Good Morning to all. We are a little under the weather here, so I am just trying to get through it and feel better by my big weekend. I have been shopping both for my Birthday outfit, and for my husband since he lost a few pounds as well and works later than I do. It has been a project, shopping for a man. I just need accessories for myself, I found some killer heals to go with my dress, these should put my 5’2 frame at 5’8. They are that high, I hope I can walk.
Just a quick post, this cold has got the best of me and I do not have much energy, but I have been using the Neti Pot and I seem to be getting better at a quicker pace than my husband who refuses to use it. I believe it truly works, and I can say I can breathe this morning.
Wishing you a beautiful day. My toy drive is in full swing and we deliver the toys on Monday. Christmas just comes and goes too quickly, I will be happy when I can return to my normal routine and lose this 30-40 pounds once the new year arrives. I got a hair trim the other day, and I had not been in the salon in months and the staff went on and on about my weight loss, that made my week.
Hello to all. I am out of town for a weekend getaway in Phoenix, Arizona. I wanted to touch base on a subject that is hard for me to face since I have been overweight, fashion. I feel wonderful that I am slowly achieving my weight loss and fitness goals but I admit shopping for clothes has been a daunting task. You are no longer as overweight as you were but still a long way off to your goal. Not knowing which fashions will look good on your transitioning physique is problematic when you have an event you must shop for. I am not at the point where I feel I can make fashion risks so I play it safe with jeans and summer dresses. I normally live in work out clothes but there comes a time when you have to wear more than yoga apparel and look a little more refined. Sometimes I wish I could have a stylist when I get to my goal weight to help me reveal my new figure with fashion.
I purchased two new summer dresses for my weekend in the valley of the sun. One I wore, the other I never had the chance to wear since we spent so much time swimming. I did decide to buy the white dress when a kind stranger in the dressing room said it was beautiful on me. I could not see that myself because my mind is still over 200 lbs. An extra eye when shopping is necessary when trying on clothes after weight loss. Sometimes are own vision of our reflection is distorted with a memories of how we used to feel and look when we were overweight. Time to make over our body image as well as our wardrobe. I am a work in progress always.
