Why do people treat you differently when you start losing weight?

I’ve not even been trying to lose weight. But my new job, I am constantly on the move. So in four weeks, I have lost about 10 pounds. I was not that big in the start. I was 151 pounds and 5’2. Now I’m just under 140 pounds. And I notice people treat you differently. Even when you’re in a bad mood “can I help you?” ” Are you okay?” and even more smiles on the tube. Or is it just me?

    you are probably at least a little bit pleased that you’ve lost some weight and so you are more than likely giving out more positive vibes than you were previously. in turn, people subconciously pick up on these and also being positive toward you

    I don’t know really. But it may be because people tend to respect those who are more fit, as wrong as that is.

    After I lost weight….I went from a 12/14 to a 4….I noticed people payed a lot more attention to me. Especially men. People really do judge on appearance.

    I think when you start losing weight, you become very conscious of yourself and what other people act like around you. It’s not surprising you’re noticing these things – you’re just more conscious of what people think.

    I have noticed this too. I’ve been up and down in weight since I was a kid, and even if I’m not actually happier (so I don’t think it’s anything to do with vibes sometimes), people are much nicer to you. I’m not 100% sure as to why, but I personally think that it is probably something to do with the fact that people, consciously OR subconsciously, prefer thinner people (in general). Being slimmer implies being healthy/taking care of yourself, etc. whether or not it is true in actuality.
