A New Goal for Me
Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Today, someone posted on a message board that they had bought a couple of pairs of Capris, but she wasn't sure if she should wear them to work - she was afraid people would laugh. I replied, "Congrats to you, you're doing great! And you should wear those capris, you more than earned them. I think maybe your uncertainty is what a lot of us face in being actually afraid of succeeding. It's getting hot here in Oregon, and yesterday I went to Walmart to find some hot-weather clothes. I actually got into size 16! I couldn't believe it-and also couldn't believe how happy I was to be in a 16. I've been in 2X and 3X for so long, now I feel like I'm in a "real" size. Of course, they have elastic waistbands. I wonder if I'll be able to someday wear pants without elastic waistbands? That's a goal I have; can I do it? Well, Sparkpeople has taught me that nothing is impossible-even liking yourself again!
