Have you ever looked in the mirror and what you see isn’t really the way it is? For me, when I look in the mirror, I still don’t see the significant weight loss that is very apparent to others.
People tell me all of the time that I am very skinny, but I don’t see that. I see the same person, that overweight woman that got teased in school for my back fact, large thighs and wide face.
Post weight loss there is a something called “phantom fat”. Phantom fat makes a person feel like they are still the previous weight even post weight loss. It has taken me a while to realize that what I see in the mirror IS what it IS.
