I know this has been done before, but so has everything else. :p So if you want to add some funny little weight loss annoyances, just for fun, please do. ;)

At the gym, whenever my buddy comes up to talk to me I drop my head phones (the old-fashioned kind, not ear buds) down around my neck. This has never been a problem before but here lately as I run they bounce on my collar bones and it hurts! I can't keep them there anymore. That pad of fat was apparently good for something! :D

My DH & I like to play wrestle once in a while. Well, I used to be able to kind of hold my own when I weighed 60 pounds more than him, but now I have no chance in heck, and that ticks me off!! :lol:

All my shoes are too big! This is supposed to be a good thing, right? Well, I wear an 11W, and they are too wide. Still can't fit an 11 regular or a 10W, so I'm stuck sloshing around in my shoes for a couple more months.

And why my feet not my belly? If someone could put in a word with the weight loss gods, please? :D

I've always had this problem! LOL! Yes, why the feet and FINGERS?! At 235 my feet had finally widened to almost normal, and now I'm back to AAAA narrow. :rolleyes: I really don't care how thin my feet are. My finger was a 5 at my high weight and now we're down 4.25. If only my belly were that petite!

The feeling that clothes usually just don't...quite...fit...perfectly. Either they're just a little snug or you're hitching them up all the time! Upon reaching goal, I will take great satisfaction in consistent fit again.

I am cold. Very cold. And it is wintertime in Wyoming. :( That nice layer of fat I used to have kept me much more comfy in the winter weather.

No, I don't want it back.

I am a side sleeper, and now my knees knock together and its uncomfortable and pokey. I've started having to sleep on my tummy. Also, I keep banging various bones with my husband (which sounds naughty but that is totally NOT what I was getting at. Just now anyway lol). And finally, droopy-drawers underpants. I have bought new sets of undies twice already. The size I am in now still stays up at my waist just fine, but it the butt area is all sorts of saggy. I refuse to buy a size smaller yet though.

Also, I fifth the cold thing. Being cold SUCKS especially when I was used to being hot ALL the time.

I'm cold all the time too. And my rings are too big. I'm waiting to have them resized because I want to lose more weight. My necklaces that hung correctly around my fat neck now droop too low. I had a bunch of really nice 2X clothes that I really, really liked but I had to give them all away. My large relatives descended on my Bins O'Too Big Clothes like a pack of starving hyenas and now whenever we have a party, I'm freaked out because everyone (well, all the women) are wearing my clothes. :-) And the worst part is NO ONE wants to hear me complain about ANY problem related to losing weight.

The cold thing year round. Even when it's nearly 100 degrees I have to wear a sweater when I go into a store.

Also, when I go to the movies by the time it's over my backside is so sore. I lost my padding back there!

Pacifica Bee, some side sleepers who have lost a lot use a pillow between their knees so they don't knock together.

I am one of those pillow-between-the-knees girls, but I did that even at my high weight, it's much easier on my lower back and pelvis and I get out of alignment less frequently that way.

I HATE being between sizes! My pants are either too loose (and look dumb and baggy) or I get muffin top. Grr....

Have you considered thongs? Since there's no real butt, they can't sag. :)



:o I know...280 lb chick suggesting thongs. I wear 'em. Laugh away. It's less material for my @$$ to eat. :D :D :D

Man, my bones are poking out uncomfortably, too. The knees knobbing together during sleep and my tailbone/butt area all the TIME when sitting. Even on cushions!

OK, that made my laugh out loud. I can't wear thongs though; I always feel like it's rubbin me raw in places that ought not be raw. :o

I haven't lost nearly as much weight as you ladies however, I was wearing my biggest pair of pants earlier this week (were snug earlier this month) and was running down the hall with my hands full for a meeting. I had to set everything down and hike up my pants in a not-so-ladylike way before I sat down or I would have had serious plumbers butt going on. I'm sure the VP in the room was questioning my sanity. It was kinda comical in a "what the crap?!?" kinda way.

Have you tried the 100% cotton ones with the elastic wrapped by the fabric? Those don't rub.

