Do you consider yourself fat?

What makes you think that? How much overweight do you think you think you are?
No bashing here, just wondering who different people feel about this.

  • Yes. According to my evil wii fit trainer I am fat. I need to lose about 35 pounds.

  • Yes, and I am overweight. But my Husband (whose opinion matters most!) still thinks I'm beautiful/gorgeous/sexy and shows/tells me countless times daily. He hates that I think I'm fat. Then everyone else and their grandma also hates that I think I am and tells me I don't look even close to how much I weigh and call me skinny, which I'm sooooo not. It makes me feel good that my Husband, first and foremost, and others see a thinner person than I do..but I don't think I ever will see what they do. I'm just happy I'm able to lose weight now since I got my Mirena taken out and switched to Paragard. I've lost 7lbs over the last two weeks, which is a big deal to me, considering I couldn't lose a single pound when I had the Mirena..and believe me, I worked my ass off trying! I haven't even been exercising lately..I hope this keeps up so I can shed my Mirena weight!

  • At 5'7 and 145 pounds I feel fat every day. It's supposed to be healthy weight...but for some reason I don't see it that way.

  • Yes. I have always went between 115-118 for the longest time and now I'm 138. I doubled my pant size. No matter how hard I work out or what I eat I can't get rid of this extra weight.

  • I am 15 pounds overweight. I think it is because I quit smoking in 2003 and because I have been through menopause. I need to really get moving and get rid of that 15 pounds. My metabolism is slowing down. Again. I took Thyroxin because of hypothyroidism when I was age 18 through about 26 and I probably should take it again but my Family Practice doctor says my test results are okay. @@

  • At 5'8" I am overweight at 175 lbs. I should probably lose at least 25 lbs. When I hate it enough, I will. Until then, any unsolicited diet advice is unwelcome and rude!

  • Im a little over weight but very comfortable with myself. So yea and no. Sometimes I do when I wear a particular outfit, but oh well if you don't like it don't look at it. Right? I think all women have some kind of body issue.
