Don't you just love the people who decide to dictate how much weight you should lose? Some people are very supportive, complimentary.. some people ignore your accomplishments and changes altogether, and both are fine. But some people.. those that ask "Why do you want to lose anymore? You look fine!" or my favorite "Don't lose anymore or you're going to look sick!" even when I'm still 15 pounds above the "Normal BMI" as recommended by medical professionals. Why can't people just let me be? If I say I want to lose 15 - 20 more pounds, leave me alone! If I start to look sick and drawn, trust me, I'll stop! I am far from having an eating disorder... this is why it's taking me forever to get rid of .4, or .2 a week... I like food too much. Trust me, your "concern" is noted and appreciated, but please.. keep it to yourself!! (Personal note, I'm down 43.6 pounds since January, 16)
