Congratulations on your weight loss. You have done incredibly! What you might not be thinking about is that anyone who knows you and sees you in your suit probably will be thinking about your incredible weight loss and how amazing you are for having accomplished that. So, in actuality, you could be right. Those people who you suspect are saying things about you could very well be, but it's very likely that are saying very nice things about you. :)

If it is to be, it is up to me!

Wow, way to go Daisy!!! you have accomplished one of the hardest things to do LOSE WEIGHT. Be proud of yourself. Put that swim suit on and keep your head held high you so deserve it.
You would feel worse if you were heavy again. Who cares what people think. You accomplished an amazing thing.

That is an amazing accomplishment. You should not diminish its momentum with worrying about the trivial stuff. Enjoy your bikini or swimsuit or whatever. Other than surgery the only solution would be to put all that weight back on. You'd definitely feel worse then. It's why you made the change in the first place. So enjoy your time girl! You deserve it.

Awesome loss!! You know, everytime we compare ourselves to others, we lose. That's because we will always find someone else we think looks better. Be proud of your accomplishment. Girl, I have sooo many varicose veins and cellulite, I'm sure people who care would put me in a dark room. But I refuse to let that stop me from having a good time swimming. Don't let the media define who you should be. Real women aren't scrawny, airbrushed, china dolls. Love yourself, warts and all!! emoticon

OMG ! emoticon I saw the incredible accomplishment you have done. You should feel very happy you are even at this stage. Take it one step at a time so far you have done the hardest now all you have to do is all extras. Do not worry about what other people say or think. Have fun with your hard work enjoy it and if at any moment you do decide to have some surgery hey don't feel bad. Its only a little prize for all the hard work you did. emoticon

emoticon on your weight loss. I would not care what others think b/c you don't know them nor will you ever talk to them or hear what people are saying about you if they do talk. You just ignore that little voice in your head. I mean do you go around talking about other people? If you do, does that affect how others feel? No, of course not. Don't stress and enjoy your accomplishments. I used to care b/c my mom used to tell me I should care what others think. But I learned that people really don't care and most times don't even notice you. So why should we care what others may or may not be thinking of us.

wow! Daisy, you have done great! I understand where you are coming. I hate the thought of a bathing suit. Just look for the right style for you and enjoy the warm weather and swimming.

I went to the beach this weekend and I didn't wear a swimsuit because I was embarassed. I have to tell you, there were people there with swim suits and bikinis on who probably should have been more worried than I was. But you know what, good for them for having a higher self esteem and not caring about what other people think. Sometimes we are way too hard on ourselves. Cut yourself some slack and be proud you have dropped so much weight! I would be rocking a bikini anyway just because I would be so proud of myself!!

I sympathise I too feel self conscious in a swim suit - however not as bad as I did when I was 20 pounds heavier.
I finf tankini bikini's are the most flattering and I've fot to the stage now - where okay I'm still overweight but when I go to Orlando in 3 weeks time - I'm flaunting it - I've seen worse bodies in swiming costumes....

You are in control of how you feel. When I went on a cruise I saw all shapes, sizes, and ages in bikinis and they all felt great. It's up to you. No one can make you feel bad but yourself.

I personally think we worry to much about what people are thinking when they really aren't focused on us at all! That is the self-centered egotistical part of us all....and we all do it! I keep telling myself..."you are not Angelina Jolie...people are not gawking at you...YOU ARE FINE!". This really helps me put things into perspective and lets me enjoy myself whether I look good in a bathing suit or not. You are an amazing person to have taken the first step in getting healthing let alone going the lengths you have to look and feel so darn good. WHO CARES what people think!!!! They have no clue where you have come from therefore they haven't earned the right to judge emoticon You are beautiful...absolutely beautiful so stay focused on that!

Be grateful for your weight loss. I spent my younger years in a swim suit and no longer feel comfy in one due to all the excess skin (due to age and sun damage) so I just enjoy myself ....... clothed. As I say - I'm sparing the world having to look at me in a swimsuit.
Congrats on your weight loss.....that is amazing!!
