Watershed moment

Thursday, May 19, 2016

I have one pair of pants that I wear almost constantly. No, not really constantly, but A LOT. My "comfortable (fat)" pants. They are corduroy and are in a green that I love. A couple of weeks ago I noticed they were getting rather threadbare. And yesterday, they ripped. Right up the bottom. There are so few clothes I feel comfortable in. And that's no mystery-my clothes are too small. I HATE getting dressed because I HATE my clothes, I hate the way they look, what they are, etc.
When my pants ripped I almost cried. Because, what am I going to wear? Obviously I have to buy new clothes. Day before yesterday I was in a thrift store-killing time-and I was looking at books. And the book - "Flip the Switch" was there. $1.99. It's by Jim Karas who also wrote "Business Plan for the Body", a book that really inspired me when I lost weight about 12 years ago. So I bought it. I haven't made any proclamations to myself, but when I went grocery shopping I bought a lot of vegies, yogurt, lean meat.....I'm like Wow. Am I turning a corner here? What's going on? Perhaps rather than my mind, my body is leading the way?....

    How about dress for success? No, I don't mean a business suit, I mean dress your body the way it is RIGHT NOW. Remember that show "What Not To Wear"? It was never about body shaming. "It's not about your body, it's about how you dress your body." Use clothes to increase your confidence, not to hide your lumps.

    I've also got a thought for you to mull over. Two blogs back you were trying the No S diet. I don't think you're the kind of person who reacts well to the word "no". And the word "diet" is already problematic for most people. So what can you come up with that is a Yes Plan for Life?
