Well, anyone at any size can feel that way! It was kind of a rude awakening for me because I had never thought of it that way. I just saw skinny friends complaing about their weight to someone who weighed 100 lbs more than them....
But I guess we can all relate to that feeling, that "fat" feeling, overweight or not : )
Alba, your mom is one wise woman. That is exactly how I feel! Right now I'm at the top of my allowed range (about 4-5 lbs). My clothes do not feel as loose as I'd like them to feel. I feel like I cannot comfortably wear some things because they're a little tight and it pisses me off. It's so stupid because nobody else can see that I'm up a couple of lbs. They just see me at this size. It's all in my head--and there's all kinds of crazy up in there!

And I agree, it's possible to lose the weight even if you aren't there psychologically. I continue to struggle to get my head in the right place and stop reaching for food to fix it. This last week, I decided that every time I start thinking that I'm too fat (which I am not), I'm going to tell myself that I'm really hot, and in a good way! Sometimes it works...
