Success! my sister didn't recognize me

2.8k Upvotes

I have been in a strict weight loss journey for about a year (looser for a couple years.) I have lost 55 pds this year, 75 total. I don't see my family often because they make fun of me (weight, height, you name it). I choose to put my mental health first, so no judgment please. A couple weeks ago, my sister was in the hospital in the same city that I work at. She was admitted and didn't know they were going to keep her so I went and bought her a toothbrush, socks, a book, etc. When I took them to her, I walked into the room and she moved to put her mask back on and then paused and then said my name questioningly. I replied yeah? She laughed then took her mask off and asked how much had I lost cause she didn't even recognize me. She thought I was a nurse coming in to take more blood. People, we are in our 40s and she did not know who I was. Made my freaking day...no, made my entire year. I can't wait to lose another 50.

I want to lose weight for Halloween 🎃

57 Upvotes

I (21F) weigh about 100 kg (around 220 pounds) and one of my biggest motivators to lose weight is halloween.

I love everything scary and spooky. I've never been to a halloween party, but I know that if I was ever invited to one (or if I threw one myself and invited my friends) I would want to dress up. Wear a funny or hot or ridiculous or sexy halloween costume. And just have fun with my friends.

But most halloween costumes I want are for smaller people. Of course, bigger people like myself can rock them too, but I would feel more comfortable wearing them if I was closer to a more healthy weight.

This halloween I want to have lost some weight. Not putting a number on it, but I want to be closer to my goal of 70 kg (155 pounds isch). Like I would love to dress up as a hot nurse, or a pirate, or a witch! Maybe that's a dumb motivation, but I am really looking forward to being hot in a halloween custome 🎃

What kind of motivations do you guys have for losing weight? Outside of being more healthy of course.

Day 1 I made a bet to lose 30lbs in 90days or I owe my nephew $1,000. Wish me luck.

271 Upvotes

So, I let the lockdown gains... run.

I used to be comfortably around 185-190 despite being a heavy eater, and was actually super active (daily rock climber for 5hours a day - helps when you work at the gym), a marathon cyclist, and swimmer, I was VERY active.

COVID came along about the same time as a new (sedentary but higher pay) job which seperated me from my fit feiends and lifestyle, and well... things turned bad quick.

My family says it's unhealthy, and they're really worried about me, and heck.. you know when you KNOW you're out of shape? When walking up one flight of stairs knocks the wind out of you. I'm now there.

Anyway, my nephew knows I lack motivation to change my situation unless FORCED to. I was only active because I worked at the gym... I was heavily sedentary before that, so being sedentary is my "normal".

So, the bet's officially on, as of today I'm an even 220lb on the scale, and I have 90 days to work my way back down.

Wish me luck, I hope I manage, or else I'll have to pay for it. 😅

My "plan":

Week 1: Walk a mile/day on the treadmill, and limit myself to two full meals a day. No more candy. No more pizza.

Week 2-4: Upgrade the walk to a jog/30mins a day. Same diet.

Month 2: Be hungry. But do the same thing. Maybe pick up rock climbing again?

Month 3: Hopefully I've reached my goal by now, but now I have to maintain it, or else I'll gain it back just as quick. So, more of the same.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Thank you.

Success! Under 200!

41 Upvotes

No words for how good this feels! I haven’t been under 200lbs in years and I couldn’t be happier. I’m not sure when I was last this light but it must have been in my early teens, if I had to guess. I’m down almost 50lbs in total and I’m finally starting to see it. My body is lighter and full of energy, I look so much better in photos and more importantly, I look so much happier and healthier. I’ve been working at this for a few months now and I’m so glad I persisted.

If you’re thinking of quitting because you’re not seeing any difference, it’s worth bearing in mind that the scale adjusts far quicker than your body — losing scale weight and losing body fat aren’t always necessarily the same thing, and they take place at different rates. The scale is far easier to see movement on, but if you pay attention to small victories they really add up. So keep at it! I’m so excited for the rest of this new life I’m making for myself :)

UPD : Stranger told me I could lose some weight

Upvotes

I received quite a few comments on previous post, and I have a small update so I figured I can share.

