August Sleevers-How are you doing??



Recommended Posts

Hey! I’m on holiday! Just took some long haul flights from Australia to USA. Losing weight is like giving yourself a free flight upgrade! No seat belt extender, extra room, not having your butt wedged against the arm rest. So much more comfortable! I could have wept with happiness!

Today is my weekly weigh in and I finally broke my 3 week stall and lost 4.4lb! I'm now the lowest I've been in my entire adult life. I haven't been this weight since my husband and I were dating and I had anorexia. However, I still have some body issues with clothes. By habit (and because its snowing...still...here in Massachusetts...in April), I put on a sweater that was 1x and it looks like I'm wearing a trash bag.

When I was this weight (218 pounds) 35 years ago I was ashamed of myself and felt that I was huge! Now I’m down to this weight again after losing 88 pounds I feel fabulous And look great. How can I weight the same and look so different?

I too feel that way. I think it must have a lot to do with what we are putting in our bodies-we are so hyperaware now bc we have to be. I’m also working out with weights now and I think that has a lot to do with it. Congrats on a fabulous loss!!!

I'm hanging out on the east coast, NY, Washington, Philly.

I have been eating bread while on holiday and dealing with major guilt! I've walked so much every day so far- 23,000 steps so hopefully that will balance it all out!

I need to ask my August sleevers about their monthly cycles. Tried starting my own thread for help, but really didnt get the help i was hoping for. I am 46 years old and I have always had a normal monthly cycle, then in january i only spotted for a couple days and then poof nothing since. Now i did see a gynecologist yesterday who took blood, pap smear, and urine tests. But wont know results for awhile. Dont know if its because of menopause, or because of all the weight i have lost. Dr said it could be either one, just not sure about all of this. Would be nice not to deal with it anymore, but is the monthly going to come back? Has this happened to anyone else? Did i go thru menopause, and not even know it? Help!!!!

My cycle has been very different since my surgery - like the timing and heaviness has all been different. It's returning to usual now, but is still 26 days instead of 28. There are lots of hormonal changes with weight loss so I've just accepted it.

I would love to be comfortable on a flight! I'm totally jealous of my friend who can curl up in the seat and enjoy the ride. I'll settle for not feeling like I spill over into other seats.

No guilt! Celebrate that you can now eat just enough bread vs the entire loaf in one sitting. I know it’s easier said than done but allow yourself to sit down, chew the bread slowly and enjoy it. We are all still so stuck in this lifetime of “diet mentality” where we were always failing. I’m trying so hard to flip my mindset too. Celebrate how we are working towards a healthy relationship with food! I’m holding your hand through the whole thing! And way to go on the steps! Awesome!!!!

So i just got my tests results back from my Dr and she said i am post-menopause. Huh? At 46? Why didn't i even know? Apparently, some woman dont show any symptoms. I was one of the lucky ones i guess, really not sure how to feel about it. 🤔 now i know at least it didn't have anything to do with the weight loss.

I'm 8-10lbs from my goal weight and stalled out big time. Be stuck here for 2 months. Need to go see my dietitian for some advise. Otherwise I'm very happy with the results.

I have no advice, I'm on a 7 week stall. I still have plenty to go. :(
