Weight Loss & Five Common Things That Go With It

Common Things That Happen When
You Lose A Noticeable Amount Of Weight
Whenever someone chooses to commit to a weight loss journey, it’s not just a physical transformation that happens, but a mental transformation as well. Regardless of how long it takes for people to reach their goal weight, there are significant things that occur along the way that impact their body image and confidence. For all of the positive reinforcement once receives, they might also notice some negativity or odd reactions from those they are close to. Read on for tips and insights from leading experts that will offer clarity and solutions for anyone seeking to transform or who already has.

1. You shed friends along with pounds.
Dr. Sanam Hafeez PsyD a NYC based licensed neuropsychologist, a teaching faculty member at the prestigious Columbia University Teacher’s College, explains that, “It is normal to lose friends as you lose pounds. As you see the payoff from the lifestyle changes you’ve made you may feel disconnected with friends who may still eat and drink things you no longer do. You’re evolving,” offers Dr. Hafeez. She also adds that, “It’s common to notice jealousy, and digs. You may even experience exclusion from dinners out presuming you wouldn’t want to indulge.”

Have faith that your true friends will love you at any size. “It will actually be difficult to tolerate any gossip, negativity or activities that are counterproductive. The last thing you need are people who bring you down when you are doing something positive for your well being. Look out for yourself. At times that may mean distancing from certain people,” advises Dr. Hafeez.

2. Loose skin becomes the new thing you notice. Once you reach your goal weight, you may love how you look in clothes but naked in or a bathing suit is a whole other story. This is most common when weight loss is significant. Even when weight training is part of the regimen, loose skin does happen.

Dr. John Zannis a board certified plastic surgeon based in New Bern, North Carolina frequently sees and treats patients who went through a weight loss transformation. According to Dr. Zannis, “Loose skin can gather at the stomach, under arms, breasts, buttocks, inner thighs, face and neck. The more significant the weight-loss is, say 50 pounds and above, the more likely a plastic surgeon is sought out to explore body lifts that specifically address loose skin after weight-loss.”

3. You have more energy, are excited about life and can do more!
As you change your diet, add daily exercise to your new lifestyle and see the weight melt off, you gain energy! You don’t feel the need to hit the snooze button anymore. You may wake up energized for that 7am powerwalk or you may be inspired by that beautiful new dress you get to wear to work, another dress size dropped. Yay!

“Use newfound energy to your advantage, encourages Dr. Hafeez, your brain is forming new neuropathways as your perception about your body starts to change. That flight of stairs that was once an obstacle is much easier. Simple things like putting on shoes, picking up toys and pushing a vacuum are done with ease. As you take notice of what your body can do, you gain more confidence and want to do more. This energizes you both physically and mentally,” she adds.

4. Shopping gets interesting.
It is common to get overwhelmed with options now that you can shop the way you always dreamed of. Perhaps your new strong, shapely legs have inspired you to wear dresses again for the first time in years. Or after always covering your arms, you may opt for sleeveless tops. Either way, trying new looks outside of your comfort zone can be daunting. Dr. Hafeez advises to, shop on your own or with someone you really trust. “It is important that shopping is made to be fun by approaching it as a style experiment. Don’t expect everything to look perfect just because you are a much smaller size. Some things will work, others won’t. Look for clothes that feel good. When you smile in the mirror that’s a sign you’re on track.”

5. You make yourself, your health and well being top priority and start to inspire others.
When you lose a noticeable amount of weight other people want to know how you did it and how you are keeping the weight off. Your immediate family may also adapt to your dietary changes and experience weight loss by association. When your kids see you wake up every morning to exercise they see that anything worth having requires commitment. Your significant other may be inspired to also lose weight. “When you take care of yourself and are in a positive mindset, it has a positive impact on everyone you interact with. When the mind and body are aligned you love the way you look and feel, you’re happy and someone others can look up to.”

First Botany Scar Cream & Epidermal Repairing Cream

If you are on the hunt for something that will decrease scars and discoloring on your skin then First Botany Scar Cream & Epidermal Repairing Cream is just what you need.

This comes in a jar with a top that you have to press down to get it to dispense the cream and just one push is plenty. The scar cream isn’t greasy or sticky – it rubs in well and to me it doesn’t have much of a smell.



I have a condition called Polymorphic Light Eruption. It is an itchy rash caused by sun exposure in people who have developed a sensitivity to sunlight. It appears as red, tiny bumps or slightly raised patches of skin. Along with all of this comes little tiny scars all over my arms.


Since I have staring using this produce the spots aren’t near as noticable as they used to be so I would recommend this to anyone with scars wanting to get rid of them.

THE WRAP by Zen Jane

I have been wanting to try one of these types of wraps for a long time. I like this because this box comes with 4 wraps in it. Not only can these be used on your abdominal area but you can also use them on your arms, legs, waist, or hips…it just depends on where you need your body tightened and toned. I have always wanted to firm up my abdomen from my having my children so that’s where I am using my wraps. You put the wrap on, then wrap it in suran wrap, wear it for 45 minutes, then remove it and wash the area. I didn’t have any reaction to it. I didn’t experience weight loss yet but I have noticed some tightening and firming. You can do a wrap every 72 hours.

Strawberry Banana Shortcake Smoothie / Degree Motionsense Dryspray

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

I hope all of you were able to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the one that you love or at least with someone special.  I’ve spent it in bed sick with a bad case of bronchitis!

Today’s recipe is going to be a yummy smoothie that everyone should enjoy.

Strawberry Banana Shortcake Smoothie

1 banana

1 cup strawberries

1 cup pound-cake

1 1/2 cups milk

1 1/2 cups ice

2 tsp honey, if wanted

*Blend all in blender until desired consistency.  Top w/whipped cream.


Degree Motionsense Dryspray Anti-perspirant

This new anti-perspirant from Degree is wonderful!  Degree is a great, reliable anti-perspirant to begin with that works well under pressure.  This new Motionsense Dryspray is a 48 hour anti-perspirant!  Yes, I said that correctly…it works for 48 hours!!  This is great for women like me who have awful hot flashes and night sweats and need something that has great coverage.

Degree Dryspray

One can will last approximately up to 8 weeks.  The scent it comes in is Fresh Energy which is a nice, pleasant scent.  I would highly recommend this to anyone that perspires heavily.
