THE UGLY MIRROR

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

How dare the mirror show that reflection?? Where am I? What happened?? Seems this blob of fat has swallowed me whole and I am no where to be found. That's why I dont have mirrors in my house, except for the small in the bathroom. But after a shower its foggy, so I cant see. So it doesnt really count as a mirror.

Yet today, I saw something I havent seen in a while... a small glimpse of me?? I put on a blouse for work that I havent worn in a while. This afternoon I walked into the Ladies Restroom and got a shock! This "small" blouse of mine looked "big!" It really did :) And I couldn't believe that blouse was so long on me. I remember tugging and pulling it down and still It didn't hide anything, belly still hung out for all the world to see.

Now.... that mirror is not looking so bad. Things are changing. I just need to remember, that I am underneath all of this fat and when I remove it all...I will be free and the mirror will not be ugly to me anymore :)

I just need to keep on keeping on.......

    Amazing how we percieve ourselves, mirrors are always so harsh when we are big. I remember trying to never look below the face. Then I realized yes I still have alot of skin but it skin that in the end will hopefully be gone some way some how. Congrats on seeing all your hard work has paid off

    Congrats on the progress! I was just thinking this morning that the mirror still isn't overly friendly to me, but it's not so much of an enemy anymore.

    What a lovely way to look at things - I'm sure ugly is not a word you could ever use to describe your reflection - even in a foggy mirror - but now that the mirror has cleared
    keep that beautiful person there! Best wishes
