Tonight my family was playing Wii together. One of the really fun games that you have to run and jump and stuff. We were laughing and have such a great time.

My husband took a few videos with his phone when I wasn't paying attention. No big deal, just trying to capture the moment for our family blog.

Well, I sat down and watched the video and was mortified.

I have been walking around feeling so good about myself and my weight loss. Then I saw me running in place and jumping and I didn't like it at all. Not one bit.

I almost cried, to be honest.

I looked NOTHING like I thought I looked. I set a critical eye on the me laughing with my kids in my jammies playing Wii. I just thought I would look BETTER after all my hard work and exercise. I thought I would look as good as I feel.

And I don't.

I still have weight to lose and workouts to do.

I am okay with that.

Maybe one day I will like what I see?

    Thanks miniminiv! It was angle and plaid pj pants that caused the horror. heh.

    Weird how something so trivial (mirror, 20 second video clip) can be so upsetting, eh?

    Working hard on not being so hard on me. You do the same.

    I can so relate to you on this. Maybe it was a bad angle? Maybe your husband could take a video of you when you're wearing something more flattering?
    There's a full-length mirror at our house that makes me look wider than other mirrors and it always leaves me feeling down. You reminded me that it's time to get rid of the mirror.
    Don't be too hard on yourself!
