It was my understanding that maintenance would be just like losing except that you get more calories to play with. No one told me that actually, you don't get more calories to play with - unless you earn them through exercise.

Nobody told me that losing 50 pounds would be something I couldn't mention in public without being told that I was fatshaming people and triggering people. Um, you do you. This was my project this year, and for that matter, I'm STILL fat, so it's not like I'm lording it over anyone. But that's my project this year and I'll talk about it if people ask me what I did during the pandemic.

Your body will become less squishy but somehow more comfy to live in! 😊

I never really thought about weightloss extra skin would be a deterrent for me. It didn't bother my husband. And it really wasn't noticible to other people, but it was flabby and actually uncomfortable with wearing pants or even sitting in some positions. I'm not sure what to do. I know that, medically, I'm healthier at less weight. I breathe better, sleep better, and generally feel better. At 300 lbs I was pushing into diabetes and high blood pressure. At 235 those seemed to be normal levels again.
I'm not looking to be sexy or get attention. I want to be healthier and not a glutton. I want to be a good example for my children and to have more energy and stamina to live daily life, of which I was certainly gaining.
I'm rambling a bit now - I apologize.
I'm not sure that I've ever heard that after losing a significant amount of weight that I would feel less confident and uglier. But knowing that I'm healthier is probably going to be the prime motivation for me if I can get a hold of this. I crossed up over to 260 this morning.
