I'm losing weight again!!! :(

At the beginning of the year I was dropping under my comfortable weight, it made me very uncomfortable with myself, not an unhealthy weight or anything (140-145) but I added oatmeal smoothies to my lunches and after about a month I got back up to 150 I like being between 155 and 160, I'm 6' tall....

Anything under 150 and I just feel like a skeleton... I'm a double A and when I'm too thin my rib cage shows more than my chest, but that could just be the way I see myself..... and not others...

But last week I weighed myself randomly and I was down to 142.... just now I was the same...

I know it seems crazy to worry about 10 pounds, especially when I'm still in my healthy weight range, but I can't help it...... growing up I was stick thin even though I ate like a horse, I was constantly teased about being anorexic... and as an adult my family notices when I drop weight and they make small remarks about my health that dig deep... my weight shows in my face.... I'll be adding my oatmeal smoothies back to my shopping lists next week...... 

Ok my rant is over, you may now return to your previously scheduled programming.......

I am the same way, if I am under 130 I feel sick. I have no butt whatsoever. I felt so good when I was pregnant.

I accepted a long time ago that I would never have a butt!! Lol even while pregnant.... with my first I put on 125 (I was 275 at my last check up no medical condition, just a lot of water weight) still had absolutely no tush!!! Lol 

It's my chest that bothers me most... I was a b pre baby, a c during, then a b again after dd... then a c with ds and now I'm down to a AA....... and I think it's because I just lost too much weight after him....

I share your pain. I'm not down to an unhealthy weight, but I have trouble keeping weight on as well.

Good luck getting your weight up. It sucks being uncomfortable in your skin.

Have you ever had a medical workup about not being able to keep weight?  There could be medical reasons why. 


I'm overweight.  I'd rather be thin, but I know how it feels to try so hard to get your weight to where it should be and not be able to get there.  I feel for you.  good luck
