Mind playing tricks on me?

    Sometimes I swear I'm getting fatter and fatter by the day. I mean I don't really look it. I look skinny, yet I feel fat. A few days ago I noticed that I'm getting a bit of a fat neck. It's getting wider, nearly the same width as my face, accompanied by a small roll of fat round the back of my head, so I can't tilt it all the way back like I used to. But when I ask people about it they swear I'm getting thinner and that it's just in my head.

    Is my mind really playing tricks on me? Am I just being insecure about my weight? I swear it does feel like I'm getting a little chubby, which is weird considering I usually eat less and do a lot of walking these days. :dunno:

    Perhaps it's a combination of you gaining weight in some areas and as a consequence your mind has starting imagining/seeing other parts of your body gaining weight.

    Possibly. I stopped thinking about it a few days ago and now I feel and look thinner again. Maybe it is just in my head. I'm paranoid. I kinda have a fear of getting REALLY fat.

    It's possible that the fear you have of becoming fat is playing it's part in your perception of yourself. It sounds like this comes in phases though.
