What nobody tells you about losing weight

    People wanting to give their opinion or get my opinion more.

    Giving me their opinion- like I think you have lost too much weight even though I haven’t, that I ate too much/too little, or the I’m surprised you eat blank and lose weight type comments.

    Get my opinion- do you think I should this? Or what do you do to lose weight? Eating healthy and exercise is never good enough.

    Also buying clothes and shaving is a lot different

    I carry a lot of weight in my cheeks, and I'm starting to look a little bit bobblehead-y because everywhere else is shrinking, lol. I'll take it, keeps the wrinkles at bay.

    Ugh - wish I had this problem. Overall I do look better 40+ pounds lighter, but my face doesn't have the fullness it used to. It looked good full...not as gaunt. Not that I want to go back but.... *sigh*

    Are you still in a deficit? I have heard that the face looks less gaunt after maintaining for a while with glycogen replenishing at maintenance calories.

    Nobody told me I could be within 40 pounds of goal weight and start sabotaging myself.

    I am completely flummoxed about it, as I have NO idea why my psyche is starting to fight me. Seriously, every pound is a major battle right now... not because I don't know how or what to do - but because I simply am not DOING it, consistently - even though I KNOW what needs to happen for the weight to come off.


    I have done this for years so I can relate. I don't know what it will take for you, but I just got sick and tired of doing things half @ssed.. working so hard and then undoing my own efforts, so I just buckled down hard this last year.

    lol.. I just realized when I typed Azzed with an @, I linked to someone's old profile.

    Nobody told me I would be grossed out by my veiny feet! I'm exaggerating a bit but I was shocked by all the veins the other day LOL!
    For me it’s my neck.

    Forearms and hands.

    I wouldn't say I'm grossed out by all that veininess, exactly, but it's certainly... disconcerting!

    Hands! I have old lady veiny hands! But...I guess I am an old lady, lol.

    My hands aren't too bad yet, I see the tendons more but no veins yet! I think maybe running is making the veins in my feet pop more too.

    I wonder if I will become more veiny as I lose weight or get older. My feet have always had a decent amount of fat. When I wear strappy shoes I always get little pudges of fat poking out, lol. They don't bother me too much because it's not really noticeable unless you look closely, but I definitely am not veiny at all.
