New Jeans - A Reflection of My Real Self
Monday, January 27, 2014
So I ventured to the mall actually to pick up my free piece of chocolate from Godiva for the month of January. But as I was strolling through, I went into New York and Company. This used to be my go to store until I got pregnant with baby#1 and then working from home I really didn't need nice clothes (sad I know). Well after 2 babies and finally getting to goal I still hadn't been back.
Well I went yesterday and there as always as a mega sale. So I went through and picked up a few shirts and for fun decided to try on jeans. I was interested to see what size I wore in that store. As you women know depending on the store and designer determines what size you where. (I still don't understand why it can't be standardized but that's a different blog for a different day.)
I was amazed by how I looked. I swear that we need to be nicer to the person looking back at us in the mirror. Yes I still have problem areas and flaws that I see when I stand naked but the average person sees me like this
If the head was cutoff and I just looked at these photos from the neck down, I would be envious of that person. So this tells me that I HAVE and NEED to be kinder to myself. To celebrate what I have achieved and take my mind off the scale and on to just being healthy and active and enjoying life with my family.
