Disappearing Support - and latest pics!

Saturday, October 01, 2011

Today was not the best day for me.

Today I was actively disuaded from my journey by the people closest to me - my mother and sister. They both went out of the way to tell me I looked bad today. And for the 1st time ever, they didn't tell me I was looking fat, no. Today they went the other way and told me I looked too thin!!!
Now I feel the need to upload a picture of me today:

And a little later on today lol

To be told, with a BMI of 23, that I'm too skinny, is really hurtful. I have spent my life with my fsmily telling me to lose weight aqnd now I have done they are complaining about it!! No fair!!

Anyway I apologise for the rant, but I am struggling to come to terms with this turn around from the people i expect to support me the most! AT least my h2b is still with me and wantrs to make sure I get healthy!!

Anyway I know I can rely on spark support and sorry I'm feeling so blue today!! xxx

    Darling you look Gorgeous!
    You've not lost your assets, only the extra flab! :) I agree that maybe your family is soo used to seeing you in a chubbier form that they cant help but think "too thin". Its just a huge change for them. Dont let it bother you too much deary! From the eyes of the SP world you are perfect and healthy and fit and inspiring! :)
    Heck! Your a role model! So enjoy the limelight! :)
    Big hug!

    First off, you don't look too thin, you look fit and fabulous. I'm sorry your family is saying such mean things. I think family and close friends have difficulty adjusting to seeing people in a new light, but that is far from an excuse to be unsupportive. I am fortunate in that my family is great, but other people made stupid comments when I lost weight before. When I weighed around 200 lbs, I was told by numerous people that I looked deathly thin and sick. Hopefully the dumb comments stop and your family can just start being proud of you (like your SparkFamily is!); until then, continue to applaud your new healthy life!

    I'm sorry your family has chosen to make you feel this way especially when their support is all you desire from them. You love the new you and that is all that matters. Well, I think you look fantastic and I'm so inspired by you for reaching you goal. Keep you head high and your chest lifted because you are fierce. emoticon

    Sorry your fam isn't being as supportive as you'd like. My guess is that the new you is just taking some getting used to for them, and they probably don't think that telling you they think you're too thin is insulting. Shake it off, and do whatever makes YOU happy in your own body.
