Default Me> fat so me=cry

-sigh- I don't really even no where to go anymore, or who to go to. I just get "don't get on the scale", "you need calories". That's all well and good unless you want to lose weight. I've basically been overweight for I'm not sure how long, but meds play a huge part in it. Whatever the reason I'm not healthy, I look awful. It literally makes me want to cry. Because I try so hard to lose it...And that's just not going the way it should. Because I cut out a lot of things you normally would, and just in general cut back a bit. Which works to an extent. But if I get on the scale and find I'm even more than half a pound up from the day before, my entire day is ruined. And that happens if I eat a normal amount of food, calories. The dreaded calories. This all makes it so frustrating, it's discouraging and I'm absolutely disgusted with myself I hate it. Honestly I can say it so simply but I don't feel like I can say it enough to make anyone understand. I am fat and I hate me. Hard work isn't enough. Work between exercising eating or rather not eating a lot. Part of the problem today is I thought I was doing so well and then jumped back up a pound and I have no idea how to handle it.

That’s probably water weight....your body naturally fluctuates like that, try weighing once a week in the morning.

Do you mind sharing how much weight you feel you have to lose? I dont mean your actual weight but what you think is a problem? As far as the scale goes if you really want to see how your body handles calories and weight you should way your self naked, in the morning, after going to the bathroom and then do it again on the 30 or 31 the same way.

I'm about 55 lbs over weight as of today. I do that actually, I typically weigh myself in the morning right after I've gotten out of the shower and stuff. It's not always that I don't see progress, it's that sometimes I do but it makes me want more, and if I see that I gained even half, or didn't lose anything at all from the previous day then I get really discouraged, really frustrated and feel the need to not only make up for it but punish myself over it.

don't weigh yourself every day. eat a balanced diet. no fads. and exercise. the key to losing weight boils down to doing more activity then what you are eating (putting out more then you are putting in). period. meds will play a role in it. as you get older it becomes harder to lose weight. some folks (myself included) are sort of fit while fat...I can do time on the treadmill (or elliptical) lift weights, etc and my blood pressure is fairly normal. I am heavy but strong..not everyone has the body shape of a slim petite person. perhaps you are just not born that way. i'm stocky...ain't nothing going to change that. I can lose weight and look totally unhealthy, but skinny. and it's not good for me. you have to find what is the healthy weight for you..chances are it isn't the weight plastered on the printed forms.

lose weight if you have to but do it in a healthy manner...safely. don't get crazy over it..go slow..chances are you didn't get heavy overnight so lose the weight slowly. it's healthier for your body. mentally & physically and you'll have a better chance of keeping it off.

you only live once....my feeling is, if slightly heavy is what my body performs best at, well then I will be ok with it...I don't need to match up to what society needs me to look like.
