Weird perception of self
Wednesday, February 22, 2012
Is it just me or do other people think they look like this
but in reality, when they look in the mirror, they realise that they have a flabby tummy, seriously slack thighs, etc etc? When I eat well and exercise the amount I aim for, in my head I look fab (maybe it's all the endorphins?) but can't seem to match this picture with what I look like in a mirror. I suppose I have lost (and gained and lost again!) 5 stone (50 - 55 lbs). Normally distorted perception of self occurs the other way round with people who are skinny or perfectly 'normal' and yet see themselves as humongous. What I would like to know is when my body will match the image my head!
