Hey y'all, I'm in the best physical shape I've been in probably since I was a young kid. Ever since I started working. I:
-walk to school and walk home from school (Still do this for the rest of my community service)
-Don't eat as much (though this isn't all my fault, the house I live in barely has any food a lot of the time I'm here)
-I usually walk to work, and walk home from work (plus pretty much all I do on the job is walk, pushing carts to the front of the store; not a great job but it could be worse)
Basically I just walk wherever I go and don't eat as much. I've been doing this pretty much since I started working back in January. The past few weeks, people at school keep telling me i "look good" and keep commenting on all the weight I lost. I don't know approximately how much I have lost, because I don't weigh myself; everytime I tried to lose weight in the past the scale would say right around the range it usually did, I'd get discouraged, etc.
Recently, people have been telling me that I need to remain eating stuff (of course, not going to starve or anything), and tell me I don't want to lose too much weight, or I could get sick. My mom works at the store I work at, and she tells me that people have been asking if I'm sick; apparently it's rare for someone to lose a whole lot of weight and not be sick or something. I dunno. Like I said, I walk a lot for daily exercise, I don't always eat lunch or dinner (i do most of the time but I have skipped meals before), but I physically feel fine. Me being overweight was always the thing I wanted to change about myself. I wanted to be healthier and slimmer. Now that I have I suddenly feel more confident about myself.
So, I guess what I'm asking is, is there anything I should be worried about? I have lost quite a bit of weight, but I do still eat and drink fluids and stuff. Have I just finally found something (Walking) that works if I do it enough? I do skip meals, probably skip at least one a day, but I try to make up for that by eating. When I'm hungry of course, not just to eat. I just don't get as hungry as I used to since I'm out all the time. Can this pave the way for eating disorders or anything in the future, or should I just continue doing what I'm doing?
Also use this thread to talk about your own weight issues. I know a lot of people all over have issues with their weight, being too fat or too skinny. Talk about weight here.