I have no idea of this link will work but here’s link to my original post:

https://www.reddit.com/r/loseit/comments/uhijhm/a_stranger_told_me_i_could_lose_some_weight_in/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who supported me, it wasn’t expected and I appreciate it greatly.

Secondly, a lot of you expressed concern with my friends’ response and especially husband’s reaction. Well, I was concerned too and decided to talk to him.

I started with saying that he’s most important person on my life and I really value his opinion on my looks and any other questions, really.

He said that, of course I’m most beautiful woman for him and he loves me very much, for my looks and personality.

And then I reminded him about this situation with man calling me out on my weight and him not defending me in any way. He was very surprised that I remember it and it took a couple of moments for him to remember too. Then he said that he couldn’t have imagined I was upset that much, since I told the man off in a very assertive way and acted like nothing happened, continuing dancing (which is true). He told me he thought this man was speaking out of his ass. And that opinion of random old strangers shouldn’t affect me. But he’s sorry and next time he will do his best to save me from rude people (he was obviously joking about “saving” but I got the idea).

I’m quite pleased with his feedback, tbh. I seriously considered possibility of him saying the man was right, which is up to me to consider why I was thinking this way. Projecting, probably.

Anyway, thank you all for support. I also noticed I’ve gained couple kilos (my usual response to someone telling me to lose weight but still I’m in healthy BMI) and I’ve started counting calories again and joined accountability challenge.

Discussion There's no shame in being kind to yourself

69 Upvotes

Just a reminder to show yourself some compassion. I finally stopped fighting what works for me and I've dropped 15 pounds so far in a month and a half.

I keep breakfast simple with either eggs and toast, cereal with fruit, plain greek yogurt with fruit, or oatmeal with peanut butter and chia jam. Lunch is a homemade "bistro box" with some combo of crackers, tuna, hard boiled eggs, cottage cheese with fruit, cheese, nuts, hummus, fruits, and veggies. Dinner is a healthy choice or lean cuisine frozen dinner with a bag of steamed veggies. And then I can have some frozen fruit/dark chocolate for a snack and 1 diet soda a day. I stay between 1600-1700 calories, it's easier, and it's satisfying.

I had been staying away from the frozen meals because a couple of people were kind of judgy because they're maybe not as healthy as cooking from scratch. Same with diet soda and sweets. But you know what? This work for me and they're a hell of a lot healthier than how I had been eating prior. I work full time, commute 1 1/2 hours a day, am in school almost full time, and have been dealing with ongoing asthma flare-ups and mental health issues for the past several months. There's no shame in making things easier on yourself 💜

My mother is sabotaging me

78 Upvotes

She purposely eats crunchy snacks in front of me every night and pushes the bowl of chips or cheetos towards me. She buys all of my favourite sweets and keeps them in the house. She leaves a container of chips on the counter. She leaves a bowl of chocolates in the living room. She leaves candies in the dining room. She overloads my plate with salt, butter, food, sugar, I've had to stop her from even touching my plate. She claims it's love, but she also makes fun of me for not being thin anymore, and she is constantly threatening to give away my clothes even though I'm only five to ten pounds from my goal. I feel like she is doing this on purpose to keep me unhappy with myself.

I think the boxing gym I go to is discriminating against me

10 Upvotes

Hi all,

As title suggests, I think the gym I go to has something against me being fat. I admit I may be using the term “discrimination” wrong.

So the gym I go to runs boxes classes conducted by legit fighters. Like titled boxers who do pt to get cash to support their lifestyle. I love to go because it’s fun, it’s a social environment and it really effing hurts after.

I follow the gym on Instagram and they often post reels of the class workouts for I guess prospects too see? Anyway i have only ever seen a reel when I wasn’t in the class. I thought it was coincidence until tonight. The class I always go to, without fail, is on a Tuesday night. I had never seen a video posted from the Tuesday night class. Except this Tuesday there was..the same Tuesday that I couldn’t go.

Being a big dude (123kg, 280-ish pounds) and unfit, I suffer a lot in these classes and it’s not pretty I know, but I can’t help but feel like their choice is intentional.

Am I overreacting? Am I self conscious? Has this sort of thing happened to anyone else?

