Some day it will pop in my head that I am normal... Thats the word I always used... I don't like the word thin or skinny
Thanks everyone for being so kind
I know exactly how you feel. I've got a case of body dysmorphic disorder. I went from 250 to 129 and I still can't let someone film me or take my picture. I do feel better, but the "big" mind set is still there. You know, someone overweight once asked me, "how does it feel to be thin now?" I had to be honest, it feels the same as when you used to be big. I don't feel different. I still have "fat" days, i still feel guilty if I skip a day of working out or slip up. Like I think sometimes if I eat one cupcake, I'll gain all my weight back! Of course I made my goal in Dec, so I've only been maintaining for three months, so I'm hoping all of this will go away one day. But my old body image still resides in my head and I wish I could see myself as normal! I also feel ungrateful when i feel that way. I don't like feeling that way! But only time will tell. I wish you the best of luck!
