The weight loss thread 2

I need to do some more fasting days. I haven’t done any recently and my weight has stalled. It seems I pretty much just stay the same unless I do fasting days, which is really dumb since I don’t really want to do this long term. But I guess I will if I need to.

I only lost 5 pounds last month, which is still progress, so not really complaining, but it still sucks that it’s definitely slowed down and is much harder to lose now. Going to really have to step up my effort to lose the rest of this weight.

1-hour on the elliptical machine exercising on resistance level 15 throughout the duration has resulted in a weight loss of 1kg or 2.2lbs. I plan to get back on the elliptical machine later and exercise for another 1-hour but at a resistance level of 9 for the duration. If past history is a predictor of the future, I should have a weight loss of of 0.5 kg or 1.1lbs.

Does anyone here on SSDI have any help with gym memberships or anything like that through programs? I’m kind of wanting to go join the ymca because they have a pool and I took to swimming pretty well.

Wow you’re healthy! I was 135lb 1.75m before my diagnosis 9 years ago. I would do 120 push ups every morning. Now I am 280lb, I gained 150lb because I don’t have motivation to train. I am eating and not moving all day because of SZ for 9 years. I have hypertension, high cholesterol and taking their meds. I fear that I also develop diabetes because its a side effect of antipsychotics.

I’ve not lost this week

But Ive not gained either

I think I’m so addicted to sugar that I will now cut out fruit too

N that way I eat less calories so might get some weight loss

I’ve lost a total of 15 pounds since starting on Wellbutrin almost two months ago. I’m pretty pleased about that.

I just had a McDonald’s quarter pounder with cheese and a large fries. Just my little cheat day today.

I took Wellbutrin, didn’t help negative symptoms. Made me sleep all day.

I am 5’5" and STILL 163 lbs I’m dieting, it’s been 3 weeks, my BMR is 1600 calories so I have to eat 950-1000 calories a day to lose 1lbs a week. I exercise like a maniac though, I train 7x a week for 1-2 hours the least. Now I’m stuck at home, I am doing like 2H walking around the neighbourhood then 30 minutes yoga at home and 20 minutes weight lifting. My body is firm, my legs are strong but I am still overweight. my BMI is 27.

I am learning to accept my body’s natural weight of between 159 to 162 lbs. That’s the range it seems to want to stay.

I am also learning to feed myself nutritious, delicious, moderate amounts of food.

I’m a size 18. I’m trying to lose weight, but I cheated on my diet the last couple days. I need to get back on track.

I’ve mostly been living on coffee lately. I’m sick of yogurt and mashed everything. I still can’t chew, but I’m not losing any weight really. I’ve actually gained a little. I’ve stopped fasting. Trying to be a little healthier with my weight loss. But I’m struggling a lot with accepting my body.

I swing wildly from feeling like I’ve made a lot of progress and maybe I’m happy to feeling really awful with how unhealthy I am. Like, I’m not as unhealthy as I was, but I’ve still got a long way to go. But my body seems to have settled here for now. So we’ll see. I’ve not really lost much weight in the last couple months. I’m down to a size 14 and my goal is at least an 8, but I’d prefer a 4/6. I’m really short, so even a size 8 looks big on me.

It’s hard to stay the course. I know. We’ve got to think of this as a lifestyle change instead of a diet. That’s what I’m trying to do anyway.