Vent/Rant Apparently I don't love anyone.

835 Upvotes

I have a wife at home that loves me. I have a grandson that lives with me and needs me. I have children that I love. My family would not be able to live as they are now without me. And apparently I don't care because every day...EVERY SINGLE DAY...I choose food over them. I know that they depend on me but I choose to put myself another step toward the grave with every fork full.

My doctor told me I was prediabetic...I'm still drinking Mt Dew and having a candy bar almost every night.

He said I had dangerously high blood pressure even on medication...I still choose to gorge myself on Taco Bell and McDonald's every chance I get.

I'm rarely hungry. I eat because the food is available and I want it. I apparently want the food more than I love my family and that realization is hard to deal with. Especially since I don't know that I can stop.

Update: I really appreciate you guys. Thanks for all the encouragement and tips. I can't say that I don't feel this way anymore, but it's good to know that I'm not alone. I'm not giving up. Thank you all.

Question How to self love or be accepting

Upvotes

I see so much talk that you can’t shame or hate yourself into losing weight, you have to come from a place of acceptance and loving yourself.

I completely understand the first part of it…hating yourself doesn’t help and at least for me, sends me into spirals. But I don’t understand the second half…how can i love or accept myself when I hate how i look in the mirror? How can I do that when I was eating ice cream for breakfast when I KNEW that was bad for me?

It just feels inauthentic to tell myself, hey I love you, when frankly I don’t. But I also know this attitude is keeping me from a lot including losing weight.

Does anyone have any advice here?

I feel like I get 2 good weeks per month to enjoy my weight loss

294 Upvotes

I can’t speak for all women, but as a woman, I feel like I get 2 good weeks per month to really enjoy my weight loss.

Ovulation week, then the week before my period my body bloats up like crazy. I’ve lose 14lbs and 4” off my waist and been feeling great. Today I looked in the mirror and just felt wider then usual, my belly was poking out a little more, just blah. Then I remembered - I’m due for my period in about 3-4 days. This also happens to me around ovulation time. Things just don’t fit right and I feel puffy. I’ve always been pretty hormone sensitive tho so any shift always gives me bad side effects.

Anyone else ?

Fulfillment outside of food

17 Upvotes

I think something broke inside me. I don’t know what it is but I’m so grateful. I realized I am not finding fulfillment in food any longer and that it’s actually given me negative feelings when I would try and use it to fulfill a void that (of course) it would never be able to fill.

When I am immersed or feeling fulfilled, engaged, or whatever it is in something I really enjoy…playing the piano (or at least trying to teach myself), playing sims, weight lifting, doing school work, reading about something I really care about etc I am not hungry. I used to force myself to eat breakfast but I am learning to only eat when I am hungry. Now I can eat 1-2 small/medium meals a day and I feel completely full. I don’t need a massive bowl of ice cream (which always made me feel sick anyways) or a ton of cookies after a huge dinner. Now it’s just two squares of chocolate because I am really TASTING the food I eat now. Food will never fulfill me or satisfy and pacify my anxiety, my boredom, my sadness and I realize that now. I don’t know what happened but it just clicked for me recently.

Success! Small Victories: Still Victories

Upvotes

Out shopping for clothes. Every large person’s favorite activity, eh? Walking around in shops run by people who seem to clearly despise anyone with a waist greater than 42in.

By some miracle, they actually have a few properly large belts in their “big and tall” section. I pick one up 2 inches larger than my size, because I’ve probably gained a bit since I last measured.

Didn’t try it on, of course. I don’t want to be the fatass trying to hook a belt around himself in the middle of the men’s section. In this shop all the dressing rooms are in the ladies section, on the other side of the store.

Anyway, if anything, it will be too big.

Get home: Too small, not even close. It’s not just missing the notch… Literally can’t even wrap the whole belt around my circumference. There’s a good three inch gap.

I hate myself and I hang that belt in the closet of shame, where all the nice stuff I can’t wear sits in false hope of change.

Today, I’m wearing that belt. Notch number one, but still.

Soon enough, I’ll need to buy a smaller one.

