How do I cope with people commenting on my weight loss?
When I started losing weight, I was really excited and happy with myself. I was proud of my progress and loved seeing the weight fall off. However, as my weight loss continued, I started to get comments from people about how great I was doing and how happy they were for me. At first, I was really happy with the compliments and felt like I was really accomplishing something. However, as the compliments continued, I started to feel really self-conscious and uncomfortable. I didn’t like the attention I was getting and I didn’t feel like I was doing anything special. I started to feel like I was being judged and I didn’t like that. I started to worry about what people were saying about me and I didn’t like that either. It was really hard for me to cope with the comments and I didn’t feel happy or proud of myself anymore.
Ideally I don’t believe that anyone should be making comments about your body. Your body is your business and no-one else’s.
However I’m assuming that most people are essentially well meaning and want to be seen to be encouraging.
It sounds as though you are preparing yourself for the possibility of intimacy with another person so perhaps you are undergoing a transition internally as well as and externally!
It’s good to have a healthy body for its own sake. A healthy body isn’t necessarily a thin body but there is a point where having excess weight is a health risk.
Ultimately a person who loves you will not care so much about your weight as they will love you for who you are. Losing weight is a sign that you are caring for yourself which is self love. Corny as it sounds, self love is a precursor to being loved by another, in my humble opinion.
When people make comments it’s up to you to decide how you will handle this. Perhaps you could have a pre decided response based upon your own inner response at the time. For example if someone you feel closer to comments and you feel that they really care, you could thank them and say that you can’t wait until its a non issue. With others who you feel are taking liberties with you, it would be more appropriate to set a boundary with them by clearly stating that such comments make you feel uncomfortable and the outright, ask them to stop.
All the best on your journey, I’m sure you will be successful.

It can be really frustrating when someone makes a rude weight comment. It can really put a damper on your day, and you might not know how to handle it. Here are some tips to help you deal with a weight comment that’s rude:
1. Don’t take it personally. If someone makes a rude weight comment, it doesn’t mean that they don’t like you. They might just be speaking from their own perspective, and they might not know any better.
2. Try to ignore the comment. If you can’t think of anything to say in response, that’s OK. Just try to focus on your own happiness and well-being, and don’t let the comment affect you.
3. Talk to a trusted friend or family member. If you can’t handle the weight comment on your own, talking to someone else can help you feel better. They can provide support and help you deal with the comment in a healthy way.
4. Get in touch with resources. If the weight comment is making you feel really upset, you might want to consider talking to a therapist or counselor. There are resources available to help you deal with weight comments in a healthy way.
Is it rude to comment on weight loss?
Especially if someone has lost weight in a way that is noticeable, it might feel like something to congratulate them on. However, even if you are intending it as a compliment, making a comment on someone’s weight loss is actually rude.
Weight loss can be a challenging journey, but it’s also one that can be filled with lots of encouragement and support from others. While it’s natural to want to share your own successes and challenges with others, it’s always important to be considerate of others’ privacy and feelings. It can be really rude to comment on someone’s weight loss without first asking if it’s okay. If you want to offer support, try commenting on their progress rather than their weight. And if you do have something constructive to say, make sure you’re respectful of the person’s privacy and feelings.
Why do people feel the need to comment on weight?
‘People feel entitled to their opinion about others’ weight due to the societal overload of weight expectations and the associated moral value of being thin. This means people feel like they can say something when it’s outside the ‘norm’ because they feel safe in the knowledge that society will agree with them.
People feel the need to comment on weight for a variety of reasons. Some may feel that they have the knowledge to have an opinion on someone’s weight and feel the need to share that opinion with others. Others may feel that they are entitled to an opinion on someone’s weight and feel the need to share that opinion with others. Others may feel that they are helping to provide support to someone who is struggling with their weight and feel the need to share that support with others. The underlying reason for why people feel the need to comment on someone’s weight is often related to their own feelings of insecurity or self-consciousness.
How do you deal with people commenting on your body?
Rather than feeling devastated or diminished, try to see the comment as a challenge: it’s a test of your relationship with your own body. Don’t give into the impulse to be easily influenced and irrational; instead, prove to yourself that you’re capable of an objective understanding of the way you look.
I’ve always been self-conscious about my body. I’m not particularly thin, but I’ve always been insecure about my weight and what people think of me. I try not to pay attention to the comments people make about my body, but it’s hard not to when they’re constant. Some people are constructive, others are mean. I’ve learned to just ignore them, but it’s tough. Sometimes I’ll get really upset and I’ll want to hide away. But then I remember why I’m doing this and I push through. I’ve learned to be proud of my body and not to let people’s comments affect me.
How do you deal with negative body comments?
Dealing with negative comments You can’t control how someone else thinks or behaves, but you can control the way you think and behave. View negative comments about your body as being about the other person NOT you. Challenge the person making the comments and ask them to stop – the rest is up to them.
There is no one answer to this question since everyone experiences negative body comments in different ways. However, some tips on how to deal with negative comments about your body might include:
1. Remember that not everyone is going to be happy with the way you look, and that is okay.
2. Don’t take the comments to heart. If you start to feel upset by them, take a step back and try to perspective them. Remember that everyone has their own opinion, and even if the comments are mean, they don’t reflect the whole of who you are.
3. Talk to someone about the comments. Whether it’s a friend, family member, therapist, or other support system, talking about the negative comments can help you to process them and feel better.
4. Exercise regularly. Being physically active can help to boost your mood and help to counteract the negative effects of negative body comments.
5. Practice self-compassion. When you feel down about your body, try to remember that not everyone is happy with the way they look too. Practice self-compassion and remember that everyone is different.
6. Challenge the comments. If you think the comments are unfair or untrue, try to challenge them in a constructive way. This can help to open up a dialogue about body image and healthy body image, and can help to change the way that people think about and treat bodies.
