I discovered a mistake I made after my first daughter was born. I didn't like my body, but I couldn't get up the motivation to change it. Looking back now, I know it was because none of my clothes fit, so I was wearing either too tight or too loose clothes, most of which were passed on to me from someone else. Nothing I wore felt good on me, or felt like ME. I finally figured out - how could I have possibly been motivated to change, when I felt like crap??
So now, after the birth of Felicity, even though I may (hopefully) lose a lot of weight, I am still determined to like myself now. That means, buying new clothes for myself (most second hand anyway!) that fit me wonderfully NOW. I've went out and spent a couple hundred dollars and I have a whole new wardrobe, and already I've lost a couple pounds. Looking forward to continuing along this path of looking good and feeling good, every step of the way, at all my different weights!
