Just read your story, and you are truly amazing! CONGRATULATIONS on that HUGE weightloss, that is quite incredible. You must be so proud of yourself. You must be seeing parts of your body you haven't seen in sometime! ( I am looking foreward to shaving my bikini line).
Everyone focuses on what everyone else thinks. We all do, and even those who say they don't care do too! We all want to be respected and approved of by others. However, all that truly matters is what YOU think of YOU.
Unfortunately people do try and discourage you for their own selfish reasons. For example many husbands worry their wives will be prettier and won't love, or want them anymore. Freinds worry that they won't be the 'best looking' anymore, if you lose weight and look fantastic. Lots of people have their own selfish reasons why they discourage you.
I know myself, my whole family is skinny except me. It has always been that way, and I think they like it that way, it makes them feel superior somehow.
What you have acheived so far is absolutely STAGGERING. Another 7kgs will be a walk in the park!!
How sexy do you feel now? Betcha they all check you out now, for all the RIGHT reasons!!!
