Discouragement

I am on my 28th day of Jenny and by the third week I was already slipping. I originally weighed 237lbs. when I first went in and after the first week I lost 6lbs. Obviously right off the bat the weight loss was fast, but now it has slowed down quite a bit. I'm only on the fourth week and I already feel myself losing the positivity that I had in the beginning and not believing in myself. I've strayed from the plan many times this week and I think a lot of it had to do with last week's weigh in. It really threw me off being positive about the whole thing. I didn't lose anything and even gained a tiny bit like point something lbs. I weigh 229 now. I'm so afraid because my weigh-in for this week is tomorrow and I'm thinking about skipping it just so I don't have to deal with seeing that I may have gained weight from cheating this week. On a positive note I have definitely upped my activity level. I started couch to 5k and went for a number of walks. I just really need to be patient and stay positive and not let my negative energy get me down and make me throw my hands up and say "I give up!" It is hard because I have hypothyroidism, so the weight loss process is going to be very slow no matter what. I just feel like it is out of my control and it really depresses me.

I'm newer to Jenny as well and I am in the same boat. You have to remind yourself that you are on the right track and losing weight isn't going to happen overnight - it takes time and hard work. You should celebrate the little achievements (I need to take my own advice!). Celebrate the fact that you have started increasing your activity level, thats a big accomplishment and something you should be proud of! This is a journey and there will be ups and downs, but you have to keep telling yourself you're worth it and you deserve to be happy, be healthy and feel good about yourself!

It's okay to let yourself slip up as long as you look at the reason ( boredom, depressed, etc. ) and come up with a way to handle it the next time the feelings comes along. I've lost 62 lbs of my 75 lbs and have slipped every week of the 9 months. But... my slips are much better than the past. I can now stop myself at one serving instead of the whole bag. I "Let myself" enjoy a treat now and then without feeling like I have to "eat as much as I can" because I won't get any for awhile - like on a diet. I can go through the drive thru without ordering fries ( large please). I can make healthy choices when I eat out. It's taken awhile and sometimes I wonder if I'll make it but know that slow is the key and figuring out my eatting habits are more important. Stay positive and post often. Visit the forum when your feeling down. I spen hours tonight reading other's post. Kept me from the refrigerator and I'm feeling more positive and have a can do attitude.

OMG! I could have written this post. I also have Hypothyroid, along with diabetes. Tomorrow is WI for week 3 for me also and i am terrified to see that scale. I was down 4 then up 2 and hate to see what tomorrow brings. I am also discouraged, but reading your post has helped me see that I'm not the only one struggling. Sounds like we need to hold each other up.

Wow you guys, thank you so much for responding! This was my first ever post and I cannot thank you enough for taking time out to respond and empathize with me. I think we can get through anything if we all continue to encourage each other on here. It is so comforting to talk to people going through similar experiences!
