As a reality check, just to make sure that I haven't developed some kind of eating disorder or become dysmorphic, I run these conversations by my husband of 22 years, who has seen my body at many different weights and stages, and he is as perplexed as I am and agrees that I am HARDLY "too thin."
I don't know what is up with people sometimes, I really don't...

However, twice during my 65-pound loss she has said something like, "You have done great! But I think that is enough weight to lose." Once at about 30 pounds, and again a few weeks ago, when I was at about 60 total. (I was very clear with her both times that I had nearly 100 pounds to lose, and I was going to lose it, so get used to it!)
