I just read a blog that made me think.
Why is it when we lose weight, we have so much difficulty seeing ourselves as what we've become rather than what we were?
It's not as if I spend a great deal of time in front of mirrors. In fact, the only full-length one is in my daughter's bedroom.
Yet, when I think of me, I see this chubby woman who's perky.
That was me a year ago, but it's not who I am today.
How do you change your view of yourself to coincide with the reality. Or, is this the other side of the coin of not realizing how heavy I was?
Food has become my enemy. I have to be constantly vigilant to eat enough. It's almost as if I replaced overeating with mild anorexia.
At times, I'm hungry, so I eat, but most meals I have to remind myself to eat them.
