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!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
