Once again, I feel I must be the devil's advocate. If we are "getting real" about weight loss I must point out that a 200lb woman losing 30lbs has every right to feel disappointed. I need to lose at least 150lbs to be at what is considered a semi-attractive weight. If it takes me forever to lose 30lbs, why should I not be disappointed? At over 200lbs, a 30lb weight loss is negligible and is not even noticeable. Also, I am not in my 20s so I don't have the luxury of losing one 1lb a week. At that rate it will take me 5 years! Doesn't anyone see why this is disappointing? I sometimes find the attitude at this site very callous to what other people feel. Now we are being told what we can feel disappointed about and what we can't. If this offends anyone, it was not intended to. I am speaking about what I feel and my disappointment. If anyone else is happy with these results, that is wonderful for them. I will not be until I can be a 120lbs.
