I’ve been on a new diet recently, and it’s had really good results. I started out 123.8Kg and a little over a month later, as of today, I’m down to 111.9Kg.
Now obviously by the numbers, this is a great result, but the sad fact is that I dont feel different. I dont feel like I look different either, despite what friends and family have said. I’m wondering if being obese (that word cuts like a knife, doesn’t it?) effects you psychologically more than we think. This then, after loosing 10cm off my stomach circumference, which should be clearly obvious – just isn’t to me in the mirror. I wonder if I might have some kind of body image problem, or worse still, a kind of eating disorder?
I like to think that I am a level-headed person, but over the past 3 or 4 years I’ve been becoming increasingly self-conscious about my body – to the point that I no longer go swimming! I’m not really sure what to do from here, but since this diet has been working, I guess I’ll just keep doing it, and hopefully, when my current clothes simply do not fit any longer, I’ll feel differently.
