They don't like then they shouldn't look. Lose weight because it is what you want to do for your health, not because others have an issue.
    IMO...
    While some folks suffer from over abundant shame (they worry TOO MUCH) about what others will think...
    There is also a line where a person is behaving like an @$$ because they do not care at all.
    IMO there is a healthy balance in the middle.

    Note I am not taking a shot at anyone... only suggesting that either extreme is not a good thing...
    Your post was nothing more than an entry point to suggest balance...

    That's the problem, my proportions are not proportioned in the right places.

    I really can't complain. I weighed 195 as a high school senior. 44 years later and 20 lb I don't think is doing too bad. and the pants size hasn't changed that much.

    You must be thinking of when I was young...
    Got out of high school at about 135#... 6 ft, heavy boned...

    Around 40 was when I has to start paying attention to what and how much I ate...

    Now it is a constant battle...

    It is HOT and STICKY... however not as humid nor hot as where I grew up: Houston...
    GA is easy compared to that place...

    The larger problem with GA heat... is getting de-hydrated.
    One needs to drink lots of water, and keep drinking it all day!

    I always relied on this gauge: If you p** is not clear, you are not drinking enough water (note: water... not coke, iced tea, coffee, etc... water)

    I have a cooler case I got at Costco, holds 8 bottles of water... in the summer, my helper and I finish it off every day.

    This really is simple sh!t.

    Problem is, few understand the risk reward equation.
    I think it has more to do with total calories when it come to weight loss for a overweight person.

    Now what you eat probably has a big affect on if you are successful at reaching your goal and maintaining a healthy weight.

    You'll be miserable and hungry all the time eating just carbs and diet soda but if you only eat less than you need you are gonna loose weight.

    That's why buiding muscle is so important. We all know muscles burn a lot more calories than fat does. Burning calories while you are resting, that's where it's at!!!
