Every once in a while, I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and think in horror, “who is that?!”
Has that ever happened to you? It happened to me today and it didn’t feel very good.
I get dolled up, do my hair, my make up, spritz myself with my favorite perfume, slip on a cute sun dress – I practically live in them – and heels and think I look pretty damn good…until I walk past a window, mirror or other reflective surface and realize that I don’t quite look as fabulous as I feel on the inside.
I wish I could say that I am carrying around a little extra baby weight.
But my “baby” is almost fourteen years old.
The sad reality is that I weigh two pounds more now than I did on the day I gave birth almost fourteen years ago.
I have a bit of a belly. I have a little jiggle when I walk.
And my behind?
Oh boy…don’t even get me started on my caboose.
I see “Mommy Makeovers” on the news all the time because plastic surgery FL is really common. We have a ton of wonderful plastic surgeons that specialize in everything from breast lifts to hiney tucks!
Sometimes I secretly wish I could justify one for myself. But honestly, I am this way not because I gave birth, but because I eat too much and exercise too little.
I need to get back on track with my fitness and weight loss. I need to stop snacking late at night when I can’t sleep…and that sweetened condensed milk I pour in my coffee every morning?
Asta La Vista, baby. I’m about to start drinking a lot more water…
