Another fear of mine, which seems to be a common theme on this thread is the sagging skin. I have been overweight all of my adult life so I am pretty sure my skin will not just snap back. Maybe I should see if my health insurance covers any kind of plastic surgery, lol.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

It's not exactly a "terror", mainly because I don't really beleive it will happen, but it sure would stink if it did....

For the longest while now, I thought if I would just get thin again, I would be happy and everything would feel complete. What a bummer it would be to have all this flab off my frame and not be bouncy and joyful about it.

Or worse, go through this whole long ordeal to lose weight and improve my health, only at the end, to have gotten cancer or hit by a truck or something.

Yeah, I suppose we all entertain the "what-if's" in life from time to time, that's just natural. But everyday, everyone faces challenges (big or small), so why borrow trouble?

I think what's really important is to focus on the positive. I love watching my scale needle moving to the left, and it would be so sad if I was preoccupied with worry about saggy skin that I wasn't happy about losing weight.

For whatever happens next, I will cross that bridge when I get to it...

Skinny Terror #6: that my face which is now a nice size, will look too skinny and the skin will sag and I'll look 63 instead of 33 (I'm 43).

Fears:
Looking older, because I won't have so much fat plumping up my face!
Having sagging skin, especially on my belly.
Not being happy with my body.
Becoming obsessive with food/ exercise
Becoming a skinny b**** instead of the jolly fat girl

But all nothing compared to how good I feel about myself without all the weight!

I worry that I won't recognize myself. I know its a slow process which would give me time to adjust to my new look, but sometimes I think I'll wake up, look in the mirror and no longer see ME. I mean....I've been overweight and looking like this forever!

My biggest fear (although this is not stopping me) is that I will lose 100 lbs and then the next day (of whatever short time frame) I will become pregnant and use that "eating for two" excuse. Luckily my insurance starts next month so I plan to take care of having any more children. 3 children and 3 step-children is ENOUGH!

Live well, laugh often, love much.

There is a really good documentary running on MTV called MTV True Life - I hate my body.

It profiles 2 people, a man and a woman, who both lost TREMENDOUS amounts of weight. One thorugh gastric bypass and one through lap band. The man had a ton of excess skin. So bad he had to bind it. The woman was just obsessive and wasn't satisfied with her body and kept comparing herself to everybody - it was putting a huge strain on her marriage. Try to watch this episode if you can.

I lost 75 pounds 8 or so years ago and gained back 45. My worst nightmare came true. I want to lose 20 of that 45...but I don't know if I'm older or what, it just isn't happening. I'm not as disciplined as I was when I lost the 75. And what I found when I was 75 pounds lighter - it still wasn't thin enough. I still wasn't pretty enough. Weight wasn't the magic bullet I thought it would be. My life didn't transform and that was a huge, disappointing wake up call.

I am scared of sagging skin, too. I had a hysterectomy and they cut through muscle, which left this pouch of saggy skin, that does go up and down in size when I change weight, but it doesn't tone. It has no feeling either. I am afraid it will still be there hanging down. Making me look like I have a huge tummy still.

saggy skin due to the fact that I have 190lbs to lose. I knows its my own fault that its this bad but it does weigh in the back of my mind. I'm trying to be proactive to prevent as much as I can, but I also started saving up for a surgery if I need it.

Another in my inner self. She scares me to death. I hear it everyday, "you're the fat one, You've always been the fat one". She isn't that bad all the time, but she's been there so long that I'm learning to tune her out. Once she's gone, I'll just have skin to worry about.

I love topics like this - helps me know I'm not alone in all my inner ramblings and fears. :)

Like so many others have said, I'm afraid of losing my identity ... which, to date, has been "the fat one." What happens when I'm just "the one not quite as hot as the others?" My weight (and its related struggles) has made me who I am. So what happens when I get to where I want to be on the scale and don't have that battle raging anymore? Or, worse, what happens when I get there and the battle rages on in spite of myself? What if I'm still not happy when I get there?

But, again like everyone else said, this is internal stuff that we have to work through while we're on this mission ... all those hours on the treadmill are like our therapy. :)

I'm afraid of the attention that I will get, I have a skin graph on my cheek and that alone makes me very depressed, thus the weight. So I'm thinking that even if I am skinny I wont be pretty am not entitled to be thin. emoticon

I think that my biggest fear is that my personality will change. I mean, I would hope I would have more confindence, which would be a good thing, but I don't want to become snobby/rude. I guess I'm also afraid of gaining everything back, but I have to lose it first!

I've been there. I lost a total of 90 pounds when I was a late teen/early 20s and had to go through a lot of those things that were mentioned. I went from being the fat friend that guys used to get to my hot friends to getting tons of attention. I would always wonder 'what if they knew what I used to look like?' I was terrified that my new friends and boyfriends would find out how big I was. I kept all my fat pictures hidden and refused to let anyone see them. I was scared to death to let anyone see my body, it wasn't that bad but I had magnified the flaws in my mind. Now that I've gained all of it back (plus some) I know better what to prepare myself for, but I still have some of those fears. I think more than anything the attention. But that's not a reason to hold you back. Big girls know how to develop their personality and character to get people to see past their outside, so we're more fun, more well-rounded (no pun intended!) and have a lot going for us!

