Well hello there, Sexy. Long time no see....

I was looking in the mirror yesterday and I saw something that caught me off guard.

I saw me.

The me I've missed so much. There she was smiling back at me. Bright blue-green eyes. Pretty little freckles. Nice full pink lips. Tiny turned up nose. Long dark hair draped over her shoulders and down her back. Soft pale skin. Defined jaw line. A slender, sexy neck connecting to slim shoulders and collar bones. There she was. She was there and she was gorgeous. Fuck, I've missed her.

Its been so long since I looked in the mirror and actually liked what I saw. Honestly, I cant even remember the last time.
But yesterday? I loved* what I saw. I saw me. Not the me that was there just a few short months ago. Not the me that looked like a bigger me ate me.

Just me.

The way I'm supposed to be. Well, almost. Just 21 more pounds to go (yes, I realize that number has changed. I changed my goal weight.)
Damn, it feels good to like the way I look again.



*This euphoric feeling is subject to change on a daily basis*

Hello you. (I won't let the husband read this post in case he gets he gets a response in his nether regions!)

Whenever you post pics of yourself I always think you look pretty good, glad you can see it again too.

I was looking at myself in the mirror once and making ugly faces and squishing fat (admit it, you do it too) and my hippy mother said "If you took all that energy that you expend on self-hate and just did something nice for yourself, you'd be amazed at the changes"

Sounds like you listened to my mom.

Sarah said...

Laura- Oh totally! I pinch all the spots I dont like, and then try to hide it. lol.
