Does losing weight make you a less interesting person? Watch
Though saying that you probably aren't "less interesting" like you think you are!
When you start thinking of yourself as kind of a big deal then it reflects in how you talk to people.
Save time. See it my way.
My weight has fluctuated quite a lot over the past few years. I went from pretty much obese, to normal, now I've put weight on again but not to the point of obesity, I'm just overweight. Anyway, when I look back, I see a massive switch in my personality, mainly due to confidence. As soon as I lost weight and became considered to be more attractive, I admit I became arrogant. It is just a massive confidence boost when men start noticing you and you can start the dating game with confidence for a chance, and yeah it made me arrogant.
That is how I changed. I just got cocky; not necessarily less interesting though. I am probably a nicer person when I'm overweight though, weird to say. I like to think if I got back down to that weight again, now that I'm older I'd be mature enough to not let it go to my head or anything.
It wasn't a big deal to me before this because I hadn't notice it along the way but it struck me recently how I care so much about what other people look at me now compared to before. I was a lot more joyful and carefree when I was overweight because I felt like I didn't need to maintain some sort of 'image' to people but now, I just feel like I have to always look my best in front of people. I would hold back when I have something lame or funny to say in fear that people might judge me, I would not laugh as hard because it would make me look silly, I would not do things that would make myself look stupid etc.
I know exactly how you feel and although I am happy with how far I came in terms of losing all that weight, I definitely feel a lot more cheerful back then
I've lost about 5 stone and now I get called dull etc for having water instead of wine or ordering a salad. I am a lot more conscious of what I eat and when I eat it and as I'm trying to decrease fat atm, I'm paying a lot of attention to my macros so I guess I am 'less interesting'.
I'm still the same person, just more focused I suppose? I feel less able to go out for a pub dinner and a few pints and therefore to many I'm not the social butterfly that I was
I have a good friend who was, let's say, somewhat chubby in year 7. Lost the weight without blagging about it, and she is still the same fun loving person we all know and like. A few others I know somewhat annoyed me with their obsession with mentioning their weight loss.
Put simply, don't make it a public problem or things get a bit annoying an awkward, and then you feel less fun.
