Weight loss: things you didn't expect Anonymous 4878
Share some experiences you've had after weight loss that you didn't expect. How did you feel afterwards? Did people treat you differently? Were there changes to your body that you didn't anticipate?
I lost around 15kg / 33lbs recently and I just notice how strangers happen to be a little nicer to me than before. Females as well as males. Unfortunately i've been catcalled on the street more often. I also noticed a lot more changes in my face than anywhere else and sex has become a LOT better.
5’7” here, about 5 years ago I went from 150 lbs down to 118. Tons of guys (even some super hot ones) were hitting on me, buying me drinks in bars, flirting with me online. I could actually go shopping and have everything look good on me. But for some reason I was still unhappy and thought I should be smaller.
I’m a fat piece of shit again after developinf a serious drinking problem so all of that went away.
Sorry to hear that anon, everyone should try to love/accept themselves before starting to lose weight or trying to change their body
I lost about 30 lbs and still losing. I lost it all during the summer so when I went back to school no one questioned nor said anything about it. I did not say anything about it unless someone asks. The only person who said something was my best girl friend. I'll probably show off my weight loss on fb once the new year hits just to show off for once and then delete it.
Nothing really changed all that much in my life except that now I feel justified to say that I won't date fat guys, my options for finding cute clothes has expanded, and the confidence to take more tease pics and buy sexy things for myself.
Honestly, nothing changed socially. No one got nicer and I haven't got more attention. I sometimes get comments about my body (wether it's nice or not, I hate it tbh, why do you need to comment on my body ?) but that's it.
I just have an even harder time to find clothes that fit me correctly, and I lost a lot of my cleavage. Oh, and my knees hurt when I sleep on my side and they're on top of each other.
i lost a lot of weight last year, and i feel like it was such a waste because of the fact that i still hate my body. im built like a man, and getting fit only made that seem exaggerated. im working on building a bigger ass right now to balance out my broad shoulders. its a bad feel.
Lost 30 lbs in 2018.
I thought because I had big hips when I was fatter I had pear fat distribution but when losing weight I lost on both my waist and hips. Which is fine, it's just not a dramatic difference between the two which is disappointing (only 10 inches). My legs are still comparatively wide though and I have broad shoulders, so idk. I guess I just have no idea what my body type is now.
And same as OP happy with face changes, glad to have a nice jawline.
People I knew while losing weight commented, but strangers haven't treated me differently.
