    Hi mylmat,

    I'm still on my journey and fantasise all the time about being thin :)
    Best of luck with CD, keep posting on Minimins for lots of support if it gets difficult.

    I think we all dream of being a 10 but reality is I love my food too much and a 12/14 would be fine for me.

    When I was younger age abt 13 I was 8.5 stone and all my friends were about 7 so I thought I was fat then when I wasn't. Now im nearly 13 st and would be happier 2 stone lighter but im 44 and it isnt as easy as it was in my 20's.

    I know how happy i was last year losing 3 stone (put back in 5 months), so im going to take it a bit slower this time and think about what I eat. (well thats the theory).

    Sorry gone on a bit here (just re-read it). Anyway, lot of luck :)

    I don't think I really imagined myself being thin. Had done that so many times in the past and never got there. Ended up being disappointed.

    Besides, I couldn't visualise it really.

    I tended to concentrate more on the present and how I felt. Visualising me being in control that day.

    Now I do see myself as slim (well...a lot slimmer), but that took a long time to come. Long after reaching goal.

    Hi mylmat,

    I'm starting tomorrow, weighing 13 stone 3, in a size 16 and wanting to get down to 10 1/2 stone, when I will hopefully be able to break out the size 12s for the first time in a very very long time.

    I don't even think about being any smaller than that - i don't think I have the frame for it. The first adult size I ever bought was a 12, when I was 14. Some people are not destined to be any thinner.

    I couldn't imagine myself slim, not visually anyway, although I did fantasize about how I would feel when I was slim. On a phychological level I still don't feel much different, but on a physical one I feel great:D

    I still don't see myself as slim and look at my clothes and think crikey how do I fit in them!!:eek:

    I guess when you have always been overweight it takes time for your head to adjust.

    GaynorEM - click on the weightloss button at the top of the page.
    Then on the left side you'll see Tools & Quizzes - click weight loss simulator.

    Hope you find it
