I lost 48 lbs last year on Medifast. Well low and behold I gained them all back this year..

That's a whole other post in itself! My thoughts are consumed with this issue and starting this journey AGAIN....I feel as though everyone I see at work,friends and family are thinking in their head what a loser (no pun intended) I am. So my question is....are other people really that worried or think about our weight issues as much as we do? Or is it just a passing thought in their day if at all? Sorry if the post is confusing, hard to express my thoughts.....

Personally, I think you can get away with one major loss/re-gain before people start thinking about how you can't get the weight thing figured out. I'm actually dreading the holidays, not because of the food, but because I know everybody will be thinking "Here she goes again".

I can't really blame them, but then again all I can do is keep trying until I get it right, so it just is what it is..

Edited to say that I didn't mean that to sound down or discouraging. It's more a matter of just having accepted it. My family is pretty judgey..

I think some people notice every little change and for others you could lose 100 lbs and they would ask if you've done something different with your hair..

You can't control what other people do or say, but you can control your own thoughts and actionsyou did it once and you can do it again.

(btw, I think I have lost over 100 lbs in my lifetime, only to yo-yo; i'm dead set on getting it right this time!).

I say to hell with what other people think! But that's just me.

My weight has yoyoed so much that I have no doubt people are thinking, "Here she goes again." I've had to learn it doesn't matter, and really, I'm still learning that. I'm losing the weight for me, after all. Not them..

I Just agree with Tracy just let people say but who cares.....

I feel this way. I am on this journey again. I lost 72 lbs and gained 60 back.

I have come to the conclusion that I need more than just weight loss. I need to relearn about the why do I eat and why do I crave and the binge effects and portion control and a lifetime of addiction to certain foods. All of that and then how to live a lean life forever!.

I am doing it all differently this time. I have too. My life depends on it.

MF right now is all consuming to me until I get all the WHYS figured out..

Good Luck with your journey..

I second this too!.

Don't spend all this time and negative energy on other people. If they don't or won't support you and your efforts they are not worth you spending time on them. These negative thoughts will hurt you more than anything. Work at becoming positive, it does take practice for some of us. Stress hurts your attitude and weight loss so calm down, don't worry especially about other people and concentrate on what is best for you. Look into getting the book the Beck Diet Solution, it will help you heal your thinking..

Even tho not caring what other people think is great. I used to work with a girl that gained and lost weight so often she was the office running joke. Of course I was super jealous when she lost and I suppose sort of "pleased" when she gained. Sick but that is human nature for most of us if we are really honest about it. I am sure people are just waiting for me to gain my weight back like I have after any other loss.

So to answer your question yes I do think people think about it, maybe not dwell on it or obsess over it but deff give it a thought when they see you..
