Feeling a little down

Hello everyone...

Everyone who still occasionally clicks on this blog. I haven't regularly updated this in a long time for various reasons.
It got sort of boring for me
I fealt like I had nothing of value to say...so I just didn't say anything
I was busy
etc. etc. etc.

This isn't a blog post to say I'll be back blogging full force. It's just to let you know I'm still here. Still trying to lose weight. Still failing most days.

I've tried so many "plans" and failed at all of them so far. The plans work, but my brain doesn't most of the time. I hesitate to even tell anyone I'm doing weight watchers because I don't want to be seen as starting and failing yet another thing...so I just have kept my mouth shut. Wow, this sounds like a depressing blog post huh? It's the truth though.

The first week on WW I lost 5 pounds
The second week I lost .5 lbs
This week I didn't weigh in.
We will see what next week holds....

Why is it so hard???!!!!!! I know what to do, and more importantly I know what NOT to do. Yet I'm still stuck.
I lose steam so easily. It's frustrating and it's hard to believe I can ever lose weight.

Anyone else feeling this way?


  1. Absolutely! It's one of the tougher things to do...if you haven't read Ann's post at http://twelve-in-twelve.com/?p=2402
    Maybe it'll help? And Elle's post at http://www.priorfatgirl.com/2012/01/to-answer-the-question.html
    Good luck; if you do decide to start blogging more regularly (for accountability) I'll be reading:-)

  2. I feel your pain. I'm a big bang kind of girl but I just need to focus on one thing per week. My thing this week is blogging. It's the thing that keeps me conscious and accountable. I wish I had some cheerleader-y words for you, but I don't. Just tie a knot and hang on.

    1. I understand not wanting to tell people the latest effort/attempt/program/plan/whatever. That's why my blog is anonymous (for now) and I haven't told my family I'm blogging.

      I just scrolled through your blog for the first time today and was laughing out loud (fuck bees? vita-mix whore? You're my kind of girl!) so if you do keep writing, you've got another reader in me. Best wishes.

  3. Katy, you are so not alone. I started out 2009 at 369, got down to 269 by December 09, then in 2010-2011 I got back up to 360. I've been trying again, albeit only halfheartedly, for 7 weeks, some weeks losing, others gaining. I'm not giving up and holing onto every prayer that something is going to "click" soon. Hang in there, because I believe we'll make it. Our continuing to fight just can't be for nothing, you know?

  4. Not me personally, but I watch my husband do it over and over and over again. He has said so much of what you described. Hugs.
