OMG thats so me! Its wierd...I agree with whoever it was above (sorry cant remember who!) said that if I am standing on my own, somtimes Im like Damn u look good! haha but then if I stand next to my mum or sister or if Im walking through a shopping center in a crowd with mirrors Im like woah :shock: Im HUGE :? *sigh* but yeah I also see myslef as smaller...just yesterday I was shopping (op shopping! :D) and picked up a size 16 singlet, I was thinking that it looked REALLY big for a size 16 and it would fit me no probs, maybe even be a bit loose..well I put it on (stretched it on! :roll: ) and it is skin tight and only comes down just under my boobs because its stretched so much :roll: I definately think Im smaller that i am...I do it all the time :roll:

I think I'm smaller than I am too. Until I see the photo's of myself, or get stuck in those food court chairs.
I recently bought a 'you beaut' digital camera with 12x optical zoom and 7.1MP. I got my mum to take a picci of me to show her how to use it. Well this damn thing has a feature called ZOOM for when you are reviewing photo's. I damn near died when I zoomed in on my photo. My chin was huge and my face looked so puffy. I got a huge shock. I think I'll go back to my film camera, at least I looked ok in those pics. :(

Oh - I'm SO glad this topic was started!!!

I agree with Jewels, and Tegan, and Vanessa COMPLETELY. I feel bigger now then I ever did at 120+kg. It's so sad!!! Whilst I feel happy... And sexy... I feel HUGE!

I hope I snap out of it... Because I want to acknowledge how far I've come! It just doesn't seem real... It seems too easy!!!

I have this image in my head that im alot smaller than i actually am. Bit like being anerexic and thinking that your fat! I know i have put on alot of weight since I had my daughter and then my son but I somehow think that im still small.
Does anyone else feel the same??

No don't have that problem!

I am sure you will be back in those 'skinny jeans' before you know it!

Good luck on your weight loss journey!! :D
