    I try to avoid the subject of weight usually, but it is nice to see other women with the same sistuation as I. Even if people I hang with dont mean to they sure can make a body feel like they are the only one. It has been almost 2mnths. since I have been on phen and a good mnth of walking with it. I am going on 20lbs. lost. I was told that is good by my DR. I am glad to know that I can share it with girls that can understand. Unlike some others that wont think of it as a big deal or say "ok do more". So, thanks girls for your supportive post.

    LOL, that's so funny. Mine said 165 even when I weighed 280 (granted I weighted 215 when I got it). Anyway, when I got my motorcycle license a few years ago was when I'd lost all the weight and I went in for my new pic and license and I put 175 on the application as that's how much I weighed... Well, the lady behind the counter at the DMV looks me up and down and says,"there's no way you weigh 175" I said, "actually I do! I'm pretty muscular though! " She said, "Honey, I refuse to let you put anything over 150 on this license! you'll make the rest of us look bad!" I said LOL, well how about we meet in the middle at 165.

    so it's funny because I have two licenses with COMPLETELY different pics and in both of them it says I weigh 165.

    LOL

    I also have gained so much confidence in myself since I have been here!

    I used to flinch at the thought of telling someone my weight.

    Now that I have lost so much I proudly say:

    Yap- "I was a size 22/24 weight 242 and now
    I am almost a 10!- weight goes up and down between 159-161 "!!

    They just can't believe I weighed what I did.

    Everyone Good Luck in reaching your goals!!!!!

    I've done this. The last time I had my ID renewed the lady asked me my weight. I said 120 (yes I had a straight face) I was about 175. She looked at me and I said "I'm bloated, dang PMS" and she said "I understand, honey" and put 120 down. Bless her heart...I always think of her when I pull out my ID.

    Even when I told my husband what I weighed he was saying "No Way". Don't misunderstand, he has NEVER said anything about my weight, he just knows how much I want to lose and knows how much better I feel about myself when I do lose the weight. I think being taller its just easier for me to carry the weight. No one and I mean NO ONE (other than my husband) knows what I weigh except on here, haha. I love the people on here so much. No one comes across as judgemental. We are all here for the same purpose, to seek that support we know we can't get from people in our everyday lives.

    CMarie - my husband doesn't know my weight either ... I even lied about it when we had to complete life ins. paperwork when the boys were born.

    You didn't make me feel bad ... I was just playing.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    It's funny so people are so out there with anything and everything ... just lay it out there, not me. Private big time. But like you ... it's odd I put my weight on here ... (so not me) but it's a nice change to just "say it"

    You are not a sneaky liar. Sometimes people can be so judgemental that you have to omit certain things.....that's different.

    Plus, you help so many people with your advice and encouragement. You are worth gold lady, you hear me?

    I was just feeling so grateful that I don't have to lie about my weight...it's almost freeing. And this is the first time I've been honest about my weight. To others and myself.

    I really didn't mean to make you feel bad.

    Default It feels great being able to be honest

    I love it here so much. For the first time in a long time I am able to be honest about my weight. Normally I would just minus 10 pounds or more. I can come here and gripe or share joy and am not being judged by what I weigh. I can share my struggles (food or whatever) and know that their is at least someone else that is/has struggled with that same thing. None of my other girlfriends could understand my freakout about a bowl of cereal. You guys do!! And for that I am so thankfull.
