I posted this on the 12wbt forums last night and thought I would pop it in here as well…
Does anyone struggle with figuring out what they look like now? Sounds bizarre I know but having lost nearly 50kgs I’m at a bit of a loss to figure out what size I am. I go into clothes shops (that I’ve never shopped in before) and pick up the size 14 tops and they fit but to me, I’m still a size 24/26 person.
I wonder if it’s worth getting a friend to point out a someone down the street that is of a similar size so I have a point of reference. I also wonder if this is something that everyone experiences or just those that have changed their body shape/size. Or is it just a case of my head having to catch up with what my body has achieved and one day I’ll believe what the mirror is trying to tell me?
Would love to hear of others experiences with this and what might have worked to reconcile the me that I see with the me that others see.
