In the last few weeks, I've had people tell me I must be at goal weight or that I look like I'm at the right weight and should not lose any more!
I don't understand.
I am obviously not at goal...I still have 35 lbs to lose to be at the TOP range of my healthy BMI.
One women actually argued with me that I was her size (she has always been skinny)and that I do not realistically see myself.
At 5'5" and 185 lbs.....I am still considered obese on the BMI scale.
So what's up with that?
I'm obese but people tell me I'm skinny?
Are they blind?
My theory is that they are so used to seeing me obese (like really,really fat) that this close to goal, I look like normal weight to them.
I still see myself fat,but I don't see myself as obese.
Hopefully I'll really"see" my body when I'm at goal and be satisfied ......flaws and all.
Can't wait to get there!
