Weight Gain

I’ve been paying for my gym membership since February & I never went. Today was my first day in yoga at my gym. I got pissed afterwards cause the TruFit personal trainers were trying to hard sell me on a package. Hello! I barely go to the gym and you want me to pay more?

During my fitness assessment I had to weigh myself. I weigh 312 pounds. I’ve gained 10 pounds in the last 2 months. It’s not that big of a surprise because I’ve been eating a overwhelming amount of cake. This morning I ate half of a key lime pie. I want to get this under control. I need some kind of direction from a therapist or someone. I think maybe 1 strategy is to eat lower calorie desserts. Like get the sugar free stuff or something like that. I can’t keep going like this because I’ll be 400 pounds soon.

When I was doing Nutrisystem, I lost 30 pounds without even trying. I never weighed myself, but by the time I stopped NutriSystem I was at 280 pounds. I hate the NutriSystem food though. It’s gross. But it was low calorie. I need to find some low calorie dessert options, does anyone have any suggestions?

I’ve decided to go to yoga twice a week because I need to strengthen my core and I am having trouble with mobility. My body hurts every time I get off work, because of all the bending over, so I think yoga can help with that cause it puts you thru different positions so my body can adapt. My yoga class was great this morning, not hard at all.

    It’s good you’re still working at it. Perseverance is a good thing. I’ve always really liked weight watchers. I used their system to lose weight after I had my kids. Things I learned with them gave stuck with me and I still use their techniques today. Good luck with everything.

    I had to go through a 6-month wait to prove to the insurance company that I really needed VSG surgery. I was unsure about whether or not I really wanted the surgery but I knew I didn’t want to “diet” anymore. So I gave myself permission to eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. This actually freed me. I didn’t gain a pound during that 6 months; I’d gained 25 lbs the 6 months before that and over 80 lbs the prior two years. The raging hunger I always felt left me, and for the first time in my life I didn’t need to finish every bite of everything I ate. This wasn’t enough to lose weight, but I got control of my appetite and got rid of the feeling that my stomach was a big empty hole I could never fill.

      Hi Maloyo,
      I gave myself permission to eat whatever I want and found out that what I wanted to eat was massive amounts of cake and pie. It’s become expensive and dangerous to my health. I need to stop but I’m having a difficult time stopping. Tonight I bought Fiber One oatmeal cookies and fig newtons as an alternative to the high calorie cake and pie. I hope it helps.

    You have to let go of the guilt about what you eat and accept the outcome. It is a process. I kept eating things like potato chips (my personal favorite) but I didn’t feel the compulsion to eat a one pound bag at a time; 2 or 3 ounces were enough. Again, you won’t lose weight doing that but you’ll get it under control. I’m not into paleo or keto, but eating a lot of processed carbs (cookies, fig newtons, cake, pie) just makes you hungrier. They quickly turn into sugar and cause insulin spikes, which just make you crave them more.
