I cannot answer this question for you, but I can tell you my own experience. I was always the skinny one that people hated then due to family situations I gained more weight that I knew what to do with and since then it has been a yo yo battle for me. I think what struck me the most wasn't the scale but when I saw a picture of me mid last year in where what should have been one of the happiest days of my life (graduating from college) I looked like the most uncomfortable person in the room. Like many I looked in the mirror in a hurry and I cannot recall the last time I owned a full length mirror. My wardrobe consists of mainly black clothing and overly big tshirts and jeans to blend into the crowd. What happened to that woman that was so sure of herself, the one that would dance the night away and enjoyed meeting new people and sharing stories. Somewhere in the midst of all this weight gain she disappeared and who took her place was someone that was miserable, depressed and had a hard time climbing a flight of stairs. When you look at the mirror do you see you for who you are or is your perception distorted like mine was. And if so, have you decided to morph yourself into the butterfly that you are meant to be? This is so much more than looks, this is about quality of life and either you control your body or your body will control your life. So what will it be?
