Who the heck is that?!!?

oh...wait...that's me?!? No flippin way! Once upon a time, a little girl went hiking with her family and new puppy and discovered she was FAT!
I'm all of 4 feet 11 inches tall but no one ever seems to notice, any time I mention my height I get "No way! I thought you were taller" I have what has lovingly been called a big personality. Or to use a particularly annoying descriptor; I'm scrappy. I don't back down from much of anything, or anyone once I've set my mind on a course of action. In fact, I don't think of myself as short (except for attempting to buy an adults bicycle and being forced to buy a girls UGH) Prior to my hiking adventure which I'll get back to momentarily, I'd look in the mirror and think cute girl going about her day or dang I look GOOD tonight. I.JUST.DIDN'T.SEE.IT.
Perhaps I have a healthier self-esteem that I should...Nah! Def not that - LOL
So away I went on my little hike, feeling really good in my jeans and boots and fitted T; feeling all Lands End and J Crew. I hop up on the tree that'd fallen and my pup Leo, hops up too and stands between my legs ( he was MUCH smaller). My partner in crime whips out his camera and click click clicks away - I'm thinking "wow, what a great dog and what an awesome picture that's gonna be" He's telling me "wow what a cute picture!"
I swear he could only have been talking about the dog.
Tweak your head to the side - sorry
That picture is what got me actively moving everyday. I want to look like I feel and I'd just really like to be able to trust the dang mirror! I'd have to say my greatest motivation is NOT wanting to see another surprise picture like that!
