Get over it!

Pretty much everyone has some sort of body issues. I don't know anyone that is happy with every part of themselves. But me, I am paranoid all the time that some part of my body is looking unflattering. It's sad but true. For example, I rarely wear shorts. I own one pair...and I live in California! This past weekend I went shopping and found this cute tennis/running skirt. I've been eye balling running skirts for a while now. This one happened to be on clearance for $4. I couldn't pass that price up. I bought it without trying it on...
Holy cow, it's short. Duh! It's not any shorter than a pair of shorts, but for some reason the fact that it's a skirt makes it feel uncomfortably short. Add to that, I am still "the old body" when I look in the mirror. There's a disconnect going on in my brain. I KNOW that I've lost weight, I am just having a hard time seeing it.
Anyhow, I almost took it back. Then I thought, "Push the comfort zone a little Tiff". It's not indecent. Hubby likes it :) My legs aren't rockin', but they're starting to look pretty good. I put it on the other night and went for my evening walk. The whole time I was tugging the hem down, but I wore it. I don't think it will be one of my favorite things workout in, but I am going to wear it!

I feel the same way. It's good to hear someone else vocalize what goes on in my head. LOL. You're doing great Tiff, keep it up girl!

Oh I totally get the whole old body thing!! I still reach for sizes that are now way to big and I am starting to realize that I what I see in the mirror is different then what others see.
I started taking photos (vain I know) because I feel like it gives me a better idea of how I look.
