What nobody tells you about losing weight

    How I use to stand to the side of my coworkers' cubicles to hide my body... I found myself still doing that behavior even after I had lost over 200 pounds... I echo a lot of what was said above. The other interesting thing was getting negative reactions from people who felt bad about themselves after my dramatic weight loss...

    Saving your armpits is much more difficult, because there's more gap and the razor doesn't fit properly so you can't shave as closely.

    THIS absolutely... I had to completely re-learn how to shave my armpits...ridiculous!!

    *lifts arms, feels armpit... takes note. ;)

    OMG!!! So true!! LOL

    How much more work it is to burn the same amount of calories at a lower weight :(

    Don't I know that. always getting used to eating less and less.

    I used to hate people who said they just had 10 pounds to lose. well, I have hit the point where I am just under 10 pounds to a normal BMI. Putting foot in mouth now

    Yes! I'm just about in the same place (12 pounds to go). When you have 80 to lose, as I did when I started, 10 seems like NOTHING. Now it seems like Mt. Everest!

    The thing is though, you started at a very high weight, you weren't only 10 lbs overweight. If that was all you had to lose then yes, I'll kick you in the *kitten* for complaining about it but that's not the case. You have a right to gripe about that last little hill you want to overcome. Cannot wait until the day I'm standing next to you and b:tching about my last 10!

    that your shorts will actually ride up more, because there is less thigh chub rub to hold them in place.
