Today during lunch I decided to do some retail therapy. I have been feeling a bit down for the past few days and thought I would treat myself to shopping. I bought a few things and found a few that were on sale. I was feeling pretty good. Then, I walked out of the store and there were these tall, young, thin stylish women walking in. Geez what a way to make me feel like a frump! Even when I reach my target weight, I will still be short and curvy..and older than them.
Perhaps I am going through my midlife crises...perhaps I am just over whelmed by the stresses and frustrations of my life..who knows...but wow...did that take the wind out of my sails.
I spent much of the afternoon mulling this over. I have to accept myself for who I am. I need to get comfortable in my skin. I know this...I am working on it...and frankly somedays are better than others. Geez...I am 41 and entirely to old (in a "good no nonsense" way) to be feeling this.
This not a "poor me" blog. More of a "get over myself" blog. Anyways, I feel better just saying it.
