Believe it or not, even at a smaller weight you can feel unlovable. I thought hitting the 130's would make a huge difference and while it has pushed me to reach the 120's harder, I still feel bad sometimes. But what I remember about being heavier is how I felt totally ugly, not worth any sort of nice clothes, and yet I could acknowledge that a larger woman, larger than myself, who was better dressed and wore a smile on her face was more attractive than myself. It was their confidence, sense of style, and smile that really made them outshine me easily. So I often asked myself, "Why does she look so good in those clothes while I think I don't?"
We are our own harshest critics. Always will be.
