Am so tired of people who ask every ten minutes why they're not losing weight



Recommended Posts

I know...I know....we've all been there. And it's important to be patient with newer folks and to be empathetic to their frustration.

I'm so wrong for this....but I just want to smack the **** out of them. Which would not be helpful.

I'm sort of re-evaluating the value of habitually reading this board.

It's all starting to loop around and around in this anxious cycle of angsty mental health issue driven repetitive slurry.

I'm starting to identify these stereotypes of posters that repeat over and over....

The Bird....I will not eat over 500 calories because calories are bad.

The Protein Addict....Must never eat carbs again or the world will explode.

The Why Me Whiner....Where's my yellow brick road, Dr. Nowzaradin?

The Documentarian.... Ate one and three quarters blueberries this morning for a total of 4.37687calories.

The Rebel without a Clue.....I ate a whole pizza yesterday just to see if I could cram one in there. I could! I want my money back!

The Pain in the Ass angsty Know It All.....who writes offensive insensitive rants like this one.

The Research Junkie.....sort of like the pain in the ass angsty know it all...but with more links.

The Fat Shamer.....let me endlessly describe how much I hated my fat, and by extension how offputting I find other fat people

The Size Queen.....Can I slip my new pants size into casual conversation?

The Oblivious Question Asker.....Um, I'm two weeks out, can I have chicken McNuggets and a large coke and fries yet?

The Lonely Soul.....Hi, We should be besties. I'm going to write 9/10 posts about how cool I think you are.

The Stuck Veteran....I lost weight ages ago and kept it off, but I still obsess about weight loss daily.

The Message Board Christian.....Lets slip Christ in there, just for the hell of it. Pray for me!

Maybe I just have a shitty attitude today. I'm bored. I'm tired of thinking about weight.

I'm glad I had surgery. A few bumps in the road, but I'm doing really well all things considered. I'm committed to following through.

But I'm so freaking tired of thinking about this.....and having it consume so much of my life.

And equally scared of not being vigilant.

Just kinda....ornery. Sorry.

Wow I wonder which of those I will be? [emoji23] it's just like friends on Facebook. I have several of each of those types on my Facebook, anyway. Maybe it is time to take a break from the forum! I can recommend some good book series to you if you like to read!

Ha! :lol: I can check-off as identifying with several of your stereotypes. :blush: The good news is that my mal-adjusted, square peg personality isn't blown away and surprised at this. I've been trying to overcome "me" since I was a little girl.

Why not get off the boards and go do something fun in real life? :D Might give you a little lift? ((hugs))

You forgot the PCOSers, they've popped up a lot recently. At least you don't hear from ladies who've had hysterectomies complaining their scar constantly itched. Or guys with vasectomy scars b*******. Maybe I'm bored , I have a case of whyme-itis going on in my life. Life meh.

I hear you! I mean, I know my surgical team didn't mention stalls, but sheesh, people, read the boards for a while before you start posting how you've gone three days without losing weight and it's only been three weeks since your surgery! Or there's the "I've only lost 60 pounds in six months, what's wrong with me?"

Relax, people. Take a breath.

Creekimp, love the Dr Now line. I usually only read posts during my lunch hour and your post gave me a good laugh! Thanks for brightening my Monday

Let's see you forgot the:

"What type of surgery should I have?" peeps

The "How soon can I start drinking again?" booze hounds

The "I posted a question and it's been three minutes and nobody replied so I'm going to post it in 26 other sub-forums."

The "I've weighed myself 349,821 times today and gained 6 ounces!" scale addicts.

The "Halp Im not lozing wait" title with aboslutely no info about their diet in the body of the post.

:lol:

And before somebody's feels get hurt this is all in good fun. We've all made retarded posts on here so have a laugh.

And my all time biggest gripe with forums: all the others that have no idea how a search button works, because really, no one else in the history of WLS has ever had a stall. Seriously. You're the only one ever so please post about it endlessly. Or any other question you have because there is simply no way in hell a board with 68 trillion posts could possibly have had a similar question as you.

This is an oldie but goodie:

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

        Drink a protein drink right after your workout, or get more fluids - dizziness can be from dehydration. Push liquids at all times. Good luck.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.
