If you feel good and are healthy I wouldn't pay any attention to what other people say! I personally would love to hear someone tell me I'm too skinny! It's been a long, long time! emoticon

Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. No one was there.

Congrats on your super BMI!

Forget what others think. It is not about them. It is about you and what you like. If you feel good, and you like the way you look, then let them deal with it. Did they lose the weight for you? Did they have anything to do with your success? I think not! Love them and let them think what they want. You go on living the way you want to. After all, it is your life, not theirs.

If somebody told me I was too skinny, I would say "Thank you!!!" emoticon

The journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Let go and let God.

What would I do if someone said I looked too skinny? I would probably kiss them right on the lips!!!

Honestly, if you lost weight recently it may take your body a while to adjust and look like it "belongs" at that weight. Nevertheless, go by how you feel! Congratulations on the healthy BMI!

Well, I can't relate to this "problem" yet but I will say that if you feel great and you think you look good, WHO CARES WHAT OTHERS SAY? It is often hard for others to accept us when we have made significant changes in our lives, especially in our physical appearance. Be proud of yourself and just smile at them and realize that they are more than likely jealous.



If you don't love your body now, you won't love it after you reach your goal!!!

I was told by a family member I look too skinny. I am technically not overweight by my BMI of 26. I am male feel great at 61. What do you do if people think you look too thin when you reach the proper weight range.
