OK, when I was younger (read, before kids) I always had a great body image...I was skinny and I "felt" skinny. Then, even after I started gaining the weight from the babies and whatever, I still felt skinny. It wasn't until I got on the scale one day to realize I was at 185 lbs that I realized, I am not skinny anymore. It didn't help to see a few horrible pics of me looking not so great.
Anyway, last year I lost most of the weight I put on after the babies. Actually, I was only 2 sizes bigger than my pre-baby size (which really is like one size since they go up by 2), and this could very well be from my expanded hips. But, I still "feel" big. Over the winter I did put a few extra pounds back on, which is why I am working at it again...but, why can't my mind catch up with the facts? Why do I still "feel" big when I am not really that big? I am technically smack dab in the middle of my healthy weight range. I do want to lose a few more pounds (or stay the same, but gain muscle weight).
Anyway, has anyone else had this issue??? Where your image of yourself hasn't caught up with the weight loss.
