I thought mirrors were the enemy. Showing me everything I hated about my body. So, I avoided them. Whenever I looked in the mirror I only looked at my face. I never let my eyes wander down below my neck. I never looked at my naked body and hardly ever looked at it when I was fully clothed.

Since beginning this journey to lose weight and become a healthier me, I don't mind looking at myself in mirrors anymore. I actually like it. I love to see the progress I am making staring back at me in the mirror. My thinner face, smaller waistline and stomach, the tiny muscles starting to form in my arms and legs. WOW what a difference 30lbs can make. I can't wait to see what I will look like when I reach my goal.

I think I don't mind anymore, because I am doing something to change. I am working my ass off to become healthier and happier. Avoiding those mirrors, made it easy for me to ignore the fact that I needed to make a change. So, mirrors, bring it on! I will face you head on without hesitation and be proud of what I see.

    emoticon I never minded looking in the mirror when I was getting ready in the morning but HATE when I catch my reflection in a mirror unexpectedly and I think, Yikes! Am I really that big? It feels better knowing that I am doing something about that.

Enjoy looking in that mirror and reflecting on how far you've come!
