A few things came to mind over the week end that I hadn't ever thought about.
No one ever told me that I'd want to 'photoshop' or throw away all the old pictures of myself.
No one ever told me that I'd be permanently referred to as " the girl who lost a $hit load of weight".
No one ever told me that I'd resent the person I was and be so angry with myself for staying that way for so long.
No one ever told me that I'd almost wish no one ever knew me before so I wouldn't be "formerly known as fat".
No one ever told me that I'd now have people be comfortable with telling me how they felt about my looks before, forgetting that it's still who I am now.
No one ever told me that I'd turn into a Susan Powter wannabe and preach weight loss to those around me.
No one ever told me that I'd have such a hard time wrapping my head around this whole transformation.
No one ever told me that I'd want to show before pictures of myself to the guys that have suddenly shown interest and ask if they would have liked me then.
Now don't get me wrong, there are so many wonderful things coming out of this "transformation". I am a very happy girl and I'm delighted with my results. Sounds like a major rant I know, but these are a few little things that have me frustrated. I'm only half way there and I still have a ways to go with plenty more things to experience and discover. I love and welcome change and I'm excited just thinking about all of the new things that are going to take place in my life aside from weight loss.
Has anyone else come across something that shocked you during or after your weight loss?
