Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

Being too sensitive or not?



Recommended Posts

My doctor said that often we'll look sunken immediately after weight loss -- it's part of the process -- and that it'll slowly fade just a bit to settle into something that looks healthier. For now, ignore the haters (and to me, you look more than fine!!)

I agree with deactivatedfatgal... you look great! Don't let others bring you down. Especially since some of it could be from there own insecurities an them being intimidated by your weight loss an beauty that leads them to try and pick at you to feel better.

honestly! you were pretty adorable in the first picture. The second is better because you look happier, like more engaged with the picture and whoever is taking it.

As for your family, sounds like mindless lashing out because you're succeeding where they failed. They don't mean to be discouraging -- at least not most of them consciously. Ignore it and breeze on.

I work for the DoD and we have small stores in our buildings that are run by the Council for the Blind. Now, only one of the stores is run by someone blind. All the others are run by individuals that are almost blind. Well, I was told by one of the guys that I look sickly, sunken face and that I need to gain weight. This was about a month after WLS. I was like WOW!

First thing first....you look GORGEOUS! As long as you're happy, that's the only thing that matters. We don't live our lives to make other people happy. Stay fab, dahling!

It's a mind game. This is normal for people who are used to seeing you at a larger size to think your face looks too thin. Someone who just met you will not see you that way.

This is true. I have a friend who had the bypass and i felt she looked ill compared to what i was used to seeing. But after awhile I adjusted to the new and so much more happier her. Like stated above... people who don't know you won't see it that way. You look fabulous.

Wow you are such a lovely lady. Your face looks perfectly in proportion to your body. Maybe a non confrontational way to address the rude comments is "I feel good about my choices & my journey, and I need positivity & support from those around me"

You look stunning! Sorry 'bout the naysayers (especially since they're close to you). You seriously look great though. Give them time and they'll come around.
