Selfies

20130502-215830

Awhile back on Instagram, Wendy made some comment to the effect of me being a fashionable person who takes pictures of themselves.  I got a little defensive, because yes, I take pictures of myself, but I hardly think of myself as fashionable.  I made me really think about why I take the pictures.

I realized that it started as me not having a mirror at home, and wanting to see how I looked.  Then it was easy to share them.  I didn’t used to dress like this.  Take those pictures up there and imagine in in loose fitting khakis and polo shirts.  So yes, I guess in comparison, fashionable.

While I’m not a believer that it takes a suit to be more professional, but I do think that caring about how you look, and liking how you look, changing your overall mood, and that a better mood makes for a better employee.  So since I wanted to show that I cared, I started trying to really focus on dressing better.  I had hoped it would come with a weight loss, but the fact that it hasn’t, hasn’t really mattered.

The reality of all of this, I really like who I am right now.  I like where I am at in my life.  There are things that I want to change, things that I want to improve (the state of my house) but when you get right down to it, I LIKE me.

It is a hard thing to balance though.  I like me, but I know that my weight and my health are a real risk to me.

So I signed up for a 10K at the end of August.  I’m not sure how I’m going to pull it off
