Today I had Marc take a pic of me before I left for work. The purpose of the pic was to show myself wearing the sweater that she got me for Xmas.
Marc sent me an e-mail of the pic and it said something to the effect that I looked really good. So I was excited to open the e-mail. Here is the pic:
And when I saw it, I was really disappointed. I didn't think I looked that good - although I didn't think I looked terrible.
And then later today I did an intense workout at lunch. And I was dripping with sweat and I thought that I could almost see a tiny bit of abs sticking out. So I took a pic:
And when I saw how the pic turned out, all I could focus on was the huge drippy extra skin on my thighs and I couldn't see any ab definition at all.
So I guess in many ways I always take 2 steps forward and 1 step back when it comes to self-acceptance.
