Do you see yourself as thin yet?

I am new to sleeving. Only 4 weeks out and I have runny nose when I'm full and that feeling another bite is trouble.

All researchers and practitioners, including bariatric clinicians, should ideally continually examine and assess their own results, making changes where and when necessary, to ensure they are delivering the best outcomes for their patients.

And to hijack a bit here, while I think it is imperative that we have all the info we need to gain and maintain optimal health, it's also imperative that our doctors don't try to fit square pegs into round holes. Our bodies are all different and my body might respond differently than yours to a certain stimuli, diet, etc. Or what is considered an empirically high cholesterol reading for the "normal" population might be normal for me.

I’m reading through these posts. Perception. Our self perception is off. Since, I recognized that in myself, I’ve sought to understand that. Why is it broken, “misgadged”? Why does my inside hardly ever match? I feel that if I understood why, then I could adjust that in myself.
My lowest weight, post surgery, was 176. I have regained 39 pounds! I look at pictures of myself at my lowest, and feel great about my appearance. But, I remember those moments, in my mind, I was not internally feeling as my outsides appeared.

I still feel fat after 70 pounds down. My co workers always compliment me on how skinny and good I look but I still see a fat person in the mirror and it really messed with my confidence. I didn’t take measurements. I was just tired of counting calories, weighing in, etc for over a decade that I try not to let dieting weight loss rule my life like it once did. I’m hoping once at my goal of 175 I will see myself as thin. Maybe it’s a mental thing. I don’t know but I don’t see myself as thin yet.
