I think that feeling overweight is an interesting phenomenon in terms of how your mind and your body are communicating. Some people who are technically well over their ideal body mass index, don’t feel overweight at all, whereas many people within a good weight range for their body size battle constantly with feeling that they are too fat. If you genuinely believe that you look good, then your mental state can override many of your physical signs that contradict your beliefs. And if your mind tells you there is something wrong with your physical body, then you can seem to yourself to be overweight when you’re not.
