Before losing my weight, I use to know what I looked like and accepted it even though I hated it. Now, however, I can look in the mirror one minute and think "cool, I am thin" then the next minute I'm lost back in the mind of a fat girl.
It always is a blessed thing to hear others compliments like my brother at Thanksgiving said "your so skinny now if you turn I can't see you". I was so delighted to hear this, I thanked him and told him how much I love him. However, that never convinces me of anything until I visually see myself in a mirror.
