4. What are (or were) your fears about weight loss?
Just that I wouldn’t be able to lose the weight and I would be disappointed in myself and not feel as good as I know I can at a lower weight. All those feelings of weakness, guilt, anger and shame would come bubbling up despite knowing better. The same ones that occur when our house is not as clean as we would like it to be or don’t get decorations put up for every holiday like our neighbor does. Feeling that we are inadequate. We know those feelings are stupid, but we feel them just the same.

    Very well said. I think I had the most fear of disappointing myself. Then it was wondering if people would treat me differently when I lost weight. Some did, some didn't, but the point is, I was and am comfortable in my own skin and know that it is none of my business what others may or may not think . . . . only how *I* feel.

    Very well put and I think we can all relate to this.
