Why Can’t I Lose Weight? – Writers Workshop

Why Can't I Lose Weight

This week for the writer’s workshop I am going to be talking about a few reasons why I can’t lose weight. I know there a ton of reasons, but these are the ones that came to my mind first when I was writing this post. I also am well aware of what I am doing will cause me to gain weight or just make is so I can’t lose weight.

I had lost a ton of weight about six years or so ago, but I started a medication that made me put on tons of weight in a short period, and I haven’t lost all of it. Even though at times I have tried harder than other times I can’t see to get the weight off again. Here are a few reasons why I can’t lose weight.

  1. The first one is because I refuse to stop drinking Dr. Pepper. I have had to cut out so many other things out of my diet because of allergies or because of sensitivities to things like gluten. I know I would lose weight if I could do it out, but there is no way that will ever cut it out.
  2. The next reason is that I enjoy eating chips and fried foods. I love salty foods, and I would eat them for every meal if I could get away with it.
  3. Another is that I don’t work out, and I have the desire to start. I always say I can’t work out because of the Multiple Sclerosis, but it is just because I am lazy, and I don’t want to.
  4. I also know that I would lose weight if I had another job where I wasn’t sitting at a desk all day long and rarely leaving my desk. I used to help out in the warehouse when I was bored but because of the job I am training to do I am pretty much stuck at my desk all day.
  5. I also just sit around and watch tv on the weekends or read a book. For example, on Sunday I am lucky if I get over two thousand steps in. Most Sundays I only get about fifteen hundred steps. I know if I were more active I would lose weight. It also gets hard for me to do things because my sleep is terrible so by the time I get off work it is all I can do to go home take a bath and go to bed.

Those are five things that I know if I changed I would lose weight but as you can see I am not highly motivated to do any of them.

What is one reason you aren’t losing weight?

NES & Weight Check In

I haven’t done an update post on my eating disorder in a few weeks and I figured that I would post an update.  I haven’t been doing to well with the whole not eating at night.  I try but I haven’t been working on it to much.  Right now I know I will be beat it but I am just not dealing with it.  This time of year is hard for me because of my daughters birthday and mothers day.  I know once I get past her birthday that I will get back on the band wagon and beat it once and for all.

As for my weight loss lets just say I am pretty much the same weight I was before.  I really need to start walking again after work.  I have gotten lazy but I will get back on the wagon with this as well.  I hate that the MS makes me so tired and sick all the time.  If I didn’t have MS I would be active and out living my life instead sitting in the house because I am sick.  Oh well that isn’t important.  I am going to get my ass in gear and start walking again!

NES Check In

It has been a few weeks since I have done an update on my eating disorder.  For the most part i have done okay.  For some reason though Saturday nights are super bad for me.  I always end up eating all night long.  It is better than when I used to do it all night long every night but it is still frustrating that I can’t stop doing it.  I hope in time that I will be able to beat this disease. 

I was going to update how my weight loss is going but I can tell you that I haven’t done well with my diet and losing weight these past few weeks.  I am going to start either walking at night or doing a work out dvd each night.  I am think since it is nice out there most night that I am going to either go walk on the river like I used to or I am going to walk the route I used to walk in the neighborhood. 

That is all I have for today!  I hope everyone has had a great Easter!



NES & Weight Check In

Well I am another week down and I have done really well this week when it comes to not eating all night long.  I am writing this on Saturday and Saturday nights are usually the bad nights but I am going to try and take a sleeping pill and go to bed so that I am not up all night eating.  I am coming far from where I used to be with this and I know I am getting passed it.

I have decided that I am going to start doing updates as I try and loss weight.  Here is a picture of what the scale said when I was got on it this morning.  I am going to use this as my starting weight.

If you can’t see it is says 184.  I am trying to get to about 135 or so.  I know this is going to be a long road but I can and will do it.  I am doing the Slim Fast diet for the most part.  I am drinking the shakes and not eating much crap anymore.   I still have my days where I eat like crap but for the most part I am doing really well.

Until next week!  Hope you have a great weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!
