Starting to Like What I See in the Mirror

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

As I was getting dressed this morning, I looked in the mirror and actually smiled. That hasn't happened in a very long time!

I've been watching the number on the scale go down, I've been getting happily annoyed that my clothes don't fit anymore emoticon (annoying because I simply don't want to have to spend a bunch of money on clothes only to turn around in a couple months and do it all over again!)

The one friend who talk to about this healthy thing assures me that you can see a difference just by looking at me.

I didn't believe it until today!

HAPPY DAY!!!!!!!

I'm a big believer in being yourself and loving yourself for who you are. And I think I'm a pretty fantastic person. I'm kind, I'm loyal, I'm a hard worker. I can be incredibly silly.

So when I decided back in January to jump on this healthy bandwagon, it felt weird. Because I've never felt like I needed to change who I am. It took a while to convince myself that I wasn't doing that. Deciding that I wanted to like what I see when I look in the mirror was a harder struggle than it should have been.

But doing it for me, and only for me, is what made it a possibility.

And I'm {HAPPY}

    emoticon emoticon I am not there yet! But the other day, my Aunt asked me if I was wearing new jeans and said they looked good on me, so not to wear them to work or they will be ruined... she saw me in those same jeans a week earlier, I had to lay down to button them then, and she didn't say anything about wearing them to work lol. That was the best, and only, compliment so far! emoticon