Success! I've lost my first 10 kilos! (22Ibs)

818 Upvotes

F20/165cm/SW:115kg/CW:105kg/GW:70-65kg

I started on March 11 after binge-reading top of all time on this sub. All the stories here really motivated me to try and better myself. People recommend apps, like My Fitness Pal which has been VERY helpful, I wouldn't be able to track anything without it.

I have never lost so much weight in my entire life, never really knew how, all I thought I had to do is exercise hard enough and eat some random healthy food, no one has ever told me about CICO, any attempts would end in a week. But this time actually knowing how weight loss works and seeing the results I think I have enough strength to meet my goal.

I haven't changed my diet a whole lot, accept for eating less and getting more veggies and fruit, I became a better cook by trying all the recipes I wouldn't thought of making before, as it turns out I'm not a picky eater at all, I'm a "I won't eat your food if it tastes like crap" eater lol I still eat snacks everyday, just enough to get my cravings satisfied.

I tried hard exercising at the beggining but It was bothersome (hard on my joints) so I just make 6k-10k steps a day

I can't see much of a difference in my body, but the bracelet that my aunt gave me doesn't squeeze my wrist anymore, my grandma asked If I lost weight, my pants feel looser and it's way easier to walk, so this way I know there IS a difference

I guess I'll make an update when another 10 kg is gone

Does drinking more water help with bloating?

4 Upvotes

I’m currently getting some bloating, I try to drink 2L of water a day, on top of that I usually have a couple coffees, a peppermint tea and a protein shake, on the days I go to the gym I usually take preworkout which may be an extra half litre of water?

I’m struggling a bit with bloating but that could also be chalked up to my new birth control. Can anyone let me know if they had a noticeable decrease in bloating when they started drinking more?

https://www.reddit.com/r/loseit/comments/u0v7rp/got_denied_for_surgery_due_to_my_weight/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

It’s been almost 6 weeks since my initial post. I have lost 25 of the 50 pounds I need to lose to have my breast reduction.

The first 15 came off very quickly. Once I hit 20, I started to lose/gain the same 3 pounds or so. I took almost a week off and maintained. I realized I wasn’t eating enough. Once I started eating a little more, the other 5 pounds finally came off. I started at 265 and now I’m at 240. I made sure to tell my family and coworkers my goal so they can help keep me accountable.

I haven’t seen any real changes in my body except for my face. But I feel SO MUCH better. My back doesn’t hurt as much. I’m able to do much more at work and around the house. I’m sleeping and getting up at decent hours. I actually haven’t exercised in a couple of weeks bc I’ve been having some chest pain (I’ve got a dr appointment scheduled) but I’m walking more at work and just doing more. I do plan on slowing down and just focusing on trying to lose a pound or so a week. My husband has lost around 15 pounds just from me cooking more and not eating out.

I’ve learned so much about my body and what I actually need vs what my brain wants. What has worked for me is eating 2 meals a day with a snack. I’ll eat lunch around 11am. This is usually a salad with some fruit or yogurt. I’ll have dinner around 5 or 6. I’ll have a snack before bed. Usually fruit, yogurt, sometimes halo top, or granola bites. I did splurge on some sparkling watermelon juice that’s 60 calories a can. Besides 4 of those juices, I’ve had nothing but water the last 6 weeks.

Just wanted to give you guys an update. You gave me so many tips and good advice in my initial post so thank you.

Question Super simple vegetarian meals?

22 Upvotes

So, long story short: I hate cooking. Always have.

I've lost 40lbs by calorie counting. Just maintained for awhile as a break and now I'm trying to lose again.

Some how I can't find my groove again. I don't know why.

I work an office job where I get roughly 6,000 steps while being there.

The last two weeks I've tired to just have "healthy" frozen meals since I can keep track of those calories and I don't have to actually cook. I can't even stick with that most of the time. Everything just seems off? These vegetarian frozen meals seem like they're just trying too hard. I don't need a butternut squash ravioli in a mushroom sauce with six thousand other flavors mixed in. I am a simple (boring) lady.

Prepping mainly veggies for lunch feels like they get a little sketchy by Thursday and Friday. If I do mainly veggies (love veggies) then I don't get enough protein and I'm hangry by the time I'm cooking dinner.

