My wife suggested I write about how I was feeling yesterday. I told her I didn’t want to, because I don’t want a sympathy party…so hold on those responses. Instead I am seeking the collective wisdom of all who read this blog.
I’m tired. I’m tired of watching every food I eat and counting points. I’m tired of feeling guilt on a week when I don’t hit the gym. I am tired of fearing Friday morning and what will be the tale of the scale. I’m tired of being out with friends and passing on a second beer or a handful of peanuts at a ball game. I’m tired of eating endless fruits while ignoring more fun, less healthy snacks. I’m tired of avoiding pizza or burgers.
I am experiencing diet fatigue and I’m not yet sure how to deal with it. My gym bag is in my car for after work today. Maybe an hour on the treadmill and bike will help.
I am at 84 pounds lost on my way to my next goal of 100 by Christmas. My long term goal of losing 150 is still a ways off. I know I am 2/3 of the way there, but it still seems impossibly far away.
There are successful dieters who read this blog. What do you do to break through the blahs? I was tempted to gorge on unhealthy food, but resisted. You’d think that would make me feel better but it didn’t.
So here I am on a Monday, feeling the diet blahs.
