Anyone ever have weight loss dreams?

I have never had a dream like this before. Last night I dreamed that I lost 130 pounds. It was so real and vivid, in my dream I felt what it was like to be thin. I was so happy and...carefree. It was unreal. I woke up elated thinking it was true. I looked down and realized it was a dream. My usual somber mood took over again.

I have been overweight for years. I started gaining weight 10 years ago and have gradually gotten bigger and bigger. This is my third REAL try at weight loss. I have a feeling that this time I just may do it.

I dream a lot and in my dreams when I dream of myself I am always thin. I'm guessing my mentality is a thin girl in a larger body.

I don't remember a dream specifically about my size, but the last time I was on LC for a long time (over a year at that point) I dreamed that I was at a hotel with a buffet, and I could magically eat all the carbs I wanted without any bad consequences!

I went to town on those carbs, and I could fully sense and taste every bite. That was a good dream .

That is my mentality too. I wasn't always overweight so I remember what its like to be thin. I have always felt like a thin person trapped in a fat body. Sometimes I forget I am fat until I see myself in a mirror or a picture. And I always do a double take.

You can do it!!!


I think the neatest part of this dream was my body was not perfect. It had imperfections yet I was happy anyway I don't want perfection. Just improvement.

A friend of mine with a little problem with booze and food had a dream. He dreamed he made a ice cream float with beer!
