What The Hell Man



Recommended Posts

Well I have the annoying feeling many times of feeling hungry— as in “omg, I’m gonna die if I don’t eat something soon” hungry— only to eat 3-4 bites (slowly and with intent) and feel as if I just had thanksgiving dinner. Rinse,wash,and repeat 3-4 times more in the day.

Then other days I forget to eat until 2-3 pm with zero hunger urges, but find I can eat over a cup of food and feeling like I could hold more if I tried (always too scared to try though).

I’m pretty sure that if you compared the amount of food I’m taking in between those 2 types of days, the cumulative amount is probably the same. I have no idea why my body/head sends different signals like that.

I had a colleague years ago that had bypass surgery and this is what she used to say: Thanks for your concern, my doctor says I’m healthy - and I also want to thank you for acting like you never even noticed my weight when I was fat. That was very kind and it would be great if you would be just as kind now and continue acting like you don’t notice - and then she would walk away or change the subject.
I wish we hadn’t lost touch. I’d love to have her as a mentor now!

Really good thread and input from everyone.

My coworkers know I am intentionally losing weight but not about the surgery, so they are supportive. Only one person, my nice manicurist, quietly asked if my health was OK. I think it’s more normalized for women to constantly be dieting or trying to lose weight than men.
