Hate to be stared at

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

So, I just read something interesting on a spark members blog page, don't be scared to lose weight. This got me thinking, why would anyone be scared to lose weight? We feel better about ourselves and we are healthier and tend to be more fit.

I think in the past I have been scared to lose weight. For some reason unknown, I hate it when people stare at me, and i'm afraid that if I lose the un-needed weight that people will start to look and stare.

I want people to look and be like "wow, look at her", but if it were to actually happen I think it would make me uncomfortable. The only day I haven't felt weird being stared at is on my wedding day (highest weight I have ever been).

Maybe I secretly know that if I don't look "ideal", nobody will ever stare.

Anyone else ever felt like this? This shouldn't be. Of all the things in the way of us losing weight, why does being scared have to be one? This only makes us unknowingly sabotage ourselves.

    I think people stare more now days because we have the extra weight then they would if we didn't. Society expects people to be thinner and prettier. Look at what Hollywood does. Keep up the realizations though. they help with loosing the weight
