This is not a drill! But don't be alarmed, no one stole the other 2 chins (I used to have 3), but apparently over the last 17 months they have gone missing, and I have no intention of looking for them! Now before you see the picture, I will say I was the Queen of camera angles. I could make 2 chins look like 1, or 3 chins look like 2, all from the right angle. But this new picture is actually straight forward and genuine. On top of that I was looking in the mirror and I saw it first hand, 1 chin. I couldn't believe my eyes!
So I texted my coworker to let her in on the news! She was laughing at me and then she says "Um, you really should look in the mirror more often, it's been like that for a while now!"
I said I just noticed today, when I look in the mirror my eyes immediately go to the stomachs.
She knows how I joke and stuff, so she wasn't phased by this, she just said "Well every once in a while, look UP!" This was definitely a huge NSV, and I am feeling really good. Sometimes it is SO easy to look at how far we still have to go, or to look at the things we like least about ourselves, like my stomachs or the flying squirrels (my arms)... that we don't see how much other things are progressing... like having 1 chin and some pretty killer calves. :) I am going to make sure to continue to look at what I have achieved, and not just think about how far I still have to go... and I'm going to learn to appreciate all the little changes. I'm going to make more time to look around and smell the roses!
