bipolar mom shares her insights on everyday life


First of all, let me say that I do believe that anorexia is a real disease and I am not trying to make light of it.  So, please don’t email me or make comments about my being insensitive.  I know someone who is anorexic and it is so very sad and I pray for her.

Now, with that out of the way, let me say that I think I am “non-anorexic.”  Anorexics look in the mirror and think they look fat no matter how thin they are.  I look in the mirror and think, “Hey, I’m lookin’ pretty good!”  (The scale and my clothes disagree.)  Granted, I don’t look in the mirror often.  Just when I’m heading out the door and want to make sure my skirt isn’t tucked into my underwear.  Otherwise, it’s just a look in the mirror to put on or fix my makeup.

Is anyone else like this?  Did Mama Cass look in the mirror and say, “You are one groovy lookin’ chick, babe!”?

  1. I have the SAME THING! The total opposite. I like to just say I have GREAT self-esteem.

  2. I sort of have what you ladies have! I really do feel the same as I did 40 lbs. ago, even though the new re-sizing of clothes they’re doing now says differently;)! But that person staring back at me from the mirror does not compute with my own image still in my mind…..I’m just going with ‘denial’!

    Happy Mother’s Day!!

  3. You are not alone my plus size sister. My best friend and I are both plus size, but we love our curves and think we are beautiful. But there are times where I look at myself in the mirror and think I look great. And then I wonder if I think I’m prettier than I actually am. My Best friend asked me the same thing. It all just comes down to confidence. I like who I am so, why not love my body too.
