Spending the money to buy a new wardrobe does make me feel guilty at times but my husband tells me to just take it as a reminder of the 50 lbs I've lost. I agree that sitting on certain seats is more uncomfortable! (for me it's my back bone touching the back of hard chairs that bugs me sometimes haha)

All worth it though!

I would agree on the loose skin.

The expense and stress of having to buy new, smaller clothes.

I hate "wasting" all those bigger clothes in my closet -- and I still don't enjoy shopping as I am still not a "perfect size anything." And I hate the expense of it all.

For me, I find hard wooden chairs and steel bleachers so much more uncomfortable, now that I've lost my built-in seat padding! Oh well, the discomfort reminds me of all I've accomplished!!

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

Congrats on the self esteem! Congrats on the amazing weight loss! I agree with loose skin...but then to get rid of heavy, fat rolls I think it is better, and I would rather try to hide loose skin than rolls of fat! emoticon

What things do you consider weight loss 'negatives' but couldn't really care less about now that you''ve shifted gears towards a healthy lifestyle?

Mine would be the excess skin. I used to be really conscious about it and I'd choose to wear long-sleeved tops in the height of tropical heat. Now that I'm getting more comfortable in my own skin (loose, wrinkly bits and all), I don't care so much anymore. At least I got rid of the 150-lb monkey on my back! Just bought a bathing suit and when I looked into the mirror, I saw my toned shoulders instead of my jiggly batwings - it was definitely a body-love moment!
