My confession for today is this: I preen while getting ready for work in the morning. I contort my body so it looks as thin and fit as it can and I smile pretty in the mirror at myself while getting ready and most days, despite my hair being IMPOSSIBLE to perfect, I feel like I look good. I like my face at least. And lately, when I have good posture, I would even say my upper body is looking better in general, especially my shoulders and neck/collarbone area. I have always liked to see some definition there, it makes me feel more feminine. So while I was preening this morning, I just got a really good feeling. I was wearing a shirt that clings, and I usually hate the result of that type of fabric, but today I was thinking, this shirt doesn't look half bad! That's a big victory in itself. My mood was pretty high after that. And, other than a couple days last week, my mood has been pretty good lately, I've been able to let things go a little easier. That's a blessing.
Yesterday at work, a business partner sent their annual Christmas gift:
We officially start moving today, my husband will be working hard while I'm at work, which was part of the plan all along, but in the process of picking up the keys for the new place, the manager told us there has been a change of plans, and instead of us having unlimited time to vacate the old place, they would like us out by the end of this weekend.
So, that's where I'm at on this Wednesday. My mood is really positive, I feel like I can get through anything, which is good because we might be getting some snow tonight. I like how things are shifting for me personally right now, I can't attribute it to weight loss because I don't think there has been a dramatic loss. I feel now, how I always imagined being skinny would magically make me feel someday. Content, peaceful, happy even. What more could anyone ask for?
Happy Wednesday! Hope it rocks!
