Some background; did S/W a few years ago and (stupidly) after losing 4+ stone decided that it had "stopped working". Sigh! Yep, fast forward 3 years, 2 stone back on and started again at 15 stone 8. It's coming off, and I'm dead chuffed - currently 13st 13.5.
The thing is, people are telling me that I have "lost enough". Now, I've always been curvy (like, genuinely curvy, not just when I was very overweight!) and last time I was on S/W, the lowest weight I got to was 13st 3...at that point, my blood sugar/pressure fell very low to the point where I was quite ill and I was advised by my GP to just maintain my weight and not try to lose any more, despite my BMI still being borderline obese. He just told me bluntly that it is an outdated tool and doesn't suit everyone.
At that weight, I was a size 12 and at the moment, my size 14's are getting a little slack. I do have a very hefty chest which seriously goes NOWHERE no matter what the weight loss - the back size goes down, the cup size goes up (currently 32L) and I think my thighs will always be on the meaty size! ;-)
The thing is, I see women posting here, and commenting at group etc... I don't really want to get into this at that forum hence my asking here. But I see women who (I think) weigh much less than me but are the same size?? And women who are my weight who are size 18?? People think I'm joking when I tell them I'm alomost 14 stone (weigh-in tomorrow so hoping for a little more off!)
I'm 5ft 6 and well, just after pointers/comments really. I feel my group leader will be reluctant to set my target weight at 12st 9 (which is kind of what I have in my head - but still clearly "overweight") and when I tell people I'm after 1/2 stone off more than last time I lost the weight, they look at my like I'm bonkers?!?!
Hoping this prompts a bit of a discussion, I guess - not sure what anyone could do to "help".
Thank you :-)
