Default Mind games/body image

Sometimes I feel so good about the way I look and other times I think "I'm so fat,how could anyone tell I've lost any weight at all".

I wonder how long it will be (how much weight I will have to lose) before I quit thinking I'm the fattest person in the room...

When I weighed the same before, I didn't think I was fat, just "thick", so what is my deal?

Part of me thinks this is an issue of body image and part of me thinks my mind is playing games on itself.

Does anyone have this problem or, have you in the past? If so, please share!

Oh gosh yes!

Sometimes feel so thin and attractive, only to catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror or see an unflattering photo! Or I walk in to a room where there are thin, beautiful women and go from fit and beautiful to big fat heifer in seconds flat. I hate that feeling!

I've lost 50 pounds, I look pretty good even though I'm still very much overweight, and I have 30 pounds left to go.

However, these feelings happen less now than it did before. I feel much better in general. I hope that when I reach my goal, it stops happening at all! That I will always feel good about myself and that I will stop sizing myself up against skinny women to see where I compare.
"Nothing tastes as good as thin feels!"

"Losing weight is hard. Being fat is hard. Pick your hard."

Total Goal Weight:

I weigh myself every day. It keeps me accountable.

Totally not alone. I fell off the wagon for a little while, and felt so fat. I thought surely I had gained a lot because I looked chubby when I looked in the mirror. Then I finally went on the scale and realized I hadn't gained at all. Shortly after I felt so thin and happy... Now I'm back to seeing pudge, even though I've lost a little again. I just try to remind myself I'm the same or have lost, even if I'm not as thrilled with myself.