I had never thought of this before-not in so many words anyway. I guess I have many fears of being skinny. The biggest being I am going to "get skinny" and my life won't be perfect. In reality, I understand that being thin isn't going to make my life any easier. But I think as "the fat chick" I have always imagined how much easier life would be if I were thin.

Another fear I have is that I will lose the weight and look in the mirror and still see the old, fat me. I have body image issues all ready (something I am working on) but I am afraid I will always be the fat girl in my mind.

Great topic. I share a lot of the same skinny fears. My husband also tries to sabotage me at times but he denies it if I call him on it.

What if I never lose weight? What if I gain it back (again)? What if my personality changes? I also think I sabotage myself sometimes because I'm not sure I'll be able to handle being thin and fit.

I'm afraid that I wont recognize myself.
I'm afraid that when I look in the mirror I wont register that it is me looking back at myself and that I wont like what I see.

That I finally lose the weight and still feel bad about myself or think i'm still fat. That would stink.
And fear that I lose my chest. emoticon

I am really afraid that my husband will treat me differently. I have always been a big girl for as long as he has known me, he is a big guy too. I know that he loves me and wants me to be successful.. but he has a competitive streak, and also can be very insecure. Already he has done a few small things to "sabotage" me.. but I just pretend not to notice. Ok what I am really fearing is ...can my marriage survive if I loose the weight????

oh my...skinny fears? how about the one where I never get skinny?? Like no matter how hard I'll try, someday I won't be able to break through? lol i know it's not possible, but people coming back from the dead aren't possible and still everyone is afraid of zombies, right?

more realisticly...the loss of my already pretty small boobs. They're not even leaving me at the same rate! And the attention from guys, somehting i've never really gotten. I'm good with guys, not nervous or anything, just not used to guys that want me 'that' way :)

I fear the loose skin also but I know I self sabotage because of my anxiety about being different when Im thinner.

My main worry is what if when I am this weight I get more attention that I have ever had before and suddenly guys that the bigger me would never have had talk to her find me desirable. What if I leave the man I love and adore for someone who wouldnt have looked twice at me before because its new.

I couldnt bear that, it terrifies me. I havent ever been thin but I think I have been attractive if that makes sense. So im just worried about that grass is always greener mentality.

There is a great quote about that, 'the grass isnt greener on the other side, its just different grass.'

I know what I look like skinny, and I sincerely loved how I looked back then (lol, only two years ago), but my biggest fear is falling back into the same cycle of depression and eating over some random thing and gaining weight again. Nobody irl really supports me.

(My mother supports me from a distance, but her attitude is "You're an adult now, I can't be telling you what you should or shouldn't eat," so she just watches with a blank look if she catches me overeating. I know it's true, but come on, Ma! At least remind me of what I'm ruining by eating that extra forkful of whatever. You know, encourage me.)

There are almost as many fears as there are perks at times with me. I fear not being able to 'hide' behind the fat anymore and having to face the world as a person who people look at. I fear that the work that it takes to get skinny wont equal the feeling I picture myself having when I get there. As much as I want things to change for the better for me, I fear that change as well.

I also wonder if this new me will still have empathy and understanding like this fat me does.

Isnt it odd that I feel like just because Im losing fat, that I lose who I am with it? Since when did I become the fat that Im trying to lose???

Wow, interesting topic, terror? To finally prove that being thin won't necessarily make everything in my life better.

OMG I am SO worried about loose skin!!! I am 25 and wondering if I should worry about that?!
Other than that, I don't have any other worries!
Being skinny may change how I look, but I am a strong woman and I know who I am. Being skinny wouldn't change that. :)

being overweight protects me from being fully awake, metaphorically speaking. i think i have begun to combat this fear by not waiting until the weight is gone to begin living fully.

skinny terror in general... the thought of the tummy tuck, breast lifts, etc that I will probably need when the weight is finally off. skinny terror that might be keeping me from my goal? hmm.. maybe that I will end up super fit and sexy and my husband won't be able to keep up or maintain his weight loss along with me.. I think it'd be hard to be in a relationship if you don't feel attracted to the other person anymore. I know that I'm attracted to him now, but things might change if my body changes you know? I dunno maybe I'm neurotic..!!

wow! this is a great question! i think i'll still be in a happy place just happier the weight is gone! but i just hope the male attention doesn't go to my head, espicially since i'm married. cause almost every woman loves the attention most of the time but not all the time. and i hope i exercise enough not to have loose skin on my arm and lower belly! wow! didn't think about this before ,now i need to huh!
