I hear you, Chelle! People say "Weight Watchers, what on earth are you doing there? You're so skinny!" I don't feel skinny. And my food addiction makes me need to weigh in every month (or sooner) to keep me straight.
I hate it when people tell me I need to put on a little in case I get sick. They don't realize that I will BE sick if I gain weight back!
I'm trying to listen to Nell's advice, and not WW who tell you you can have the goodies as long as you count them. Doesn't work for me, just want more!

I have the opposite problem. I have lost 142 or so lbs and now anyone ever talks about is how skinny I am, which I don't think I am.

But they also think it was easy and that I need to be able to eat whatever I want. They also are constantly reminding me how thin I am. I can't post a picture on facebook without someone saying how skinny I am,

I honestly never thought those words would bother me.. but they do


Also, since losing weight my life didn't get better, in some ways its actually harder. but We all live and do our best.

This morning around seven am my daughter calls and wants to head out walking....sorry i'm so late for coffee time....but anyhow we were talking about what Joan is going through and myself and how i'm so jealous of others when it isn't them it is ;me. I"m just being ugly because i'm being sorry right now and have been for quite some time. I am angry that I got myself just about to my starting weight once again. So am I over it? No i'm still in the midst of my own pity party right now, nothing fits, I can't eat anything good, i'm always going to be a pig about food, i'm so miserable in my own skin. You know the scenerio. But today I did take back something I had lost......a bit of my motivation. We each, my daughter and I, set a small goal....now to get there. So Today i'm holding my own. I won't say it has been easy or wonderful. I won't lie and say heck I got this. But I will say without you guys I would of quit by now. Do I envy Blanche, Nell, Chelle, and even you Joan because you have hit that "magic number", Yeah but not like you think. I envy that they had the motivation to reach goal, but more over they know they can't ever go back. So I have to relearn that I can't do what I did or I will be what I was........MISERABLE

Heaven's no Blanche you will never be rid of me. But, I also remember the lady who I actually met when I did the Jenny Craig things, she actually worked there, and she was over 200 pounds then, well she is the one that kept on until I finally went to WW's. Problem was when I got smaller than her same thing happened, she dropped me like a hot potato. As I said, I love Amy she is the sweetest person and even told me not long ago that I was the one that inspired her. My thought was, ''HOW????" I just wanted to point out to myself in writing that all these things that I jealous about, I can fix.

Love,
Joan

Thanks, Joan! You have just explained to me why a very good (I thought) WW friend dropped out of my life. It has bothered me for a long time, and I couldn't figure out what I had done. Now I know....she was starting to gain back some of her weight, and it was too painful for her to have me for a friend, apparently.
I wish she knew that I loved her for herself and for her personality , not her physical appearance. Apparently she just couldn't stand the sight of me any more. How sad!!
I hope not to lose you the same way!
I do understand your struggles. I am one step away from gaining the weight back every day. Sometimes I cannot wrap my mind around the whole WW thing. But I know that at 79 years old, if I blow this it may mean the end of my health as I know it. I cannot bear the thought of losing my health and thus my independence.

Yesterday (Friday) I mentioned that I realized I was jealous of Amy. Why???? Because Amy has worked really hard to get that 111 pounds off. I did that once upon a time. Don't get me wrong Amy is a wonderful person, but we have all been there when things are not going so great for us, we look at someone else that is slimmer, smaller and we think, ''they don't have a worry in the world." Which by the way is so not true. Amy has a very demanding job, she has two kids, one being a teenager and both kids are into every school sports thing there is, Amy is married, Amy has elderly parent's that live about 2 hours away, and I think Amy is an only child.....and Amy's job requires her to travel maybe not every week, but sometimes she is gone weeks at a time. But Amy still manages to train for a half marathon, Amy still is able to plan her meals, Amy has done all the right things and Amy has done nothing that I couldn't do, well I can't do a marathon but I can get on that bike and ride peddle it until it or me one screams. But no.....it is so much easier just to sit back, feel sorry for myself and be jealous of people like Amy, Chelle, Nell, and Blanche. I still love all these people, but I also want to be jealous of them because they are doing all the right things and I had (excuse my French) rather be pissing and moaning about what I can't do. So what can I do????

1. I can STOP the pity party
2. I can STOP bringing that stuff into my home that I know will get me into trouble.
3. I can STOP comparing myself to other's.
4. I can from this moment on....MOVE FORWARD.

Okay there it is. I have confessed, and I have admitted that I am powerless not only with food but with my feelings.

Love,
Joan
