Talking

We had a staff lunch today of sushi and I’m not a big fan of it so I brought my own salad and a few baby potatoes and salsa. They had homemade cookies and I had a half and then they opened a big box of Purdy’s chocolates so I passed it around to everyone pointing out all the really good ones so by the time it was my turn there wasn’t any I liked! Problem solved LOL

I try to take it as a compliment, but it's the exact people who say it that make me wonder. Like, from my best friend I would want to take a serious look at myself because I would take her seriously and at face value. From a different friend I would wonder if there was some "why can't I do that?" feeling going on and she might hope I would stop before I really get there. (she got to an Ann Taylor size 4 while still counting an imperial pint of beer as the same points as a 12 oz beer...that was never going to be sustainable given the amount of beer she drank so it's no surprise she isn't a 4 anymore...and that's not even counting her wine intake, LOL).

And from my mother in law? Oh heck no I will not take it as a compliment. We're just about the same height, and my current goal is how much she weighs at doctor's appointments (wearing shoes and full outfits), and I know she doesn't want me to get to a point where she can't say "you're so fat I don't recognize you!" anymore. (an actual quote, said the first time on the second time she ever met me).

I was visiting my BIL and his fabulous partner, and his partner was telling me how great I looked (this was a few months ago and at least 10 lbs ago, and I'm STILL not even to the upper limit of WW weight, still higher than that) and how I shouldn't lose more weight. BIL disagreed with him, while looking me up and down really critically. I felt like I was on "what not to wear" (which I'm sure I should be in reality, LOL) or Project Runway or something. And he just about nailed exactly how much more I had to go until that upper WW weight, and said that then I should stop.

I far preferred that, even though he was saying "yep I can still see that you can lose more fat", to the more suspect people with their murky reasons for saying that I should stop. (and since I've been a suspect, jealous person with murky, jealous reasons, I feel like I know what I'm talking about)


****
I was lurking on the WW message boards and saw that others have noticed what I have. When you start getting close to goal, you can start looking a bit peaky. Pinched face, just a bit too bony in the shoulders, and that is what makes many people start saying that, even when you know you have more excess fat to lose elsewhere. For some people, it just hits the face hard, and makes you look a bit unhealthy and sometimes older than you care to look. But once those people stabilize and start maintaining, it's like the body shifts the fat cells around a bit, the face fills out a little more again over time, maybe the collarbones aren't AS prominent, and you sort of fit back into your face again. Same weight (or even less), but your body is used to it now, and you don't look as "pinched".

I'm watching the process in the person who most recently made goal in our meetings. She's my meeting-hero because her stats are just about the same as mine, though she's a touch older and has a HIGH stress job as a nurse, and I know nurses often have a really hard time keeping their weight down (darned hospital food and difficult hours).

Weirdly, she's been saying it to me, too, that I must be at goal. But I think her body image is still a bit warped, if she thinks that she is the same size as me, because she's a few sizes smaller, that's for sure!

**********

DH lost over a pound this week, so he's almost back to pre-vacation weight (he only gained 3 but had a 2 week long trip to Russia shortly afterwards and it's been hard for him). But he looks so different; the two-sizes-lower pants that we bought him before vacation are getting loose, his legs are changing shape, and his back is getting a little bit narrower. He's having obvious changes that others can see, even though the scale is going slow. Thank goodness it's not just me telling him about these changes.

Yay for your husband. We don't have to rely on the scale to know that we are getting healthier.

(Sitting in my SSR Studio waiting for my family to finish packing ...) I know what you mean about that "pinched" look. Google "Lisa Rambo" one of Biggest Loser. She lost 108 pounds and looked VERY pinched and well ... ill.

I think the pinched/ill look is part of it. I also think that for some people dieting is an obsession/addiction. The food addiction gets turned upside down and is refocused to weight loss, exercising and counting calories/points. The scale, the clothes and the comments are all positive reinforcement. I do think that some comments are based in jealousy but I think most of them are based on true concern about addition & eating disorders.
