General Discussions > Weight loss

Now I know why I can't lose weight...

Melissa:
I finally figured out why I can't lose weight.  I suspected it before, but now I know.  I'm just too scared to lose weight.  If I lose weight, I am sure my adam's apple will become prominant and my breasts will shrink to nothingness.  I have been losing weight and I can already start seeing my adam's apple, whereas it was invisible before.  Also, the first thing I notice that goes when losing weight is my breasts.  Then my belly goes.  When the first 2 things start happening, I get really depressed and eat a bunch of food.  It's really self destructive and I just can't lose weight.  When people normally start losing weight, they get happy and the cycle keeps itself going, but I get depressed.  My face does look more feminine without the fat, which is what makes me keep trying in the first place.  I don't know what to do.  I just keep staying within a 5 pound range and go up and down between 180-185. Maybe I'm wrong about the adam's apple and breasts, but everytime they start changing, I freak out and feel like eating a bunch of food.  ???

Well, I don't know about the adam's apple. I've never noticed it in any of your pictures.
Could be the extra weight is covering it, but more likely you're just being paranoid.
Because I really doubt 5lbs would do much, the first 5lbs would probably be lost in your stomach.
About the breasts - this is why many women's complaint about weight loss.
I mean they're mostly fat, so if the fat increases, they increase.
Mine would go down in size if I lost weight, but nah, me and thinness do not mix. :D
Also keep in mind that maybe your fat distribution hasn't really taken place yet.
When it does your face, neck, and breasts should fill out more.

Melissa:
Yes, the fat does hide the adam's apple.  I may end up needing a "shave" after all. :(  As for the fat distribution, for the most part that already happened.  I noticed a sudden change in the shape of my thighs and a bunch of fat in the pubic area appeared and the breasts increased.  Subtle changes occurred in the face, but my doctor says that changes keep happening for 5 years.  When I'm at the lower number, I have a female type waist and I now have some fat right behind my arms at seems to be part of my breasts wrapping around my body.  All in all, I have a more female shape, which helps me pass.  You can feel my adam's apple if you touch it and it's quite obvious in that respect, but I was a little surprised (and proud) that it wasn't showing when just glancing at me.

Really? I've seen a number of people suggest that, but it surprises me since women generally have rounder, "puffier" faces. I'm actually intentionally OVEReating to hopefully add some fat to my face.

I tend to agree Kate.  For myself I dropped about 55lbs of weight last year and my face became so gaunt looking that family and friends thought that I was ill and that I had cancer or something.  Looking back a the pictures I can see where they would get that feeling.  I didn't look good at all.  generally speaking women do tend to have rounder, plumper figures than men and naturally carry more weight.  One topic that folks can look into is the "Body Mass Index" (BMI) it's will give you a very good idea about how heavy a person should be given their height.   Link is here
