Eventually I'm going to have to get over it. I do NOT like being the center of attention. Not at all. I don't like being stared at and everyone at work is starting to look me up and down. I think the nugget of "something's different-what is it" has set in, though no one's said anything yet. I don't like that.
I have used my 60, 75, 100+ lbs of fat as a shield to make myself invisible. It has worked. NO one looks at the fat girl except to snicker or smirk. I know it is hard to be the center of attention but health wise, being thinner is so much better for you. Hang in there. You will get used to the new normal.
