I've lost quite a bit of weight in the last month. I won't go into details about how much, but enough where I am noticing it again. We had our company Christmas Party a couple of weekends ago and Brian insisted I buy a new dress for it. So off I went to Penningtons grudgingly. Brian's friend Monique joined us and she helped me pick out my dress. I remember looking at it on the hanger and hating it at first. Monique just told me to try it on anyway so I did. I remember looking at myself in the mirror with it on and thinking: "Hey...I look pretty good!" Then a complete stranger walked up to me and told me she hoped that I would buy that dress because it looked amazing on me.
She had me at that. I walked back into the change room, looked at myself again and broke down. These were happy tears this time. I kept thinking to myself "I'm back! I'm back on track! And DAMN!! I look wicked!" Then I said the same thing out loud to myself.
I have never done that before.
Here are a couple of pictures of me in my new dress. I love the way I feel and look in it.
Sometimes, all it takes is being gentle with yourself and giving yourself credit. I know I don't give myself enough credit, and this is going to stop.
I am one amazing, strong and competent chick...and nothing is going to stop me!
Merry Christmas everyone!
