Mirror, mirror on the wall

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Lately I have been experiencing a situation that has often shaken my resolve in the past...going clothes shopping and looking at myself in the dressing room mirror! I have been noticing how my gut is slimmer and my butt more trim. My measurements show I have even lost size in my neck! I was just tracking that for the heck of it and it was the same for almost a year and all of the sudden it has was smaller...I remeasured three times to make sure I was being accurate! Getting back to the mirror experience, I tried on smaller pants, now in Petite size, and fit into a Medium top where before ExtraLarge had become the norm. It has been so rewarding that I have shopped for clothes twice this week already! So for me one of my split second defeaters has become a great motivator!

    That is so great! It's so much more fun shopping when there are more moderate sizes to choose from.

    (I'm not there yet, but I can still remember from when I was smaller)
