well, I should be jealous of YOU! I’ve lost 10lbs since the beginning of the year. Go at your pace and focus on KEEPING it off vs. losing fast. You’re doing a fantastic job!

Trust me, you’re not the only one. I’ve always been very competitive about this, and I am not a competitive person at all. I try not to be, but that doesn’t change how I feel. I feel bad if I don’t live up to my own personal standards (like when I gain weight), and I’m so jealous of those who don’t have to work to stay thin/lose weight. I think almost all girls feel this way (at least the ones I know do).

I’ve been trying to lose weight like a mo-fo. I have a hormone disorder that makes it a big harder. I have lost 5 pounds since January. My cousin has lost 70. I really got down on myself, until I found out that she had a lap-band surgery. Then I realized why she had lost all of the weight so fast.

I also realized that everyone’s body reacts differently, so I just need to keep plugging away and being pleased with my progress!

I am not a fitness bee, I eat junk and I am 105 lbs….with that being said I am jealous of women that have curves and fill out their wedding dresses better! I guess we can never be satisfied?

Nothing to be jealous of because you’re living the healthier life!

I hear you. It took me an entire year to lose about 15 lbs, losing the last 5 is brutal. The only way I get over feeling ‘meh’ about certain parts of my body are finding things I love every time I get down on myself…. ‘damn, my butt looks good today’ .. or ‘my thighs don’t rub nearly as much as they used to!’…. 😛 it’s hard to see the positives but I’m sure you look great. Congrats with losing the pounds! That’s something to be proud of.

If someone else lost more than 24 lbs in 2 months, they should be jealous of you because they likely did not do that in a healthy way and you probably did.
