I can't wait to be able to say that I have reached my goal! It may take longer than 12 weeks but I hope by then I'll be well on my way.

How will I feel? From past experience I am going to have mixed feelings. Elated because I can get back into my gorgeous Karen Millen dresses...get into that special date dress and feel as fit as a fiddle. I know I will love the sense of achievement and I like the attention too...

Then there's the other side...when the attention gets too much I panic. I get scared, I withdraw and then I start eating again. I really don't want this to happen this time, so it's going to need all my will power, but I deserve to feel happy in my own skin without someone invading my space.

    your worry is very familiar to me. i have felt the same thing. keep looking around on here and reading--it will help you. understanding where that feeling of fear when you are noticed is deep rooted and complicated. try being brave and exposing yourself (mentally) MORE when you feel this way--it might help. hiding is a behavior you have cultivated for a long time, and if you are like me, you are pretty good at it. you need to learn how NOT to hide, and practice makes perfect :-)

    Visualize yourself wearing those dresses feeling not skinny but fit as a fiddle and how awesome THAT feeling is. You're right! You DESERVE to be happy in your own skin with NO ONE invading your space. No panic sweetie. Own it!
