Losing Steam

I am stuck - maintaining - at least, not gaining...

Weigh-in on Monday was 220lbs. Just maintaining. I am stuck!!! I don't have motivation to exercise, I don't have motivation to cook much these days. Just feeling exhausted and checked-out a lot. I wonder when I will get out of this funk?!?! I have been taking the bus since my car broke down. Don wants to try his hand at fixing it before I take it in to a mechanic, but he has been busy. It looks like I'll have to wait a few weeks. This is not a bad thing - we have an excellent bus system in my town. The bus stop is a half mile from my home, so whether I like it or not, I am getting at least a mile-long walk each day. The downside is that I live at the edge of town and my commute on the bus is an hour each way, changing 2 buses. The drive was 20 min each way. GRRR!!!

I haven't been reading other blogs consistently - just glancing at them and not responding. I have wanted to isolate myself socially and electronically. I can tell that this is an episode of depression. I am exhibiting all the classic symptoms. I just want to "snap out of it"!

I hear you! We all go though these funks. I blame it on us being women and our wild emotions. It's so easy to keep digging ourselves deeper down. Try to find something positive in your life....a beautiful flower, a little walk, anything that will bring you joy and beauty and feed off of that :)

I had a 6 or 8 week streak of maintenance going once, which was NOT GREAT as I was still actively trying to lose weight. I feel your frustration - it's hard to keep doing the diet thing when nothing changes, but stick with it because eventually your body will get back with the program again.

It's hard when we get into these funks--you'll pull through it though! At least you are maintaining right now and not going the opposite direction.

I wouldn't mind taking the bus either, but I think it'd get on my nerves having to change TWO buses. I hope you feel better soon.

Thank you all for your sweet and wonderful support. I am trying day-by-day. Hoping to make good choices each day. Trying to be forgiving of myself when I don't.
