God I just want to smack myself so hard. I just can't keep my fucking weight down!!!!!!! I don't know what else to do. I wish I could just go a bunch of drugs, but nooo I'm a mommy now. He doesn't even deserve me! I'm just a fat piece of shit. I don't even do anything right. I wanted to EBF, failed. I wanted to lose the baby weight. Failed. I wanted to be happy and teach my son self love. Failing. I should just give up. Ya ya this is like my 3 rd post crying about how much I hate myself. I don't care. No one else listens so at least I can get it out. I'm just gonna be a miserable fat cow the rest of my life. Just like my dad said I would be.

It takes time to lose the weight mama... I have been on a diet for 2 months now and am getting annoyed at how long it is taking... but i figure it took a while to put it on, it's going to take a while to lose it. Just keep trying, don't give up. If you need a weight loss buddy, I am here lol.

I just don't know what I have to do to change. I wish someone could just help me or fix me.

I have been dieting, ex for breakfast ill have fruit and 1 egg with 2 bottles of water. Then workout for 30 minutes. Then lunch a salad with spinach, almonds, dried cranberries and red wine dressing. Then yogurt or a granola bar for a snack. Then dinner I've been doing a small piece of chicken, carrots, asparagus or squash, and another small salad with more water. And even some days another work out. I've lost 5 lbs then gained it back. Lost 10 then gained 5. I just don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Exercises: I have been doing the 30 day squat challenge, 175 crunches a day, taking a walk everyday with the kids, 50 push ups a day and that's about it. Not much but enough to burn off the calories. Also, I have cut my calorie intake to 1200 a day.. No sodas, juices, junk, etc. I can see a difference, not as much as I want but i still see it. Only lost about 10 pounds in 2 months but it's something. I would have thought it would have been more by how hard i've been trying. It just sucks how long it takes to lose weight!!

Not eating enough calories can cause you to gain weight. How many calories are you eating?

I gained 65 lbs with my first pregnancy. I weight 174 when I got pregnant, the day I went to the hospital I was 239! It took me every bit of two years to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight.
I then got pregnant again and gained 40 lbs. It took me a full year to lose that weight. I am now 162 lbs-my goal weight was 165.
I took a lot of work and determination . A lot!
I was so unhappy with myself, I felt sorry for my husband because I felt so unattrative that I didn't even want to be intiment-I was miserable with myself. I hated looking in the mirror, going out in public, pretty much everything. Every muscle and bone hurt so bad because of all the weight I had gained that I had a hard time taking care of my LO. Getting down on the floor to play with her was damn near impossible. When my LO was 4 months old my nephew(granted I hadn't seem him in over a yr)asked me if I was wearing a fat suit when he saw me on Halloween. I laughed it off but was dying in the inside, I literally had to suck back my tears.
I finally had had enough. I started working out every day for at least 30 mins-running on a treadmill and completely cut soda out and retrained my brain on the right portion size.
I'm not completely satisfied with my post baby(s) body but I have come to terms that I'll never look like I did before kids.
You can do it!

Since October? Have you been on a diet since then or have you been stopping then restarting? Sometimes it just takes longer on some people. Have you thought about joining a gym? If I had the time or money I would so do that.

I will listen if you need me to, and I will only give advice if asked. I've been struggling myself this week, depression keeps wanting to come back, and I am overweight too. I'm hoping the container garden I am planting will help me to eat healthier.
