(I was bored and reading the message board today and ran into this message from 2010 and I thought it deserved to be revisited)

I know this sounds strange but there is a thread about what you hate about being fat. Well Don't get me wrong 99% of the changes thats happening I LOVE!!!! but there are a few I hate! Do you have any you hate? Never even thought I would say that...lol

Ditto! I hate losing patience and fearing that I will give up before I get to goal. I hate that the fat hasn't quickly melted away.

I miss being able to eat chocolate whenever I wanted and not worrying about it.

I don't hate my boobs or clothes getting smaller, per we, but I DO hate the remeasuring and resizing to find out where I'm at NOW. I don't shrink in the proportions of a clothing label, so figuring out where the ten or twenty pounds came off when I'm trying to buy new, flattering clothes can be a big challenge.

I also hate the awareness that comes with being healthy. Even when I want to, I can't indulge like I did when I wasn't watching my weight or caring about my health - I know too much now and can't help but keep mental tabs on the calories, nutrients, preparation, etc. I can't turn the educated part of my brain off and it informs and dictates how far I'll let myself go. Most of the time this is an excellent victory and a great change, but sometimes I secretly think it would be nice to be ignorant and not care what I'm eating for a day. But I can't - now that I know and am used to using thought and moderation regarding my food choices, I can't go back to the way I was.

... Which sucks when I really want to eat my feelings and my brain won't let me :lol:

I miss having big boobs. My pear shape is really taking hold of my body now and my chest and arms have shrunk but my hips, butt, and thighs are still large.

My legs have become increasingly more difficult to shave ;) They used to be smooth and round, now there are muscles and bones.

I also could do without being cold ALL. THE. TIME. My poor heating bill.

I agree with two above:
My boobs shrinking
How slow it happens

Also having to buy new clothes, just because it's expensive. Especially my outdoors gear, snowpants and things like that.

Anxiety about how different I look (for pure vanity!). I still fit into my clothes just fine, seriously WHERE did my weight go, it couldn't be all from my head! Wondering what I'll look like at goal weight.

And my family's comments. I am an adult now and I am a much stronger person than before but I am very triggered by my family's nitpicking. Now, I get really defensive and riled up, I think to sort of...protect myself from them. But anyways, at least I recognize that its THEM and not ME.

Watching Food INC did that to me. Now I wake up super early to go to the Farmer's Market for eggs and meat every Saturday LOL. I am sooooo sleepy but I can't turn back.

I hate how long it takes me to make my meals now, and how bad I feel when I eat something I know I shouldn't or when I don't exercise.

I just watched Food Inc this past weekend. I was literally in tears hearing the animals squeel and seeing them at the slaughter houses.

I hate when I lose from areas that I deem less important. For example, I woud love my arm fat to shrink, but instead my body decides to lose at my back/underbust first which I didnt really mind before.

Well said. I sometimes catch myself going from the cookie aisle to the ice cream aisle to the cake rack & back and forth looking for 'something' and realizing - after I review the nutritional listings - that I'm not having any of it...

I hate trying to figure out what to wear. My old clothes are too big my REALLY old clothes are still a bit too small. So I'm wearing clothes that are too big and then get a little sad that you can't really notice the weight loss since the clothes are too baggy. (If that makes any sense).

But I hate to go out and buy a bunch of clothes for what should *hopefully* only be a short period of time.

Ditto on the boob thing. That was the one thing I didn't mind about being heavy - I finally had boobs.

I hate almost never having clothes that fit right because I limit my selection by price because my shape is changing. I bought 2 pairs of jeans at Old Navy during their $19 jeans sale a few weeks ago. The combination of them only being "good enough" then, and now losing another 5 lbs, makes them look "just okay". Hopefully in another 15 lbs I can wear the next size down and be done with these.

I hate that the people who meet me for the first time, can only see a fat woman, rather than an incredible shrinking woman.

-I have NO CLOTHES. NOTHING. This morning I tried a shirt on that I haven't worn in a long time and it's too big, and it use to be one of my favorite shirts too! (AND IT COST $50). I honestly have no idea what I'm going to do with the warm weather rolling in because I don't fit into anything from last year. I have only a few key pieces that I have repurchased - jeans and camisoles. There aren't a whole lot of outfits you can make.

-I'm cold ALL the time.

DISCLAIMER: I know I'll keep on doing it as long as it takes to really MASTER maintaining...

But DUUUUUUDE! :eek:

I SO don't like RE-losing after regaining. What stinks is that I keep getting older and the rules change, man!

I mastered “Loser as a Single Gal.” But not maintaining bit.

