I always thought I was fat. Even as a 120 lb teenager who swam, sang, and biked at lot. My Mom hada poor body image and tried to pass that on to me. She almost succeeded. I realized when I was in college that the problem was mostly in her head, so I didn't have to choose to listen. Still I thought I was fatter or at least had more of a tummy/hips than my friends. I'm a pear. oh,well.
Sunday, my husband and I went on a little photo safari around the city that we live closest to. Had a great time. We both wore shorts and tees.. NO PROBLEM! I weigh much more today than I did 40 years ago, but I'm feeling so good about myself and my success ( 30 lbs since 1/13) that I wore shorts in public. I was relaxed and happy.
I am really looking looking forward to exercising each day. I track my food - on track most days. I struggle a bit to not go over the fat level. The plan is working and I've never felt better about myself.
