have lost and gained the same 5lbs over and over. I believe this is now my third time around. With my loss yesterday of .4lbs I am back to 24lbs lost (31.2lbs from my heaviest), and seem to be struggling AGAIN!

I was hoping to really make a fresh start with the boys getting back to school and only having one left at home. But, that hasn't happened AT ALL!! We are now coming up to the end of the 2nd week, and where am I? Tired...really tired....and eating!

The first week was screwy with Gabe going on Tuesday, but Zach not going til Thursday. This week Gabe was home sick Tuesday, went for half the day wednesday, now Isaac is sick too. Tomorrow is friday and all I want to do is sleep! I am waiting for Zach to get it too which should make for a fun weekend.

Everyday I just keep failing to pull myself back together and get back on track. I don't want to spiral out of control. I don't want to gain anything more back. I don't want to have to lose this same stupid 5 pounds again.

So i ask you.....what do you do when you feel like you are at the end of your rope? When life just seems to be a little too much for the moment and your good old friend FOOD is taunting you every moment, and you are giving in more than you are fighting it. How do you regain control?

Today is BLOG HOP day.

blog hop!

So come on along!


  1. Hugs.
    Food is a nasty, evil temptress. I wish I knew how to tame her.
    Keeping on track is something I fear losing as well.

    I've seen some blogs with a reward system for the little steps, might be a consideration?

  2. Oh I know that feeling. A lot of that went on for me last year.

    Just set yourself a small goal.

    Can I suggst a non-weight goal?

    An exercise goal? Or a getting to bed early at least three nights next week goal?

    THEN, a weight goal.

    Go back to basics of what worked initially.

    Re-visit that?

  3. I am sure there is a quote about the number of times we get knocked down and getting back up... But quotes always seem so, sooooo, so annoying.
