Eye of the Beholder

This morning, on my way into the shower, I found myself in front of the bathroom mirror. I was bending over to rinse my mouth after brushing my teeth, and suddenly I noticed how my stomach looked as I bent over. It didn't used to look like that. My body didn't used to fold that way. Who is that person in the mirror?

I found myself holding a roll of stomach fat in my hand and thinking, "This didn't used to be here!" I found myself entertaining fairly obsessive exercise thoughts about how many hours I could spend at the gym if I really put effort into it. How many pounds I could lose if I just got off my lazy ass.

I felt hideous, and -- at the same time -- pissed at myself for feeling hideous.

I want to see that body in the mirror and love it, instead of seeing rolls of fat. Not there yet, though.
