Did you know that mirrors are big, damn liars?
They lie to me.
Mirrors show me a body shape and figure that I do not see when I take photos.
While we are on the topic of liars, did you know that my brain also lies to me all the damn time on what my body shape really looks like?
Speaking of dams, here's a dam picture of yours truly at 166 lbs:
This is how I picture myself and my body image currently in my head.
About 166 lbs-ish.
Size 12 shorts.
This is also how I see my shape when I look in the mirror.
Kinda a no-waist kinda figure.
That shape is awesome.
I remember that blue shirt. It was a size Large.
I was no longer shopping in the plus size section of the store! Sweet.
I am waiting on my brain to catch up to what I look like now. Size 6. 140-ish lbs.
And what about those mirrors too?
They need to catch up to what I look like now.
But let me tell ya....
How do I know what my shape really looks like now?
Photos tell a completely different story.
Here is a photo from this past weekend in San Francisco.
|Girls Night Out!|
What have I learned?
I learned to take buckets of photos as I was losing weight.
And I take lots of photos at my "now" weight.
This has helped me to realize what my figure currently looks like.
It helps me to not believe what I see when I look in the mirror.
Did you hear me?
