Can't Find a Reason

Why is it that when you really try to accomplish something that it can take nothing to make you feel terrible and want to give up.  For the last three weeks I have been able to lose some weight at my TOPS meetings and I was really trying for week four to have weight loss results.  However, my body refused to cooperate and I gained weight.  I know that I should be positive but I just can't seem to find a reason to be so.  I know the journey is a long one but I was really vigilent and disciplined and by my scales at home - they said I had stayed the same.  What a crock that was!  I have been trying to figure out if I want to stick with this program with my slow and lagered "progress" or if I should just say the heck with it and deal with things on my own.  At least this way I wouldn't be wasting my time and everyone else's.  I don't know why a weight gain spirals me into a funk but maybe there is a higher power trying to tell me that I am not meant to succeed in this one venture in life.

I think I know what I will do but we will have to see if any real glimmers of hope and reality will turn the tide.

I hope everyone else enjoys their weekend and Happy Stitching (at least)!

Just hang in there Trina...we all have been there and we are still all there. It's a hard task to accomplish, it's frustrating, it's disheartening and anything else. Think of how well you have done so far already..That's weight you have lost and we still carrying extra a few months ago, that's what I do when I get really mad about not loosing.I am lighter than I was last year in February, so that is success anyway you look at's about being grateful for the little things, even when you feel like crying and giving up..It's a journey and sometimes there are little detours we take, whether we like them or not. You will find the right combination of things to do that works for you. Don't give up! We are all there with you.
