I’m sorry to hear you’re going through this, that’s a tough one.

How about working out with a friend or in a group?  I don’t know if you have The Running Room where you are (I’m in Canada) but they have a great program for runners and walkers.  Good luck!

I can definitely understand.  I lost my job back a couple of years ago and in the 3 months following, I gained 30 pounds due to depression.

Ditto with hypothyroidism and weight gain since Fiance and I have been together…

Odd as it may sound, now that the wedding is a little more than two weeks away, I am thinking that I am going to focus on my weight loss AFTER the wedding and honeymoon.  It was too stressful to think about weight loss on top of planning the wedding… and we’ve since decided to elope, so that’s a relief, and weight off my shoulders. 

My approach seems so backwards to me.  I know the idea of the wedding should have been so motivating to me, but all the pressure bogged me down. I think I’ll be more motivated by the idea of being FI’s wife, and wanting to better myself! 🙂

I’m in the same boat. My weight fluctuates abnormally because of one health issue or another. I lost 15 lbs in a month and my gyn asked me how, and I had no idea. Hormonal issues, but then I gained about 50 lbs in a year. UGH! Trying really hard now to lose this weight. 🙂 I’m always in pain, muscle and joint conditions, but I’m just going to have to push through it. My rheumatologist told me that yoga and pilates are going to be the best and least painful exercises, so I really need to get on the ball and stick to it!

I completely get that. I was anorexic in high school and ruined my metabolism. By the time Fiance and I started dating, I was somewhere around 250 pounds. He was that guy that everybody wanted, and no one could figure out why he picked me, so I was so depressed a lot of the time that I never even bothered working out, because, a lot of the time, even a piece of celery could add ten pounds.

Are you done with the treatments? If so, could you maybe start working out now? I’m too self-conscious to go to the gym, but Fiance got me a Wii Fit for Christmas and it really works.

I have endometreosis too and I have read somewhere that we have higher levels of estrogen than normal and that it itself makes it harder to lose weight. Do you mind of I ask what treatment your on? I take ortho tri cyclin(birth control) as my endometreosis “treatment” and It’s one of the only birth control I havn’t gained weight on and can easily lose weight/maintain my weight on. I also know that eating things with added hormones or processed is even worse for us because our hormone levels are not normal anyways. I am sure you are beautiful! Women of all sizes have insecurities ….if you can start to truly love yourself and what makes you special..the mirror won’t be as much of an enemy as it is now. Our appearance is something that can change at any time, but when you have a good heart it really is the most beautiful thing that nobody can buy. It sounds cliche but it’s true. <3
