Body Revelation

Friday, January 15, 2016

A couple days ago, while browsing Pinterest I discovered an image that stopped me in my track. I thought "Wow, this is my body!" It's called broad-shouldered pear.

I kid you not. That is me to a T!

I have given quite some thoughts to my body and the clothes I wear lately (mainly in the form of "wahwah I have no style") and all of a sudden Pinterest opened a door of great ideas for my wardrobe. Also it gives me ideas on how to work out for my body type. I'm motivated! The down side is that this body type is prone to gaining weight quickly and hanging on to fat (um, yeah I noticed!). But wrap dresses and anything that cinches the waist and darkens the bottom part of my body should do the trick.

I know this sounds so superficial, but I'm so relieved to have found ideas for what to wear and how to wear it. I have felt so unmotivated to wear normal clothes (I work from home. Yoga pants and I are tight) and have felt so bad about my body and the way I look. Now I'm thinking I can have self confidence again in this area and that's really something nice.
