Does your mind still tell you that you are huge ?
I really am battling with viewing myself thinner. When I see myself in my mind, I view myself as really overweight and just can't seem to replace that image with someone who has lost 3.5 stone. I was asking my hubby last night about who I now looked like weight wise amongst my friends and who he said really surprised me as I feel double the size of that person. Do any of you suffer from this ? Is it because we lose weight so quickly that we find it difficult for our minds to adjust ? My weight really effects my confidence and one of my wish lists was that if I lost weight I would be more confident, but as my image in my mind isn't changing this isn't happening. Sorry for my ramblings but would really appreciate other people's experiences. X
Did S&S at beg of yr and lost 3st but due to a bereavement came off plan and put on 1st7lb. Restarted my journey on 1 Oct and lost 34lbs after nearly 10 weeks.
Weighed 10.6 on 12 Dec 12, stopped for Xmas break and piled on 12 lbs. Restarting 10 Jan 13 at 11.4. Holiday planned for W/C 10 Feb, I have to be at least what I was, but my target is 10st, can I make it ?

Ditto... I've lost 6.5 stone and still see myself in my head as the same size as I was! Always get a shock when I see my reflection in a shop window etc! Hopefully it'll all click into place for all of us x
Restarting Slim and Save on 29.01.13 after 8lb Xmas gain
Overall weight loss (with SW and WW)
I started at 19 stone and a size 26. When I got to a size 14 I kept being shocked whenever I saw myself in the mirror. So I made myself go and try clothes on a lot and stand in front of the mirrors in well lit changing rooms. Even though I knew it would shock me it was still a shock! After a month or so of doing this a lot it was no longer a shock and now I have accepted my size. At goal I was a size 10 and currently a 12. I feel big and lumpy when I get to the edge of the size 12 and then I lose the weight again! I think I'll go between a 10/12 during maintenance - which is fine with me. I now think of myself as a thin person, which is strange because I never thought of myself as a 'big' person - my body size just wasn't important to me. Now it is and I'm hoping that'll help me to maintain.
Reached goal of 130 lbs to lose.
On maintenance I'm a little higher than I would like to be...
I am the same.since I lost the weight I am constantly surprising myself.I see myself in the mirror and have to stop and look closer...is it really me? But I am now so used to being a size 10 that putting on a few pounds can make me feel uncomfortable at a weight which would have been a dream just a year ago.it is a very strange way to feel.

I feel exactly the same,I lost 3 stone on slimmingworld/weightwatchers and so it wasn't even "fast weightloss" but I still felt huge,when clothes shopping id still pick up a 16! I put a stone back on after slimmingworld and felt even bigger than when I originally started,yet I was 12stone,not the 14stone id started at,and so I feel like even though im half way through getting to goal weight that im starting again,I can see the weightloss if I compare photos yet somehow it still doesn't register,I just think,ohh well it was a good camera angle! I hope when I do hit that target in my mind of 10st ill be happy! Fingers crossed,would be horrible not to enjoy and see the weightloss after all the hard work we all put in to get there! Xx
