I know people who think they are fat, even when they are thin. They look in a mirror and the image looking back is big, but in reality, they are normal sized.
I am pretty much the exact opposite. My body size is much larger in reality than it is in my head. When I look in the mirror, I see round, yes, but mostly I see myself as a fabulous babe. :-)
It often comes as a shock when I see someone on television who is my size. To me, they look so much fatter than how I see myself. I have a hard time connecting the dots. And I wonder if this is one of the reasons it has been hard for me to maintain a healthier weight.
In any case, this week my doctor has stated, gently but firmly, that my weight is a health issue. He has suggested I should do something about it.
So today, I joined Weight Watchers and hope that I am able, for today at least, to eat a healthier (and smaller) diet.
And maybe it will be cool to have a body that actually reflects my self image.
