Approximately 60 square feet of reflective glass, aka freaking MIRROR, has provided me with a rude awakening.
I love everything about our new 5th wheel. At one point, I even LIKED the mirrored closet doors. I didn’t look TOO bad standing in front of them..front ways or sideways.
Do you remember when I told you about the huge people at the Chinese restaurant and I referred to myself as hefty??
According to the vision in the freaking mirror, I was being kind to myself…at least in the standing position.
I’m not one to spend a lot of time looking at myself in the mirror. When I am in front of a mirror it is to floss, brush my teeth, comb my hair, put Lubriderm lotion on my face, check my eyebrows…things like that.
With ALL that reflective glass, aka freaking MIRROR, I still didn’t/don’t spend a lot of time looking at myself.
I set on the end of the bed to get dressed in the morning and the mirror is essentially at my left elbow. But I just don’t think about the MIRROR.
UNTIL A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO…
I was all dressed, had finished putting my shoes on and happened to glance to my left. I WAS SHOCKED AT WHAT I SAW!!! HOW did this happen?!!
I admit to being hefty and I admit to being overweight. But as I said, I didn’t think I looked TOO bad standing up in that freaking mirror. BUT SITTING DOWN WAS ANOTHER STORY!
When I sit, the junk in my trunk and the midriff bulge actually meet and hug each other like long lost friends. It is an unpleasant sight!! You can see this observable fact right through my clothing!
I’ve reconciled myself to standing the rest of my life! Or if I’m going to be sitting, I will wrap myself in a big old quilt so I will just plain look fat regardless.
No one will be the wiser….
