Wonderful You Wednesday: When I Look In the Mirror

Welcome to Wonderful You Wednesday at My Life as a Trimommy.  This is an ongoing series where I will have a post by myself or a guest that focuses on body image and self esteem.

I haven't weighed myself for at least 8 weeks.  That's a very long time for me.  The reason I haven't weighed myself is because of what I saw in my mirror.

One day during my 50k training, I looked in the mirror as I was getting dressed.  Instead of seeing arms that could be more toned, thighs that could be a little smaller and abs that could be a little flatter, all of a sudden I saw myself.  

Now when I look in the mirror, I see

a beautiful, strong runner.

a mother of two kids.

an endurance athlete.

a friend.

a confidante.

a wife.

a musician.

a person who loves life.






What do you see when you look in the mirror?


  1. you are definitely one step ahead of me on that one, my friend. :) i love this series, ps.

  2. awesome. I'm about to toss my scale. : )

  3. When I look in the mirror, I see my mother's butt. Until she takes it back, I fear I must continue to obsess about the number on the scale.
    But, I've been doing it less and less often. And someday, hope to not own a scale. Or look at the number on it when the doctor weighs me. Or step on the scale in friend's or family member's bathrooms.

  4. when I look in the mirror I see skin that lacks the elasticity and dewiness it once had... okay I know..not the point. In all seriousness while I do see that I also see a woman! A woman that is now the mother of two and is STRONGER and more fit than she has ever been! :)

    Kelly.. you are AWESOME!

  5. You are amazing. Thank you for continuing to inspire me and so many others!


Woo-hoo!! I want to hear from you!
