It’s a common occurrence on a typical weight-loss journey to think that once you lose the weight, life will be easier, better, maybe even perfect. But all too often (and not just with weight loss), when one thing changes, it sets off a ricochet of other changes that you couldn’t even fathom at first.
Since losing weight often comes with more than just baggy clothes and a lower number on the scale, we asked MyFitnessPal users for unexpected revelations. Here’s what you shared:
There might be some jealousy
You continually order sizes way too large for your smaller shape
Less fat might mean more wrinkles, and that’s OK

Becoming a bit obsessed
Wearing dresses again
