As I bebop along this new lifestyle trail,I find many things that prove I am doing right. My energy level has increased, I am shrinking out of my clothes, and I no longer crave the bad for me foods (well mostly). even the scale has mostly been kind. I have one more opponent to conquer... the mirror.
Dressed, I feel so confident.. undressed however, I see the same fat girl I was at the beginning of my journey. As I open the shower curtain the mirror is always there waiting for me. I see every roll, every dimple of cellulite, the same double chin. All of it, it is still there.
I was chatting to my hubby about this desperate need to conquer the mirror and truly see myself for what I really am now vs. what I used to be. He used to be a bit heavier than he is now and dropped too much weight, almost down to an unhealthy number. He is now at a good and healthy weight, but he told me it took him ages to not see the same chubby man he was before though hew was extremely thin.
I have read blogs, stories, articles where there are several other folks who also experience the same feelings as me. I find comfort that I am not alone, but yet here I sit... I pray that I will overcome the mirror.
Cheers my fellow Sparkers. Thanks for always being there.
