Impending World Doom

So, I’ve lost over a stone in weight since moving to the USA. Yeah, I’ve got a way to go but I’m pretty pleased with myself so far. I think it’s about time to start challenging my piss-poor self-esteem when it comes to body image.

A bit of background: I was a size and a half (is that even possible?) smaller and a World Champion athlete in high school and still refused to wear shorts or skirts above the knee because I was ‘too fat’.

BRACE YOURSELVES

I wore shorts. I even went in public for a split-second. I know; I’m pretty shocked, too.

The most amazing thing? I got whistled at, winked at. Nobody told me to cover my hideous self back up and the world didn’t implode.

In no way am I comfortable with the situation, and yeah, it’ll take a lot of gumption to do it again. Does anyone have any suggestions when it comes to challenging yourself and your self-confidence?

I would like to feel a little stronger, and definitely want to push myself.

Cool! littl30wl shared her post:So… I haven’t been here on a while. Injury kicked my ass - rebroke ribs for the fourth time, meaning one is now ‘floating’, then managed to half dislocate and strain my knee after trying to get out of bed in a way that wouldn’t hurt my ribs. Took a cushy office job and gained weight.I then went and bowed both tendons on my right hand, and was diagnosed with RSI. It’s been a freaking awful few months… any progress has been lost, and the Dr hasn’t given me a time when I can get back to riding and working out.
