Awareness helping mood management and I AM the same size Medium as other people
Sunday, June 23, 2013
1. Awareness has helped me react better when I feel stressed. Still going to the doc to make sure hormones are in check or figure out if anything else is going on.
2. We just returned from a grueling day of helping family move from one house to another. Silly me wore a white jacket (what can I say it was way to early when I got dressed this AM). I was very fearful the dark sweatshirt my sister-in-law loaned me wouldn't fit. After all, she is so much smaller than I can ever hope to be - she's not tiny but she is fit and thin and has a much smaller bone structure. I reluctantly pulled it on when I had a moment alone so I could pull it off and claim I was too warm to wear it anyway when I found it to be too tight. But it fit. A comfortable and perfect fit at that.
While with hubby on a trip between houses later, I told him that I didn't think I was similar sized as his sister and I feel much bigger. He said I'm not at all bigger and laughed. I said that I thought mediums I wore were different from other people's mediums. I know there are some differences, but in general that it nuts.
I've read it here. I know it's not unusual, but it IS hard it is to comprehend my new size after being bulging out of size 20W or XXL just over two years ago. It's really-really nice to get to celebrate this feeling now that victories like this less frequent than earlier in this process.
