Examine your nakedness!!!

Sunday, July 22, 2012

Yesterday as I stood before the long mirror with my back towards it I peeled off my clothes I then held a hand mirror I had to see my back side I stood there & examined my backside, before I would quickly glance away as if I was turning the pages of a boring book,& skipping to the next page. I saw each fold & roll, I touched it & felt the doughy folds of fat. I slowly turned to the front I thought gee it looks better in the front, then I slowly turned to the side. I was a gasp . There it was my stomach protruded out like beach ball , my sides, had rolls of fat like a cascading waterfall, my breast hung like a Baltimore Oriole nest, My jaw line drooped like a turkey gobbler. I stood for a long time turning & touching examining getting the feel of what it felt like in flesh & in thoughts . You did this to yourself, now you will put yourself back together. I know I am older & we lose our elasticity in our body, but I know I can get rid of the excess fat. I want my back side to be curvy with the sides curved in giving me a waist,I want the beach ball stomach to deflate, I want the jaw & neck line to be pulled in with my chin protruding out just a tad. I want my breast to be like a Robins nest round not droopy. Every day before dressing I am going to examine my nakedness. I am not going to quickly glance away I am coming face to face with it. I really belief by seeing this it will slowly put the thougt in my mind every time the late night eating or over indulging

    Wow! I must thank you for this new habit. I've looked, but as you say, we glance and see what we want to see or what was once there. From here on out, I will take a good, long, look and take that as motivation. emoticon

    Well done for facing your nakedness head on, for a very long time I couldn't look at myself in the mirror and still hate doing it but if I don't I see a totally different body in my minds eye....I see this tall, slim, raven haired beauty instead of the short, slightly oval ordinary looking girl, which strives me to work hard to get where I want to be.

You truly are an inspiration.

    It takes a strong woman to face yourself in the mirror with nothing on but what you were born with. emoticon I'm glad you are able to take responsibility and do something able it. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hey, good for you to face your body. We all hate things about our bodies. There is so much angling skin on mine that I try not to look. Clothes are a good thing for me. I love 3/4 sleeves as I don't like my sagging arms hanging out.

    I did that and it totally motivated me to lose weight. I thought my body would not go back. It did. Not like I was 20, but I look like myself if that makes any since. Just make sure you strength train, that was my downfall. Got to keep the muscles toned as you lose. Good luck! emoticon

    Hem, glad I am not the only one doing this!
For me, it helped me being motivated enough to work harder doing abs, strength exercises involving back (roll by bra line) starting to go away but very slow
Anyway, we still look good (older gals can look better than younger gals out there)
We are as good as we feel; as sexy as we feel

Good luck in your journey!!!
