lemizz's Journal, 01 May 2013

Had some victories during the week my computer was at the shop. I had a pair of shorts that I didn't expect to fit until the end of summer that are now comfortably roomy. Tons of tops that still had tags from when I was in denial about my size now fit. Best of all my favorite bathing suit is wearable again!! I no longer see myself as chunky. It's strange but I'm still affected by how I felt at a heavier weight. I actually caught myself turning down an invitation to a party like I used to because I didn't want those people to see how heavy I had gotten. I have to remember that I shouldn't feel that way anymore. I had kept telling myself that it was okay to be overweight. That it was okay to cover up with hoodies and fade into the background. I would tell myself that I was just introverted and preferred to be alone...but I was lying to myself and the people around me.

Even though I fit a size 1 there are many days I still feel like a size 9. Also I notice when I feel heavier I wear brighter make-up that stands out. I think it is because I am trying to get people to look at my face not my waist.

Before I had my babies I felt the same as you. I was a size 0 at one point and thought I was so disgusting. Now I look back at pictures...even at a size 3...I can't comprehend why I felt that way! There is something to say here about age/experience/hindsight changing your wisdom. I'm so thrilled to be the size 7 I am right now. I can think of a time when that would have disgusted me. I think no matter what, women in our position will always struggle with body image. The only thing to combat it is to stay positive and keep making healthy decisions.
