Since I started down this weight loss journey last October I have struggled with my body image. I have been unable to see my true self in the mirror. My doctor said this would come in time and that time has finally arrived.
All the clothes that are now much too large were given to one of our clients. Yesterday she came into the office wearing one of my favorite outfits and I must say she looked very nice. The clothes fit her perfectly...just like they did me.
While she was on the other side of my office talking to my boss it suddenly dawned on me how I must have looked in those same clothes. Then I remembered how the last time I tried them on they just hung on me because they were about 4 sizes too large.
Seeing my clothes on someone else helped me to finally wrap my brain around how much my body has changed in the last 7 months. I realized that I no longer look like that and when I look in the mirror I see the new, much smaller me. I even feel smaller.