No. I'd hate to spend money on them if they didn't work out. And I sure wouldn't be bold enough to return something that's been lodged between my cheeks!

Besides, my husband would wonder where the heck the rest of my undies were! He (and I) prefers me in boy short style underwear; he likes the way it hugs my butt. :) Way more than you probably wanted to know but there ya go! :D

Some times when I'm talking and I gesture with my hands my ring flys off. LOL I've put it in a drawer for safe keeping The last time I put it in a drawer they had gotten too tight.

I paid to have my wedding band made larger- and now I have to wear it on my middle finger because I lost weight in '10. I'm still glad I lost a bit of weight, though.

My mom got me a ring for my Sweet Sixteen and it was too small at the time -- now it's too big! Glad I never got it resized or it would be even bigger. I've also noticed I bruise more easily than I used to. I'm a bit of a klutz and things hurt more without the extra padding!

This is the coldest winter I've had, ever. Also, the knee thing. The inside of knees are suddenly concave, and they're driving me crazy. I was also really excited about 60 lbs or so ago when I could wear my wedding ring again - and now it's too big and hanging out in my jewelry box.

I can't sit at the computer very long. My skinnier butt is the problem.
I am constantly shifting my weight around, trying to get comfortable.
It's the 25+ pounds I lost last year.
It's driving me batty.

:crazy:

I am freezing all the stinking time. I recently started going to the tanning bed to get warm.

And too many choices in clothes. I can buy clothes in every store after having only the places with plus size department to choose from since I was a teen it's alittle overwhelming.

My butt is gone. From the back the effect is "keyhole" - you can see between my thighs. I don't mind and neither does my boyfriend, but it looks pretty weird. Sitting can be painful now too.

The most annoying thing of course is how desperately my mind and body wants to sabotage itself. Who knew the last 10-15 pounds would be SO hard?!

Another cold vote here. Are skinny people always this cold?! I have to wear long johns to work on the coldest days because I just can't stand the drafts going up my pant legs! I really hope I won't have to wear sweatshirts all summer, lol.

Same thing with the rings. DH and I both just recently went in to get them re-sized.

And of course we can't forget to mention always having to buy a new wardrobe every few months!

Oh my hair went to crap. I recently just jumped in and had it cut in a short funky hair style. I have spent so much money on vitamins, conditioning treatments, shine treatments, high end shampoos/conditioners. I swear my hair thrived on french fries and potato chips.

This could be a combo of hormones and drastic diet change. Because I started my journey right after having my 6th child. But this short funky hair fits my active busy lifestyle. Sexiness and femininity is NOT measured by hair length. I can go from my sweaty workout clothes and tennis shoes to a sexy dress and heels in a matter of an hour I love that!

Not having enough clothes. I wore size 3x for almost twenty years. Now, I'm rebuilding a wardrobe from scratch. And DITTO about not knowing where to shop. I'm used to the plus size department where the choices are few. Now I feel totally overwhelmed. And also my butt bones grind in the bathtub. I'm not as cold as I was before though. My body seems to have readjusted.

Just the being cold bit but that is so much better than being hot all the time. :)

Oh, that's the look I want! LOL! I think. :dizzy: If I'm picturing it right. But my thighs will never be narrow enough for that, I'm pretty sure. They never were.

Yeah, me too on the whole post.

As for cold, I was freezing all Summer and couldn't go into a grocery store without a sweater. Now that Winter's here, it's hard to tell, but I think I'm just cold like a normal person. I think my body temperature has regulated itself. We keep the house at 67 degrees, though, so I may have forced myself into dealing with it. I don't know. But I'm pretty happy with my thermostat. :D I'm just thankful not to be over heated all the time now.

Losing weight in some places and not others.

I lost almost 4 inches off my waist, and nothing off my hips. Those were fun pants to wear. Still somewhat tight at the hips but loos enough at the waist that you could see a visible gap between my body and my pants.

Or, I lost weight from the top portion of my stomach... but then my lower "gut" got bigger. It was like my fat was literally melting...

Yes!! Right now I have no hips, which makes my stomach look big and makes pants harder to fit. I'm a temporary apple, sort of...not really. But that will change.
