Today I had a big no scale victory! Last summer after I had my daughter I was pretty distraught I was wearing M shirts and size 5 pants. That may not seem like a big deal to some but keep in mind I’m very short and petite built so those are not the sizes I’m used to. Even through the winter I stayed in those sizes. I couldn’t stand to see myself in the mirror. I was very unhappy and just wanted to be comfortable with the way I looked. So I took control over my life and stopped thinking negative about myself. There’s a saying that goes “You have to fake it to make it” so every morning I woke up telling myself I was stronger and better then I was the day before. Each day I saw small positive changes in myself not only physically but mentally.
Now in the best way possible none of my clothes fit! They are all way to baggy on me. So since there were some awesome sales going on today I took myself on a little a shopping trip. I was so proud that I was able to buy XS shirts and size 0 short. That is what I wore in high school 5 years ago! I guess you really do have to fake it to make it because all my hard work is paying off. I even went out on a limb and bought a crop top. I’m not sure if I’ll ever wear it but at least I have the option to.
