Week 18 - Perception

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

I said this time around that I was going to appreciate how far I have come and I definitely do. However, the one problem that I am still experiencing is the mirror in my head. My husband says I'm too skinny and other people comment on how small I am. Well I still don't see what they see. I should qualify that by saying I don't see what they see all the times. There are moments when I actually put on clothes that actually fit me and I then I say that I look small (not skinny). I guess what it is that most of the time I'm still wearing that t-shirt that is now oversize or those pants that are now baggy. I need to get clothes that show off all of my hard work and maybe then can I replace the old imagine of me with a new one.

    You look fantastic! I think sometimes it takes awhile for our minds to catch up with the new look. I remember doing Jillian DVDs when I was pregnant and still thinking I looked like the girls in the video. Clearly, I didn't, but it took some time to get used to the new shape. That's kind of the opposite of what you're saying, but I get it. New clothes sounds like a great idea to help you see what the rest of us are seeing!

    Be your own best friend and stop being negative or hard on youself....that's what I tell myself. We don't see what other people see, we see worse and nit pick top much. I was going to post you that same video, I saw it on Fb last week, it's eye opening. You really do look great Leah, and you're such an inspiration!

    Be careful.... I say this because I am going though body dismorphia. Appreciate what you have, you look great! It is very hard to get past our internal perceptions of what we REALLY look like. I have had to take a rather big step away from things as I am too obsessive and tend to suffer from it internally. Here is an excellent video if you're interested...>
    It is way to easy to find our flaws than it is to appreciate our good assets. You have come to far to not truly appreciate it. Feel good about yourself!
