How Do I Get Past Self Sabatoge?

How Do I Get Past Self Sabatoge?

Why do I never let myself suceed at weightloss? I feel so hopeless, my whole life I've been obese, now doctors are calling it super obese. I am a short person of 5' and 250lbs. I want to succeed so badly, because my pain level is so high, it"s hard to walk due to back pain and foot problems , all I do is cry wanting to help myself but I never suceed.

Hi. I’m sorry that you’re in pain.. I do know that when I was that heavy( 264 heaviest) my knees hurt like hades.. but then I got rid of a 180 lb problem( ex) and got angry at myself for eating myself there. So today I am holding at 189 and I’m happy with myself. I eat healthier and do a Pahla B Fitness workout on YouTube daily( 5-6 days) I don’t drink as much water as I should but I’m eating WAAY better. Hope this helps.

Thank you, I am working with accountability group. Same as you, small goals. I also saw many therapists with no success. I also started journaling to get to why I comfort myself with food. Thanks so much for your reply🐱

I have a Life Coach . We talk weekly and set small goals and reassess weekly. I’ve seen many therapists over the years , with little success. This is helpful for me to see my goals in front of me.

Self Sabotage is so hard to deal with and can be based in so many things - past, emotional makeup, environment, etc. I don't know if you have tried therapy to help you understand why you do what you do to yourself, but it might help. I did therapy for many years to try and help me accept and love myself. It doesn't fix anything but can provide tools for you to work with. Also developing and saying a list of positive affirmations daily or even multiple times a day can help. Also journaling about what was/is going on when the self sabotage takes place. I've had to go back to all these things as I have come to realize I have an eating addiction so working on self care and love has become a priority. Good luck!
