Mirror Mirror on the wall, tonight I have an ego that is NOT so SMALL! So today I caught a glimpse of me in the full length mirror as I was leaving the gym. I couldn’t really believe my eyes. At Target this week, which isn’t known for having the most standard sizes I bought a few new pocket t-shirts. They don’t usually make them for women, especially not in a length that works for me so they are mens but whatever. The shirt I am wearing in that photo… the one I went back and bought in 8 (eight!!!) colors ladies and gents is an XL!!! I have never in my adult or adolescent life been a size XL. EVER!
The pants in that picture… which you can’t see real well, are Lane Bryant size 16! I am nearing the end of my long-term relationship with LB. Not quite ready to break it off yet, but the time is nearing. My curves, which are many make it hard to find a good fit.
I still feel I lack a certain measure of style but hey, it works for me. I am planning a trip up to the Albertville outlets with a friend to scope out some new clothes and maybe fond a new bra or two. I am hoping to do this sooner rather than later. It would be nice to have some outside input on my clothes.
I love that I had a good body image today. I avoided mirrors and negative thoughts tonight and asked Robb to take a photo of me, and have sailed on this high tonight. It is really nice to have days like these.
