That's the thing though---even after you've lost the weight, you don't forget how people will treat you when they think you don't count or matter. I've never been happy with my weight-- I was born the heaviest out of my parents' four children(including my brother), and I have always been conscience of my image.
Okay, that's an exaggeration, but for *most* of my life, at least, I've seen the difference between regular people and me.
And (I know this from experience), overweight girls will look at me with jealousy, maybe hatred, and possibly not ever want to talk to me.

Regular people as in the 90% of the classroom that never had to watch what they ate and were able to be completely care-free when recess or gym came along, the people who anybody would be able to speak to without it being uncomfortable.(Gosh, the many times when pupils would say, "Wow, you're smart! Being forced by my mom to try some clothes on, and then trying to keep my composure so she won't ask if I'm okay when my eyes become red after seeing myself in the mirror." as if being fat came along with having a below-average IQ...? Despite reading that you regretted not losing weight before high school, and actually, despite over a dozen of years of desperately wanting a good figure, I'm considering keeping my weight on during high school.)I can relate to you, at least, when you hadn't lost all of the weight yet. Sometimes, I'll picture myself pretty when I'm forced to take a picture, and then seeing the photo is just... This is my major setback for losing weight(you've already mentioned it): everyone will treat me differently.
Instead of having crushes ignore me after telling them my feelings(it wasn't really his fault-- I did so via text message, and he might/might not have already been dating another girl), guys might actually try to get to know me.
Kind souls might not be the only people who go up to me to get to know me.
