Shopping= bad self image

Monday, June 20, 2011

How is it that i can loss 26 pounds, and still wear the same size jeans. The fact that I'm short doesnt make looking for jeans any easier, but i thought i would be able to fit into a smaller size. Am i kidding myself that I'm making a change? I feel like I'm spinning my wheels and going no where. The scale says that I'm losing weight, so it must be true?
One of the things i long to do, is go into a store and be able to fit into all the clothes i think are cute. I hate that half the things i try on make me look pregnant. and most of all i hate how clothes shopping makes me feel about myself. I always leave the store with little or no clothes at all, thinking to myself " your so fat, why arent u small enough to fit into those clothes?" Exercise, and eating right makes me feel great, but i look in the mirror and i feel horrible. Some times i feel like not eating anymore, or exercise a second time. At the end of my failed shopping day, i had to cover up my mirrors, i just cant look at myself.

    I absolutely hear you on this! Wow!
    Shopping is completely depressing
    The worst thing about my situation is that I work in a huge retail store
    its horrible-LOL
    I cant wait to be able to walk past a window,a mirror
    ANY reflective suface and instead of immediately get gloomy
    I will smile
    its gonna happen
    every time you walk past a mirror say goodbye until you want to say "Hello!! Good looking"

    I absolutely understand how you feel. Just know that you are much harder on yourself that anyone else would be. You're making positive changes! Keep going!!

    I am with you on this one! I feel the same way after shopping trips. You'll make it through though. Just think how good it will feel when you finally DO drop a jean size!
