No longer scared of mirrors
Wednesday, February 18, 2015
I used to go out of my way to avoid mirrors, other than the bathroom vanity. I bought clothes only online so I wouldn't have to look at myself in fitting rooms. I'd look away if I had to pass by mirrors in stores or public restrooms. I tucked the floor-length mirror at home behind a dresser. Even walking into buildings with glass doors, I would look up or away to avoid dwelling on my reflection.
But the last couple of weeks I've started looking at myself again. I look "average" now, which still surprises me. I don't know if I'll be able to go far enough to look thin, but having a "normal" bmi and having an "average" silhouette is a happy situation so I like confirming when I have a chance.
