One of the other venders a few offices down from me brought some rather yummy looking muffins to me this morning. I told him "wow, those sure look carb-o-licious!" He said yep, they're filled with carbs, but they're so good! Then he caught on. "Oh, you're still doing your diet thing? WHY? You look great! You're going to look anorexic soon! You'll turn sideways and we won't see you!" I thanked him for offering me the muffins, and we both went about our day..

What's bugging me is this: I'm wearing size 12 jeans right now. They're extremely loose and I'm pretty sure I could get into 10's but I just haven't gone shopping yet so can't confirm. For the sake of argument, let's say I'm a solid size 10. Since when is a size 10 on someone 5'6" anorexic looking? Yes, I'm sure he was joking (for lack of a better word) but then again I've gotten "you're looking too skinny" comments from others too.

I'm not even sure what I'm trying to ask. I think in part I still have a bad case of the fat goggles going on. But I also see specific areas that I'd like to rid myself of excess. I don't know who to trust, when it comes to how I look. Including myself and the naked pictures I take of myself. Even though the scale is reflecting a significant loss and measurements are reflecting significant inches lost, I still don't see it in a side by side naked picture comparison..

Gah! Just a rant without any clear direction.

On a positive note, I'm > < this close to the 140's!!..

Don't take anyone else's opinions about the matter except what the facts are. The FACTS are that your BMI has JUST gotten into the healthy range. The FACTS are that "Underweight" BMI does not start until you get to 18. If you want to lose some more, you keep on going, lady! =)..

I am 5 foot 6, have been fluctuating between 162-164 lbs and wear from a size 8 to a size 12 depending.

That being said, everyone says I look way too skinny, which is silly BUT they know the 329 lb me so if you take that as a comparison, I think that's what throws people off.

People will always have something to say...don't let it get to you..

I used to be a solid size 10, and I always thought I was huge. I stated this program as a solid 20. Wow, 10 is small to me now. I truly believe that he was trying to be complimentary. I hope someone says that to me some day. You have come a long way, and you deserve to be complimented...

I have heard the same thing...don't lose anymore, you look fine. Well, when I'm naked looking in the mirror, I still want to lose 10 so that's what I'm going to do. I know what I want to be and how I feel, so don't let anyone tell you what to lose but you...

I thought your post said CRAB-O-LICIOUS MUFFINS and I thought "OMG, someone is making muffins out of the Maryland Crab Soup!!!"..

I have a good friend who got gastric bypass surgery. He posts his progress on Facebook and was so excited to post that he was finally below 200 lbs. the other day. Big mistake - he got about 1/3 positive responses - way to go! And the other 2/3 were, "OMG quit losing - you're getting too skinny - please don't let yourself get too skinny - you're looking gaunt." I can only imagine how awful some of those comments made him feel. The truth is that he looks great but he really does need to lose some more fat - gain some more muscle. But people don't get it - especially those who haven't ever had a weight problem.

They'll get used to it and get over it. Keep up your HARD work and remember your personal goals!..
