I've discovered today that I have become comfortable in my skin.
Not to say that I don't wish it were different, you understand.
But, if this is what I'm going to look like at this moment in my life,
I can live with it.
(Not only because I don't like the other option, either!)
I have a sedentary job. For the most part, I have sedentary hobbies. I chauffeur my kids around and sit and watch them play sports.
But I also play soccer twice a week and play raquetball as often as I can. I like to go to the gym and jog/walk on the treadmills.
My heart should be in okay shape. It's my ass that suffers. And I'm okay with that now.
Instead of wearing baggy clothes and hiding in them, I'm buying the right clothes that I can be myself in and getting them altered to fit. (I'm a pear, and they just don't understand that your average plus size woman can still have a waistline!) Unfortunately that adds $15 to EACH pair of pants that I buy.
But I'm totally worth it.
I might even buy myself some nice shoes so I don't have to wear my runners all the time.
Because I am totally worth it!
You all may think that I'm silly. But trust me. This was a long time coming!
