Today wraps up my 29th week on Nutrisystem.
Some days, when I wake up and look in the mirror I still can't believe that the reflection looking back is really me.
Mirrors are funny, aren't they?
Our minds are even stranger.
when I was a teenager and weighed less than my daughters do today, I thought I was fat.
I weighed 110 and thought I was huge.
After I had my first few kids, I weighed a little less than what I weigh now and I thought I was fat then too.
Now that I lost some weight, my mind still thinks of myself as fat.
when I go clothes shopping I start walking towards the plus sizes
until I stop and think to myself "hey you aren't a plus size anymore"
I still reach for bigger clothes, because when I hold up something in my actual size I think to myself, surely that won't fit me. then I try on the bigger size and I'm shocked that it so huge.
why do we torture ourselves like this?
what in the world is this world coming to?
I read the other day that a size 8 was plus size.....an 8!!!
who decides these things?
Yes, being healthy and "skinny" is wonderful,
But having a healthier mind set is even better. Let's stop tormenting ourselves and give each other a break, shall we?
