1 Pound Shy of "Onederland" Status!!
I have lost 45 pounds and am sitting pretty at 200 pounds. I feel amazing and I feel skinny even though clearly I am not.

Funny thing happened. I am a teacher at a high school and there was a student's desk wedged close to the wall with a small space for me to squeeze passed the student. I told the student as I was attempting to squeeze through that I am skinny, but not the skinny.... just then I realized that I was skinny enough to squeeze through the small space with no problem. I had to tell the student nevermind.. ;)

I think when you lose weight your mind still thinks of itself as being bigger. I have the same experience with new clothing. I stare at the size L workout pants and tell myself that there is no way that those would fit over my large framed rump, but then they fit. It feels good. I wonder when my mind will get use to being thinner, for the moment I will enjoy the surprises and push my way down into the "Onederlands"! :carrot:

Nice! Congratulations! I think sometimes it takes a while for our mind to adjust to the new body we have. :)

That is so great!!! Congratulations on all your hard work paying off! And I completely understand about the mind part of it too. I'm still having a bit of a hard time not automatically going to the plus-size section of the store when I go to buy new clothes. I know logically that I can now fit into standard sizes (sizes 8 to 10 now), but I still have to remind myself sometimes. I have only been this size for a short while and I know it will take a bit for my brain to catch up. Yours will catch up to the new you too, it just takes time. Congrats again!
