another epiphany

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

need to do a quick blog before i go to work

over the weekend i was shopping and found a really cute pair of shorts. i wear a 12 or 14 in shorts. however, in shirts, i have faced the fact that i need to go to plus size due to the fact that i am wide.( my dad, God rest is soul, would call me wide clyde).

so as i was looking for a pretty purple top, i couldnt find one. so i started going to other stores. my husband was looking in sears at the tools ( dont all men).

i went in several stores. as i was walking around looking, i noticed myself quickly scanning the area around me like i was worried about something. what could i be worried about.? why was i making sure no one was around? then, it dawned on me. i was worried that my husband was gonna see me looking in plus size clothes. ( he is not aware that i started getting my shirts there).

well, this is stupid , i thought as i was doing this.

this was another epiphany for me.

if i am ashamed of the dept and stores i am going in, that should give me more motivation to do better at my eating and excercising and motivation.

so, i am using this story to help me through the week. i want to get below 190 by sat night. and i want to stay there and not keep bouncing up and down.

unitl tmr, keep sparking

    The department you shop in is not as apparent as the body you put your clothing on! So you need to be honest and ask yourself the real question! Are you happy with the idea that you think you need to hide something or do you really need to come to grips with reality! Many time we convince ourselves that if we don't look directly at the truth, it really isn't there! But we know that isn't true! So ask the next question! Who are you fooling! Ones you answer that! You will know what you need to do! Stand in the 360 degree mirror and say to yourself; I am happy with that or I am going to change that! Then after you have made that decision, stick to it and don't let anyone tell you different!

    Don't worry about your hubby knowing what dept you are shopping in. most of us are looking at the 3XL shirts ourselves. you might be surprised how much it would NOT bother him.

    The truth is, most guys don't know or care what women's clothing sizes mean. Whether you're in plus sizes or standard sizes or missy sizes or tent and awning sizes, your husband won't know. He'll see *you*, not what department you shopped in.

    Now, if you want to use the plus size thing as motivation, and it works for you, that's good. Just remember it's a girl thing. Your husband won't know or care, unless you take the time to force him to learn about it.

    Wow, what a way to use your epiphany. But you shouldn't be ashamed of looking for clothes that fit well. The better you feel about yourself the better care you will take!

    Keep it up! We're all here with you! You can do it!

    what a great lesson you've learned from a simple (or not so simple) shopping trip. good for you for stopping to recognize where your feelings were coming from. good lesson for all of us, really.
