Over Sensitivity- "Do I Look Like THAT??!!"


Thursday, January 31, 2013

It was a beautiful day today and I MAY have been over sensitive to all the sights as I drove around... I was doing a lot of people watching...

And some of the people I saw provoked a "do I look like THAT??!!" response in me, in a kind of negative way...

Do you do that?

And do you wonder, like I do, if maybe I don't REALLY look like what I THINK that I do? Like I always considered myself a little chubby, or large framed... when ACTUALLY I was more than 50 pounds overweight, obese by any stretch of the imagination, even though I THOUGHT I was just PLUMP!

Oh well, it's behind me now, and any photos of me from that period in my life will remind me that I'm still the same person, only I can wear cuter clothes a lot more successfully now...

And I can be a lot more active now...

And I don't have to be a victim of what others think of me, or even of what bad vibes I get from myself!

I can CHOOSE to make wise choices.
I can CHOOSE to think positively.
I can CHOOSE to start each day with a new slate.

    I really like your last three positive statements:

I can CHOOSE to make wise choices.
I can CHOOSE to think positively.
I can CHOOSE to start each day with a new slate.

my bad, is that I see so many women in my age group, and older, dressing like 12 year olds, and it just ages them and makes them look sad...I am constantly telling my hubby, do NOT let me go out in public looking like that

I look at pictures of myself and like you, didn't think I look like the person I saw in the picture. I like the new me better! And I can see you do so as well. Keep it going!! You will make your long term goals!
