Trying to duplicate weight loss I experienced after my breakup

Hello. This may sound strange, maybe even a little dysfunctional. However, last April I experienced a horrible breakup after 8 years. I was terribly depressed and had no appetite. Obviously I lost a lot of weight quickly... 30 lbs in 2 months. I looked great, but was an emotional wreck. Now, 11 months later, I am healthier (emotionally speaking), have started dating again, and well... gained all of the weight right back.

Is there any way to duplicate the "appetite suppressing" qualities of that depressed state without actually being depressed?

I do not EVER want to feel that way again, but I would like to re-lose the weight again...

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Re: Trying to duplicate weight loss I experienced after my breakup

Hi there! The best way would to be some kind of GOOD motivation to keep you going. I think the hardest part is just getting in the habit of a new exercise routine and healthy eating, but likely, after you get going and start seeing results, you'll get used to it! Once I start to see results, I get so motivated and want to keep going. I take care of myself, but I'll set some little "extras" things that I normally don't treat myself to as a reward for a good job of staying healthy. After a ton of tough training I went through, I rewarded myself with a pair of designer jeans! They were expensive, so I know I'll want to stay in shape so they will continue to fit. Little things like that keep me motivated.

I also talk to my friends as well and we share tips on staying in shape together. A lot of my coworkers recently started Weight Watchers and it's nice to be around them because they're always eating healthy and makes me do the same. Telling someone that you are trying to make healthy changes can be a good kind of motvation, because it can be embarrassing to mess up and eat bad when they know you're supposed to be eating right! I also may look at an old photo of myself or even of another person as motivation to get back to how I want to be!

Good luck to you! I hope all goes well for you. The most important thing is to be happy, so just remember to be good to yourself. Some people only reward themselves in life when they lose weight, but it's important to always be good to yourself and appreciate each little achievement you have. Even if it's one great workout or one day of avoiding junk food, it's on the right path and it's something to be proud of!

Re: Trying to duplicate weight loss I experienced after my breakup

Hi! Why would you want to supress a natural appetite, would it not be better to feed that appetite but with the right food for your body? There are pills BUT take it from me, you'd rather not go that route, I've been there and most are unpleasant or just ineffective or sustainable for any amount of time.
Look for a healthy balanced diet that helps your body realign itself, I am looking into one at the moment, I'll let you know if its any good!!
