I've been thinking lately about my self perception. Even though I am decidedly smaller than I was a year ago, I still perceive myself as bigger. Its funny how the brain, supposedly the most dextrous and facile organ in my body, is so slow in keeping up with the current state of my body. I walk past some beautiful clothes in a store and pass them up because I can see they don't carry plus sizes. Then I think, "Wait - I'm a L-XL now." Or I'll show up at a dinner party with a full table and think, there is no way I'll be able to squeeze in. Then everyone skooches over a little and I slide into my tiny spot without a problem. I guess I'm just wondering when my big brain will catch up with my suddenly smaller body.
