(Weight Gain and Compliments First post below)
I have gained 40 pounds over the past 3 years due to a thyroid disease. I get so frustrated and sometimes angry inside because people tell me I look good, I don’t need to lose weight, you look good with this weight on you, or some other kind of compliment. I really don’t know how to react anymore and I really want to just yell or have a sarcastic response. I don’t know what to do! Sometimes I get tired of being nice about it. Help!
I tried to do a model and this is what I came up with.
Circumstance-people compliment on weight gain, or say I don’t need to lose weight, etc.
Thoughts- I am fat. I have rolls. My boobs are too big. I am angry at myself for getting to this point.
Feelings- I feel frustrated, sad, embarrassed , angry or disappointed when people say these things to me
Action-? I sometimes say the thoughts that are in my head.
Results-? Subject gets changed or people chuckle
I don’t think my action or results are what the intention of the model is supposed to be. I’d love help on this. Thank you!
