Let me tell you that you are not alone in this.
If you follow my previous topics back in November to December, you can see that I was MADLY obsessed with my weight loss.
Believe it or not, I am usually the person who gains weight a lot even if I just sit around!
The funny thing is that I actually started to lose weight back in August and then I got a bad stomach flu that made me eat less for about a month. I also had a diabetes scare back in September so I had to reduce my sugar intake (fortunately, blood sugar test was normal).
The thing that really really really scared me was the fact that people kept telling me "Wow, you lost weight!" and as I look back at the things that I did, I believe they were not enough for people to notice how much weight I lost. Like I said, I usually gain weight by just sitting around and doing nothing. Never have I lost weight this fast.
Get this: Back in August 2013, I weighed around 201 lbs. In September, I dropped to 190 lbs. Then towards December, I dropped to 182 lbs. The weight lost just kept coming and coming.
I was at the point when I had to decline to go to Christmas parties and reunions because I was terrified to meet people thinking that they would say that I lost weight. I am a photographer during my free time and you know what, because of this weight loss scare, I was terrified to have my photos taken even in groups because I would compare the photo with my previous photos and see how much I lost weight. That's how bad it was.
And you know how the holidays make us fat right? Over the holidays, I still get people commenting on my weight loss. You can just imagine how ridiculously depressed I was.
To make it even worse, I felt really weak and tired during the last week of December towards the new year. So much for enjoying the holidays! I got a CBC with differential count and it came back perfect. The doctor was so happy yet I was still not assured.
Well, to make things short: It's February right now and I gained weight back to 190 lbs. I still anticipate people to tell me that I lost weight and honestly, it still scares me. I still obsess over my photos sometimes, but the main scare is not as bad as before.
Well, I guess the overeating has now opened up to a new GI symptom which is gas and tingling in the tummy. You can just imagine how HA is driving me nuts.
If you're feeling fine in general, then I don't think you have to worry.
