Out of Control

I need help getting back on track. I've been eating like crazy the past 3-4 weeks. Not counting calories, not exercising, not getting my protein in, not getting my vitamins in, not even feeling good about myself, and I don't know how to get back on track. I feel like a pathetic loser. People keep asking me how much I've lost and I've been saying 30 lbs. for what feels like forever! I don't want to fail! 
I need help and I don't know where or who to turn to. I don't even know if I need a fill or not. Like I mentioned in my last blog, I get stuck with my first few bites, and then I can eat pretty normal! I don't feel restricted at all after those first few bites. Every night I say I'm going to call and make an appointment for a fill and in the morning I'm super restricted so I back out of it. 
Please tell me I'm normal to be going through a regression............that I'm not the only one that has felt like a failure..........I need all the words and advice I can get at this point!


  1. Well, I can definitely tell you you're not the only one who's regressing :( unfortunately, we're in the same boat. I've been the same weight for about a month. It's terribly obnoxious. I wish I had advice for you, but my plan is just get back on track. I've been skipping my morning protein shakes and I think that's been a problem. Good luck to you though. Hopefully we can both get back to losing.

  2. Melissa, you are normal. Try to just have a protein shake in the morning; that is what I do and it helps the morning tightness. Then mid-morning I have a yogart. After that, the tightness is not that bad.
    I suggest you call the doctor and discuss with him; maybe ask to talk to a nutrienist too.
    You are not a failure at anything until you give up. So, dont' give up. Truxt me, I know how you feel.

  3. this is a tough time of the year. lots of temptations around! I just watch my signs (buying food that I know I shouldn't, snacking between meals, stress eating, etc) and go in for fills when I need to (even tiny fills). Stay with it, you can do it!

  4. I'm with you. I've been within the same 5 lbs since october. Frustrating. BUT I know I haven't been trying as hard as I can. So we can both get back on track together. :)

  5. I'm right there with you! I'm up 4 lbs over my comfort zone and it's killing me. We can all do this!!

  6. There are so many going through EXACTLY what you're going through (raising my hand). I'd talk to your doc about a fill and see what he recommends. As for first bite syndrome, it sounds crazy but I heard someone got an adjustment from a chiropractor and didn't have that problem anymore (sounds crazy, I know). I've set New Year's as my last day of not caring. Starting Monday, I'm back on track and training for a 5k to keep me motivated. We all just need to recommit (I know this is easier said than done).
