My new best friend...the mirror!

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Once again I found myself staring at my reflection in the mirror. I know I still have a long way to go but I canít help but be amazed by the change. I always thought I looked better than I did. While most people look at themselves and think they look bigger than they really do, in my mind I always looked smaller. It wasnít until I was looking at some pictures from my 21st birthday that I realized how bad it really was. Iím completely embarrassed and ashamed at what I looked like. It was like one giant blob of girl sitting on a barstool in front of complete strangers.

Seeing those pictures make me feel fantastic about how I look now. I know that Iím not a skinny size 2 or even normal size 10. But Iím no longer a round size 24. Iím living in the land of curvy size 16 and itís AMAZING!!! I have a waist that is smaller than my hips. When I turn to the side my boobs stick out farther than my tummy. The sleeves of my shirts are no longer tight and restrictive. I have the same problem as before where none of my clothes fit but now itís because they are too big instead of too small.

I may not have crossed the finished line yet but Iím decided that itís time to stop and enjoy the scenery! The much smaller scenery!

    "While most people look at themselves and think they look bigger than they really do, in my mind I always looked smaller." I thought the exact same thing when I was at my heaviest.
