The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.Daniell Koepke (via psych-facts)
YAY!! I’m so glad to hear it! I can’t say enough how helpful progress pictures are. I’ve stopped weighing myself all together and I only use photos and occasional measurements to track progress! ^_^ BIg hugs, keep up the awesome work!!
I don’t think you’re doing anything wrong if you’re eating healthy and exercising! What is your current weight? What do you usually eat in a day? I tend to hold on to a ton more water weight when I eat vegan convenience/processed items like fake meats and what not. If your diet includes a lot of those, maybe you’re just holding onto excess water weight?
Our weight loss started quickly because we cut out all fast food and soda, but it’s been constant up’s and down’s since then. I don’t believe anyone has a constant downhill trend with weight loss. Lots of things can affect the number on the scale like PMS, excess sodium, etc. I recommend taking progress pictures and measurements. They’re FAR more accurate than the scale.
Consult with your doctor~ They’d be much better suited to access your personal situation than I would be. But keep your head up and keep going! Hugs, hugs, hugs!
You will lose weight if you eat healthy and try to exercise! I know its hard to get motivated sometimes.. I still have my days where I really don’t wanna drag my butt out of bed. Try to make healthy grab and go snacks.. (baby carrots+hummus, frozen grapes, celery+pb, etc) to keep on hand. Just try to make healthy choices most of the time. No one is perfect 100% of the time.
When I’m wanting to just munch endlessly, I try to do it on fruits and veggies or even popcorn. Stuffing yourself with grapes is vastly different than stuffing yourself with ice cream, even though I’d recommend still having ice cream occasionally! Moderation is definitely key. Big hugs to you!! Keep your head up! You can do it! x
Aww your message is gonna make me cry! Thank you so much!! It means the world to me, honestly. <3 Big hugs!!!
