Celebrating the positives / dressing to feel good

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Today I indulged in some retail therapy. I bought a size bigger skirt cos it looked better on me than the smaller one. (I have a figure 8 shape) I bought a shirt that hugged my curves not a amorphous smock, and a dress in a bright spring blue, cos i'm sick of wearing black. From now on I'm dressing "Mad Men" style I'm gonna dress to feel good look good and not worry too much about the size, just concentrate how it looks and feels. I'm still going to exercise and continue to eat clean, but I have to realise this is the long haul, and my body is never going to be like it was when i was 28, I having been reading a lot of inside out articles and realised that I have to love me as me now, otherwise i will continue to be too hard on myself, I need to chart a steady course and get out of the boom or bust cycle. Tomorrow back to the endocrinologist to continue the quest to determine why no weight loss despite a calorie deficit. Hopefully the specialist will set me in the right direction. I'm holding onto this positive happy feeling as I normally find shopping for clothes very stressful and upsetting. emoticon

    "To love one's self is the beginning of a lifelong romance" Oscar Wilde. This is one of my favorite quotes ever. Even though we're all here on Sparkpeople to do some work on ourselves, the truth is it's because we love ourselves that we're here in the 1st place.

    So, our lifestyle journey begins with that 1st step.

    The new clothes sound great. It sounds like you are going in the right direction by loving yourself as you are now while still progressing to an even better place. I hope the endocrinologist will find some answers for you. Have a great day as you continue on your journey.
