    Why do I look slim in the mirror wearing clothes, but in my swim costume/underwear I still look as fat as I did before & I've lost 3 stone.
    Could it be that I avoided mirrors when half dressed? I don't actually rememeber.
    I know I always checked myself when clothed.
    Anyone feel the same or got any ideas?

    Hello Cherry Plum,

    Oh thank god someone else feels this way. I did LL last year and got down to 9 1/2 stone - BUT I wanted to carry on losing weight because I looked so bad.......really lumpy legs etc.......I regained weight, and am now attempting to do LL again after trying other methods, but don't feel I need to lose as much weight as I look at pictures of me at 12 stone and I think I look absolutely fine.

    I'm a bit worried that I will start obsessing about this again though when I get to 12 stone!!!

    Maybe you need a tighter costume with lots of licra and a nicely structured bust area.

    I put on my costume the other day and was quite pleased with what I saw - but then it is a Triumph and very structured. Everything was nicely pulled into place and I liked it!!

    Why don't you nip into a department store over the weekend and try on a few smaller sizes you might be pleasantly surprised.

    Maybe I should get a photo taken in underwear now, because I have got at least another 3 stone to go, then I'll be able to see the difference.

    Yeh FP I might just get a new swimming costume, the other doe's look slightly baggy when I get out of the pool.

    I think when I look in the mirror I just can't get past the fat on my hips & legs, where as when they are covered I can't see the fat.
