Do you think you are WAYYY fatter than you are?

I am 5'3" and I weigh somewhere between 150 and 160. I feel like I look like I am 250. I see huge women and think that's what I look like. I hate it. I am fat right now and I'm not used to it,because I gained a lot of weight when I quit smoking but even when I'm normal (120's) I feel fat so now you can imagine why I feel so huge. What should I do to get help with this? Lose weight? lol

  • I am about 5'4" and before pregnancy I was 145 lbs. and a size 10. I was very self conscious back then. I gained a lot of weight during pregnancy and now almost 3 years post partum I am down to 152 lbs and a size 13. I am happy with my results considering I was a size 18 and almost 200 lbs after pregnancy. I laughed "why on earth did I think I was huge as a size 10?" My attitude has changed big time

  • i'm 5'2 & about 140 & yes, i feel like a COW. My Dr. says i should be at least 120...screw her...LOL! 20 lbs is a lot of fat on short people. 20 lbs on a tall person spreads out better...ya know?

  • I am the opposite. I feel less fat than I really am. I am in decent shape, but I can't lose weight.