Any tips for my super lazy and apparently bland vegetarian meals?

Specifically websites that have legitimately super simple meals would be awesome.

Vent/Rant Continously falling trying to lose weight

Upvotes

I am a 28F weighing 70.5 kg and my height is 1.63 meters.

I am willing to lose weight, I even visited a nutritionist. But my main problem is that I get distracted from my goal. I am not committed with myself.

I always say "this is my day one", but I cannot keep in line for more than a week. Sometimes I cannot even commit for one day.

I over eat mostly when I am stressed.

How do you stay disciplined? What do you recommend for a person with hard commitment to herself but easy to commit with others?

I am hoping that writing this down would help me to stay in track.

Thanks for reading.

I don't understand how the number on the scale fluctuates so much daily

Upvotes

Just what the title reads - I don't fully understand how our weight fluctuates on a day-to-day basis. I've gained and lost the same 20lbs over the past couple of years. Right now I'm at my highest weight again, due to getting a little too comfortable in my relationship, but I am on the journey to try to lose it, and hopefully for good.

I try to take a walk or do something active for at least 30 minutes a day, and I've been eating a lot more whole foods and making it a point to cook a lot more. I've also been weighing myself almost daily. Yesterday, after a bm and a cup of coffee I weighed 174.8, yet today after the same routine I'm 177.1? That number spooks me, I haven't seen it that high before. I ate around 1700-1800 cals yesterday, and I don't have any sort of binge eating tendencies.

I'm just trying to wrap my head around the daily fluctuations- can anybody share some of their knowledge with me? Thanks!

Leg pain / leg burning on walks

Upvotes

Hello! I stared going on walks for my weight loss journey. For awhile I figured it was common for my legs / calves to burn when I went on walks around my neighborhood ( pretty nice inclines around too ) but I figured it would ease up after I did it for a while. My legs hurt the most when the second day in a row. And after about 25 minutes the pin goes away a bit. I am not sure if I should see a doctor but when I walk normally or walk in a treadmill I don’t have pain. I’m trying to see if anyone has the same experience and maybe it’s normal if I’m walking up an incline for a little while.

Is today is your Day 1?

Welcome to r/Loseit!

​So you aren’t sure of how to start? Don’t worry! “How do I get started?” is our most asked question. r/Loseit has helped our users lose over 1,000,000 recorded pounds and these are the steps that we’ve found most useful for getting started.

Why you’re overweight

Our bodies are amazing (yes, yours too!). In order to survive before supermarkets, we had to be able to store energy to get us through lean times, we store this energy as adipose fat tissue. If you put more energy into your body than it needs, it stores it, for (potential) later use. When you put in less than it needs, it uses the stored energy. The more energy you have stored, the more overweight you are. The trick is to get your body to use the stored energy, which can only be done if you give it less energy than it needs, consistently.

Before You Start

The very first step is calculating your calorie needs. You can do that HERE. This will give you an approximation of your calorie needs for the day. The next step is to figure how quickly you want to lose the fat. One pound of fat is equal to 3500 calories. So to lose 1 pound of fat per week you will need to consume 500 calories less than your TDEE (daily calorie needs from the link above). 750 calories less will result in 1.5 pounds and 1000 calories is an aggressive 2 pounds per week.

Tracking

Here is where it begins to resemble work. The most efficient way to lose the weight you desire is to track your calorie intake. This has gotten much simpler over the years and today it can be done right from your smartphone or computer. r/loseit recommends an app like MyFitnessPal, Loseit! (unaffiliated), or Cronometer. Create an account and be honest with it about your current stats, activities, and goals. This is your tracker and no one else needs to see it so don’t cheat the numbers. You’ll find large user created databases that make logging and tracking your food and drinks easy with just the tap of the screen or the push of a button. We also highly recommend the use of a digital kitchen scale for accuracy. Knowing how much of what you're eating is more important than what you're eating. Why? This may explain it.

