Skewed Body Image?

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I have been wondering if I have a skewed body image. I know sometimes what I see when I look in the mirror is. lot worse then what it actually is. I've been wondering though if it can be the other way around. Can I imagine I look a lot better then what I actually do?

Tonight I went to the gym wearing an outfit I've worn numerous times before. Lately though I've been thinking that I can really notice the difference and am looking better. However, when I was at the gym I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and immediately thought I looked bigger. Im not sure if these are moments of clarity and thats how I normally look or if it is my own self doubts creeping in.

Do you think we become conditioned to how we normally are until we can no longer see the truth? Good grief.... I feel like I've answered my own question.
