I am having doubts about my little black dress! I tried it on tonight and I am just not feeling it! I look in the mirror and I see all of these flaws that I did not see yesterday! My ass looks HUGE, my hips got about 6" bigger, my stomach decided to come back. I can keep going...my shoulders look like Michael Phelps, when did they become so broad! So, I went and bought another one. A dress, A dress. Geez, do you actually think I could go and pick up a pair of shoulders.
I took DH with me to buy the first one and he picked the one he liked and I do like it too. I think I may have been more excited that it was a size that I liked more than the fit. But he loved it so that was enough for me! So, it makes sense that the dress I bought tonight is more of my taste. No bubbles, just baubles, no frill, just simple. Oh and did I mention it is a bigger size. Yup, I am not sure that i needed a bigger size, it is just what i felt comfortable in. I feel that in the other one you could see every bump & roll. Oh and don't think that I just looked at one mirror, no I looked at myself from EVERY MIRROR IN MY HOUSE!!! And I went as far as taking pictures of myself.
This time last year, I weighed 188. And now here I sit between 159-160 pounds. What is the big deal, it is a dress! It is a dress that I would not have dared worn last year. Fat Carol would have put on a dress and walked out of the house thinking that she looked like a million bucks!
This blog has taken me about an hour to get out. I am going to bed and I am going to wake up with a fresh attitude and things are going to be great!
Highlights of this week: I did cut my hair. Almost 7" I needed a change and my Tigresses talked me into. I am glad that they did!
And I did it, I signed up for my first 5K. It is paid for so there is no turning back now!
I am going to bed! Please forgive any spelling and/or grammatical errors that may occur in this blog. I am too tired to proofread and this took me too long to type to just delete it!
