~DISappearing PEEPS~Vol. IV Come Play With Us!!!!!

Welcome to Volume FOUR of The Disappearing Peeps!

All are welcome! You'll find it to be a supportive and friendly family of LOSERS!!!

The Rules?

Not really ANY rules, but we DO weigh on Fridays. IF you are weighed on a different day than Fridays (for Weight Watchers for example) just post the results on Fridays anyway.

Don't post your weight (unless YOU want to) just the amount you lost (or gained). Also, please bold the number in some way so I don't miss it for my spread sheet. The BIG and RED version seems to be popular....

-5.4 pounds

If you didn't lose or gain, we call it being a "SAMER" (which is better than being a "gainer", IMHO)

Along the way we have mini-goals hosted by our very own thread-dude, Aaron (aka WIDisneyfan or WIDF)

If you are just starting, we encourage you to take your weight number and measurements for progress purposes. These numbers are for your eyes only unless you WANT to share with us. Some people feel "accountability" is helpful.

But it's all up to you. Pick a diet or even just do your own thing, making good healthy choices for you.

We can help as several on this thread are at goal or nearing there.

You can post as often as you want, don't be afraid of being a "thread hog" (funny!). Sometimes the posts are food-trigger related so it helps just to say: "UGH! Someone brought a plate of cookies to work! Give me strength!" (for example).

This is a safe place and we don't bring each other down. We cheer even the littlest baby steps towards being healthy

SO! Let Volume 4 begin!!!

Everyone!

okay. I've missed the last two weigh-ins so I'm starting over. Yesterday, I weighed 145 pounds. My goal is to lose 10 pounds by the end of May. I promise that I will be back on Friday to post my loss or gain (it had better be a loss).

Monday I have my final exam. After that only precepting & OB clinicals. I'm soooooooo excited.

Hi Peeps! I closed the new thread opened by one of your Peeps and figure you want this one as the main Vol 4. Vol 3 is also closed.

I'm here to check in! Went to my brother in law's son's baptism today. I didn't do horrible with food, except for that small piece of cake. But it was small, and I exercised as soon as I got home. So hopefully those two things will offset each other.

Here's a recent picture of me, taken about two weeks ago. I actually like the one I posted yesterday on the "Volume 3" Peep thread better. I think I look better on that one. But this is more recent, so here you go. (And apparently I only have one pose when having my picture taken in front of nature.)



Oh, and it is snowing right now. YUCK!!!

OK, I posted my picture on the new thread that got closed, so here it is again. Can you guess which blonde I am?
Oh, Aaron, I had to tell you how immature I am. I saw your quote and I chuckled (even though I know it's serious). Dave Barry completes the quote, "I once cried because I had no shoes... Then I met a man who had no feet: So I took HIS shoes."

The way I see it - funny is funny. And that is funny!

Hey guys,
So I hate to start this thread with bad stuff, but I'm in need of some advice on an insecurity issue - kinda weight related, but more personal.
My boyfriend is getting an apt next year with another girl and possibly another guy. Umm I have big insecurity issues, as is true for many with weight problems. All three of my past serious relationships has ended in him leaving me for another woman... another skinnier woman to be exact. I know that's not why, but it doesn't help. Anyway, he is doing this because it is cheaper - the three of them will each have their own room, blah blah blah.
But, it makes me a bit uncomfortable. He just told me tonight, so I still haven't really thought it all out, but I need some opinions that aren't my jealous-tainted memories.
How do I approach this without seeming like I don't trust him or I'm overreacting?
All of this is not helping my self-esteem or my weight loss! Ah stress eating!!

My questions to you are....

Has he given you any reason to not trust him??

How/when did he meet this girl?

How long have you been with him?

If this isn't happening until next year, why are you worrying about it now?? LOTS can change between now and then.

Has he ever indicated to you that your weight is a problem for him??

Anyhow, right off the bat I will tell you that I am a VERY trusting person by nature, so maybe I am not a good person to talk to. But until he gives you a reason to not trust him or until you get some true "instinctive" feeling that he is cheating, LET IT GO. If you start being suspicious that is going to put him off. If you have ANY reason to believe he can't be trusted, then the relationship should end RIGHT NOW. Trust is first and foremost... even before LOVE (IMHO anyhow). If you can't trust someone, how can you give them your heart and truly love them??

I hope that you can find peace with this situation, somehow.

Other than that I am just coming over to secure my seat here on the new Peeps thread!...................P

Thank you so much for all of this. Right off the bat, I will tell you that I am NOT a very trusting person by nature. Too many times people close and dear to me have broken that trust, and it is very hard for me to trust people now.
To answer your questions: He has never given me a reason not to trust him. I have never met this girl, nor has he ever mentioned her except in passing so I have no idea what their relationship is. We've been dating for about 2 years. Currently we are in a long distance relationship as I'm in the city and he's in Boston. When I say next year, I mean next term - August. I hope to be up in Boston as well next year as I applied to a school there, but nowhere near him or this apartment. Our relationship is great and wonderful and he's never given me any reason to doubt him. My weight is a semi-issue because he never knows how to deal with it - tell me to stop eating the chocolate cake or to let me do what I want and regret it later lol. But, other than that, he's never shown any signs of it being a problem.
It's not him living with a girl that I'm uncomfortable with... it's the idea of a guy I'm dating living with another girl. I love him and I truly trust him, but he knows I have insecurities when it comes to this because my heart has been broken before. I'm not suspicious that something is going to happen, it just makes me feel weird because I've been there before - 3 times. This kind of thing is usually what happens when the guy breaks it off. "Oh, we're going up to her country house this weekend to hang out with some friends" or "We're doing this play together, so I'm spending a lot of time with her".
After sleeping on it, I've realized the reason I feel so weird about it is a) he didn't ask me about it and b)I love him so much that I'm worried about losing him. I trust that he loves me and cares about me, but I worry he'll start feeling that way about someone else the way they all did...
I realize this is off topic on the board and I apologize.
In terms of weight, I had a blizzard from dairy queen last night to ease the weird feelings. I had never been before, so I got a small. It was huge! So many pieces of cookie dough! I couldn't even finish it! I was proud though that I didn't force myself to eat it when I wasn't hungry.
How was everyone else's weekend?
