funny how things change when we are not looking

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I have not purchased shorts in over ten years. I have been ashamed of the way I look for more than that long. If I wore any kind of shorts it was not in public at all. I have a issue with the way that my legs look for longer than I can recall not to mention I was cutter at a young age and did not want anyone to see my cuts.
I found that I have lost more weight than I thought because I was able to buy a size smaller than I thought that I would be able to wear today in hopes that I would be able to fit into them by the end of summer. I didn't even try them on in the store because I was more than sure that they were not going to fit by any means. I get home today and decide to try them on to see how much work I have to do and I was able to get them on without even trying and they look great.
I am currently in FL. and I am right off the ocean on vacation with my boyfriend and his family with my son. I am so shocked at how much I don't care about how others think of how I look now. I am still a work in progress and far from my goal to say the least but I am making changes and falling in love with the new me. I am so glad that this is the start of my future. The past is the past and I can't change that but I am making a better future for myself with every work out that I do today.

    Good for you! Sometimes it's hard to let go of that "old image" of ourselves we have in our minds - the one that doesn't represent the person we're becoming. Congratulations on fitting into those shorts, but even more for moving beyond what others think about how you look and becoming comfortable with YOU.
