I’ve noticed through my current weight loss journey that while I SEE I’m losing weight (mainly because I can fit into clothes I haven’t worn in years) I’m having a hard time getting my mind to wrap around this. My mind seems to be having a hard time getting skinny. I’ve heard this happens but I just thought it was almost a myth, but no, it’s true. I can see the numbers getting less on the scale and my pant size shrinking, I when I look in the mirror there is still a disconnect between what my eyes see and my minds sees.
I have mentioned several times that this has become such a spiritual journey for me–living a more holistic life style. And, I suppose this is part of it. As my body becomes smaller I will need to also change my mentality and make sure my mind catches up. I will need to continue to see myself for what the Lord sees me–his precious creation. I suppose I need to tell myself to “think skinny!”
