Ok so, more like pant sizes.
I'm looking forward to losing some of this extra fluff I have been carrying for the last few years. I had been losing when I got pregnant & that sort of derailed that train. When I got.married I was not fat BUT then I had to learn to cook for hubby & spaghetti was one of the only things I knew at first so *BAM* fat lady in the making. I finally learned to cook after 2 years & turning hubby diabetic with all the pasta, we both went on a diet. Hubby lost weight & I was losing too shortly after I found out I was pregnant. Fast forward 5years...still fat. I have dieted on & off but hit my heaviest at 275lbs I hated myself, I lost 20 pounds but myself & I still aren't on a friendly basis.
I now weigh 254 pounds. I am 5'7, not tall but not too short. I am stuck between sizes in clothes & want to lose weight so I can go shopping for things that actually fit. I have other (better) reasons for wanting to lose too, I want to play with dd & not need oxygen half way thru a game of tag & I want to around to see her get married (she is 5 I have ways to go).

This is from a post I made in ànother group last night. I was very discouraged & feeling I'm down when i posted it. It repeats a lot of what I have in my op but I think is important to my journey.



****

I am 5'7 & weigh 254. I want to at least get to 170 but my short term goal is 200.



I want to be happy with how I look & be able to play with my dd without being out of breath. I have not been shopping for clothes in over 5 years other than a needing something for a special occasion here & there. I hate getting dressed & having to look in the mirror. I often wonder how dh is still with me.



I don't really have any friends that I can workout with or anything. My sil SAYS she is going to try with me but I k ow it is a lie because her mom is paying for her to get the lapband thing to lose weight (she is over 300) & doesn't like to workout anyway.



I know I can lose weight because I have. I was 275 not long ago. I started to feel really tired all the time & thought my thyroid was messed up, it's not. Thinking back it could have been that was only eating spinach & tomato sandwiches & drinking loads of water.



I have major body issues & little to no self esteem & it makes me feel like giving up because I think I will always look like this no matter what I do. Like I said I know I can do it but sometimes the other takes over in my head & I want to just throw my hands up. Today was one of those days. r

Omg! I hate eating out & not knowing how many calories & all are in the food! I was bad & ate at hardees, I had a chicken sandwich & some onion rings...so good but so bad. Hubby & DD were starving & all the other places were packed so it was our only choice.
I.am going to get back on track in the morning.
