Default anyone feel fat when they're thin?

I was thinking earlier this evening--

There are days when I feel fat and flabby and then there are days when I feel thinner and toned.

Anyone still feel fat when they reach their target goal weight (i.e. emotionally, psychologically, excess skin)? Or do they finally feel thin?

I think when you look at something for so long (your body) that sometimes it is hard to see it for what it truly is. Everyone tells me how thin I am am and I know how much weight I have lost yet the only time it really sinks in is when I take my jeans out of the dryer,, everytime I find myself saying are those really mine they are so small. You know the saying beer goggles well I think I have heavy goggles. When I see myself in the mirror I say Yeah I look ok, but I don't think I see myself the way others see me. It's a process I know in time I will see myself the way others see me. I can't expect to see a picture in a new light after looking at it for a lifetime.

Definitely. I have days when I feel about 3 sizes too big for my clothes and other days when I feel trim and confident. In reality, it can't be more than a 5-lb fluctuation (and probably not even that), and I'm definitely the same size. I figure I'm just a little mental. =)

Well, I *do* feel fat right now, but I've still got a ways to go until goal.

However, for many years I weighed 140, a good weight for my height, and I felt fat then too.

If I ever get back there, I swear I will be grateful, thankful and giddy with happiness.

ETA: I will add that I feel thinner at 165 on my way DOWN from my HW, than I did on the way UP there.

Fresca - agreed. my weight has fluctuated quite a bit and when i was around 140 on my way DOWN it felt so good and thin. Now that I'm back up from 125 I feel huge. Sometimes now when I go up a few lbs I feel fatter than I did at my HW - which is just silly! Crazy the mental games we play with ourselves...

Oh yes, definitely. It's an image issue. I've been overweight most of my life, so the perception of myself is that I'm fat no matter what. Trying to work on that though.

I keep struggling with my mental image..I have lost nearly 34 lbs but I still see myself as huge. The only time I find myself real thin is when I complete my 90 minutes workout session in the gym...I keep myself comparing with others in terms of their weight and how they look at their current weight.

Now other thing that affects this is the compliments or the surprised looks you get from the people, I lost nearly 34 lbs in four & half months and then I stalled, its been more than three months & I'm not losing anything. While I was losing I used to get regular compliments from my co-workers and family members about how thin I look and I used to feel really thin..sometimes more than I was actually ..then I have stopped getting it ..as my weight is same since last three months and now I feel fatter than 6 months back

Anyone have the opposite problem?

Since I've been on my latest weight loss venture, I've lost over 40 pounds. I think that I'm thinner than I am. I went on a cruise recently, and all the pictures I've taken reinforce the fact that I've got a long way to go.

i actually feel thin most days. i think we just have bad days sometimes where we feel bad about ourselves no matter what. but even on those days when i have a meal that just makes me feel STUFFED i can look at my tummy and it's a LOT better than it used to be. even poking it out as far as humanly possible it's not as big as it used to be. so i'm pretty comfy with the way i look now and never really feel HUGE.....

I feel better than I did starting out, by a longshot. But yes I still see the overhanging belly that is NOT all skin, and I see areas like my hips, thighs and buttocks that need toning badly. I don't feel fat though not like I did before.

There are some days I feel thin and fit. Most days I do not.
