S/C/G: 158/see ticker/140

Height: 5' 5-3/4"

Default

It's hard for a thinner person to tell when a much heavier person has lost weight. My best friend, for example, I would hardly be able to tell. Your friend was over imagining, or maybe she didn't realise how heavy you were in the first place, or maybe she doesn't know that 44lbs is only x%.

OR - maybe you over hyped it to her? We can't expect others to be as sensitive about our bodies as we are

Next time, don't EAT your pain and anger, TELL HER. Say "Wow, I'm disappointed in your reaction." "Well, this is what a 44 pound loss looks like on a bigger person! And I've worked HARD at it and I'm PROUD of myself!"

It's been almost a decade of being food-conscious. The most important things I've learned are persistence and self-forgiveness.
