Dreaming Large---Thinking Small

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Today while shopping I had a moment when I was dreaming large. I was trying on some smaller sizes looking for a few pieces which fit. Overly optimistic, dreaming large, I pulled a size 14 capri off the rack, thinking small. What was I thinking? Tried it on anyways and of course it didn't fit. But then in that few split seconds I thought why not? For $6.50 it would be an investment in my future because in that moment I believed that by next summer I could be into those capris. But why? The realist in me battled with that large dream and doubted that it would be possible. The dream battled back and won. I know it's very possible to be into those capris next spring. So keeping the dream large and thinking small I went to the cash register with capris in hand confident that I will be wearing those capris. The challenge is on. Just for you to realize how big this dream is I haven't ever worn a size fourteen since junior high. Will keep you posted in the spring.

    So true. We don't see ourselves as the smaller self in the mirrors either. We continue to see ourselves with those extra pounds we shed.

    Sometimes the weight loss doesn't even feel "real" until you pull something out of your closet you couldn't fit in before and suddenly you can WEAR it! Keep taking small steps in the right direction and you'll make it!
