Living at Goal weight



Recommended Posts

I'd really like to hear from more people at goal weight. I'm finding it so much harder just to accept and be in maintainence than it was to be losing.

Losing happened so quickly for me and before I new it I was at goal. I'm still not even sure if I'm at goal- keep wanting to lose a bit more. I look at my body and think yes I'm very thin but then there are spot areas that I feel like more could come off of.

I worry every day about gaining and when I do eat I feel "fat head", just heavy and fat even though I know I'm not. I track my calories every day and I really don't like coming in at maintainence even though it seems even at that I'm still losing.

This is a real challenge for me. I'm so worried about weight regain, and even more that mental feeling of having my weight and eating be out of control.

At the same time I still struggle with pain when I eat and that gets tiring.

This is why this journey is not easy. It's hard to begin it, it can be hard losing, and it's really hard at goal. It's a lifelong thing. I just hope some day to feel safe and comfortable and to find a routine and steady maintainece.

It's really hard. I'm 2 years post op and have gained back weight. Try to stay focused on healthy eating and not overeating. The creep is real and it's much harder to take it off the second time around (at least for me).

I hope you find a happy spot, I am close to NUT goal and struggling with the last 7-10 pounds and I am 11 months out

Maintaining for some people is easier for some and hard for others. It's hard for me. I have to watch what I eat very carefully or I will gain weight back.

I also have to exercise or I gain as well.

Update: I found intuitive eating and am now living happily at goal without dieting or much thought in regards to food at all.

      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".
