Positive Thinking and New Clothes
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
Yesterday was not a god day (as evinced by my very depressing blog entry!). But I am feeling better today. I think bad diet and hormones really do affect one's mood and outlook on life.
Really, I did have an over-indulgent weekend, and I paid for it yesterday in terms of depression as well as having gained a few!
But I ate well yesterday, took vitamins, drank water and tea, and today is a better day (although it is only 5:15 in the morning!).
I also shopped - I realize I had no nice clothes to wear because I've outgrown them all and had been avoiding buying bigger sizes. As a result, I felt uncomfortable and un-good. I sucked it up, bought larger size pants and tops, in nice styles, and a very nice winter jacket.
I do intend to lose the weight, but feeling unattractive is a self-fulfilling prophesy. If you don't dress well and take care of your looks, you feel bad about yourself. You feel bad about yourself, so you don't eat well, you binge, you dress poorly. So you actually do look bad.
Time to stop that. I will wear a new pair of pants today, and put on my fancy new coat.
