Living with negative comments...

I have people making jokes about my weight loss and fitness, telling me I’ll blow away in a light breeze, and am too skinny, etc. Very annoying, especially when I’m not even talking about my fitness journey much to anyone. Guess it’s something i have to live with. Anyhow, I’m proud of my accomplishments. Down 35lbs and BF down 7pts. bra580wil5m3.jpeg

    I'd just blow them off and know that they really need to work on deeper issues like compassion and manners. Trust me, your journey is a lot easier than theirs and you are so far ahead of them. You look great!

    People hate change no matter how they may act. The same people who were constantly telling me I should lose weight are the same ones saying I should stop now that I'm close to my goal. I honestly think a lot of people don't like seeing others succeed. Sad as it is.

    Anyways dude you look amazing! Be proud of yourself and realize that secretly most of the people hating on you wish they could do what you've done. I know I wish I looked like that with my shirt off

    Same. That’s when I took a moment and thought “good thing I’m now on a journey in accomplishing specific goals”. 😁

    I don't think most people making comments like that believe they are annoying you; I think they believe they are complimenting you. And like someone else said, if you were overweight a long time, they are not used to seeing you slim and fit, and apparently they don't know how else to express that. You are hardly going to blow away in the wind, of course, but you look like you put a lot of work into getting fit! Great job!

    You SHOULD be proud! You look fantastic!

    I suppose you do just need to ignore the comments, but I suspect they will taper off in time, as people get used to what you look like now.

    I'm sure the comments will stop once people are used to you being smaller.
    You look great! :)

    Thanks for the positive feedback. Sometimes I question myself when I here the comments. I feel great so that should be what counts the most. Will look to ignore the neysayers.

    Don’t question yourself because of negative people. What matters most is YOUR opinion and how you feel. You look awesome by the way!! Congrats on achieving your goals!

    You look great! Some people just always need to say something. All you can do is ignore them. It’s aggravating, though.

    You look amazing! Unfortunately sometimes people need to say those types of things to make themselves feel better about their own situation- even if they don't realize they are doing so. Congrats on all your hard work!

    New here and stopped to read your post. 1st, you look amazing! 2nd people have comments when you are overweight as well as when you lose weight. Now that you look phenomenal, it's some obvious jealous people saying you will blow away. Keep it up. You have just encouraged me.

    You are not too thin! You are a healthy thin!
    People really do hate change even when its none of their biz!

    I suspect, as someone else has said, people are trying to pay you a compliment and resort to banter and whilst I cover their own awkwardness. I suggest you smile along with them and take the comments with a pinch of salt. You look fit and lean and not the slightest bit as though you are going to be blown away - congratulations on your great health and fitness

    You look great and nobody can take away your satisfaction. Keep marching forward.

    I also think it is meant as a many posts here about people being mad that someone comments on their weight loss. Be grateful that it is not acceptable for people to say--"wow--you sure have packed on the pounds" or something like that when you were overweight. You do look amazing.
