Have a couple of pics... I know I promised at least one pic of me in my old 14s (you've seen previous attempts to get them on here in my blog before). Though while trying to get some pics of them, I noticed something I hadn't seen before -- something I've been worried about...
Noticing what I did made me remember Ellen's "Hate Loss" challenge so I said some good and true things about myself to my reflection... rather than careening into a downward spiral of despair and negative self-talk.
I asked Hubs to bring the scale from our place -- I hope he remembers!
Now, onto the pics...
The first two are of the jeans... and yes, I look tired - I only had 3 hrs of sleep last night.
The last one is of the thing I feared -- loose skin. 1G1D1Y has a fear of this too... calls loose skin in that area "bat wings".
I hadn't noticed this on me before but here's what I said to myself, to my reflection.
- I would rather have loose skin and be at a healthier weight than I was in July.
- I am strong and brave for acknowledging my loose skin and revealing it on my blog.
- I am beautiful because I am more accepting of my authentic self which makes me love myself more.
- I have always been the person who loves and accepts others "flaws and all" and my emotional growth now has me realizing that I must treat and love myself with the same acceptance and respect that I grant others.
