    Worried about my weight
    Emmpressed posted:
    A little about myself. I am a 29 year old male who is 5'8". Las month I was weighing in at 205 and decided to lose weight. I worked out for two weeks anthem got lazy and stopped. I started to eat healthy but also stopped. Well I started to lose weight and even though I stopped working out and eating healthy I kept losing the weight. I lost 20 pounds that month an now stay around 185. This sounds great especially since I fit all my old clothes again and look better. But I have been challenging this a lot. I started eating whatever I wanted to see if I can put in weight and dont. I can go to bed 188-189 and wake up 185. An example of my eating is like yesterday I woke up ate two donuts and coffee, ate a sack before lunch, ate tater tots and pirk chops for lunch, ate a bag of animal crackers an hour later, drank a monster,got home and drank beer, then I ate dinner, and finally followed it up with cheese cake. Well I went to bed weighing 188 and woke up 185. This is typical and I have been doing this for weeks now and worry if this is unhealthy and if there is seething medically wrong. I don't want to take off work to go see a doctor unless I have to. Advice please

    Hi, Welcome,

    Im no expert but your eating doesnt sound that bad. Maybe add fruit or maybe a healthy snack. Being 188, waking up to 185 could just be your body. Few pounds here or there I would not be concerned. I honestly dont think we weight the same through out the day.

    Hope that helped a little.
    Maybe someone has a better advice.
