how u see yourself VS how others see you
So i've had this issue come up a lot lately. I grew up as the big girl..I've basically been overweight since I was a child and have been up to nearly 250 at one point and never went under 200. Now that I've finally started losing the weight and stayed consistent I've noticed that when I see a lot of people at the gym and talk about how I am trying to lose more weight I've been getting a lot of negative responses. I still see myself as the fat girl and talk like I'm still the fat girl but people lately have been talking to me as if I'm crazy to even think about my weight because I look 'skinny' to them (I guess my height hides my weight well), my friend even told me she thinks I have self esteem issues because I am continuing on my weight loss journey, and on top of that my overweight friends are always telling me now that they can't relate to me because they see me as skinny girl who has it easier.
My whole identity, personality and attitude is based on me being the fat girl, I identify the most with people who struggle with their weight and now my interactions have started 2 become awkward, when I look in the mirror I still see the fat girl but people around me keep telling me you look normal not overweight. I just feel like I'm in a weird place now. Anybody else go through this?
