Where I am is where I am supposed to be

Thursday, March 03, 2011

Today I had all these plans to clean the house, do laundry, get to my bridesmaid dress fitting at David's and get ready for my trip tomorrow to Ct for my friend's bridal shower......
This morning my 8 year old woke up with strep! Enter a Dr. appt for an hour, sitting at pharmacy, and still making it to my fitting thankfully, only 10 min. late!

When I was standing up there in front of the mirror all pinned up, I wanted to cry. I somehow thought it would look better ya know. Yet there in full glory was revealed that familiar "bubble butt", belly roll and huge arms. Then to add insult to injury these major alterations cost $160 which is almost the price of a full new dress! It was a down moment.

Thankfully said friend cheered me up and thought I looked great. :) How great are friends?! And then I realized I have lost 40 lbs. I am just about 1/3 of the way to my goal!! I am a lot less "puffy" and "roll-y" than I was last June and I felt a bit better. Then I took it a step forward and posted it on my page, because this is a work in progress and I am sick of hiding in shame. NO more! I have worked hard and just wait until the after picture goes up. It will be GREAT to compare then!

I am still learning to love myself right where I am!
