Wink Wow, I'm starting to look GOOD!

I am my own worst critic so it is surprising that I'm saying this, but when I look in the bathroom mirrors at work, I keep staring because I think I'm looking all right

Sure, I still have a long way to go, but my face has thinned out. Now I see the good features rather than a gigantic double chin. And my hair is just the right length - I have had some "good hair days" recently. There are full length mirrors at the restroom exit and I used to try to ignore my reflection...now I check out the obvious weight loss.

Maybe it's just the lighting, but I am happy that I'm starting to look better. I wonder if anyone else notices me lingering at the mirror a little too LNG, staring at myself...

LOVE this post!!

I know what you mean. I would dread being anywhere with lots of mirrors, and became quite proficient at avoiding them. Now, I don't mind mirrors at all. I stop to admire myself all the time.

It's a wonderful thing, ain't it? Keep up the good work!!

Hahaha I am not alone!

I get annoyed if others are in the restroom when I go in, because I can't stand in front of the 3-way full-length mirror for as long as I'd like.
