No I am always slim. I am sometimes younger than I am and sometimes the age that I am but always slimmer never fat.
I will dream of things I going to do or have done. I also dream of acheiving my goals, helping others and often dream of children. Old houses come into my dreams a lot some are really old. Cottages with no running water, shacks in forests, old houses in towns, old mansions where I am working in the kitchen, a temple where I am a priestess, a tiny room were I live with three children. In all of the dreams I am slim.

I never used to see myself in my dreams - I'm either not in my own body or I am dreaming as myself and therefore looking out.
Now when I do dream and see myself I see myself as overweight but in the dream I often get irritated because its not 'me' - I think this is part of my mind telling me that inside me is the person I am and its time to let her out.

Interesting question! For me, I'm not really aware of what my body looks like - just what it feels like. I'm often trying to run but can't seem to pick up any speed or it's like I'm trying to run through a bog.
On the flip side - I also have flying dreams, but I don't like them that much either, which is weird because I'm a pilot LOL! I guess it's because a) I'd rather be in a plane instead of flying around exposed to the elements and b) I really don't know where to go. It's almost like there are too many choices. I'm sure this explains a lot about my waking life:-)
Usually, in my dreams, I'm just me. I did have one dreams where i was at my goal weight and met the love of my life! lol It was a very good dream!
Goals: 5lbs - 2 lb hand weights - 2/23/10! (already got this, not getting again!) 10 lbs - new sports bras -3/23/10! (already got this, not getting again!) 15 lbs - $10 at fav used bookstore! 20 lbs - 3 lb hand weights 25 lbs - new work out top 30 lbs - new work out pants 35 lbs - workout dvd 40 lbs - 5 lb hand weights 45 lbs - pool pass 50 lbs - bath products 55 lbs - massage 60 lbs - tongue pierced 65 l
generally, i'm not overweight in my dreams but just the other day i had a dream that i was both fat & thin @ once. kinda strange. also, i rarely see faces or know names of anyone in my dreams but i just kind of know who they are. as for ur 2nd ?, i think it is possible if u have the ability. i've never really been able to focus well enough. i'm glad u asked, tho, as i was just thinking about this myself.

If the body is a temple, make it worthy of worship.
I don't usually see myself very often, and I have never (that I remember) seen myself as overweight. This might come to pass, because once in a while I have smoked a cigarette (I quit smoking over 10 years ago) or with my ex... I wake up like OMG!
Prophetic perhaps, but not always. I do NOT like dreams that re-live my past (this life no, others yes) but that is me. I do think we can use dreams to sublimately point us in the 'right' direction that our souls will follow so we can try to understand the chain of events that will follow the path that our soul seeks to venture. TMI ~ perhaps, or not, it's always your/our choice.
When I dream I don't normally see myself. But I do use vacillation when meditating to help me become my new leaner healthier self. I visualize myself eating right, what I look like doing exercises, and wearing clothes that I have always wanted to wear.
