  • i know how you feel. but i think the only way you can change it is to be happy with yourself. if your not happy with you, then i dont think your outlook on yourself will change either. i was 190, then went to 160, and i felt the same way as if i didnt lose anything. now that im back to 190, i feel like an idiot for not loving myself. cause when i look back now, i loved how i looked at 160.

    to the first anon, im sorry about your loss

  • Oh yeah! Get yourself a measuring tape for your body to prove that you really are shrinking! It's so encouraging to those numbers go down as well as the scales. Good job on your weight loss!! Keep up the good work, don't give up! Diets are great, try some toning exercises to help too, maybe?
