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.
