Shostakovich, Strauss and a Shock!

Friday, November 02, 2012

So, I went to see the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra play tonight. emoticon

I had to spend a while picking an outfit, because very little fits right now. A few things from my sis are close, but need a few more pounds down before I can really wear them. So, I pull out my one pair of dressy black pants, close-fitting, thigh-hugging, flared-out from the knee. Since they no longer make me look like a sausage, I'm wearing them while I can. (Hope to find something similar to replace them with when they outgrow me, they're gorgeous.) I also chose a lacy off-white top with 3/4 sleeves, that is also gorgeous, and also finally fits! emoticon

So, I pick up my friend's daughter and we head into the city to go to the symphony. Before it starts, as everyone is milling around in the lobby, I cross the space to throw away an empty water bottle. Just before turning back, I catch a reflection in the glass wall of someone dressed exactly like me, except she's shapely and lookin' hot. For a split second, I wondered who she was. ...


Did you make the connection yet? I did...a split second later. Oh my goodness, I didn't even recognize myself in a reflection! I couldn't stop looking for a minute...could hardly believe my eyes.

Even if I weren't to go any further on this weight-loss journey, my self-image is so totally different now. I both feel and look more confident. emoticon

For now, though, I'm still just stunned. emoticon
