How have I lost so much weight?


Recommended Posts


I haven't started hormones yet or anything, and I've gone from around 280 lbs in November to now at about 205, I haven't even been dieting or anything either! But I'm wanting to get down to about 175 or so before I really start hormones. I'm 5 foot 10 inches. I hope to be able to get down to around 150 or so eventually, but it will be a while before I can get there.

If you figure out how, please share with the rest of us! ?

I wish i knew how i managed to lose so much so easily, other than being unable to pay for as much food, that might be how. Oh speaking of that! Is it allowed to have a gofundme link somewhere, to help with paying for like bills n stuff? If it is allowed i wouldnt even know where to put it anyway ?

Lmao. Yeah. It took me a year of very hard work and strict diet to lose weight like that. I’d be at the doctors if I were you. That’s an insane amount of weight to lose without trying. Maybe you have a tapeworm.

Such negativity, I just haven't eaten nearly as much because my family can't afford much at all, only brought in a total of about $8k this past year. Sooo yeah, barely making it through each day.

You might still want to go to the doctor.  Cause to lose that much still is very insane.  The last time I lost that much weight in that short of a time and was not eating cause I was not feeling hungry, is when I found out that I had cancer.

Yeah seriously. I looked it up when you posted this and to lose that much weight in that short a span is not healthy. It won’t hurt to have it checked out.

But you posted a thread that is asking how you lost this much weight without trying. I assume the simple answers have been looked into like not eating enough. That’s a simple answer if it’s the case. I don’t see why you’d ask if you thought that was the case. Idk. 

I grew up very poor. There were plenty of days we had no food, no electricity, no hot water etc... I know how hard that can be. I’m sorry that you have to deal with that. There’s nothing worse than starving and still have to go to school and beg the lunch lady for food with no money. Eating peanut butter and government cheese for weeks straight. It’s a hard way to live. 

I hope you’re okay. But if you really were asking, go get checked out. It could be anything. And it could be really bad. Or it’s nothing. Won’t know till you go though.

I have been feeling hungry when i normally do, but not having food to eat, and the school lunches here taste like cardboard with extra crunch. I'm also about to get kicked out because I can't find a job, at least that's what my mom is saying. Other than that I guess that I'm okay? Still am a bit curious if its okay to put a gofundme link somewhere?

      @Willow sounds like the most effective way to handle the scenario you were in and let it flow organically.
    • Shay
      @ElizabethStar I think you had a marvelous and rewarding week. I am glad for you... You deserve it.
    • ElizabethStar
      Morning @Willow,   Missed you while you gone. I'm happy to hear things went good. Sometimes reasonably well is the best we can hope for.   I stared using my preferred name at work last week. It's nice to finally see, hear and use it.  I also outed myself and changed my name on facebook. So far it's been well received.

      I've always been into the darker things in life. The "goth" lifestyle if you will. Always wearing black, and mean everything: clothes, shoes, jewelry, nail polish, even my underclothes were black. I used it to my advantage; started mixing in an occasional piece of woman's clothing here and there. Honestly I don't think anyone noticed. All they saw was a solid black outfit. I mis-directed their attention.   I did try to always have an out if things were looking questionable. When I first started buying clothes I tried to find things that were more androgynous. That way if something was said I cloud still say I bought it in the men's department. Although I did make an effort to find the most femme men's clothing I could.  I grew my hair out and would have it in a high pony tail. When someone said something I would go into an explanation about how having a low ponytail was really uncomfortable when driving.   I played this game for about 2 years before I got tired of it and started living full time. I knew there would be comments and people would stare but I was starting to see the light. I was happy with myself and started to not care what others thought.

      Hi ladies,   i have stayed away for about three weeks.  I don’t plan on going back to read all your wonderful posts.  I’ll just restart here.   My wife and I  went to our daughters house for a few days.  While there my son and his wife came to visit too.  That made it even more special.  Since we were all going our separate ways on Friday, the kids decided to talk to me about my being transgender.  Since my relationship with my wife is rather precarious I don’t force things on her like they did.  I didn’t  mind talking to them but to do so at the expense of their mother was difficult at best.  Our daughter in law wound up leading the questions. It went reasonably well.    Willow

      You're not wrong. Peers that know what you're going through are very helpful. I can't help feeling that your sons are in good hands though.   Hugs!

      Luck! May it be everything you dreamed of!   Once the bandages come off anyway, the first week is a little rough. 😘   Hugs!

      Im trying to take one day at a time. But like I said, I have a lot of connections all around up here north because work takes me to other places and our law given breaks usally ends up on a truck stop along side of each others. So the big scare is changing the reality when so many have gotten in touch with who I am at this point. I try to tell myself that my personality and morale is still the same no mather how I look on the outside and that it these thing people like about me. Still uncertain roads to take are always scary.   Thanks everyone for such warm welcome Victoria❤

      Thankyou again everyone for your kind words. I am very happy with how it looks so far ... though I can't wait to see what it looks like with the stitches and tape removed.   It's a bit scarey ... despite having been on HRT for the past 5 months ... I feel like I've really nailed my colors to the mast now.   Im trans ... and I'm taking no prisoners!

      Every time I read something like this I just imagine how unhappy she must be. I can see no other reason for the persecution she is undertaking. It's not like she needs the money, or the fame ... it's just pure hate.   And hate usually comes from a deep unhappiness iinside one's self.    So, my plan is to just be happy. I am a transissioning transgender woman and I am happier than that spiteful petty woman.   She can keep her money. It obviously hasn't brought her happiness.

      Yes, FaceApp was pretty much what set me over the edge from 'thought CDing would be the answer til the end' to 'must transition NOW'.    Seeing 'myself' 'outside' did it. And seeing 'myself' in everyday mode as opposed to a made up for cocktail hour mode.   I use it now with the eraser function to see how the hair I'm growing out looks if my face was more feminine, do the gender swap and erase the hair it adds.

      Oh wow, that looks awesome Berni ❤️   Hugs Robin

      Thanks @DeeDee. That's exactly the advice my wife has been giving me ... its nobody's business. Pretty sure I'll wear a scarf ... the stitches and tape are pretty ugly.
    • DeeDee
      It's no one elses business, but I would deflect with humour. Tell them you got it fighting off a ninja assassin or being Black Widow's stunt double for her new film...  Or wear a loose but llight neck scarf x
