SHardy's Journal, 22 May 2013

My total weight loss has been at least 30 pounds. I weigh-in again next week. I am trying to figure out how to respond when I hear comments about my new appearance. I really don't like when my husband calls me skinny, when I am far from skinny. He also says things like I'm all skin and bones, which I am not. These comments irritate me because I don't know what he is really trying to do. In the past, he has given me very little support in my weight loss. I am not the sort of person who needs a lot of comments or complements. I think I am just not used to getting them, so I have adjusted to not getting them. True complements I can take, but calling me skinny when I weigh 214, is not right to me.
214.5 lb Lost so far: 13.5 lb.    Still to go: 34.5 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

I don't think your experience is that unusual. I am about 25 pounds down from my highest weight 3 years ago and I STILL look at clothes in the store and think I will need a larger size than I do. My sister yelled at me a few months ago because I made a comment about me being the "fat" sister - she told me size 10 was not fat. Maybe it depends on how long we were overweight, or how we see ourselves in other ways. I am really trying hard not to judge myself by the scale, but I've done it so long I still do. But I don't even do it right. Instead of realizing I am still over all 20 pounds down, I notice when I am a pound up and that I still have so far to go, and I feel like a failure the whole day. Baby steps. I will learn to accept my body for what it really is.
