What do you do when you feel like just giving up? #WAMJourney

Seriously, because that’s where I’m at right now. I don’t want to give up, but I’m feeling like I should just throw in the towel and forget about it.

I have a goal, I want to finally reach that goal, but it’s hard to see a light at the end of the tunnel when you’re not moving forwards, but rather backwards.

I’ve been doing well, staying within my Macros for my food, exercising at least 5 times a week, sometimes twice a day. I’m listening to my trainer, but I’m just not seeing results. I was, don’t get me wrong, but this week has me discouraged more than most.

While I was on vacation, I measured, didn’t see the measurements I was hoping for, in fact, they went up rather than down. We were stuck in Arizona because of that whole Southwest Airlines debacle, so I ended up having to weigh myself during vacation as well, on a scale, that wasn’t mine. Scary in itself, but, according to that scale, I had lost 7lbs. I was HAPPY! Super HAPPY! Knowing in the back of my mind, that yes, it could be wrong, but I was rolling with it. Heck, I even WORKED OUT while on vacation! Stayed within my food, everything. The only thing I struggled on was water..


Next week was measurements, and they were good. I wasn’t happy with them once again, but big surprise. I’m working SO HARD on this, I want to see better results faster. But alas, the boss (my trainer) said I was right on track and doing awesome. So, happy with the results I will be. Here’s the latest progress….


This week though, this week, I feel down, I feel discouraged, I feel like giving up. I don’t know if it’s PMS or what…But, I keep thinking, what is the point in working so hard for this, when I gain weight?!?!?! Bootcamp 2-3 times a week, gym at least 3 times a week, and like I said, sometimes twice a day. My food, probably could be better, but I’m still working on it, I’m eating what I’m supposed to be eating, I’m staying within my macros, I’m drinking my water. What more can I do? Maybe I’m just determined to be fat, ugly and unmotivated. Maybe I should give up.

This week I got a new scale to do a review on, which will be coming up soon, because I am NOT happy with the scale. It made me cry, yes the scale made me cry. It was 10lbs over what I last weighed myself as. 10 lbs in 2 weeks? REALLY?!?!?! So, I took out my old, usual scale that I normally weigh myself on. Yup, still up, 4 lbs. What the HELL is going on?????? PMS? I’m just a fatty fat fat? I see my trainer this afternoon, and I don’t even want to give him the news that I’ve apparently gained 4lbs in 2 weeks, sure it’s better than gaining 10, but I shouldn’t be gaining anything!!! And no, it’s not muscle, that’s entirely impossible to gain 4lbs of muscle in 2 weeks….


I’m discouraged and I don’t know what to do…..run, hide, give up? My new mantra is supposed to be Never Give Up, but right now, that’s the hardest thing in the world NOT to do…..  I keep trying to tell myself it’s not all about the numbers on the scale, and it really isn’t, and my trainer has told me a million times I’ll see ups and downs, but for whatever reason, this really has ME down…

    Thank you so much for the raw truth of how you are feeling. This is so very normal Gina. I feel this way too sometimes.. usually if it’s that time of the month, or if I haven’t gotten enough sleep. This isn’t something that goes away… it’s something that you need to push through… to show yourself how strong and persistent you’ve grown. you have made huge improvements… nonscale victories! I recommend keeping a pad by your bed and before you go to sleep each night writing 3 ways that you won the day. Or write them in your blog! We would love to read them!

    Thank you Betty! It does mean a lot coming from you! The pad sounds like a good idea, maybe a new weekly post after I jot them all down, I recently purchased a new writing pad that says on the front “I Can And I Will”, perfect idea to use it for. Thank You!

    Don’t give up! This is only a little setback. I know it seems like you’re not making progress but every time you get up and exercise is another time you did something. I’m so proud of you for making the effort.
