I Hate You Scale!


I have been trying to follow my meal plan and exercise everyday. I followed my therapist advise and stopped weighing everyday and it has come back to bite me in the butt. The number has gone up and my clothes are too tight. I'm going to have to cut way back on what I'm eating. I haven't been eating out so that is NOT the problem. I just can not seem to win. Today I'm going to half everything and double the exercise. I just can not gain weight and got to drop the stupid pounds I put on.

Would someone be willing to share a meal plan that works?

Don't be so hard on yourself - eat lots of salads, fruits, and veggies.

I need to lose weight too!

I rarely comment on weight related posts because I had to get out of that mind set. It only caused me to hate myself more and believe me I already have enough hate for myself. The problem is not weight, it is the hate that is perpetuated by the MULTI BILLION DOLLAR DIET INDUSTRY that wants us all to buy into their bullcrap. I know it's hard to do but my suggestion is to think about the positives about YOURSELF. They should be the same whether you weigh 50 pounds or 500. You, not an arbitrary number on a scale, is what must count. That number does not make you a better or worse person.
I weigh 275 pounds and I defy anyone to tell me I "need to lose weight." That is between me, myself, and I. I work with the elderly population and I have literally seen no difference between larger people, mid-size people, and very slim people as far as disease processes such as type II diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. The slim ones are just as likely to have these problems as the large ones, which leads me to the conclusion that these issues are age related far more than size related.
I wish we could all learn to like ourselves for WHO WE ARE, not what we look like.

If anyone can teach you to love yourself regardless of the body stigma we all are faced with, it's them!

Go easy on yourself! I don't know what your weight is so I can't say what is healthy for you, but all I know is that moderation is always best. As for the meal plan, I think that kind of thing is very individualized. Definitely consult your doctor or a dietitian so they can help find you one that will work with your metabolism.

Here listening.

Wishing you well,

Wanda-
Really, what I found when I was denying myself food is my body was hanging onto every calorie because it was afraid you aren't going to feed it so it hangs on to every single calorie rather than your body processing it. I think that is what you are experiencing right now. Go easy on yourself...
I love the card from ALice; very nice...
take good care!

Now that I'm older and my metabolism has changed, I have to almost stop eating in order to lose weight. It's so frustrating. I feel better when I'm lighter - physically and mentally. But it's really about how one feels individually and you shouldn't worry about what others would say or think. I'd rather be happy and kind being overweight than be angry and judgmental - and fit as a fiddle.

Oh Wanda--I wish I knew what to tell you! Maybe check out WW on line if you don't want to go out? If it's bothering you this much? I used to weigh a young--I'm 61, and lot more than I do now, and now I've gained back about 15 pounds. Sometimes I worry about it, and sometimes I don't (til I have to shop for new clothes, and nothing seems to fit.) But I'm not young--I'm 61--and like Faycin A Croud--I think it's nobody's business what YOU weigh. I don't think you'll be happy if you get to your goal weight, if you're not happy inside. God bless you, Sweetie!
