I'm ready to throw in the towel. Long...sorry

This is so flipping frustrating!! I was so close to my goal before the holidays. I only needed about 7 pounds to go. Finally less than 10 freakin pounds!!!

Well, after being away from home for only 10 days (we went to visit family out of state) I gained 6 pounds. So now I'm 13 freaking pounds away from my goal. 13 FREAKING POUNDS!!!! We've been home since the 1st, I said to myself, " it's okay because I did over eat a little, it's probably mostly just bloating. I'm not used to eating all that food anymore. I just need to get back to what I was doing before, it will be fine.". Here it is, 20 days later and I've only lost 1 stupid flipping pound! How is this possible?? No, I wasn't expecting to be what I was when we left, but I WAS hoping to have lost more than 1 stupid pound.

As soon as we got home I went right back to eating the way I was before going out of town. Shouldn't that alone have helped in some way?? No, I haven't been working out everyday since we've been home, but I also wasn't working out every single day before either.

It's so hard to stay positive after this. I was only 3 pounds away from finally being out of the 140's. I was so proud of myself, especially since it took me over 2 months to get out of the 150's. Now I'm 3 pounds away from being back into the 150's.

I feel like I'm meant to just be fat for the rest of my life. I can't motivate myself to do anything right now. I tried to get back into doing Insanity today, but I couldn't even get my self to "jog it out" when the video first started!

I hate that I've let myself get this way. I'm just really hating myself right now.

You can do this, mama.  Get out of the house and go for a walk or run to clear your head.  Clean up your food intake, take a deep breath, and just move forward.  YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!

Oh Jennifer, try not to stress about it so much. I think the stress alone of losing weight can sometimes hinder you. You've done such a great job losing weight and getting healthy, you should be proud. Weight fluctuates, things like this will happen. Just keep doing what you know how to do and it will come off. I'm right there with you though, been stuck at 145 for about a month now. I think the closer we get to our ideal weight the harder we have to work to get the last few pounds off. Just don't give up :)

Stay calm. You CAN do it. It doesnt take long to gain, but it takes a little while to lose it. Just get back into working out at least 3 days out of the week and walk/jog/run 4 days a week (if you dont have time to do exercises everyday or something). It will take you some time. It is taking me some time to lose too. Just set your mind to it. Think of how great you will look and how much better you will feel after you lose this weight! =)

Thanks ladies. I know I can do it. It's just hard to get that motivation back right now.

Don't hate yourself!  It's harder to take care of yourself if you don't love what you're taking care of.  You can do it.  =)

I think that would really help. DH tries to get me motivated and tries to keep me going, but it's just not the same.

Quoting chrisnjoesmom:
