breakthrough in my weightloss journey!

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Last night I had a breakthrough in my weightloss journey.

I don't do well on deadlines that have to do with this journey, even though in other parts of my life, deadlines are usually the reason why I get things done.

Last night, after I came home from a barbeque, I was thinking about my wedding in march next year. I've bought a strapless weddingdress and because I have these sunmarks (I always have a white "t-shirt" on, because of the sun) I should get rid of them. I really don't like to get artificial sun, so I have to find a way to get these tanmarks off or filled in with tan.
We will make a large trip to South East Asia before we have our wedding and I figured it should be easy to wear something strapless there.

So I tried a shirt on, that I could make strapless and found out I actually look pretty good in strapless clothes!!!! I don't have a lot of fat on my shoulders!

Next to that, I got to buy two outdoorpants, wich fit me perfectly.

Because I found this out and because I ordered my wedding dress in the size I am now, all the pressure has fallen of me.

I have outfits for SE Asia holiday, I have a weddingdress that will look stunning, even in the size I am now and I am allowed to lose weight, but I don't HAVE TO.

And that is my key.

Everytime in the past, when I said to myself: you really have to lose weight, this or that amount before this or that is going to happen (holiday, party, etc), I started to sabotage myself. Don't know why. But everytime I said to myself: well, let's try to lose some weight, no pressure, I could make these healthy choices. But then something came along, I HAVE TO lose more weight and then the opposite would happen.

So now I have peace. I will have a great holiday, I will look great in my weddingdress and it's okay if I stay the same. I feel so relieved! It's really stupid, that I have to let go, to get something done, but this is how I work.

So I CAN lose weight, I don't HAVE TO, because I am already beautiful, a real foxy lady ;)

So happy right now!!!!!

    Wish you have a great trip, you will look great in your wedding dress, no matter what's your size and weight, most important you feel great about yourself and that should make you shine in and out :D

South East Asia trip? That's where I live :D It's sunshine and rainy whole year (at least, my place is) so be prepared with sunblock and erm, rain block? LOL Perhaps here you will get rid those "white shirt" but be careful to not get lobster-red look!
