Sunday, June 16, 2013

I had a wedding to go to yesterday. The wedding was for my younger cousin, sister of the one that thought I was pregnant on New Year's even 2011. One of the kicks that got me started on this journey. I have not seen her since that party. Needless to say the nerves where up.

Hubby insisted on coming with, I wanted him to stay home but he was feeling ok. He managed to get down some steak (first "real" food I've let him have). He had one drink. He also went to work today. I'm hoping he does ok. He is acting normal but he still doesn't "look" ok.

So, back to the wedding. I only knew my aunt, 2 cousins, and dad there. My cousin Moose (this nickname goes back to softball and for 30 years - it's never gonna change) said I was looking good. She's on weight watchers. We discussed different strategies and weight loss. It was kind of nice to have someone right there to support me eating well at the wedding.

Dad's wife was a PIA as always, but I was basically able to avoid her except during dinner.

I ate well and did have a decent time but I'm SO not used to have to get "dressed up". I really wanted to look my best being who we were going to see. Hubby loved the outfit - said I looked like Jessica Rabbit. I felt like a freak! Hair in my face and couldn't take a full stride in the dress. I'm so not a girly girl.

Not that my cousin who felt the need to say something about my weight gain even noticed. I guess it's ok, she was with her friends and partying but I was really hoping for at least something after the last time saw her. Oh well.

So, what do ya'll think?

    That dress is amazing! You look good as a girl.

Some people only look for the negative so that's all they can see. They don't see the good in anyone or anything, and they don't understand that this kind of out look is a problem. When they do see that someone has done something great, they don't really see it. She may have been the trigger for you to lose weight, but you didn't do it for her so she doesn't really matter.

    You look gorgeous in that dress! Red is definitely your power color!!

You bet your cousin noticed, and she didn't say anything because she felt guilty about her comments about your weight before and she's jealous of how great you look!

    I think you look fantastic, and so did your DH. He's he one that counts. Glad to hear he is doing better.

You should have told your cousin that if she couldn't say something nice, don't say anything at all !!

Just be you. emoticon

    You look fantastic Kitty! Like ANATASHIKI said, she probably didn't say anything because you look so good and she was jealous!

There's always a PIA in every family I think. emoticon emoticon Glad you only had to deal with for a little bit at dinner.

Glad your hubby got to go with you and that he's feeling a bit better. Glad also that you had a good time despite the fact that you were uncomfortable wearing that outfit.

    Holy Cow Kitty - you look amazing. I know it would have felt great having her say something, but the unfortunate truth is she probably doesn't even remember it. Funny though, being what has made you turn your life around and all. But the pics are your proof. You have done it!

    I'm glad the hubby was feeling up to being out and about. I'm sort of thinking that dress might have had something to do with it. I wouldn't leave my wife out unescorted looking that good.

    You look beautiful! My friend had the same experience. She had lost some weight and the one person she wanted feed back from said nothing. I said to her, and I will say to you, "Game over, you won!"

    You look so hot!!!!
I love red dresses but this looks like it was made for you! And the hair is so right for the outfit... Don't know if you felt awkward but you are gorgeous and I can't see it in the photos!

I guess this woman is one of those who are there to say the bad, but don't care to share a good word! Anyway, she did good to you, without even knowing since it was one of the reasons you started this journey.

    You do look great! I never wear dresses and I'm not a girly girl either. I would feel very awkward in one, but if I did, I hope I would look as comfortable as you do in yours! I can't even tell that you're hating it!

    Kitty, my dear, you look beautiful! And I am in the business of knowing! Take it from an expert - you look great in that outfit! You do not look umcomfortable at all either - looks like you were meant for that look! It's good to mix things up once in a while.
I am glad your hubby got to go too. Maybe you shold have date ights were you dressup every now and then!? Might be fun! emoticon emoticon

    Honey, there's no way ANYONE in that room didn't notice you! You're HOT HOT HOT. As for your cousin . . . let it go. Like I said, there's NO WAY she didn't see you and notice. Just not "humble" enough to compliment you. AND honestly, probably jealous! Because I can't anyone looked any hotter!

I am glad that your DH is feeling better. Hope he continues to take ccare of himself.

HUGS and smiles.

Don't let your cousin's thoughtless words bring you down. Take your power back from it.

    Well, Jessica, you look totally hot, so I'm sure your cousin noticed. The fact that she couldn't bring herself to tell you how good you look is an indication of what kind of person she is. Don't give her another thought.
