    I have lost 2 stone 4 and I have dropped from a 16-18 to a 12-14 but when I look at my fat photo and photos of now i still look the same to me. but people at sw (members) are saying I don't need to lose much more yet I think I do.
    anyone else have this problem?

    yes I have this problem I was a 18 and dropped down thing is when I was fat I never saw myself as fat I was still a skinny 18 year old now I'm slim I'm not happy as I'm not that skinny 18 year old, I'm planning on 7lb to bring me in line with where I was when I met dh I think disorted body image is a big problem

    I can relate to this as I bought my first size 14 jeans and was wearing them today. Had 2 neighbors saying that I am fine now and didn't need to lose more weight. When I look in the mirror I still see that I have a long way to go!

    Yes, I think it's normal.

    I'm now thinking that it won't be a REAL weight loss until I drop another stone barrier, or until I get my 4st award (it used to be 3st, but now I'm near that, it doesn't seem enough to warrant any celebrating).

    Please believe other people when they tell you the difference - it is the best indicator that there's a change, as we see the same face in the mirror each day, so won't really see huge differences.

    In saying that, some days will be better than others, and you'll look/feel slimmer than others.
    It's weird, but certainly happens to me.

    Yep, I totally know how you feel. I started at a size 24 and am now a 10, but I honestly can't see much difference in the mirror, but I can in photos. In the mirror, I still see a fat person, but in photos I have to look twice, I don't believe its me!! The first time I saw a photo of me this size, I literally didn't realise it was me at first. I advise you to take a full length photo, I bet you will see then the true you xx

    My problem is I don't really feel fat, although I know I still look hideously fat in photos! I think its because 2 years ago I was nearly 3 stone heavier, so compared to that I feel a lot slimmer and fitter. The only way I can tell I'm actually losing weight is when clothes get looser.
