    When I was a size 30/32 and tryed something on in a shop and it was to tight I would say things like it must be a small size 30/32 or things in this make always come up smaller.If something was tight after a couple of washes I had washed it wrong and that was why it was small.Not often would I say I must have put on weight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Now that I can get into a size 14 top 18/20 bottom I have started saying things like well it is cut big or I must have streached it while ironing it.
    Why am I making excuses for wareing smaller cloths????
    I can understand not wanting to admit needing bigger cloths,but why do I seem scared to admit I can get smaller cloths????????????
    I know I am finding it hard to see myself as others see me so perhaps that is one reason for it as I do not wont people to say things like she thinks she is a size 14 who is she trying to kid.
    Does anyone else feel this way???????
    It can not just be me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Love Libbie x

    You're definitely not alone Libbie - it takes time for your brain to catch up with your body! Give it time honey ;)

    My brain and my eyes don't match.
    I can see I have lost weight by the photos....
    I know I have lost weight by the smaller size clothes.
    People keep telling me I have lost weight.....
    But.......when it comes to mirrors I can't see a difference.

    Self image is such a strange thing.

    I agree, I think it was Mike that said it takes 6 months for your brain to register weight loss,
    So wierd, I cannt see it in the mirror at all either so you are not alone in this, sometimes I do see it when I put clothes on and dont flab over but naked, blurgh dont do that! I see exactly what I saw before!

    I'm the same. If size 12or 14 trousers fit me I always think "oh well they're generous" nice to know it's not just me!!!!
