I've just weighed myself for the 1st time in a year. I've gone from 250lb (17 stone) to 140lb (10 stone). I knew my clothes where getting baggy but that's something else.

I'm sorry I don't mean this to be nasty/braggy I'm just in shock.

Have you been trying to lose weight?

RickiTarr Sat 27-Feb-21 19:10:06

It came as a shock that you’d lost 7 stone?

All you had noticed were your clothes “getting baggy”?

confusedhmm

Well done!

Although I imagine your clothes must have been more than a ‘bit baggy’ surely?!

RickiTarr Sat 27-Feb-21 19:12:31

Maybe you’ve been washing too much and gradually dissolving? What substance are you made of?

Fabulous news. Congratulations

Well that's great if you've changed something in order to lose weight. If you have done nothing different and lost that weight you should see your GP.

How did your trousers stay up?

If you've not been trying to lose weight please call your GP.

If you have - congrats!

If I lost seven stone my clothes would be more than ‘a little baggy’ confused

DeborahHarry Sat 27-Feb-21 19:18:54

Presumably you've had to buy a whole new wardrobe at least 3 times over?

Yeah, I’d think if one had gone from 17 stone to 10 stone in a year, you’d have been literally walking out of your clothes since late last year at the latest.

Tell us more, OP. - that's brilliant (if you were aiming to lose weight?).

Sorry yes trying to loose weight. But also had some depression so I bet that helped some. Yeah I've always worn my clothes baggy plus been living I pjs for most of the year.

Wow, that's a lot to lose without noticing!

I went from 18 to 11st in 18 months and had to buy 2/3 sets of clothes in that time as everything was literally hanging off of me.

Like onesies?

Maybe that’s a dieting hack you’ve hit on there.

JackieWeaverFever Sat 27-Feb-21 19:26:26

If you were on a diet thats great!

Otherwise very worrying. I would be booking a doctor appointment asap.

Workinghardeveryday Sat 27-Feb-21 19:28:06

Good for you!!! Think of all the lovely new clothes you can buy 😁. Bet you feel like a million dollars 😁

JackieWeaverFever Sat 27-Feb-21 19:30:19

Oh cross post! Congrats....

I am the opposite.
I keep convincing myself that having lost 7lbs my size 10 dresses should fit and then am stunned/amazed they don't and I can still only get it slightly more than halfway up one leg blush

speakout Sat 27-Feb-21 19:30:30

I am glad you are happy.

I haven't weighed myself for 15 years
I have no idea of my weight.
I do know that I still fit comfortably into size 10 jeans, and I feel strong and healthy. I could be 8 stones or 10 stones. No idea.

Namechangeforthewin Sat 27-Feb-21 19:34:33

Yes onsies OH makes fun of my onsie collection. I'm going to dig out a pair of trousers and see just how baggy they are.

In which case, brilliant, well done you 👏

I’ve been living in baggies for the past year too. Unfortunately, my baggies have become less so 😁

Namechangeforthewin Sat 27-Feb-21 19:39:55

I've always been on the heavier side of things my side of the family are all over weight bar I think 1 person. Is it completely selfish that I can't wait to meet people again feeling a lot more confident now. Still think I could lose a bit more. I'm quite short but happy where I am atm.
