Ok so ive decided something is wrong wit my brain haha i know im very dramatic but hey dats me!

Ok so my problem is everytime i get into a smaller size i tink im fat again coz the clothes actually fit me unlike the old clothes dat are now huge on me. its like my old clothes tell me ive lost weight and other people but my new clothes dont they make me look dare i say it normal. haha! i wore a size 12 trousers 2day for the first time since i was 12 now albeit they are a big size 12 but still i shud have been delighted but all day i was seeing myself as fat.

Does anyone else have this problem??? I think actually putting on clothes dat fit is making me feel fat hahaha!

YES! I get that all the time! I just bought age 13-14 clothes [insert embarrassed face here] the other day and then look in the mirror and because they're not totally baggy I feel like I've lost no weight at all.

It's weird what our mind does to us...

It was just tops and a jacket I got in the New Look kids sale! I reckon their kids clothes must be quite big!? I just thought I would try them on because they were cheaper and my mum said they looked like they would fit and lo and behold they did! I'm a size 10 on top and 10/12 on bottom!

I think my legs still look huge in the mirror when i'm trying on clothes. I noticed that in Asda on monday, they were actually selling size 11 and 13 jeans in the ladies section. That would b great if you end up an inbetweenie size : )

Well I agree because once you get used to your new weight you feel big again. I hate that.

i think we settle into our bodies very quickly and i agree that once you buy clothes that are more fitted and smaller you feel like you're filling your clothes which means it is just a psychological reaction.

totally get it tho, i feel much slimmer in my baggy clothes! to be fair tho the size 18s i'm wearing today are pretty much indecent without a belt and with a belt its all gathered at the waist which probably isnt doing me any favours!! nevermind! xx

Hiya

I'm not at the stage yet where I need to buy new clothes but I do remember reading some articles a while back about the psychological effect of losing so much weight. Apparently after we have been overweight quite some time and then lose it quickly our brains have a hard time adapting to our new size and so we still think of ourselves as being big, even though the scales, the new wardrobe, the mirror shows we are slim(mer).

Maybe this is where the BMI comes in handy, if your BMI is in the normal range then you *know* you're at a healthy weight, regardless of what your brain is trying to tell you!

Congratulations on getting into those size 12 trousers, can't wait to be able to share than feeling with you in the future!
