(Low Carb)
Weight: 187.0

Good evening all! I hope all is well with everyone. I am slightly concerned with my obssession with my weight I try not to and I was doing really well until the nurse at my physicians office accidentally told me how much I actually weighed a couple of weeks ago. There are post-its all over my chart  telling everyone to how much I've lost but not how much I weigh..I know it has alot to do with being a gymnast as a kid and making weight requrement that my coach wanted us to be..Unfortunately we went to extreme measures to "make weight" and it still haunts me...I know that i am doing really well in my quest to be in top shape again but I don't want to start ovethinking, I need to get out of my own head!!!!  Anyone out there experience this?? I hope everyone has a good evening..

Progress as of today: 40 lbs lost so far, only 37 lbs to go!

When I first started trying to eat healthy two months ago, I was totally obsessed with weight - particularly the #s on the scale. For me, that obsession has decreased over time and now I just try to focus on healthy choices instead of the weight itself. (Trust me, some days are better than others!) Sorry, that's not a solution - just my experience. You have lots 40 lbs which is wonderful! Whatever you're doing is working; maybe you can relax knowing you're doing the right thing? Hope you have a good day. :)

Hi V, Thank you for your comment, it was very up lifting. I see you are doing low carbs. Low carbs is a very good program. Welcome to DD's, I'd love to see your pictures. Who we are, on the inside, is much more important than our outer display. It's just nice to put a face to the people we communicate with. Keep hanging in there, I'm cheering for you!!!! & Yes We Can! Hugs!

(Low Carb)
Weight: 187.0

I am a newbie to this website! I am very excited to have someone that can relate to my situation...I am surrounded by mostly healthy fit people and it inspires me to be the same way,however it is a constant struggle to stop obsessing about how I gained so much weight over the past 3 years. My weight gain started right after my miscarriage....I felt like I never truly grieved over my loss and my very cold and callous Dr. brushed me off as if to say "well that's life get over it". I think I slowly started to realize that my window of opportunity to have a child is quickly coming to a close. Unlike most people who find comfort in food I eased mine with wine and sometimes beer and shots. I wouldn't consider myself an alchoholic but I did find myself progressively overindulging. Before the weight gain I had drinks once a week and it went to 2-3 times a week. I now understand the meaning of empty calories. although my food intake was basically the same the calories from whatever I drank started catching up with me. About 2 months ago it finally hit me that I needed to do something about the weight gain. I went to a doctor who specializes in weight loss and he put me on a very low carb/high protein diet for now.....I haven't had a drink since! I now have the tools and the motivation to lose the weight and keep it off! It is a long road ahead of me but I am on my way. I look forward to looking great in my clothes again and also being able to have a glass of Pinot Grigio every now and then!

Progress as of today: 40 lbs lost so far, only 37 lbs to go!
