So hello spark people out there. Yes I am back AGAIN. I have let myself gain back the 50 wonderful pounds I lost. I lost sight of where I was and let myself get back to the larger unhappier and Way unhealthier me. So what made me finally stop and say "Hey your getting too big... again"? I got a promotion! I have worked as a nurse in scrubs for the last 8 years. I don't know if many of you have notice but scrubs look good on about anyone (or bad depending on how you look at it). My scrubs were like my body armor. They hid all my inadequacies in loose fitting boxy material. I didn't have to face that I gained the weight back or that I was no longer happy with my appearance because everyone looks bad in scrubs. I have recently been promoted to director of infection control and I start in 2 weeks. In my new job we have to wear BUISNESS ATTIRE I realized shopping for an outfit for my interview there is a whole lot more of me to fit into clothes than before. Dress pants and dress blouses do not hide your figure. So I did much research on how to dress for your size, and what looks good on larger women. Then I decided that's crap! instead of dressing a body that I am unhappy with and letting my self esteem plummet into oblivion I am going to fight for the health and the body I deserved! I am only 28 years old and I will not just resign myself to be this size forever. So again I say hello fellow sparkers, I've missed you!
