Well, that's why you bought a dozen, isn't it? Glad to hear your progress! You've got a wonderful attitude.

Go Mystic Rain! Really enjoyed reading your posts, and of course your pics too. Just something about a growing girl that is nice to see and imagine. Love gals with good appetites too! Can't help it, just makes me feel good. Hope you are happy with the results. Wish I could see more.

Thanks.

And a fan of neither. I don't like football, or most sports.

Another month gone, and an additional 10.5 lbs. I am now 248.5.

Wish I could say it was without consequence, but in recent weeks, I've developed symptoms of carpal tunnel in both hands. I'm not sure if it was already an underlying problem and gaining all that weight aggravated it, or it developed as a direct cause of the gain.

At any point, I have weakness in my wrists and hands, tingling and numbness sensations in my thumb and first three fingers at any given time. Holding objects for too long, especially if they're made of metal, produce the same results, and my whole hand becomes tingling and numb then. I'm wearing splints at night, but while they help some, it's just not as much as I'd like. And wearing them during the day at work is impossible with the kind of work I do.

Pain is inconsistant, and tends to come and go. So usually I don't have to take an aspirin for it or anything. It really hinders my performance, and I value my hands; I do everything with them. Which is why I'm so disheartened by this development.

I don't know what else to do except to continue what I've been doing and maybe find supports that I can wear at work.

Start taking vitamin B-6 daily. I don't know if this will work for you but I have heard wonders from other folks. You'll start to notice a big difference after about a week. You will need to keep taking it daily if it is working for you. Good luck!

Default carpal tunnel

Are you, perhaps, sitting differently at the computer keyboard than you used to? I've never heard of carpal tunnel having any direct relation to weight gain (or loss) ... but posture makes the biggest difference.

I doubt CTS is related to your weight or gain, unless you have repetitive hand to mouth self feeding syndrome. Otherwise its from all the computer work and typing you do Im sure. I have the same issue.

Well, that's what I was told, and also I looked up the risk factors, and it listed overweight being one of them. However, I don't think that's really true myself. I think it more that at work I'm doing so much with my hands in repetitive motions, and I've been doing that kind of work for almost six years.

Then I'm on the computer for five-six hours after work at home. Which doesn't really help much, but I do take frequent breaks. I've been trying to argue against a co-worker and friend, whom was the one that told me, that it's from gaining so much weight versus the constant strain on my wrists from all I do at work, where lifting 35-40lb stock is part of it. She thinks it's directly related to my weight, but I don't think so, which is why I said I wasn't sure in my above post.

You might want to post in the Health Forum, and see what the folks there have to say.

Bleah. I can't imagine how gaining weight could cause a problem with your wrist musculature. It seems like being fat is blamed for everything from alshiemers to high taxes.

Being fat can cause sore throats, pregnancy, pink eye, erectile dysfunction, the black plague, rickets, terminal dandruff, hiccups, botched facial peels, chronic dry eye, bed wetting, night blindness, tennis elbow, club foot, driving and eating with amnesia for the event, and/or priapism.

Great work there MR! Nice belly growth there!
You may have gotten an answer about the Carple tunnel already but, I had a numbness in my outside fingers due to a shoulder injury. Have you lifted anything and put it on your shoulders to carry it?

A little update. I'm now closing in on 260lbs at 256lbs. An 8.5lb gain in over a month. Thanksgiving I'm sure will fill in that four pound gap nicely.

My appetite is huge, and even after a whole frozen pizza, a pack of toasted peanut butter crackers, and a giant Starcrunch cookie for dinner, it feels like I've not eaten at all. I'm still very hungry.

Loved hearing your story!
I think it's great that you stopped the crazy counting.
I remember when I tried doing that for a little while, I look back now and it practically seemed mentally ill of me. I was just never happy keeping track of all of that and limiting myself, hitting my "limit" for the day early then just starving the rest. It was awful.
Now I'm happy to just not care about that stuff anymore.
Just eating whatever you like, guilt free, is so heavenly.

I can also level with that appetite dealio. I'm not even that big, but I don't know, in the last month or so my appetite practically doubled. It seems that way to me anyway. It's odd eating dinner and being hungry like a half hour later.
I hope I don't have worms or something. haha

Not much of an update to report. I reached 260 at the end of November/early December, and I think now I have bottomed out, so to speak. Nothing more is being added even though I haven't changed anything. So I guess 260ish is my max/ideal weight then.

That's okay, though. If I stay this way, it's fine by me because I don't want to be too much heavier.
