Feeling the Pressure

So the other day I blogged about how great it was to get compliments. I think I take a bit of that back. Today I felt the overwhelming pressure that having everyone notice my weight loss brings. Scary feelings. Those feelings of "Why does everyone have to notice me!!". If I fail now then people will notice. (not that I intend to). But it is a scarier feeling then any I have had on this journey.

Of course this comes from another person commenting on my weight loss today. A mom from the ballet studio. I don't know what about it today had me in tears during my spinning class. With my pants being so loose and people telling me how great I look, I just got overwrought with emotion. This is the most successful I've ever been with weight loss in the last 10 years. It's exhilarating and frightening all in one.

I'm good though and plan on staying good. :)


  1. Yeah! You should post some progress pictures!

  2. I do understand. It is difficult to feel as if you are the center of attention when you have felt like a wallflower for years. Enjoy the attention. You deserve it.

  3. I agree with both comments. Putting up progress pics was hard for me, but I didn't want to not have them when I reached my goal. It also was a great motivator in making sure I could show that I was making progress, for me and the blog world.

    Getting fit is one of the hardest things to do, and you're doing it! You deserve all the attention given you and then some!
