I agree, those department store mirrors are like fun mirrors! The ones in the dressing room always make you look better in their clothes, the ones out in the store make you look worse! hahaha!

My name is Sarah, I'm 24, and a stay at home mom to a one year old daughter. I went to the mall today to find a bathing suit. I walked past a long mirror in a department store and had to do a double take. Am I really this big? Have the scales been right all along? As I kept walking through the store, passing mirrors and women thinner than I, the clothes racks became a maze and I had to leave. The anxiety was overwhelming. I got in my car and cried my whole way home. So here I am. Hoping to fight for a better body.
