Mental block

by kennigriggs on 01-26-2016 at 10:34 AM
I am down to 188. I bought jeans that are not plus size. I can see the smaller me in pictures, why do I still see the "fat" me in the mirror? I would post photos but they are all bra/panty pics and not pretty! Anyone else have this problem? My heaviest weight was 250. Was 240 before surgery. Very frustrated with myself.

It's really been slow progress.

My daughter and I are going to attempt a walk around the neighborhood in the morning. I am having trouble getting in enough fluids because it still hurts when I swallow, but
