Well my friends, a few weeks ago I posted about 2 dresses that I bought for my 20th high school reunion. Then after I got them I went into a slump where I gained some weight due to water retention in my legs. I was depressed then had self-doubt about those two dresses. Both were the same style, one black that was the larger of the two and the other was red and smaller than the black one. I wanted to wear the red one for two reasons. 1.) Obviously because it was the smaller of the two and 2.) For once I wanted to be noticed. I didn't want to be the typical black dress. I wanted to be bold and daring. Well I thought after my slumpy weeks that I would have to wear the black dress but when I tried it on the day before the reunion to my surprise the black one was frumpy looking. IT WAS TOO BIG!!! I felt like I was wearing a curtain!
The red one was a touch too revealing on the imprefections but hey that's what Spanx is for right?? So I wore that sexy little dress,
I looked good, and felt good!! I walked with confidence because I had achieved my goal of fitting into that sexy little number!!!
Even though the struggles I have had the past few weeks. I was ready to quit out of frustration but I stuck to it because I knew if I gave up and gave in I would definitely not be meeting any of my goals. So I had my pity party got up brushed myself off and hammered down the work outs changing up my routine a bit. I ended up dropping the last 2 pounds that I had gained but I guess I had accomplished some toning because the dress didn't fit before at my current weight but now it does. It is all about persistance. So if you are reading this and struggling. Hammer down and do it!! Don't look back, keep looking forward and work it. Just make little changes even when you don't feel up to it. Keep working out, keeping tracking what you are eating. If you had a rough day, FORGET ABOUT IT!!! Tomorrow or heck even your next meal is a better day!
