I sound like a bad person but I am a little bit jealous of my very good friend who recently lost 122 pounds. That is a huge achievement and I should be totally happy for her. Don't get me wrong, I think her weight loss is great and I congratulated her over and over on it, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't the tiniest bit envious. Remeron made me gain 46 pounds 2 years ago and since I stopped taking it I'm still having a heck of a time taking it off. Back in my twenties I gained 50 pounds with easy child's pregnancy, and it took me just a few short months to lose all my weight and get skinny again. Flash forward 14 years and my metabolism has slowed down to a halt. I joined weight watchers a year ago and lost 17 pounds of my weight then gained most of it back during the holidays. I started back on the plan this past summer but I didn't stick with it. I lost some then cheated and gained it right back. I stopped going to meetings temporarily due to not getting a paycheck and I think that's made a lot of difference. Weighing myself at home isn't as inspiring as doing it in front of a bunch of people. Anyway, now that I'm back to work and getting paid again I'm back on the plan plus exercising 5 days a week. I lost two pounds this week and bragged about it on Facebook yesterday. I shoulda kept my mouth shut. This morning I weighed myself again and found out I gained those two pounds right back in just one day! I have no idea what I did wrong yesterday. I only ate 1200 calories and I power walked for 30 minutes after work. Why the sudden weight gain? I am trying not to let it discourage me. I really need this weight off. I am 5'2 and now weigh 160 pounds. I suddenly have high blood pressure when I never have before this. I feel rather silly attempting to lose 45 pounds and failing at it when my friend managed to lose 122 pounds. If she can do it, then why can't I? I am going to stick with weight watchers and just shoot me if I decide to ever go off the plan again! I am going to look at pics of my friend and let her inspire me. If she can lose that much weight then I can lose some too. Wish me luck!
