Yeah I do sometimes, like today....even though I've lost over 2 stone and I know my body is smaller...my thighs just looked horrible, all bumpy and white, and the fat seemed to just blob everywhere on the chair :(

At least I'm not the only one. >__<
So do you guys think we're just crazy and other people don't see us the way we're seeing ourselves?

I'm in 2 minds about the way I see myself, if people say I look good etc I just assume they're being polite because they know I'm trying to lose weight. I want to lose another stone but last night I wore a new dress out and amy friends who I was out with said I didn't need to lose any more. Regardless of that I won't stop 'losing' until I'm happy!

I've lost alot of weight (more to go) and i have saggy bits that i'm trying hard to tone up (i know in back of mind that i'll have to have an op to remove, but fingers crossed i wont) and even tho i am now the thinnest i have ever been, skinnier then high school, i still feel like my old self.. i see myself in a mirror and i see a thinner me, but when i'm talking to people i still feel like i have my massive head, triple chin etc.

the only way i can describe it is 'phantom fat' .. you hear stories of people that have lost legs / arms, still feeling they are there (phantom limb syndrome) .. well i still 'feel' the lost fat.

no idea if thats everyone, or just me.. but i am pretty weird and strange so probably lol

:D

just did a quick google search and there really is something called 'phantom fat syndrome'

“People who were formerly overweight often still carry that internal image, perception, with them,” says Elayne Daniels, a psychologist in Canton, Mass., who specializes in body-image issues. “They literally feel as if they’re in a large body still.”
Daniels and other experts suspect this may happen because the brain hasn’t “caught up” with the new, leaner body, particularly for people who were obese for many years and then experienced rapid weight loss.
“Body image is a lot harder to change than the actual physical body is,” Daniels says.

interesting .. was hoping to copywrite that phantom fat syndrom them :( bugger lol

I must be the odd one here because when I reached target last year I felt amazing and all the way down with my weight I felt fantastic.
I loved being slimmer, I walked differently, acted differently. The thin person had been allowed to escape.
Why on earth I put weight back on I will never know but this time will make sure I keep that wonderful feeling. A wonderful feeling I had from the first loss.

Miss HarleQuin how can you feel fat. Look at your stats.................

I know you are tiny but gosh what a wonderful achievement. Nearly a stone gone and only a stone to go. Half way there.

Rejoice that the folks of Gotham City will see an enormous change in you lol !!!:D

I think really my self-perception changed when I hit the "healthy" BMI bracket. I really felt like I had achieved something then. Up until that point, I was still overweight or obese, as I had always been.

At least I know I'm not alone in this. ^__^
Perhaps some more toning will do the trick. <3
