How have I lost so much weight?

Recommended Posts

kittehismeow

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.

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?

      This is such a bittersweet moment as you know your children are moving on.   We can only hope we've done the best we could in raising them.  If certainly seems like you and your wife have.    I noticed the PACWest weather as it made the news here.  It seems like some areas will receive some heavy downfall of rain.  Its gloomy here as rain is predicted later in the day through the night.     @Krisvm that's good news about your trip.  Yes its always nice to be home!   I've been in a bad way recently but got some medication yesterday that seems to be helping out.  I was able to sleep most of the night.

      Hello Kathy.  Thats interesting as you are my age and I recall there were a number of books on Buddhism available in my later teens.  I read one (don't recall the title) but it spoke to me in a way the religion my family couldn't.  While I never formally took up the practice I believe in its tenets.  As with Cyndee I came to see the idea of mindfulness as an important way to help work through issues.  It helped me see life differently and view others from a perspective I hadn't.  Early on I came to see that nothing is permanent and we all change constantly.      That is so interesting that you've met and had an audience with H.H.  I missed out seeing him a number of years ago when he visited the Boston area.   Jani

      Hi Laurel welcome aboard.   Everyone here is very respectful and welcoming, so I hope you find that too.   Love and Hugs,   Kris

      Hi Lily. Glad to have you here.    It can be hard to share so just share what you want to, when you want. I find everyone here is very supportive and willing to listen.   Love and hugs,   Kris
    • Krisvm
      Similar to you actually I ended up choosing Kris because the name I was given at birth was Chris, which I don't mind but wanted something more ambiguous.

      Good morning all. I got back from a week at a work conference. Whilst I loved being there (was my first since being out as trans at work and everyone was so nice)  am very glad now to be home under a blanket with a kitten on me.   Love and hugs,   Kris

      So I reread this and had to laugh at myself.  I was so adamant about not having Shawna.   As you can see it’s exactly the name I have chosen.

      We are also having a wet relatively mild day.30 MPH wind.  Actually a relatively big storm.  If it had been possible i would have finished the tapping today but instead i'm going to enjoy a day of rest after doing the chores on the farm.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I love my Spanx "workout to waves" sports bras, they have the most comfortable band (no clasps). They last !!
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I like the AhhBra Racerback style bras.  No cup size needed as it’s a stretchy material that supports very well. It will not mash your breasts like a sports bra can.  The racerback helps prevent straps from slipping sideways off a male profile shoulder and the racerback also could be viewed under your shirt as a tank top under shirt.  If they even see it.   I have a 38” band size as measured with a flexible tape measure around my chest right under the breasts.   My size in this bra is Large.  They provide sizing charts too.

      Good morning, it's a dark and wet morning here in the Pacific NW, raining and a mild 45 at the moment, going up to the 50's later. Enjoying my 2nd cup as I type this, reading and posting. No work for me today, we have a visitor coming from Canada to our home, our daughter's boyfriend is driving down to take several of her things back with them in a car this time. She is in the process of moving to Canada, it will be nice to see him again.    Have a lovely day.    C

      Welcome Lily.  Coming here was difficult for me the first time.  I was both excited and afraid to open up about feelings so long hidden.  Instead of disapproval i found the support i needed to find myself.  Hopefully you will feel the same.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I got a 48B from Amazon (US sizes, yes my chest is broad). I really need an A, but I've got all of two bras specifically designed in 48 (moose) that are also A-cups. One is padded and I don't think that's what you're going for.   Sports Bra   This fits well and is comfy. I bought one on a recommendation from my therapist and her large-breasted daughter.   T-Shirt Bra   I also got a pack of these on a recommendation from here.   Ahh Bra   They might be better for everyday wear. They're also tumble-dry which is a nice feature my sports bra doesn't share. The XL fits me just fine.   I completely feel your pain though. Usually when you see 48, they start at C-cup and go up from there. I'm really hoping the next eighteen months give me a bit of a growth spurt. 😋   So yeah, I use Amazon because I can't find a darn thing that fits in a brick and mortar store. I blame the patriarchy for discrimination against the flat-chested.   Hugs!

      Good Morning Kathy, I enjoyed reading your post. I was introduced to Buddhism by a friend here on this board I met several years ago, and she gave me a book by Thich Nhat Hanh called "The heart of the Buddha's teachings", transforming suffering into Peace, Joy, and Liberation. While I know very little overall about the practice, this particular book helped me earlier in my transition so much, after all gender is suffering. This book introduced me to the concept of mindfulness and how to deal with inner feelings. Feelings that were running wild at times as my body went through the adjustment period with HRT and my social transition. Mindfulness raised my awareness into areas I had not previously explored, and gave me tools on how to calm my mind, they really worked ! I just wanted to share how much this helped me directly with my transition. My 2nd therapist I saw prior to my surgery was also a big proponent of mindfulness, and i was able to use our sessions to further these practices.    I also have traveled to India and find the culture there fascinating.    Hope your day is a good one   Cynthia

      I have been on SM hrt on and off for a few years.  More off then on.  Until last November when I chose to stop risking my health and now on doctor supervised hrt.  So I have a long history of lowering T and my hair never responded or came back.  It’s very thinned out on top and above the temps is not as bad but it is not the lushes thick I once had.
