Can't stop losing weight



Recommended Posts

I am also currently boobless. And to think my breasts used to be overflowing with breastmilk, so much so that I donated a lot of my milk to a milk bank at a local children's hospital.

I love that you donated your breast milk. So many babies benefit from your donation!

This is true. I checked also. Thing is i am so small. I have no boobs left! I have had to buy new cloths time after time and yes i do shop at Goodwill and consignment shops to save money.

People see me and ask me if I am sick even though I don't think I look sick at all.

I have had bloodwork done and all is well.

My sugar has been known to drop out of nowhere though.

Maybe i am worrying for nothing but I really don't wanna lose a pond more.

You will find your balance with all of this. It’s a strange thing to experience for yourself, Right?

I can relate to many of the post on how it messes with you when you hit goal. It took time for my mind to catch up and to see myself correctly.(body dysmorphia) It was something I had to work on.

Wow. I get it. I would never in my life expect to say the words I need to STOP losing weight. My inner obese woman. *smile* had a hard time wrapping my head around it.

People mean well, but comments like you look sick, your too thin, when are you going to stop losing weight. it's not helpful. It's hard enough for you to deal with rapid weight loss.

Some of us have reactive hypoglycemia as a slight complication after surgery. Talk with your Dr and get a glucose meter.

Trust the process, hon. It is a real trip! And agree with all, peoples' comments are more hindrance than help!

Here's the BMI chart. Sounds like you may be on the petite side of the curve rather than built like a rock with thick muscles and bones! So at 5'2" you're not even in the worry zone until you hit around 105lbs. So you have a lot of wiggle room. That last ten pounds usually slows down to a crawl if you eat your same meals.

I'd log your meals in faithfully every day (weigh and measure everything) so you can know a great baseline of how many calories and what macros you are eating daily. That's super duper important. You could be unintentionally over estimating how much you are eating.

As everyone said, look at increasing your cals with fats. Simply by adding a teaspoon of olive oil or butter or ghee adds 40 cals very quickly. Elcee's right, full fat dairy also adds up quickly without adding a lot of volume. Sour cream is easily stirred into things and ups cals quickly.

Here are some common ways to up your cals quickly. Adding a serving or two to a meal, will add to the nutritional value as well.

I see saggy skin....i am 50 but see a body of an 80 year old now. At least with cloths on. I wear a lot of athletic clothes. Hoodies, tshirts, leggings.

I need more weight training but working 12 hour days make it hard.

Give your body time to correct itself. Losing 112 pounds sounds about right to me. Rejoice.




I've lost over 130 pounds since June of 2018. We all lose at different rates. I still suffer from body dysphoria, though. Still see a fat person. Still shop for a fat person. Still wear large, baggy dresses that a fat person might wear. How about you?


I still see myself as fat even though I see bones I didn’t see before. I always end up buying clothes too big because I’m shocked at how small I’ve actually become. I have sharpei belly and excess skin so I should be smaller but I’ll save for a tummy tuck! Everyone says how amazing I look but I still feel like the 267 lb fat girl.

I totally get it. The body dysmorphia is real and normal. Sometimes I feel a little lost - like where did the "other me" go? Where is she? But she is here in a new funny looking body. It really does take a while for the brain to catch up with the physical changes. But nothing beats a size 10 over a size 24!!!! I am trying to learn how to embrace and value all my new sharpei wrinkles and folds. I think I look really old, but others say I look younger, so go figure. Maybe it is because I have a lot more pep in my step now - not dragging myself around on limping knees.

Hang in there. You will gradually morph from the 267 mentally fat girl into the little girl you really are and were really meant to be! You are a butterfly that has just emerged from the lumpy old cocoon. You have to give it time to let your wings dry!

You’re so sweet! I went to my first HIIT workout post bypass revision and shoulder repair. I wore tiny little booty shorts and would catch myself in the mirror and think damn you look good!! I might have dysmorphia but at least I have moments where I really recognize the loss. When I could see clavicle, chin and definition in my neck I practically peed myself in excitement! The loose skin is starting to be real and it really sucks we can’t get rid of it without paying tens of thousands of dollars. I’d probably be around a size 4 if I didn’t have it!

I was in a meeting at work today. Looking around, there was only 1 other person who is smaller than I am - she is a naturally tiny little thing. The others may have filled out cheeks and younger looking skin, but I never want to go back! Along with the smooth skin, there are also filled out butts, bellies, arms and thighs!

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
