HCB's Journal, 08 October 2012

Cue up the Twilight Zone theme..dat di da dah, dat di da dah...

So, both yesterday and today, I am walking along shopping and catch a glimpse of my reflection in the glass doors outside the store and think, "Who is that woman?"

OMG - It's me! Really? I have to do a doubletake to be sure it is not the woman in front of me or behind me also walking into the store...but wait, she has the same clothes on as me...OMG - It's me!

I know I have lost weight; and I have all smaller new clothes to prove it, but at times I think "Who is that woman?"

Still grateful for:

- The people I love who love me back!
- The good health of my loved ones
- My FS Buddies who support and encourage me to continue
- "Butt-kicking" myself to a smaller size today
- My DH - who is my greatest "cheerleader"
- My Bengal cat companions named Bodhi and Ravi
- My work - which has meaning and worth to other human beings
- My connection to the Mother Earth and its entire splendor
- My physical health

Wow, you sound like me! I mean really, I could have written that! It happens to me all the time...even folding laundry, it happens. My butt fits into THESE jeans? Really? Oh yeah, I just wore them Friday night!

How cool is that? But it's a proven fact that our minds take a while to process our new image and, unless we make a concerted effort to actually look at ourselves frequently to get that message through, we can walk around with a very distorted vision inside our heads from what we really look like. Get used to being smaller... you're only going to get smaller and smaller still :)

It's a great feeling when you figure out it's really you. The new you... Reminded me of something hubby said when I showed him some shorts I bought this weekend. He asked what little girl was going to wear them. I told him they were for me and that I could zip them up but still too snug. I didn't think he believed me so I showed him. :)

I think that is the neatest thing I have read today. Just so proud of your ongoing weigh loss, HCB. :)

That woman in the glass isn't the old you, saddled with a 50lb + pack. Can you imagine taking that with you everywhere now? I carried two gallons of milk into the house a couple of days ago and was stunnedby how much that hinders you.

Awesome! Get used to the new you! You've worked hard and you are seeing the results that's the best reward ever!

I know how you feel HCB! I am sure you look nothing like you did even 6 months ago. It's a strange feeling - nice but a little odd to get used to!

I do the same thing when I see my butt. Seriously? That's my butt? That can't be my butt. My butt has a butt shelf! But nope.. that's my butt.
