The Fruits of Labor

It is so nice when people notice that you look different (i.e. better).

For the most part I don't see the changes.  I guess that's part of my own special version of body dysmorphic disorder.  When I look in the mirror I always see:
Dita Von Teese

Kate Winslet, Vanity Fair
or



I don't see the fat person. I can already see what's underneath.  It's just kinda nice that she's making an appearance for other people as well.

I am happy for you. I envy that you feel that way. Must be a relief. I look in a mirror and I see layers of fat, stretch marks, muffin tops, cellulite, and any other imperfection I can muster. Within the last year I have lost over 60lbs went from a size 20 to a 12 and nothing has changed in the way I see and feel about myself. I have a bit more confidence but its usually shattered by the time I leave my house for work. Thank you for the post. It is nice to know that there are ppl who were once in my shoes and they can actually now feel better about themselves.

You too can feel this way...
It's all bravado. I let my inner Jessica Rabit take the stage when my inner Robby is failing me.

You should change the way you see yourself, because you're not that person any more. She's still part of your journey.

What shatters your confidence? You or the world?
