The picture here is after a 50 lb weight loss. And while I am happy with where I am now, I am still about 20 lbs away from being considered “normal” weight, according to my BMI (which is, of course, bullshit). My doctors still treat me like I’m fat, so it’s not so much about what I think I’m “supposed to” look like as it is a reality of numbers.
