100 lb. Club - Sometimes I wish my brain would get onboard

I am a recent occupant to this website and thought I would share my latest struggle. I have lost my first twenty pounds and find myself disgusted with my body. I thought my fat would shrink away a little and I would be left with some loose skin in the end but not too terribly much. Well the fat is going away, but the skin has yet to shring at all, my fat on my belly just keeps getting jigglier and I find myself getting embarrased when I go running cause I jiggle more now that i ever did before, my wife tells me I look beautiful but I feel more disgusting with every pound I loose.

Hey! :wel3fc:

Are you a male or a female? You could try something like Spanx or workout clothes that would provide some support to your midsection while running. This is often much more comfortable.

You can expect that as you lose, your skin will take longer to catch up. No one can say how long that might take or how much loose skin you might still have.

For now, focus on weight loss! :yes: You can also find out more about body issues on this 3FC forum:


Good luck!

Oh honey. :hug:
First - :congrat: on 19 pounds lost so far. :woohoo:

Second - patience. And then...more patience. The alternative is to what...give up? Do you really think you will be happier at a higher weight?

Don't be so hard on yourself. Just keep doing what you have been doing. You may never be entirely happy with your body - but you will be amazed at what it can do if you keep up the eating right and the exercise.

and 3rd? :wel3fc:
