This is the point at which I always fail

Postby ambernicole8484 » Sat Oct 19, 2013 6:45 am

I've been trying to lose weight forever :roll: I've succeeded at gaining only :doh:

Anyway, this is the point I always get to before I fail. I get right below 200 pounds and everything seems to stall and I just give up. I'm currently at 199 and I can feel myself thinking about giving in. It doesn't help that I'm 99.5% positive that I have a binge eating disorder. To make matters worse...It's the weekend :x I always do bad on the weekends. I've been stuck in this cycle for years. I don't know if I'm every going to be able to get out :/

Hey Amber - I am just nowing seeing this post. I literally just posted in General TTC boards about weight loss. I have basically been trying to lose weight my whole life, but this past year or so since TTC my weight has really gotten away from me because I just think that I will get pregnant anytime now and will gain weight anyways! UGH! Just wanted to let you know that you are not the only one. I feel ya girl.
TTC for 17 months

It really sucks. I have struggled with my weight since I got pregnant in 2004 with my daughter. I was able to get within 5 pounds of my prepreg weight, but then I started an upward trek that doesn't want to end :( However, since this post I have managed to get down to 198.5. Not a huge accomplishment, but at least I'm not back over 200! Have you ever checked out myfitnesspal.com? I used it a couple years ago but quit because I hated entering all the nutritional info. Seemed like they never had anything already there. I just downloaded the new app yesterday and LOVE it! So far I've not found one thing it doesn't have in its database.

I'm right there with you, amber. I went from 240 to 195, but I feel it creeping back. I know I had a binge eating problem a few years ago. I would eat amounts that I'm not yet prepared to admit. I have kicked it (with a few crashes here and there) but I was on antidepressants for a while before I got a handle on it. Now that I'm ttc, I'm obviously not taking them anymore. And it's a struggle. You're not alone, hun.

Congrats on your weight loss! I've thought about talking to my doctor about antidepressants. I fight it daily but failing to ttc for so long is really wearing me down. Combine that with a possible binge eating problem and it's disastrous for my waistline.
