In the Mirror
Monday, June 02, 2008
I wonder how long it takes for the brain to catch up with the body. When I tell people that one of my weight loss goals, so to speak, was to be able to respond "average" to the "body type" question on online dating sites (should I ever create another profile), often they say back to me "but couldn't you say that now?"
Interesting, how I don't see myself the way others see me. When I look in the mirror, or at a picture, I still see fat. Of course, when I compare pictures, like the ones on my SparkPage, I can see a difference, but on a day-to-day basis, I still see myself as grossly overweight. I wonder how long that will take to go away? Will it be after I have plastic surgery to get rid of the sagging stomach skin? Or will it ever go away?
