"you don't want to lose any MORE weight do you?"

why do people say this????? OK I'vs lost a lot but I am still a size 12 and would like to be an 8 or even a 10 - its not that extreme and people act like I'm becoming anorexic.... !!!

has anyone ever experienced this? is it supposed to be a compliment? doesn't feel like one!

i'm 5'8 and currently a size 10 (loose) down from a size 12. I lost 15 lbs and have been starting at the gym for toning to get down to a 6-8.

My parents are all hyped up! Grr!

Yup! I've gone from about 170 to 135. Just the past couple months I started really working out again and eating healthy and I just got down to 131. I am so excited and my Dad is thinking something is wrong with me! I'm 5'8" and wear about a size 8. I am eating so healthy and feel great! People just don't get it!

I get this all the time and I am a size 12/14. It is so annoying.

I went from about 180 or so to 120, and the venom that came from people about it! Particularly, my mother and female friends. It's mere envy, try to just let it roll off your back.

Yes, I went from a size 16 to a10 but I'm 5'3 so I am aiming for a 6 or maybe an 8, and a lot of people keep saying that same thing. I think people are used to seeing me a certain way so watching me drop 55 pounds they already think its enough but I know for me I should lose another 12-15 pounds. I am sure it is startling for some, especially if they haven't seen you in a while.

I'm the one who lost 55 pounds. How did I do it? The same way any of us who are serious about getting rid of the fat. Portion control, healthier foods, better choices and exercise. I do at least 60 min 5x a week and some strength training to tone up. Anyone can do it, you just need to stick to it and want it bad enough. It took me about a year and I did have some ups but always went down again. I just started taking responsibility for myself and stopped thinking it would magically come off.
