Why is it that when I was smaller I was so self-conscious about wearing body-hugging workout pants, yet now that I've gained weight... I don't care too much that I'm not perfect in them. I actually look worse than I did before, yet I wear them more often now. Maybe the cold weather has something to do with that. It certainly makes a difference when its freezing outside as to whether I have capris on, or bare legs with shorts. I'll take the capris!
I've come to the determination that I don't look perfect in them, but 98% of the population doesn't either. So why should I be so concerned about wearing them? Everyone else wears them with all kinds of shapes and bodies. I mean seriously, there are only a few people who look absolutely perfect in them. By perfect I mean... flat tummy, no extra saddlebag thighs, cute perky butt (not flat, not saggy, not huge), muscular legs, and no muffin top. So this explains why there are so many people who DO wear them and aren't perfect, because gosh, that's a high standard to attain... perfection. So I guess my thought is this... I've accepted the fact that I'm not perfect. That has made me less self-conscious about my body, because I am accepting it for what it is. That has therefore, allowed me to wear those pants more often and not care what I look like in them (at least not enough to NOT wear them ha ha). Strange isn't it? I don't know I just thought it was. What do u think?
