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.

    next time do just that, take the picture from the neck down and when you are having a bad day, or that little voice that decides to attach for no reason. Look at this amazing person, and realize she is you.

    You look great Leah! I like your idea of "cutting off your head" and you'd like what you see. So that definitely tells you you're at a happy place wit your body. Good job getting where you wanted to be.
