Me, too. Almost all of the above. BUT I didn’t have a baby. It’s just fat fat.

okqueenbee:  I’m no help… I just walked into Walmart for some upholstery cleaner and walked out with 4 bags of Easter candy. WTF!?!

okqueenbee:  I totally relate to your feelings about WW.  it was the kind of thing that worked for me in the short term (for a few months) but I just felt so deprived and hungry.  I’m sure it was partly psychological, but I just can’t live my life counting calories and portion sizes. I went paleo 2 years ago and that’s been  a MUCH better fit for me.  I eat a lot more fat and fewer carbs now, and think I have a really healthy diet (tons of veggies, only good quality meats and fats, not “fake food”).  You might consider trying something along those lines?  It’s not perfect (for example, you do have to do a fair bit of cooking and if you hate veggies that’s going to be a detriment on any diet…and I still totally crave brownies and cheat regularly with chocolate) but it seems to work for a lot of people who feel deprived on calorie counting diets.

I’m with you. I also need to lose 25lbs of baby weight I’ve been carrying for over 6 months now..  i’m not on WW but I use myfitnesspal which pretty much has the same outcome – starves me to death.  DH has been really good about watching the baby while I work out but it sucks working all day then instead of spending time with my baby, I’m screaming at Jillian Michaels on my tv.   The only advice I can give you to curb your sweet tooth – i’m addicted to sugar free jello and pudding. It’s my bed time snack now.  I also have skinnycow ice cream stocked away for my really rough days.  Hang in there girl!

BeatlesFan629:  If you’re starving then you’re doing it wrong. Have you done the usual thing of setting it as 1200 calories a day/2lb a week loss?

okqueenbee:  Sorry WW friend to hear you’re having a hard time. In any lifestyle change, there are down periods so that is natural. I think you need to be patient with yourself and less hard on yourself. 

I have battled weight loss for years. Once I accepted myself and was happy with myself AS IS, I freed myself to get out of the cycle of guilt and shame to tackle the issue. You sound like you are still in that similar cycle I was. You are saying you feel bad because you have 25 lbs to lose and even then won’t be thin. You sound discouraged and that will sabotage your weight loss!

You had a baby. You are a mom. You are busy and sleep deprived and hungry. Be easy on yourself. Take a diet break if you need to. Don’t kill yourself physically or mentally right now if you can’t. Give yourself permission to like yourself. To sleep. To eat. And not feel guilt.

You sound really stressed out and I think you’re being too hard on yourself. 

Yes, the baby fat sucks, but don’t define yourself by how long it takes you to get rid of it. You have created life and an awfully sweet one I bet. Focus on the positive things in your life. With sleep deprivation and not having enough hours in the day as is, please don’t get so upset about sth that simply needs time. So what if these 25 lbs need three months longer to disappear. It’s not gonna kill anyone, is it?!

try to be kind to yourself! While I luckily got rid of most of my baby fat, my tummy is a whole other story. And I’m sure it’s never gonna look like it did before (not that it would have won any competitions even before!). But when pregnant I read this really nice comment from a mum that said, the stretch marks are like tattoos of her children so she’s proud to wear them. Mind you, proud would def not be how Id describe my relationship with them lol, but I do see them as mark (haha) of what I have accomplished and looking at my daughter, it’s well worth it. 

Modes it still suck that I won’t look the way I always dreamt of looking on my wedding day? Yes. But I’ll just do the best I can and try not to be too hard on me for not achieving more than I can.

As for me, I’m back to the fat loss bandwagon after seeing the results of a boudoir photoshoot. I’m currently wearing a size 4 and still look like a total heifer with my clothes off.