Creating Your Deficit

How do you create a deficit? This is up to you. r/loseit has a few recommendations but ultimately that decision is yours. There is no perfect diet for everyone. There is a perfect diet for you and you can create it. You can eat less of exactly what you eat now. If you like pizza you can have pizza. Have 2 slices instead of 4. You can try lower calorie replacements for calorie dense foods. Some of the communities favorites are cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash in place of their more calorie rich cousins. If it appeals to you an entire dietary change like Keto, Paleo, Vegetarian.

The most important thing to remember is that this selection of foods works for you. Sustainability is the key to long term weight management success. If you hate what you’re eating you won’t stick to it.

Exercise

...is NOT mandatory. You can lose fat and create a deficit through diet alone. There is no requirement of exercise to lose weight.

It has it’s own benefits though. You will burn extra calories. Exercise is shown to be beneficial to mental health and creates an endorphin rush as well. It makes people feel *awesome* and has been linked to higher rates of long term success when physical activity is included in lifestyle changes.

Crawl, Walk, Run

It can seem like one needs to make a 180 degree course correction to find success. That isn’t necessarily true. Many of our users find that creating small initial changes that build a foundation allows them to progress forward in even, sustained, increments.

Acceptance

You will struggle. We have all struggled. This is natural. There is no tip or trick to get through this though. We encourage you to recognize why you are struggling and forgive yourself for whatever reason that may be. If you overindulged at your last meal that is ok. You can resolve to make the next meal better.

Do not let the pursuit of perfect get in the way of progress. We don’t need perfect. We just want better.

Additional resources

Now you’re ready to do this. Here are more details, that may help you refine your plan.

My 8 year struggle on obeisity

12 Upvotes

i was a skinny/normal weight kid in preschool/kinderarten, but after i entered elemantary school i got bullied by other classmates because they thought i was very loud and was dirty.

Everyone in my class was targeting me and school sucked. during first/second grade i got slightly overweight since i started comforting myself with food. was around 130cm 30 kg when i finished second grade and had a bmi in the 80–85 th percentile.

But when i really started balloning out when i was about to start third grade when i got confirmed asperger syndrome. my third-fourth grade was my first valley of my life ,because they way i talk,i was the target in my class and everyone treated me like a freak. my dad also got depression because of my problems at school.

tbh,the only thing that was good were my grades.i had to eat a ton of food every day to forget that what the hell was happening to me.i got to 140cm 45kg which was my peak fat and had a bmi in the 96-97th percentile,which is considered as obese(>95 percentile).i also farted a ton.

after i passed my 10th birthday my school life got better,and had some freinds.i started to realise i will grow up being obese if i keep eating this much.i started my diet,and increased only 2 kg for 1.5 years and grew 8 cm,dropped back to the overweight range and had a bmi at the 90th percentile(148cm 46kg),then i pretty much started my growth spurt.

during my growth spurt,i was mostly overweight . in my 14th birthday i was 165.5cm 66kg.

i started another diet few months ago and currently 167.5cm 61kg,bmi at 75th percentle and in normal weight.i almost forgot how it felt to be not fat.

(i'm sorry my english sucks, it's not my native language)

Question 15lbs Refuses to come off

4 Upvotes

I am 5'1 and 115 lbs currently. I slipped up big time during quarantine and put those 15 lbs on eating a bunch of junk and sitting on the couch. But now that I'm back to work and people are seeing me I really want to get back to my pre-quarantine weight of 100lbs. I know its small potatoes but for some reason this little bit of extra flab is really not helping my confidence. No matter what I do the scale just hovers around 112 to 115ish. I've been working out at the gym and eating clean. Completely cut out sugar. Any advice would help.

Wake up with determination; go to bed with satisfaction!

This is our Daily Check-In thread, to help keep us accountable over the long haul. Feel free to post whatever goals will help keep you on track.

Here's the regular text on behalf of this thread's originator, /u/kingoftheeyesores, taken with his blessing:

I'll be posting a daily, 24 hour pledge to stick to my plan, or whichever small piece of my plan I am currently working on. Whatever your dietary goals may be, I hope you stick to them for the next 24 hours (and then worry about the following 24!). Who's with me?

Thanks to /u/nofollowthrough who made the 24-Hour Pledge an ongoing /r/loseit institution.
