I'm made do with accepting my body and learning to love my new body. There are definitely days where I feel insecure but the good days definitely outnumber the bad days.
I used to not like my wide hips and thunder thighs. I realize now that I actually like having a butt. The important thing is learning how to dress for my shape.
I can't emphasize how important it is to TRY ON CLOTHES when you go shopping. Take pictures with your smartphone and see how it translates on camera. I can't tell you the number of times I used to grab something only to realize the article of clothing either didn't fight correctly or didn't look good on me. Do not take it personally when a certain trend doesn't work on you! There are plenty of other options out there. You just have to try new things and step out of your comfort level a bit.
I headed to Target yesterday to pick up a few things. I saw some fitted workout pants that were on sale. I've been looking for long pants because I'm starting to get an ugly tan-line on my legs where my shorts meet my thigh.
I immediately grabbed the Short M's only to find out in the dressing room that they were too big. I was amazed because I'm so used to having a wide bottom that I couldn't believe I could fit into an S. I grabbed a Size S and proceeded to the dressing room.
I tried them out this morning during my 7.0 mile run! They were perfect giving me support without being uncomfortable.
My thunder thighs and wide hips used to be the bane of my existence. I've grown to accept them and love the fact that I work-out harder and faster because my lower half gives me such good support.
Yes, my boobs are smaller but what I've gained is so much more important than that!
