Glad that you are not letting the fear of the unknown stop you from focusing on your short term goals. I, too, have never been thin, and it is nearly impossible for me to picture what I will look like.... but I think I can picture myself at around 225 lbs now, and I think I like that person and want to get there :)
I don't remember ever being thin either. My mom says I was, but I only remember wearing adult clothes in the 4th grade. I believe if we love ourselves now and make the journey to a thinner version of ourselves a happy one, than whatever the outcome becomes, we will embrace it and be happy. Good Luck! 2437 days ago
I'm very much like you in the sense that no matter how much I tell myself I want something I always tend to harbor some degree of fear of the unknown. I get so caught up in what could happen that I often choose to quit instead of facing uncertainty. You don't sound like the kind of person who does that so I think your fear is more of a motivator which is good. As long as you don't expect losing weight to fix all of your problems then you'll more than likely like the person you're going to be.
