I think it should be the opposite - a thin woman looking in the mirror and seeing a fat one. That's what I always saw, even when I was 117 pounds.
Me 2! I was never 117 though, but when I got to 188 i thought I was still huge. Family were telling me I didnt need to lose anymore and I was looking sick.
I read that our mental body image is 6 months behind our current body size. I believe thats right b/c when I was smaller i kept thinking I was still 250lbs but now that Im 220 I think I look like I did when I was 188 even though the sz 12 have been long gone!
