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!
