I kind of felt that way too. I had a bilateral mastectomy, and I do not wear my prosthetics while I am working out. This means that instead of people seeing my boobs bounce...they see my belly...oh well...my belly is now smaller. Today a woman asked me if I was an athlete!!! Made my day.

Keep up the good work.

I am not the hare. I am the tortoise. I will win my race slowly and steadily, one bite, one step at a time.

That was true of me too! I STILL sometimes feel like people are looking at me funny, but then I just push myself harder. So they can keep looking. It only makes me burn more calories! =)

MUSCLE DOES NOT WEIGH MORE THAN FAT 5 lbs = 5 lbs

5 lbs of muscle simply takes up less space than 5 lbs of fat!

If nothing tasted as good as being thin felt, no one would ever get fat!

FOOD TASTES GOOD
Let us eat it in moderation.

...but thanks to all your encouragement and my drive to embrace a healthier lifestyle, thats not a problem anymore. I go at least three times a week. I have discovered really helpful friendly people at my gym. I've even had a discussion about nutrition with one of the employees and I didn't feel like a putz. In fact, he thanked me for telling him about Sparkpeople.

So thanks to all of you for your help...and if you know someone who was embarassed as I was, just keep encouraging them!
