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 can’t 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 wasn’t until I was looking at some pictures from my 21st birthday that I realized how bad it really was. I’m 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 I’m not a skinny size 2 or even normal size 10. But I’m no longer a round size 24. I’m living in the land of curvy size 16 and it’s 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 it’s because they are too big instead of too small.
I may not have crossed the finished line yet but I’m decided that it’s time to stop and enjoy the scenery! The much smaller scenery!
