New unexpected problem with losing weight :)

Monday, December 03, 2012

When I started my journey I would wear jeans, whatever shirt I grabbed and my sneakers. After taking a quick look in the mirror off I would go. Now that I've lost weight I have a new unexpected problem... I look in the mirror and rethink what I'm wearing. Not that it's a bad thing but I just can't throw on whatever and go. I've gotten to the point where I care about looking good in what I'm wearing. Case in point - last week I was going to meet up with a couple I know for a soda. I put on my size 14 jeans (bigger ones are living in a pile on the floor waiting to be donated), grabbed one of my 3/4 sleeve tees and put on my new boots (more on those in another blog). I went to do my quick check in the mirror and when I looked I heard a voice say "oh no, that tee just doesn't do it". I had to go change and put on one of my new sweaters. After another look in the mirror the voice said "that looks much better". Off I went to meet my friends. It only took me about 10 minutes to get to where we were meeting but the whole drive I kept hearing "this looks so much better and I feel so much better".

Ok, I knew I would go through changes both physical and mental but I expected the physical changes to be bigger than the mental ones. I still have the 3/4 sleeve tees but feel they may be spending more time on hangers than on me.

    Interesting...I'm finding the same thing. I never used to care what I had on...baggy jeans and t-shirts unless I am at work or church. This mental stuff is applying to me too.

    Thank you so much for sharing. I sometimes feel this as well, but where else but on a blog can you actually SAY it? I also think that the feeling that you are worth a couple extra minutes while dressing carries over into feeling that you are worth a couple extra minutes at the gym or being picky about your veggies, etc. It is "me time", but I consider it one of my rewards. Thanks again. emoticon
