Hey all,

I am coming here because I don't know where else to turn. I am struggling. After meeting my goal in round 3 I've gone down hill. I didn't weigh in for round 4. I was too depressed. I can't stop eating. I snack constantly. I'm always thinking about food. This is what got me up past 350 pounds in the past. I was 211 pounds at my smallest (that was in 2019) and since then it's been going back up. I'm scared that I'm going to hit that 300 mark soon. I am almost 275 after losing weight in this game from 283 to 265.

I just really need some motivation & kind words. I did so well the first (well, not first, but successful time) that I lost weight but this time I can't get my act together. I'm nervous about spiraling so far back that I never come forward. I had hopes to be under 200 long before this time. Every time I think about where I could've been I get depressed. (I know I shouldn't do this to myself, but it's hard not to.)

I'm looking for any advice on what to do now and just some encouragement. Sorry this is basically a venting post but I don't know where else to turn to. Everyone in my life at this point is avoiding talking to me about this like the plague because they saw all my success, continually told me how amazing it was, and now that I'm slipping back... they don't even wanna touch the subject.

Thanks for being a group that I can turn to in times of need. Much love.

  • Dear Kellie,

    I’m a work in progress too.

    We always treat everyone else so much better than we treat ourselves. Give yourself a break and acknowledge that you are worth something great. Make a plan with S.M.A.R.T. Goals. Use the positivity here and participate. Believe...

    All the best,
    Meg

Dear Kellie, I feel you, I know this kind of struggle. My first real chance to change something about my weight was when I was in a better place mentally. Seeing a therapist can be a total game changer (not just weight-wise), and I can totally recommend. All the best for you!

  • Excited to have met my goal so early so I can celebrate my birthday with some things I shouldn’t be having on my diet and will have the time to shed anything I gain back off again!

  • We made it through the first round! Congratulations everyone!

    Whether you made your goal this time or not - and you're still in it to win it even if you were shy of your goal this round! - just know that you should be so proud of any progress and, most importantly, making this commitment to your long-term health!

    Most of us are rooting for each other as well, and I know that this January round is going to have a lot of winners! That being said, we may not have much for winnings this month - remember that only half of your bet goes into the pot for the round and half is in our final pot for this game. We're in it for the long investment - money and health!

    Speaking of money, let's have a little fun! If you were to win the lottery today, what is the first thing you would do?

Can we “officially” weigh in early? Or do we have to wait until feb 1/2?

You have to maintain your weight or lose more throughout the 6 months, so you can't weigh in early. Some of us who've been ready to weigh in for days now are just working on Month two goals. Keep going and weigh in worry free! :D

Elizabeth C.

Yes, you can only weigh in early if you're needing an exception (like I booked my dream vacation for the day before this ends!)
