Todays meal

Breakfast - omelet with shredded cheese and five pieces of turkey bacon
Lunch - two hamburgers topped with cheddar cheese, and some creamed broccoli on the side
Dinner - homemade chicken nuggets breaded with crushed pork rinds, and creamed broccoli on the side, hot sauce and ranch dipping sauce. See pic below

Added a pic of the nuggets so you guys can see how they look individually. They are sooooo good! The pork rind breading is so crispy and perfect.

Thanks! I'm doing okay. Hanging in there. Been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately though. Like I feel like there just isn't enough time in a day ya know? My boyfriends mom came out of knee surgery last week and she is in rehabilitation now so we have been going up there and visiting her often. Things are getting a bit stressful around here but I will manage. I'm sticking to plan although I'm sure I have been eating a lot more calories than I should be, while still staying within my carb limits. Cheese has been my best friend these past couple of days! Lol. Baby steps.

Hey everyone. I haven't posted in a while. At one point I felt too guilty to even show my face back on here, because I went back to the way that I was. I started eating bad again and became severely depressed. I gave up ..yet again... I feel like such a failure. How many times am I going to go through this? Why cant I control myself when it comes to food? Especially knowing how much being morbidly obese is hurting me, physically and emotionally, why do I continue to put myself through this crap? I feel like my whole life is one big joke. I feel like I am being punished. This addiction...this life.... I feel so weak. I feel so ashamed..I feel like I am trapped inside of my own body. I don't know what it will take for me to change.

I do know that coming here made me feel something I never felt before. Coming here made me feel like someone actually cared. I use to think that all people were the same. I see that is not true. There are people that do care and there are people that feel the way that I do..people that suffer with problems pertaining to food like me. It was a mistake to ever stop writing. I need this place. I believe that this place needs to be a big part of my journey. When I get down and depressed this is where I should be, not in my room stuffing my face. Sometimes I just feel like people have their own problems and they don't need to be bothered with mines. But everyone needs someone. That is what this site is here for, to help and support each other on this not so easy journey. Having people there for you just makes this a little more easier and Being held accountable can give you that small boost of motivation that you need to make big things happen. This is where I should be. This needs to be apart of my focus. It is so easy to go astray . I might get on the right track and then mess up and feel like I have given up on everything, I may say F it and tell myself in my head that this is how my life is just meant to be and nothing will change that, but I know in my heart that I can do this . I haven't lost hope yet even after all of the failed attempts . There is still something in me that believes in myself, even at times when it feels like I hate myself, no matter how many times I fail I will never truly give up.

So happy you came back. I think of you often. Of course we care.. we may have never met, but we are all in the same boat of trying to figure out what will work for us.. NEVER feel alone..

Just do your best hour by hour, day by day to improve your health. It sounds cliche, but honestly one step at a time is the only way to get there. YOU KNOW what works for you, don't doubt your abilities. You can do this dear Roszina. You are a beautiful soul, and a beautiful girl.. REMEMBER THAT.

Please do check in daily or as often as you can, because we are here to help and encourage you. We ALL have something to work on, trust me!!!!

Make today that day...

Your post hits right at home. I'm glad you know we are all here to help, care and understand what you're going through. I believe too that most of us come here because it's not that we don't know how to lose weight (most have tried a gazillion diets and they work), it's the emotional and mental component that really is the true struggle. I was watching the first episode of Biggest Loser the other day and I became teary-eyed because I could relate to a couple of the contestants crying and saying how hard it is to let stuff go..the baggage and 'cover' that excess weight gives us...the emotional eating that has become our friend when we feel no one else is there. The biggest challenge is taking the slip-ups that happens, accepting this is part of our journey, that we're not imperfect, and instead to keep fighting. I don't want you to feel ashamed or alone about what you're going through...oh how many times I've thought of just asking the mods to delete my journal because of years of going up and down the same pounds and I sometimes become ashamed that others are reading this. However I remember that it shows what's real for most of us...the up and downs of this journey. I'm so glad you came back and hopefully will stay. I too have found that coming here gives me some accountability (I certainly don't talk weight, diet to people IRL every day) and I tend to lose weight better when I post.

"There is still something in me that believes in myself, even at times when it feels like I hate myself, no matter how many times I fail I will never truly give up." Keep your statement close and near...this is your inner strength, fighting, knowing that you have it in you to succeed.

You are so right. That is definitely where I mess up the most, I find it hard to get back on track when I stumble. I feel like since I fell that I need to remain down. That simply isn't true. We all make mistakes and we just need to pick ourselves up and get right back on track so we don't lose total sight of our goals. Like I said before, I have fell off the wagon before and stayed off for over a year. I don't ever want that to happen again. I wont allow it to happen again. Thank you for being here for me Jeannie

Thanks Shari! Nice to see you again. It really is the emotional and mental component that is the real struggle. If it wasn't I would probably be thin already lol. I know physically what I need to do in order to lose the weight but emotionally ,sheesh, that is another story. It is really about losing this mindset , for me at least , that I need food to fill the void. I don't. The baggage that you speak of, I know it all too well. I carry it with me everyday.
In a sense I guess I need to let go of a lot of things emotionally before I can truly let go physically. I have lost some weight before but gained it all back plus more. I didn't work on what was really eating at me inside, Why I use food as a crutch in the first place.
I know exactly how you feel about the journal and feeling ashamed at times and not wanting anyone to keep seeing the struggle . Wanting the mods to delete it because we feel like we have failed .That is just a momentary lapse in judgement lol. We know that this helps us. We are in this together. We are fighters of the same struggle and we all know how it feels to have food have this hold over us at times. Just like you said it shows what is real. It shows the good the bad and the ugly. This journey will not be easy in the slightest . It will be the hardest thing that most of us has ever had to do. We will fall down . Everyone does. but I wont be ashamed anymore. Thanks for encouraging me Shari. I hope that I can be as helpful to you in your journey as you are in mines.

They all posted what I would post. I've been on this site for 10 yrs now and I lose and gain...there are times when I stay away but this place makes the struggle easier. ESP when you find a great group of friends to vent to. I'm on this journey again with a 150 lbs to lose, I hit goal once and I will hit it again! Keep your head up, YOU CAN DO THIS! Believe in you!
