The last 20ish pounds

Rate this Entry
I feel almost like its worse to be so close to my goal. Ive been having more cheat days and I'm less motivated. I keep thinking... oh well, I'll get it off soon enough. Logically, I should want to just get it off and then I can progress to the next stages and then cheats won't affect me as much.

I feel like I'm holding myself back from my own goal. Has anyone else felt like this?

    YES! I started hitting weightloss goals of my dreams, and when I hit 120lbs I started to sabotage myself. I had my first real cheat, like over 40 days into the game. I was mad at myself, but I have learned that this protocol is not about saying "no" (which causes me to want it more) it's about saying "I am going to live like this (very discipline) for a short period of time, so I can live that that (healthy) for long term"....I also find that we learn how to say "no" to ourselves and over time it gets easier to say no, and to actually feel like we are using that muscle more and more. After a while you realize you don't even want those foods. You WILL get there. Be easy on yourself though. You've made a huge commitment and although cheats are not recommended, the stress and negativity about past actions can really slow progress down. Keep your spirits up and seriously....each new day has no mistakes. Your body will lose the cheat gains way quicker if your head is fully in the game thinking positive toward your future choices.

    I think when it got down to me losing into low weight territory I stared to feel like I would be a total obvious failure if I were to gain again. It's happened in the past. I lost 30lbs all on my own, working out 6 days a week, eating very clean and next to nothing. I felt great, but it took 8 hard months, and all the weight slowly crept back on over 2years.......I think this protocol really works, because we get quick results, we truly get off sugar/starches and then when we add certain foods back in Ph3 we can see that we really don't want those 'bad' foods as much as we thought. Good foods are officially our friend!
    Sorry this was so long! I hope you see the light coming! You deserve to lose the last 20lbs and be proud of it! I find that the nicer I am to myself, and the more I love myself, the more I want to feed it right and treat it right. XO

    I've been feeling the same way this round. I'm so close...one more round and I'll be at my goal weight. And this time I've totally sabotaged my P3 in week 1! After gaining 4# in 3 days I've done just what MeOnHCG said. Trying to "Get my head into this!" So I'm on a steak day today and hopefully back on track tomorrow with a loss close to my LDW.

    Not that it's nice to hear you girls struggling.....it's just nice to know I may not be the only one feeling this way.

    Why must food be such an issue? I love feeling skinny....and I love the healthy foods....why must we push the limits with how much and how often we eat? I'm not sure if my brain knows what really hungry is..

    And Yes I am worried about being a weight loss failure AGAIN...I've lost the same 50 pounds 10 times only to gain it back and then some.

    I totally agree....this protocol works and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Hand me my sunglasses please.

    Thank you girls....I'm feeling much better.
