Finding body acceptance

I am trying to get to a place where I accept my body for what it is. I’ve lost a lot of weight after sleeve surgery, but I don’t feel any different. I don’t feel smaller. I wish I did though. Does anyone else struggle with this?

Truthfully, I’m just the opposite. I don’t feel obese, I feel like the old average men. Maybe that’s because I spent so many years yo-yo dieting. I hope you can find body acceptance someday soon, no matter your size. You deserve that peace.

I think I look and feel better, even with sagging skin. Still gets weird sometimes when I see myself in the mirror, though. So many years looking so different.

There are times where I can’t help thinking that the physical “ex” me is me right now. The changes are a lot to take in!

I understand exactly how you feel. I’m struggling with this as well. When I look in the mirror, I look the exact same as I did pre-surgery, which I know is impossible. I try and tell myself that my mind just needs to catch up with reality.
