I posted this in the weight and diet category too, but I know in this group, I will get plenty of responses. I love you guys! We are loyal aren't we??!!! So, I was at my nephew's wedding. I wore a new pink dress that is size large. I'm in between a 14 and 16 right now, and got the large because I didn't want my tummy bulges to show. Well.... my Dad's aunt asked me if I was pregnant?? I'm 45 too, (and ironically have had a hysterectomy). Anyway, after seeing myself in pictures in my camera, I was horrified to find that I DID look like I was pregnant! Heaven to betsy it's hard to lose weight with fibro. I excercise, but not as much as I'd like due to flare ups. I'm simply not as active because of my fibro, since the fatigue is the most disabling part of it. I rest all the dang time, thereby barely burning calories. I eat quite well, and eat very few treats, and food in moderation. I am bound and determined now to lose weight, but know how much resolve it takes and feel very weak willed at this time in my life. We have so many other stressors right now, mainly financial, that I find the thought of losing weight, and what it takes to do it, is a bit overwhelming for me, but I want to do it more than ever. Can you believe that with so many of us above our ideal weight, people would still ask that? My tummy wasn't visible and it's not even that huge as if I had a baby in it or something. Ugh!! Or could I take it that she thinks I'm young enough to still have a baby:):). I'm 45 if I didn't mention it.