I NEVER did master “Loser as a Pregnant/New Mom with Baby/Small Child.”

Elementary school is my nirvana. :encore:

I want to learn new maintain things. Not so keen on learning new losing things THEN maintaing.

So now I can go back to “Single Loser Gal” skills again. (But during school hours only when child and DH disappear. Yaaaay! :D )

My boobs shrinking - they now look like tennis balls in a tube sock.

And not that I'm an advocate for "blowing it" - but when I have intentions of a planned cheat day, my thought processes will not allow me to "blow it" as bad as I used to.

I hate worrying that I won't ever get to goal, or that if I do that I won't have the strength to keep it off. I hate not being able to believe I can really get and stay slim! I hate the temptation to throw in the towel all of the time.

I hate that I have to make up excuses, why I won't eat something that is offered. Obviously I don't want to explain my diet to everybody. Struggling with celebrations is really hard for me. Half of the times I break, eat too much and feel bad afterwards.

Being cold ALL the time, when I was never cold before.

Not being able to just buy clothes and be done buying clothes - chances are, if they're pants, they're not going to fit for very long - and I'm finding that I'm losing pant sizes vastly quicker than shirt-sizes (tummy shrinking the slowest).

I hate that it takes so long, and that going out with friends is like a hurdle race ("how about we go here?" "sorry, no can do, they don't have salads!" "how about there?" "I can't eat that." And so on...)

More laundry from going to the gym. Feeling like I am being selfish carving out the time for the shopping, cooking, and exercising. Battling the negative thoughts that creep in telling me I should never have even gotten to this weight...

When out to dinner with friends, I hate when the beautiful, yummy desserts are delivered and I just sit there and watch everyone else eat them with pleasure. Yes, I said I didn't want any, but it still makes me sad that I can't have what you're having. :(

I, too, hate being in between sizes in clothes. I have GOT to get about 10 lbs off so I have something to wear when the weather warms up. Everything in my closet is either too big or too small right now.

I live in tropical climate and it's sunny all year round.:sunny::sunny::sunny:
I've decided to walk everywhere I go, so I'm sweaty the whole time. I don't mind being sweaty in my workout outfits, but in office clothes it is quite embarrassing. I also have to wash my clothes much more often. They're dirtier and therefore harder to clean. And the repeated washing wears them off more quickly.
BUT WHO CARES? I WILL NOT NEED TO WEAR THEM AFTER MY WEIGHT LOSS!

I think i hate it how there's such a fine line between eating enough to lose weight and eating enough to avoid hunger and

b. the thought that my body will reject the new me and force me to get fat again if i mess up. i.e. if i lose weight too fast and trigger a ravenous appetite that makes me fat again.

c. how easy it is to fall off the wagon.

Pattience

awshucks, i don't want to ruin your plan but i wonder do you think you'd be risking anything by having dessert in a situation like that.

On my diet, this is one of the two occasions when i am allowed to eat sweets. I haven't put the situation to the test yet but i don't want to have that deprived movement that you've just described. Beyond that, i' am convinced this is the only way i can give them up forever. I have to have the odd safe out clause. Of course i have to make sure that the sweets don't trigger seomthing afterwards so i would prepare before heading out that evening for what's to come.

And if the dessert menu looked pretty ordinary, i would say no. I only want to eat them when they are going to be amazing.

I don't hate recording my lower weight in MyFitnessPal, but then it recalculates how many calories I can have... and it is lower. AND, it recalculates how many calories I burn with each exercise, and... it is lower. I want to say "Wait! It still feels difficult to me to do those exercises but you're penalizing me!!!" I understand why it does it, but I don't like it.

I hate questions/comments from people. "How much have you lost?" "What plan are you following?" "Here is what I think you should do." Sorry, don't want to talk about it.

Absolutely! As someone who has been a conscious eater since 7 years of age, I have spent all of my life going for the healthiest option at any time. I don't know what it's like to just eat food because I want to and not tally it in some way.

When I was in college, I made a bucket list. One of the items on it was to order whatever I felt like eating at a restaurant without worrying about the nutrition. That's so sad...

Timely... I just cleaned out my closet of all the things that were too big to wear anymore and I am left with a very very bare closet. I have a handful of things that fit pretty well on rotation but I need a bit more!

Also. I'm pretty obsessed with this whole thing right now. It's pretty much the only thing on my mind. Thinking about what I'm going to make for supper, how many calories I have left. If I should have a snack now or later. What I am going to do at the gym today. What I am going to do at the gym tomorrow. Obsessed! (I don't think it's really a bad thing, I'm just happy I'm focused!) I have to make an effort to not JUST talk about that stuff! Try hard to just listen!
