Don't take anyone else's opinions about the matter except what the facts are. The FACTS are that your BMI has JUST gotten into the healthy range. The FACTS are that "Underweight" BMI does not start until you get to 18. If you want to lose some more, you keep on going, lady! =)..
I am 5 foot 6, have been fluctuating between 162-164 lbs and wear from a size 8 to a size 12 depending.
That being said, everyone says I look way too skinny, which is silly BUT they know the 329 lb me so if you take that as a comparison, I think that's what throws people off.
People will always have something to say...don't let it get to you..
I used to be a solid size 10, and I always thought I was huge. I stated this program as a solid 20. Wow, 10 is small to me now. I truly believe that he was trying to be complimentary. I hope someone says that to me some day. You have come a long way, and you deserve to be complimented...
I have heard the same thing...don't lose anymore, you look fine. Well, when I'm naked looking in the mirror, I still want to lose 10 so that's what I'm going to do. I know what I want to be and how I feel, so don't let anyone tell you what to lose but you...
I thought your post said CRAB-O-LICIOUS MUFFINS and I thought "OMG, someone is making muffins out of the Maryland Crab Soup!!!"..
I have a good friend who got gastric bypass surgery. He posts his progress on Facebook and was so excited to post that he was finally below 200 lbs. the other day. Big mistake - he got about 1/3 positive responses - way to go! And the other 2/3 were, "OMG quit losing - you're getting too skinny - please don't let yourself get too skinny - you're looking gaunt." I can only imagine how awful some of those comments made him feel. The truth is that he looks great but he really does need to lose some more fat - gain some more muscle. But people don't get it - especially those who haven't ever had a weight problem.
They'll get used to it and get over it. Keep up your HARD work and remember your personal goals!..
