Height: 5.2

Default Body image issues

I have lost around 20 pounds and I am wearing clothes I could not fit into before, but in spite of that I cannot yet pluck up enough courage to go for a walk in places where people would see me wearing jeans or tights. I see other people don't care about this, so I wonder if staying indoors and limiting my social life to working and going out with friends may be getting int a social fobia. I am scared of what others may think when they see me, and at the same time I know my appearence is not out of the ordinary. My weight is within a "normal" range now, but still, I feel scared. Do you think this could be a question of body image --not having realized yet that I look better-- or a relational problem --being afraid of meeting people?
