Time for a new perspective
Sunday, May 01, 2011
The other day I grabbed my skinny jeans from the closet. Usually I avoid them as they always feel snug and I feel fat in them. Looking at the butt area, I thought there is no way that I am going to fit into these today. Happily I realized they did fit and were a little loose. Putting on my new jacket before leaving for work, I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. For once, I saw what others have been seeing - a newer and skinnier me.
Until then, I still saw the heavier me in the mirror. Don't get me wrong, I did see some of the progress. Yet it felt like I was on treadmill and not getting anywhere.
True - I have been feeling healthier. True I seem to stand a little taller. True I continue to keep making smart choices when eating. So now is the time to start writing new goals which is a little scary but exciting all at the same time.
