Brought to tears in the dressing room at Steinmart

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

I am getting ready to go to a Girls Weekend, and, in preparation for the gathering, I put together a file of pictures from the last four years of our previous Girls Weekends. I guess I shouldn't be surprised to see that I was wearing the SAME clothes the last four years in most of the pictures! I've purchased a few things over the years, but, mostly, I shy away from buying new clothes because it has just been too painful. Staring into that dressing room mirror and being unhappy with the reflection because of my weight has brought me to tears on too many occasions. Today, however, was different! Since taking the SP site more seriously and actually doing what is suggested here, I have lost about ten pounds, and even though I was trying on the same size I've been wearing, the clothes fit better and I was happy with what I saw in the mirror! So happy, in fact, that it brought tears to my eyes! Thank you Spark People for such a great site, and thank you Spark Friends for your support and encouragement. I still have a ways to go, but today was affirmation that I'm headed in the right direction. If you can relate to this blog, hang in there! Spark People works!

    I'm still in the phase where it is painful to look in the mirror in dressing rooms. I've started losing weight and am hopeful after reading your blog! Thanks!

    Very Good Tears, Indeed!! Without Curves and SparkPeople, I would not ever have known what it was to have HAPPY TEARS when I stepped on the scales.
The Community at Curves/Spark is KEY to changing a lifetime of bad habits and failure.
