broke up w boyfriend...time to lose lbs
 
I recently broke up with my boyfriend of 2.5 years...i normally stress eat but because i am on thus dang meds for tonsillitis i have to do a 10 day fast. Currently on day 4. Scared to step on scale but looking for support to get me through this goal.

Currently:400
Hope for after 10 light liquids: 385-390
Then next fast: i want to lose 20-30lbs a month

I did have a gastric bypass in 09 start weight 644 lost 250 then had a bad surgery and gained some back...so back at 400

Wow. Fasting for that many days AND getting over a breakup. I hope your doctor's got your back on this!

The stress eating thing is so familiar to me. That's my thing. But I know that it doesn't have to be the one thing that keeps you from your goal. You can do it - you can achieve your goal. It will take time but everything takes time.

How did you feel after losing 250 lbs? I have an older friend who had a gastric bypass about 3-4 years ago and went from 365 to 95. She is about 120 now after going back up to about 150 which is too much for her small frame. She was stress eating and I am pretty blunt so I told her NOTHING is worth gaining all that weight back.

It's true, because the surgery was difficult for her, like it is for many who have it done.

You have a choice. You can eat to live, use food as it it meant to be used, as fuel for your body OR you can live to eat, which, tbh, sounds damn depressing to me.

You already made the changes to succeed in losing those 250 pound! Do not lose that motivation! Screw the EX, his loss right?!. You need to do this for you, not him, so just do it!

I began my weight loss journey after my breakup as well. I found it to be very motivating - out with the trash and the fat! You go girl! =D
