    this is going to make me look well dumb but its strange i woke up this morning and i looked into the mirror and i looked thinner then i did yesterday!!

    i know its proberly impossible to lose weight overnight!!

    do you think it is the way i see myself?, from one day to the next say i felt rotten and looked at the mirror id feel like a right fatty boom booom!! but is that the begining of positive thinking, im totally ashamed of myself and my life at the moment becuase most people have been putting me down so all ive seen is negativity surly thinking this way is a start to gettin completely back to the happier me from a few months ago!!

    Positive thinking is an exellent weight loss method. And it makes you happier, unfortunately I still have to perfect this technique but good lighting can also help!

    i have always struggled with my weight/body image since i was about 11 which is so sad! ive never been particularly fat or anything, just not slim and tall. after finally getting out of serious eating disorders im feeling better about my body image, though i still have issues with the way i look adn somehow think i wont be happy until im thinner! its a sortof ongoing circle where i beat myself up for it and then feel ok the way i am and then feel bad etc etc.. i feel like ill never get out of it! i have a boyfriend and he thinks im gorgeous, and i do get compliemented quite alot, but in my head i still fight against what i think i should look like, how i should eat, etc etc. does anyone else have this?

    Maybe you just started to loose some baby fat, people don't stop growing until 21.
    Thats what happened to me when i was about 16 and this does still happen to me, naturally loose abit of weight overnight, i've lost all my baby fat now!!! Without doing any excercise :eek:
    But scientifically proven that people do loose some calories during sleep, not laods but just a little, not very noticeable

    I haven't had eating disorders but I am not happy with the way I look despite being quite slim. I absolutely hate the way no matter how hard I work my thighs etc still look really big. I want to be able to look in the mirror and see a nice large gap between them. Basically I want supermodel legs. I also tend to go on a healthy eating/minimal eating phase and then something happens and I switch back to eating chocolate etc, and find that I don't actually care what I'm doing, then I step onto the scales and think 'Oh my God!' and start all over. What I really need to do is to find a way to stay on a sensible eating plan whilst trying to lose weight (not much, but just a little). It's so hard isn't it?

    yeh this is exactly what i do, jump between not caring and feeling who gives a **** anyway, and then feeling **** about myself and going to the gym loads and eating less! i wish i could just always eat sensibly and lose weight gradually, which is the only way!

    It might have had more to do with when you eat. i have alot of body issues and am trying to get over it but its hard. i find that if i have a big dinner but at like 6, instead of 8 then have a light snack at say 10 i wake up slimmer than if i whip out the biscuits at like 11.

    Ive lost loads of weight because of the French diet. Its lots of meat and veg and hardly any carb or fat.

    And mirrors can be deceptive. I went through a phase where, whenever I'd come home drunk, I'd look in the mirror and literally see myself as morbidly obese. But I was just hallucinating because of all the vodka. Scary.

    Its not impossible to lose weight overnight, infact its quite common and will probably happen to you several times a week..

    I always feel fat now, cos in the summer i did mad dieting (fruits+veg mostly with no choc/crisps etc) and 3 hours excise... and dropped down to size 6 (IT WAS NOT HEALTHY! I lost the little cleavage i had...)

    but now i feel really fat cos i'm back to my size 8-10 (i know, i know it's not bad...but i just feel fat...)...

    serious eating problem...

    i also calorie count (even with fruits...)
