Weight worries!

So today I am worrying. I feel like the weight I’ve lost is good, but I have a ton more to lose!

I feel like I’ll never get there! Its taking forever and I’ve been kinda stuck at 2 stone 3.5 pounds for weeks now!

I just want to shift the weight! I want to start losing properly again! Like, losing 1 or 2 pounds each week like I had been doing.

I’m a bit paranoid that I will never make it! I feel stuck.

I hope its just a blip, though. I think it is. All my weight is in my stomach, and today I worried about having saggy skin when I am done losing it. I hope I don’t!

I would be so upset if my body looked all saggy! That is just something I am not hoping will happen!

I worry a lot about it. I worry about a lot when it comes to weight. Its a real struggle for me. Weight and weight loss and related issues have always been a huge battle for me.

I guess I should be looking and noticing all of the progress I’ve made in the last couple of months. I know I have made huge strides, and lost over 10 percent of my body weight, but I dunno, I just, I feel like I have a long way to go yet.

The battle hasn’t been entirely won yet, but I am slowly getting there. Its just taking longer than expected.

  1. Patience, patience. You’re doing fine. I’d read that a lot of time, people will start losing weight and then do what they call plateauing, where they just stop. they have to nudge it a bit. You’re still steadily losing, even if it’s not as much as you’d like. You might try adding a bit of exercise to your dieting. That may help to speed up your metabolism. xxx


  2. I went through this while I was losing weight, too. What I did was have a cheat day interspersed in the healthy eating days. The body gets comfortable and you stop losing, so you have to trick the body into thinking it is going to get more. Then switch back to healthy eating. It feels counterintuitive but I lost 60 pounds in 6 months going that way. And, for me, there wasn’t any loose skin. I think it really just has to do with the elasticity in your skin, no way to know what will or won’t happen. Just have to embrace all the changes along the way. You’re doing great, just hang in there.

  3. Don’t stress, I will drop a lot at one time then not lose for months, but I do not worry as long as I am not gaining. Your body has to ajust sometimes when you lose before you start losing again.

    Sometimes we don’t notice how inactive we have become. We are always going or what but our body ajust to that it becomes out new normal. If we add just a little more activity we start losing again. With the extra walks you have been doing I bet you see a loss with in the next two weigh in’s. Because it don’t always show right away, don’t be disappointed if you don’t lose or don’t lose a lot this week and give up. Just keep walking.
