Oh yes! I've been there.

I was pretty ignorant to how I looked for many years, which is how it got so bad, physically, while my self image was still fine. In some ways it was a blessing, as I never let my weight impact my life in significant ways. But part of having an a-ha moment on the scale was coming to the realization that my lack of awareness not only wasn't fooling anyone else, but it could really harm my health down the road. I was self conscious after losing weight and still have those moments. But I remind myself of how very far I've come, and worrying about a little back fat is a long way from worrying about fitting in a seat!
