Day 111 - Overwhelmed

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I'm overwhelmed... by your kindness and support, that is. After reading my last post, your encouragement and advice poured in, and I just want you all to know that I am extremely grateful for the many caring thoughts that you shared with me. I truly appreciate every word that was written. Thank you so much.

I am going to get out of this rut. I know I am. And implementing much of your advice is going to be instrumental in that process. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

You can do this baby! I know you can.
We're all on the same road and we have the same goal. It's very comforting to know that and I hope it helps you too! hugz

I'm so sorry you are struggling and I'm so sorry I haven't been around much (((HUGS)))

I understand what its like to be so far from home. When I moved to the UK after I got married I was in a new town, surrounded by his relatives who hated me and tried to sabotage our marriage, I had to learn to drive on the wrong side of the road, I didn't know where I was going, I feared getting lost when I went somewhere. I left a place I called home for over 15 years, a job of 15 years and my Mom had just died...so yes, I do know a little bit about what you are going through. When you said about the anniversary of your Dads death, I just cried with you because I went through the same thing.

I'm stuck at home a lot too...even more now that Ken started working and takes our only vehicle to work every day so I understand about the isolation.

I'm also struggling with my plan. I've managed to more or less maintain and I'm hoping to do that through New Years. I've agreed to start a South Beachish type diet with one of my friends and if you'd like to join us, all the better! Its easy to follow and so many people have had success with it. Email me any time. We can get through this together.

I missed your post yesterday but read it today and I am sorry to hear that you are finding it hard right now, sounds like you have been through a huge change in your life. The only thing I can say is that if you're not hungry than food won't fix the problem. That is really hard to swallow as food has become our replacment for so many things, or we wouldn't be over weight - food is great company and a best friend! I have so been there, however, I will tell you that losing weight opens so many other doors, you can't even imagine and that will change your life, inspire you to enjoy the sourroundings you are now living in. Have you ever thought of joining Weight Watchers or a gym to meet some people who have same goals in their life, a sort of support system to help you along? The blog world is great for extra support but may not be enough to keep you going, I think finding a real friend to share this with would be beneficial.

I wish you the best of success, remember it's a long journey of self discovery filled with ups and down, happy to hear you are not giving up. Even after a year of losing, I still have my moments, but thankfully they are less and less as my new habits usually win out!!

I should have left a note on yesterdays entry but there was so many i didnt want to think this post also wasnt important :D

kudu's for you for putting yourself out there and letting people kow where youve come from and why its a constant struggle to be happy.

youve been given so much advice but all im going to say is talk to your beautiful husband and share you burdens, fears, everything. remember a problem shared is a problem halved, he sounds like the type that would hate you to be feeling this way.

chin up babe, life is long, tomorrow is another day.

I've been pretty busy with work and midterms, so I've been slacking on reading blogs and commenting... But no matter what, I want to wish you good luck for all of this, and I hope that, as you say, you'll get out of this rut very soon. I've been struggling myself with bingeing on week-ends, then spending the week losing the weight again, and it's really crappy and frustrating. (Not to mention the part about being stranded in a place that isn't really 'home' to you. It's not the case for me at the moment, but it was a few years ago, I was pretty miserable, and was it a wonder that it's during that period that I reached my highest weight? Hm.)

Anyway, as we say in my Japanese class, ganbatte (hang on). :)
