I recently read an article about the worst things aboutlosing 70 pounds, and I wanted to write my own. You’d think that losing 70 pounds would be all hunky dory, but there are some downsides:
- Compliments are hard. My self esteem is changing, yes, but it’s not changing as fast as my body is. I still see myself as the fat girl, so sometimes when people compliment me, I literally do not know what to do, and I get awkward, really awkward. Haha I’m just embarrassing.
- I had to add an additional one that is related. Attention from men, another thing I’m super awkward with. I mean, I’ve always been the girl that guys just jokingly flirt with, and I’d “jokingly” flirt back…but now it’s real. I mean, I can handle my own…but in the end, I’m pretty sure I’m just awkward. haha
"I was frump girl...up until...now." haha Name that movie. :)
Proving that tunics are still in...because they have to be. I posted a picture like this in 2012. The right is me today, top is summer 2009, bottom September (I think) 2012. All the same shirt, because I have to. haha :)
In the end, the great things, obviously, outweigh the “worst” things, but the “worst” things are things that you don’t really think about. I’m sure everyone’s list is a little different.
Sometime soon, I’ll have a post about the weirdest things about losing 70 pounds. This is something I’ve been working on since I first started losing weight, and trust me, it’s a lot more interesting of a list than the “worst”.
