    I was lying in bed last night, Excitedly trying to think of when I (hopefully) lose weight, And what clothes I would buy etc but I just couldn`t visualise myself thin :confused:

    I had my children young and always had a weight problem due to Underactive Thyroid and PCOS since, So it has been a loooooong time since I wasn`t "big" and I just cannot remember what it is like to be thin?

    I have lots of big things coming up this year that I am determined to get slim for!!!!!! And can`t wait to be able to buy nice clothes for them - Most notable one is the Bizarre Ball in London, I want to be thin enough to wear something sexy ;) :D

    So, Am I the only one?

    I can picture myself thin, but I think what my brain really does a lot of the time is think of the celeb I look most like and picture them!

    I have never been thin so I have no reference and I can't imagine what I will look like. I am still amazed by my collar bone that seemed to have been installed about a year ago!

    Thanks for the replies all x

    Taz, I can`t wait til I have a collar bone again :rolleyes: lol

    I don`t want to be THIN thin, I just want to be healthy. What I mean by thin is not huge like I am now ;)

    Still can`t visualise it - Will take pics maybe so I can hopefully SEE it as I progress xX

    I can't visualise myself thin either, I've never been it so I'm certainly have no reference. I don't even know that someone of my height and target weight are supposed to look like so I have nothing to go by their either! Any 5'7" who weighs 180-150lbs?

    I'm 5'7 and more like 200 lbs - I dunno if it'll help at all or if you will be able to access my facebook, but here's a link in case you can - (far right)

    It's still quite new to me, I tap on it while I am sat at my computer! When I am laid down in bed I can also find those mythical creatures, the pelvic bones! All these new things are so amusing!

    Hi,

    I have no reference as to what i would look like thin either - although i have lost over 3 stone i look in the mirror and still see the same girl that i was before!! Its a head thing with me - i'm sure it will click in soon. I agree with Taz though its weird when lying down that i can now feel my pelvic bones - and things like my watch now being really big on my wrist..

    K xx

    Can you visualise yourself thin?

    Well, if I tell you I have spent most of yesterday afternoon trying to put my head on Claudia Winkleman's body using Photoshop, you will guess that my Answer was NO I can't. And the answer is also NO that I will not, be posting the result of Claudia Chips, on here any day soon :(

    **hugs** You will get there one day hun, Just like we all will. We just need our heads to be in the right place and then it will click x

    I have never thought of sticking my head on someone, Might try that ;)

    Well done on your weight loss so far :D I did the same as you, Loosely followed my own version of WW and managed to lose 21lbs til it all grinded to a halt :(

    Are you exercising too? I did 30 mins a day on the Wii Fit - It really does make a difference!!

    Have a lovely Easter

    Xxxxxxx

    Hi SacredSilence, I know I should exercise more, I do a bit on my exercise bike and walk Daisy the rescue dog a bit but I am struggling with painful hips and legs so its a chicken and egg situation that I need a bit more weight off before I can push myself on the exercise, at the moment I am just trying to keep mobile. I do a bit of gardening and have just hoovered right through with my new vacuum cleaner and hate it ! took weeks to decide which one as I needed lightweight and super filters because of my breathing, loads of research and swotting on Which, but I think I've made a mistake. I'll have to ring Bosch after the weekend. I am so fed up with spending out for rubbish then having to do battle !

    Yeah I think you're right! I tap on it when I'm sat at the computer, it's like a passtime now!
