I wrote about this awhile back and found bit and pieces of the old post. Last night getting ready to go out I had similar feelings so I’m reposting.
Why is it one day I can catch a glimpse of myself and see all that I accomplished? 70lbs gone, the slender body I always dreamed of having since about age 12 and self-confidence and sense of determination that I can do anything I set my mind to. But other days I catch that same glimpse, it can be the next day or maybe even an hour after the first glimpse and I see a completely different body. Every flaw magnified, I see thickness, I feel vulnerable, and the thought crosses my mind that it was all in vain. I swear the glimpse I see is the same body I had for most of my life.
Am I crazy? Well, some would say I am for other reasons. ;~)
In all seriousness, my logical mind knows that the latter scenario is preposterous but when this happens it does mess with your attitude, motivation and confidence that day.
I can’t be the only one that feels this way, am I?
Note: I would give credit for the picture but I honestly don’t remember were I found it. Sorry.
