I try on a lot of clothes. After losing so much weight, I’m faced with having to completely rebuild my wardrobe. It took me years to accumulate all the clothes I used to wear, and I am starting from scratch. I often overhear other women talking in the dressing rooms and I hear a lot of things that really bother me. I hear about hating fat thighs or disgusting bellies. I hear about breasts that are too big or butts that are too flat. Nobody, it seems, is ever satisfied with her appearance.
So I thought, wouldn’t this be a good place to leave messages for other women that might make them stop and think about our mental relationships to our bodies. The dressing room is an emotional place. I have been very upset and extremely elated in dressing rooms. No matter what you’re feeling when you are alone with that mirror, you are not alone. Body-dissatisfaction is a society-wide crisis.
I ordered some cards from a really cool little online service HERE and I’m going to leave them in dressing rooms for whoever comes along next.
Then I thought, I could also “leave” these cards online! So here they are. Feel free to share anywhere you think somebody might need a little pick me up or a little inspiration, or print them out and leave them around your house. Enjoy!
