Who ARE you?
This is what I say to myself whenever I catch a glimpse of the woman in the mirror with the bulging belly.
That can't be me - can it? I mean, I don't look like that. I have abs. I have a waistline. And I know I've always been well endowed, but my boobs have shape. I worked so hard last summer to lose those 10 lbs that I gained after the wedding and was in the best shape I've been in in a long time - maybe ever. That can't be me.
But it is.
That's me in the mirror with the swollen belly. That's me with the inflated boobs. That's me with all the extra padding.
Then I remember something that makes it all worthwhile. It's NOT just me. It's US.
And that makes me smile at the woman in the mirror.
