I finally figured out why, even at a size 10, I still see myself as fat. OK, it's true that my BMI is still in the unhealthy range (by 11lbs!) but I'm wearing a 10 jeans (I have 8s hanging up in my bathroom now, never thought that would happen!)
. But why do I still see myself as fat? I can look in the mirror and be thrilled with the reflection and I'm pretty happy with pictures of me these days so what's going on here?
It's my point-of-view! My proportions haven't changed so from my perspective I can still look down and see my tummy sticking out from under my breasts. I perpetually look 4-5 months pregnant.
Sure, I've still got 11lbs to go until I'm finally out of that "overweight" BMI range and 25lbs until I reach my ultimate goal but now that I've figured out why I still see myself as "fat" and started to change my perspective on it, I'm pretty darn happy with the progress I've made! And maybe I'll start adding in more core-toning exercises so I can have view I like better... from my perspective, anyway
