No loss this week, just bounces. I feel discouraged and feel like a gripe board would be perfect! It's November though, and I'm gonna try for lower DDs. No fun! Especially when the results aren't reflecting your work.

Sharkini, I bet your body is just consolidating, and that soon you will see a whoosh. Three weeks is not long at all to go with visible number change(try to remember that you may be decreasing in size).

Soren, sorry about your pup. I think stress (grief and travel) DO have a big impact on our bodies ability to function properly. Have you tried EFT? It is very easy and costs nothing to try. I got some good results from it.

Exactly! Why do we see nothing but the scale number???
have you turned into a pear shape or an hourglass? in my younger days, i was a pear. this time around, i'm an hourglass. not sure why i've changed. i never gave birth, as my kids are adopted.

Sirt-- no, but I can give it a try. Found it on google pretty easily

My one main gripe is the the feeling of deprivation. This is part of what fed into the emotional issues-- you eat when you're stressed, and damn the consequences... then get into a spiral of "omg, I've gained weight" and that feeds into the stress... and I don't want to feel deprived when I'm already feeling so many other things.

sigh.

So, my thing that I have to remember (this is actually an affirmation for me), is that I am bigger than my emotions.
it's ok to feel sad, or scared, or frustrated-- that won't kill me.

But it's taken me *months* to even get to the point where I'm willing to say those things and mean it. I'm still shaky on it-- like, uh oh, I'm hungry.. I *need* to eat.
And now I need to remember that I don't *need* to eat every time I'm hungry.

So, that said-- I'm about to go to an outdoor rugby match, in the cold sunshine, on a DD!
Hope they sell tea at the snack stands!

I think there's a whoosh on the horizon! Although I haven't been feeling puffy, I suddenly feel like I've depuffed. Haha..

It took me a loooong time to be able to see my differences too. I would look in the mirror and see how far I had to go, not how far I had come. I'm not sure why it changed for me all of a sudden. I'd say 80% of the time now I see a "normalish" sized person in the mirror. Heavier than I want to be, ultimately, but as trim or trimmer than most other people I see.

I like to say I'm an hourglass with pear tendencies!
Even when I'm really thin, my bottom half is a bit bigger than the top. That's what I'm seeing now. At this point, I really like my shape - I just want it to be a bit smaller.

Ah yes, the deprivation feeling. I think you've hit it right on the head about realizing (and repeating over and over to yourself) that you don't need to eat if you have a rumble, or a spell of head-hunger. You just don't. Hunger is not an emergency became my mantra.

Oooh, that's a good sign! Crossing fingers, toes, and for it!

I am starting to think that my thighs look a 'normal' size. This is very thrilling for me. The funny thing is, my thighs are still large and flabby. But they seem to be losing their fat deposits more quickly than other parts of my body, and I can see a DIFFERENCE.

After so many years of losing SOME weight, but not really SEEING it, it is wonderful to look at myself, and say, 'yes, I AM thinner'.
