    Hi Native hang in there I too have days like that. After we talked in chat last night maybe life is just kicking you in the butt some, you need to kick back and hard!!!! I know you were down last night it will get better,and the scale will move in the down direction again

    Thank you all for the great words! It really means a lot. I decided yesterday that i was going to take a couple days off from phen, but today I feel better! I still haven't lost anything but yesterday must havebeen a fluke! I AM going to get that scale moving. I Don't care if it's just one more pound for a week. Again, thanks for the great words! ♥

    true it gets discouraging when the scale doesn't move or a certain piece of clothing doesn't fit the way it used to .. but look how far you've come ! you're doing great ! sometimes when i get frustrated i really just don't look at the scale and just try to look forward ..

    I usually feel that way one week before my beforemy period. I have negative self-loathing thoughts. It happens every month and it still takes me by suprise.

    I have been on phen for almost 8 weeks and I feel more even-keeled.

    I hope this passes quickly for you.

    I'm at that place now...I hate how my clothes fit, getting dressed every day is depressing......I'm in a rut, not gaining but not losing..just sort of stagnating...sometimes I ask myself why i bother taking phen if I"m not making any great strides but I keep hoping that it will happen.....

    All i can say is hang in there, we all have our days.....

    I have definitely had those days. You are very beautiful and you are seeing great success, so try to focus on your accomplishment! On days when I feel like that, I do an extra tough workout and usually feel great after, in addition, the scale usually shows favorably the day following. Keep it up and know you are working hard and going in the right direction!:eatnphen1:
    As you think, so shall you be...

    Snap out of it girly!! I have learned (the hard way) that weight loss is a very hilly road. Sometimes your up and sometimes your down. Stop your phen for a few days... give yourself a break to lay in bed and quit beating yourself up for being normal!! We all want to just stop and lay around for a few days, let your body tell you what you need and listen to it. It's so much better to give yourself the time off your body and mind crave than to try to keep pushing and end up burned out for even longer. It's kinda like a cold, you take care of it early, it goes away, you keep pushing and you end up with a month long cold.

    What you are seeing is an emotional illusion. You are doing fine and you will be fine. Just know that you do not have to accept what the mirror says! You are beautiful!

    How many mg are you on? Maybe you should go down to 15 or 30. Hope you feel better.

    Default not doing so well today

    I don't know what it is but I feel really down today. I looked in the mirror and almost cried, my shirts feel tight but I haven't gained any weight. I haven't been on this sight in awhile. i always come here when i need encouragement. I'm just wondering if anyone has these kinds of days.
    hopefully it passes. Also,maybe its because I'm stuck at a plateau. idk. I just want to go to bed for a couple days but phen doesn't let me!
