Good for you losing all that weight to begin with. I am trying to go that again now. I agree sometimes dorm life is not conducive to weight loss. Specially with all the food that is always being offered and meal plan options. But just keep trying. If you are still working out maybe the 13lbs you gained were in lean muscle mass. That is good to gain muscle. Supposedly the old saying is muscle weighs more that fat.
With man this is impossible but with God everything is possible. --Matthew 19:26
Hi everyone, I'm a new member to the team. Currently I am really frustrated with where my weight loss is going. At my highest weight I was 215lbs. Last year I had gotten my weight down to 140 and kept it there for awhile, but now I weigh 153lbs. Which means that I have gained back 13lbs of my old weight and currently I have plateaued. It is extremely frustrating to know what it is like to be both larger and smaller than I am at my current weight. I know what it is like to feel more comfortable in my clothes than I do currently, more comfortable in my skin in general. While 13lbs may not seem like much to most people it really is a lot! And having gained back some of my weight I have a terrible fear that I heading in the wrong direction...right back to where I was before. Not a place I want to be going. I am only 22 and I want to feel in control of my life... A large part of my problem is that I am in college...and in so many ways dorm life is not conducive to weight lose. I need a new form of motivation! Thanks for reading everyone!
