I still find myself turning sideways to get through aisles in the store, eyeballing chairs to see if I might not fit and going shopping in the wrong department in the store. Does anybody have any advice on how I can "see" what is in the mirror? I still feel exactly the same. This happened to me once before and I ended up eating myself back up in weight. I'm wanting the whole goal experience forever.

What worked for you?.

How did you do it?.

Did you seek counselling?.

Thanks everyone..

I found that taking current photos and comparing them to older ones really underscored how much my body changed. I knew the pictures didn't lie! As for my mental image, after a while it adjusted but it happened more slowly than the physical changes..

I would say if the discrepancy really bothers you, counseling might be a good idea. Weight loss is often as much mental as it is physical...

I've heard it takes a year or so for people's minds and eyes to catch up with reality...

There was another post on here before about this and someone posted about doing Pilates. They said it helps so reconnect with your body.

It does take time, congrats on your progress so far...

Thanks! A year? Wow. That makes me feel a bit better that I'm not the only one..

I just wish I knew of an effective counsellor KWIM? I never thought about the photos. I'll take one today...

I've had the same problem, only the other way around. I never let myself 'see' how big I'd gotten. 289 and a tight size 24... I couldn't understand why men weren't attracted to me and also thought my jeans were shrinking in the dryer. Yeah, right... I finally woke up and saw how big I'd gotten (depressing) and nowadays I look at myself in the mirror and look at the stuff I like.

Try looking at yourself in the mirror each day and find one thing you like. That might help to change your view of yourself...

I do so agree about the photos and be sure to put them side by side. "Photoshop" them if you can. I have only taken one set of comparison photos so far, but even the "after" photos didn't really register with my brain until they were right next to the "before" shots. That's when there's no denying the changes...everywhere!..

The pictures def help. I still can't get over how much I have lost in such a short amount of time and it's hard to look in the mirror and actually see it. Also seeing friends that I havent seen in a few months that didnt know I was losing weight asked me how much weight I lost and were just in shock of how different I looked. Try taking measurements too if you havent already because that definately doesnt lie..

Three months into T&M and I still see myself as the fat me. When I look at space I need to traverse, I tend to compensate as if I was 60 pounds heavier. When I was half way through my losses and I realized I didn't see what others did, I started taking nude pictures of myself on my weigh in day with my camera phone. Somehow it's easier to see it when it's a picture. The mirror I still look fat, but the pictures tell me I"m at my goal weight. I like doing it this way because I can delete the picture after I've viewed it.

My self image and my self confidence are 180 from where I started...

For me, I see the changes, I know I look good (not on all days) but when people look at me for more than a few seconds, my mind still wonder if they're looking because they think i'm fat...
