Was I really that big....and why shouldn't I keep going????

Monday, April 12, 2010

Yeah, Yeah, yeah....40 pounds is a lot, and I love that everyone is noticing, but there's one thing that's sorta bothering me. I've had some people say "Oh, you looks so good now, you don't need to lose anymore weight." My thing is...I'm still at least 35 pounds overweight. Was I so big in the beginning that I now look really small even though I'm technically still very large?

Maybe I was and didn't know it...and maybe I wear my weight well, but I feel like I'm still big. I have come across people who are 5-10 pounds overweight and they go on and on about how much they need to lose. Maybe it's paranoia, but I sorta feel like people are trying to deter me from continuing. Now, I know I can tell a difference in my size when I wear fitted clothes and I've gotten rid of a lot of clothes, but I stil have many articles of clothing that fit pretty well. I keep thinking that I must have been just HUGE...oh well...just maybe it's just one of those days. emoticon

    Wow 40lbs is great I think it is all up to you if your goal is lower keep losing weight if anything keep doing what you are doing when you get down far enough to where you are not really losing weight anymore then you will be good but remember this should be a lifestyle change so don't settle lose as much as you can

    I'm sort of the opposite...I've lost 30 and don't get a lot of least I'm starting to be able to tell! I know that's what's most important, but it'd be nice to hear that I'm "wowing" folks! Congrats on your 40...I know that's not an easy thing!
    For should keep going until you're in a healthy range.!
