24 Unexpected Things That Happened to People After They Lost Weight Fast

Posted on

In June 2018 at the doctor’s office, I weighed 263 lbs without clothes. This past Thursday, at the doctor’s office, I weighed 211 lbs without clothes. I guess what surprised me the most is that I really can’t see where I lost all that weight. @JenkemJoe

Going from eating greasy fast food to mostly fruits and vegetables means that you don’t use half a roll of toilet paper when using a bathroom. Shopping for clothes is soooooo much easier now. @Somgr81

24 Unexpected Things That Happened to People After They Lost Weight Fast

How easy it was to lose weight once I accepted the fact that I’m a food addict/binge eater and therefore calorie counting just needs to always be part of my life. Although the biggest surprise was how sabotaging, mean, and in denial almost all people in my life are regarding food. I subscribe to the “your body, your business” school of thought and was shocked at the amount of times I was accused of having a restrictive eating disorder when I was still well over 200 lbs, eating 1800 calories a day, losing less than 30 lbs a year. Of course when I put on 110 lbs over the course of 2 years no one said a thing. @Isitoveryetsir

My best friend just lost a ton of weight after a year of hard work. There was a guy at our university who treated her so badly when she was overweight. He one time told her he didn’t talk to “fat chicks.” He wasn’t even that thin himself. She didn’t see him for a year and then we ran into him on campus a year later. She was 100 pounds thinner. He was all over her. He was telling her she was beautiful and he always liked her but was too afraid to tell her, and asked her on a date. I almost spit out my milk and when she responded with, “Sorry, I don’t talk to fat guys.” @Maizybear

How different people treat you when you are in shape vs fat. You get treated with a lot more respect from men and women. It was weird to get used to. @MordinSalarian

The before and after photos for the most part. You don’t realize how fat you actually are until you lose weight and look 10 x times better. @pzzyclone

I even noticed a difference in how many strangers in public made eye contact with me. When you’re overweight, there are people who won’t even look at you. After losing weight, it took me a while to stop being paranoid about whether I had something stuck to my face. @acute_winnipegosis

How easy it comes back. Went from 250 to less than 200, then back to 265-ish. I’ve lost about 15 since I hit that max, but it’s not as easy this time. @That_ol_boy

I found bones and muscles I didn’t know I had (didn’t realize my ankle was a tiny bone, instead of this huge fleshy thing). Friends used to tell me, “You’re not that fat! You look 140!” I was 260 lbs, but I had never been skinny so I had no reason to not believe them, just assuming normal women must have been 100-120 lbs maximum. I can’t even pick up how much weight I’ve lost and carry it around, I have no idea how I used to walk, and I noticed I no longer sweat like I used to. I’d have to get to class 5-15 minutes early so I could wipe myself down in the bathroom with wet towels and hope that the shoulder and back stains from my backpack would dry up before anyone noticed. I no longer worry about hugging people; still not a hugger per-se, but it doesn’t make me feel like Godzilla or some kind of sweaty pig. You asked for the one unexpected change, sorry I went off on a ramble. @Rondellmole429
