Have you ever seen that picture of the little cub looking into the mirror and seeing the confident lion? Thats how I feel. When I look into the mirror, I like what I see, which is a good and bad thing. Its good that I have confidence, but its bad in the fact that I have a hard time seeing what is staring back at me. When I was younger, kids would make fun of me because I was overweight and wore glasses, but when I looked in the mirror, I didn't see what everyone else saw, I thought I looked pretty. Fortunately a light bulb went off that I needed to lose weight, so right before I entered high school, I lost a whole bunch of weight, but as I've gotten older, I packed it back on, plus more. Now that I am an adult, the same thing is happening again. I was looking through some recent photos that a family member took, and I came to one of this very overweight girl and I said to my mom, who is that?? and she looked at me kinda funny and was like, "hunny, thats you"! I couldn't believe it!! As I sat and thought about it, it all started to make sense. Sometimes at fast food restaurants, people would stare, and I never knew why, I just always thought they wished that they would have gotten what I had, either that or I had food in my teeth. I also started to notice that my pants didn't fit so well, but always thought I was just bloated, and in 2008, my husband and I lost twins. The doctors said that I didn't do anything wrong, but it would be beneficial if I lost 20lbs before I decided to get pregnant again. So today, 5/5/12, I decided to get on the scale and see how much weight I've actually gained, and the number staring back at me shocked me, 195!! I was once 149!! Thankfully, I found Spark People, and am finally realizing the denial that I have been in for so long!!
