Reaction to Trying to be More Confident

Friday, May 24, 2013

First of all - Oh my goodness, I can't believe I had a featured blog! Thank you all! That was just amazing! :)

So I wore the blouse yesterday. I got a compliment from hubby, and when we were eating out with a couple of friends, I went into the washroom, and when I was washing my hands I looked up and went, holy moley, I have a WAIST!

Let me explain. The mirror at my apartment shows me from about shoulders, up. I'm just this short. (I'm 4 foot 11) The mirror at the restaurant showed me from my knees up. Secondly, I have always carried my weight first and foremost around my belly, causing people to think I was pregnant LONG before I was (Which I HATE!) So for me to actually SEE my waistline was a bit of a shock.

Most of the clothes I normally wear wouldn't have shown that as clearly. So by taking a chance, being a little more confident, I discovered a WONDERFUL NSV - I have a waist! And I got a compliment from hubby! emoticon

This one act actually made a pretty big difference :) Try something today!
