Quick Question

Sunday, June 03, 2012

I KNOW THAT THIS MAY SEEM LIKE A DUMB QUESTION. BUT, HERE IT GOES..
ABOUT HOW MUCH WEIGHT DO YOU LOOSE BEFORE OTHERS START TO NOTICE.. ( I TOLD YOU .. DUMB QUESTION..LOL)
THE ONLY REASON THAT I ASK IS BECAUSE I NOTICE CHANGES IN MY CLOTHES BUT, NO ONE ELSE DOES.. I DOESN'T BOTHER ME.. BUT, IF I GAIN 7 LBS EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER NOTICES. BUT, WHEN I LOSE 7LBS NO ONE CAN SEE IT. AND I'M JUST WONDERING.. AND WHAT BETTER PLACE TO ASK THIS TYPE OF QUESTION TAN HERE?!! I'M JUST WONDERING IF PEOPLE ARE JUST MORE PRONE TO NOTICING THE NEGATIVE THINGS OVER THE POSITIVE THINGS.. (JUST A THOUGHT)
I'M NOTICING THESE CHANGES AND THATS ENOUGH TO KEEP ME GOING STRONG.. SOONER OR LATER SOMEONE WILL NOTICE :)

    Took 23 pounds for any one to notice my husband had lost that weight.When I tell my customers they look like they have lost weight , their faces light up & a big smile is given. No one has ever said anything rude to me after saying that to them. I had several say to me"" I am happy someone noticed.' I think it is all how it is said to someone.

    Believe it or not, many people feel that asking if you have lost weight implies you are fat. As if we didn't know it by looking in the mirror. I will bet people notice when you get some new clothes.

    Well for starters .. you called your question dumb twice! It was not a dumb question.. it was a great question. Because everyone losing weight.. would like to have some notice for their hard work..that is just normal!
    You said you notice in your clothes.. are you wearing the same clothes as you have been all along.. if so it is hard to tell when someone has lost weight until it is over 10-15 lbs. Bulky clothes seem to hide increments of weight gain.. and increments of weight loss. If you are wearing more form fitting clothes..it could just be that people around you are very cautious about talking about weight. Especially if the gain made you unhappy..
    And yes..some people just notice the negative. And its doubtful they will speak up to say that they are noticing...
    The biggest thing is you saying you notice. If you feel good.. that is what is important. The rest of the world will notice soon enough. It is good that you see and feel great about it. You are doing great!!!

    They may not feel comfortable saying anything but they have probably already noticed! Congrats on your weight loss!
