I am so frustrated! I lost 20 pounds, my BMI is now within the "normal" range, and my waist went down my 5 inches. I was feeling really positive about myself until I went to the gym yesterday.
I was taking a boot camp type class and we have to get partners. I didn't really know anyone so I approached a nice looking, slightly heavier woman in her early 40's (I am 28) and we started to run stairs. After a few flights of chatting about the class she asked, "How far along are you?" I asked if she thought that I was pregnant and when I told that I wasn't, she was very apologetic.
I told her that I have not been going to classes lately because I feel uncomfortable with comments like that. I am annoyed at her, but she seems nice and she clearly wasn't trying to hurt my feelings.
I think that thing that upsets me the most is that I DID loss a bunch of weight and maybe this is an skinny and flat bellied as a get.
I am eating between 12-15 hundred calories a day, no carbs (no bread, etc) and no processed sugar. I go to the gym between 5-6 days (45-120 minutes) and we walk on the other days. I am doing the "right" things and I still look pregnant.
I think that I could take it if I was eating candy and nachos everyday, but I am not.
My mom jokingly told me that I could stop wearing my wedding ring and then people might be less reluctant to ask...ha!
Does this happen to anyone else? What do you do? I was able to lose weight on HCG, but that has been the only thing that worked. I am not wearing Spanx the rest of my life and I certainly can't wear them at the gym.
