There have been times when i've shopped, picked up a pair of pants, looked at them and thought they'd fit and they'd be too small..

But wheni look in the mirror, i think i see myself as bigger...I am noticing in a lot of the pictures we have for progress, I see the girls as looking better or being smaller than myself, but when i read the measurements, I measure smaller even if by 1 inch...and I don't see myself looking the way they do, i see myself bigger...

does anyone else have this problem?

Definitely! I've always said I don't feel like I am that big until I look in the mirror.

and it's weird cause sometimes i perceive myself as being smaller than I am and other times i see myself as bigger (most of the time i see myself bigger). I often had to ask my daughter and DH...am I that big, am i that big...

then my daughter today automatically was like mom ur smaller than her, bu tmaybe ur the same size as the other girl (on the biggest loser dvd) and i was way smaller than both of them...i know that for sure...so i was like UH...thanks but no thanks hun for your input lol

I physically feel smaller..but then look in the mirror, or see a picture of myself and it shocks me... It's bizarre how that happens, isn't it?

I always feel bigger. I look at other people and think that I must look like them and then people tell me that I am smaller. Recently I have put on a bit of weight and I am feeling horrible.
