Weight goal keeps dropping



Recommended Posts

My weight goal keeps moving down. When is enough enough!

I am addicted to seeing the scale continue to drop and I can't seem to reach a point I feel okay with maintaining.

I'm 5'6 at 125.

Anyone else dealing with this?post-235696-14386633290792_thumb.jpg

As long as you protect your health and vitality, you can shoot for any weight that makes you feel good. Listen to your body (and your doctor).

Ps. You look fabulous.

I'm not trying to rub anything in. I'm struggling hugely with this. I am becoming basically anorexic on top of having a stricture that makes me vomit all day I cant mentally deal with stopping my weight loss.

I'm now at 123 pounds and I'm officially under the weight my doctor wants me at (135) and if I keep losing past 115 I'll be in dangerous territory if I'm not already.

I have extreme anxiety about gaining weight and I don't feel comfortable except seeing the scale move downward and my weight goal just keeps dropping. I know I have to end this and maintain but it feels so scary and overwhelming to eat.

I was hoping someone else on here could relate to what I'm going through. There is such a thing as losing too much weight. I'm beginning to look sickly.

What are you afraid of??

Dont be afraid to eat, you have a tool now

If you gain you know the way back, just stop there and start to maintain like you doctor adviced you before you became sick and regret being anything but healthy.

Good luck.

You look perfect. Trust us when we say that! I know it is hard to see what others see. We are our own worst critics. You've done a fantastic job. If you are experiencing anxiety please speak with a psychologist about it. Hugs

I'm sure there are many struggling with the same thing you are. Talk to your doctor, find some help, get some therapy.

Something all of us struggle with is loving ourselves for who we are, and that struggle doesn't go away with the weight loss.

You look wonderful, for what it's worth!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
