Default What Is Your Biggest Weight Loss Fear

Mine is that I will forever have to shop at plus sized stores. I can't wait till I get smaller so I can shop anywhere

My biggest fear is getting to goal and gaining it back. I've done it several times in the past, and want to do everything possible to prevent that from happening when I reach goal this time. I'm tired of this yo-yo weight rollercoaster.

Yup, my fear is gaining it back, too. After getting pregnant, I gained back about 30 lbs. of my previous 70 lb. loss. The 30 lbs. is what I hung on to after the initial weight dropped off by itself. I gained WAY too much while pregnant. I'm happy that I kept off 30 lbs. or so, but my eating was out of control. I'm so afraid that will happen again, pregnancy or not. I think it's good to have a healthy fear of that, though-- maybe it will keep me on my toes more.

My fear is that it will be a struggle my entire life. I really want to lose the weight AND find an eating and exercise lifestyle that I not only can live with but enjoy. I really don't want to be 85 years old in a nursing home, and still worrying about what I eat!

My fear, like everyone else, is gaining it back. I know it can be done, and I know I do it well. I'm going to make one big change.... stop fearing the scale. Use it. That was mistake #1 last time around. I hope I can maintain diet and exercise and find the motivation to get back with the program if I do end up gaining, before it's 80 pounds again.

My biggest fear is this being a huge struggle for the rest of my life. And not winning. Never getting back to my previous weight. Always being fat

Every single day, I'm afraid to gain it back. Unfortunately, I think I need to be this afraid if I want to keep it off. I've lost and gained the same 70 lbs. way too many times and I'm not naive enough to thing that this will ever be a breeze.

I'm afraid that if I don't start dealing with my weight I am going to spend the rest of my life alone, and I'm sick of being lonley.

Without a doubt gaining it back. Or even worse, that I can't actually lose it.

Agree! gaining in back. But another fear is that I still won't be confident about my body when I lose weight.

I also agree with cherrypie and will say Saggy skin, I have serious bingo wings on my arms at the moment. My mum tried to convince me that, I still have loads of weight to lose, that I'm young and will snap back very easily and not to worry, that the saggy skin would go away, I found it very hard to believe.

I also fear gaining it back. But I'm having success with keeping my fluctuations within reason. I can live with that.
