It does, i've just done a presentation on Anorexia for Psychology at college, and I did a bit on this, that people can still see themselves as fat (and it is very real to them, its not just like they've seen a bit of puppy fat its that they actually see themselves as huge) its down to bodily perception and I can totally understand why that does happen as even people who are not anorexic but have lost a huge amount of weight, it can take a while for their head to catch up with how much weight they have really lost, as if you still perceive yourself as overweight, that is how you will see yourself.

Interesting.

I used to think I had pretty large hands, but I've had a lot of people tell me how "cute and small" my hands are. Weird.
