LOL! I just noticed as I looked at someone else's ticker that I was jealous that she weighed 153. That is only THREE pounds less than me!! Somehow I feel like my 156 is high and her 153 is low. How ridiculous!! Worse, this particular woman is shorter than me! I have no reason to be jealous what-so-ever. Not to mention I'm quite happy where I am!

Surely I'm not alone. Do tickers bring out the jealous monster for you?

Eliana, I feel like I'm following you around today!

To answer your question, YOUR ticker makes me insanely jealous! I can't remember weighing less than 159, which is THREE pounds heavier than you, and yet your 156 seems unattainable! So, no, you're not alone!

I'll probably start feeling jealous if I notice other people's tickers going down faster then mine. =)

Don't feel bad. I get jealous when I see someone has lost 30+lbs. I'm super jealous of the maintainers.

(this was on the front page... LOL)

Oh shucks, I've changed my goal weight 10 times because of other people's stats. Though one thing I have learned over the last couple years is that MANY people don't have their current weights listed. They gain back weight but refuse to change their tickers. So you can't believe everything you read.

Though I have to admit, the reason I have lowered my goal weight this time is because I found out I was actually an inch shorter than I always thought I was, so I would like to accommodate for that...

*raises hand* I've gained to 155.8 and haven't changed it. I'm giving it til my next weigh-in, and if I'm not back to 153 I'm changing it. I don't know if it's TOM gain or not. :/

I'm jealous that I'm not in the 160s yet - 169 is not only 100 lbs lost and healthy weight, it is sort of my bugaboo - I am petrified for some reason that I won't be able to make it below 170 and into my healthy weight zone. This is a painful decade.

I'm insanely jealous of those at or near one-derland, which seems unattainable right now. It's my own fault though, so I try not to wallow in it.

YES!!!

But it's weird. When I see someone's in
the 120's, I'm fine. But if I see someone's
in the 130's, I get jealous!

This is probably because I've been working
so hard for so long to get to the 130's.

I'm not so sure I get jealous.. but I look at those who have lost the same amount or more than I need to and wish I could see inside their brain and follow exactly what they did because it worked for them it has to work for me. Or I get pissed at myself when I look at those who I know from last year who have had these amazing losses since then and here I sit bigger than I started last year. <sigh>

Jealous - you bet!! I'm as green as grass when I see someone in the 210's let alone in onederland. I find myself thinking - Oooooooooooo, I would give anything to be at that weight.

Nice thread!! Good to know I'm not the only one.

Wistful, rather than jealous.

Nose pressed against the glass, outside, looking in. How can they maintain a weight that is 20 pounds lower? I know all the things I don't eat anymore, at all, & how much exercise I do, and what kind. And the difficult social situations that I have to deal, while still having a social life & not annoying the heck out of everyone I know -- and I am not particularly gregarious, either. Those other maintainers have to be that much better at it.

Or they don't have my specific psychological baggage & consequently, an exaggerated wariness of eating disorderish behavior.

I don't know. But I'm me & they're them. Maybe if they had charge of my body they'd run it better. Or maybe not.
