I almost got picked up by a man!

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Okay so I will say this right out of the gate, this is a bragging blog!!

Today I put on my new size 10 dress in a gorgeous turquoise colour. I bought the dress as a gift to myself for losing 90 pounds. It is the kind of dress that shows all the curves in a classy way. I was very nervous to wear it because there is NO hiding in that dress.

I went to work and received lots of nice complements which is always a boost to your confidence. But the funniest thing happened when I was driving home from work. There is a lot of construction around my office so the traffic is a nightmare. I was sitting in traffic and I noticed a gentleman beside me waving so I rolled down my window. The gentleman asked for my phone number!

I was shocked!! This has never ever happened to me before. I smiled and said thank you and rolled up my window. I sat in my minivan and so shook my head.

Now my hubby has always told me how beautiful he thinks I am. But I never have really thought of myself that way. I have been trying to retrain my thought process during this journey but this event really threw me for a loop. I am still smiling so I would like to send out a huge thank you to the gentleman in traffic that showed me a new view of myself. I am still Catherine the mother of four, the dedicated wife, the volunteer, the kick boxer, the zumba fanatic and now I am also a hot girl in a minivan!!

I hope everyone has a great day I know I have. And remember we are all in this together!

    I vote for a picture, too! And there's nothing wrong with bragging a little once in a while! Especially when you have such a good reason to do so!
I hope your day today is as good as yesterday! Even better!
