I Lost the Weight, Now What Should I Do!?!

I recently shared with all of you that I lost some weight. I felt really good about it because I have been slim all of my life and even skinny as a kid.  I had gotten up to 170 pounds which is a huge amount since I have weighed 115 in my twenties and was steady at 145 or so in my late thirties and early forties.  I must say that I have enjoyed eating good food and when I recently got remarried I added Nigerian food to my yum list. 
So I steadily climbed to this high weight of 170 and I was closely watching my scale saying to myself I cannot go over 170 pounds!  So I stopped eating as much as before and started walking a little bit and the weight just melted off!  Great, right?  Wrong!  My husband is not so happy!  I weighed myself this morning and I’m at 159 and as far as he’s concerned, looking like a stick figure!  He actually told me just yesterday that I have “dried off”  I said, “What are you talking about, dried off?”  He said, “There’s no fat on you anywhere anymore!”  “You’re getting smaller by the day!”  With a hint of dismay in his voice.
Ladies, I have only lost about 10 or so pounds!  What’s up with this, I wonder?  Should I put the weight back on with some Dreyers French Vanilla Ice Cream with the vanilla bean specks (which I love) or even Dulce de Leche Ice Cream (any brand). Or should I go back to Appleby’s especially now that they have the 2 for $20 meal deals?  I don’t want my husband to see me as a stick figure!  What in the world to do?  Help!   😉

This is beginning to look like some kind of conspiracy on his part!!

Menopause is not nice! I weight 175. My goal is 155. I `am exercising and watching my calories. ( I eat healthy. There is a time when I get carried away!)I dated Nigerians and Ghanaian. They do like their women thick. I guess I was skinny compared to what they were accustom to. My Boy friend is American and I `am his smallest. He likes his women built like amazons.

    Thanks, @Glamulosity Diva and @NubianLockedPrincess!! I'm going to do my best to maintain my weight around 155-160. I still eat my fav foods, I just dont pig out. I dont even have the big appetite anymore. I know my hubby will get used to me at this weight because he wants me healthy. But he loves to see me eating! Waahll!

    All I can say is you need to do what's right for YOU!! You'll have to work on your man respecting the fact that added weight means added health concerns. And you for us Black women, it can be real complicated real soon when it comes to health.YUP! Naija food will def do that to you…add the pounds before you know it. But CONGRATS on the discipline! Werk!!

  15. Anna Renee says:

    I was called skinny after I dumped some very stubborn weight, but I knew better. I’m not done yet. Be proud of what you’ve achieved, and give his perception a little time to catch up with reality.

  17. Sister Anna, I’m trying to lose now and I must say there is a history of yo-yo dieting & weight loss especially after I had my third and last child. During my youth and pre-childbearing years–I was a curvacious 140 but looked 120. I just want to be 160 now –appearance wise that would be 140 but mainly I want to be healthy with more energy. You look wonderful and I’m not mad at you for your weight loss. Your husband will adjust to the new package and be thankful that he has a healthy gorgeous woman at his side!
    Peace and blessings to you both.
