Broken and Frustrated

I thought I was squeaking by when it comes to my weight–holding steady. Hmmm, guess not. I stepped on the scale this morning and I’m up three pounds from last week. Here I thought I was managing well enough these past few months without consistent exercise due to injuries. Add in the fact that I’ve been a little more lax than I should be with my eating (didn’t gain over the holidays!) but I haven’t reverted back to my old food habits exactly either.

I’m so upset that I feel (and to a point am) broken in so many areas of my body right now, then there’s this news. It’s exhausting. I’ve been in a constant battle with my body for awhile now. Either I was battling with issues I can’t see (cholesterol levels) or visible weight gain, it’s always something.

I know my struggle to lose weight wouldn’t be easy, but it’s exhausting and frustrating!

Still, I’m not throwing in the towel. I logged into My Fitness Pal this morning and entered my breakfast. Are you on My Fitness Pal? If you are, are we friends over there? If not, I’d love to follow your progress! You’ll find me under FitCurlysue in that part of the internet.

Just like I posted yesterday, I’m gonna make this happen.


  1. I know how you are feeling. I too have not been able to exercise like I should due to projects at work forcing me to go in early. There are also financial, school and home issues that are taking a toll on me mentally which really works against you when trying to lose weight. My blog posting has stopped because of it and that has me bummed as well. I know what I need to do but it has taken a back seat to other issues. It sucks. 2014 started with such promise – like most years do – but after the first month things haven’t gone the way I’d hoped. Sometimes the here and now has to be dealt with and gotten through so you can move on. Focus on the problems that are now. Don’t worry about what is tomorrow. Prioritize what is most important, focus on it, accomplish it, then move on to the next issue. Take baby steps if you have to get things done. The important thing is to keep moving forward. Don’t get bogged down in feeling sorry for yourself. Trust me, that never works.

    You and I will get through this and we will come out on the other side stronger then when we started.

  2. Seriously – so with you Sara!

    I’ve been tracking my foods, getting in my 10k plus steps a day & the scale is not budging. Yet I have friends that are losing up to 3lbs a week.

    Just keep trucking along…this all has to catch up sooner or later. I just hope sooner so I don’t lose steam.

  3. I can’t tell you how much I relate to you on this.

    I lost over 100 pounds from the end of 2008 through 2009. I kept it off until January of last year, 2013. I gained nearly 30 pounds throughout the year because of some medical issues I went through, then the emotional stress after. By the beginning of November, I could not believe how much I had gained. I had no idea I had gotten that bad. I felt like giving up and just never caring about fitness again because “what was the point? I have let myself go”. But I didn’t. I just remembered that everyday is a new day and a new opportunity to get it right. Every second of our live is a second to make a good, healthy decision. On November 25th 2013 I started a new journey, and I am now down 28 pounds.

    If I can bounce back anyone can. You can knock that measly 3 pounds off in no time. Keep blogging and networking – that really helps me keep motivated.

    I’m rooting for you!! xoxo
