I know the scale says 226, but I am at a small deficit from when I took this picture… J
The reason why I have not wanted to post is inner struggle about my weight.
I promise this is NOT going to be a negative-self-loathing BLOG.
I know I have written about this subject time and time again. But that is only evidence it is a STRuGGLE and its on-going…One that with hard work I will conquer.
This is my TRUTH…that’s what I’m good at. And I think that’s how I relate to others.
I’m realizing health is a lifestyle change. (DUGH!)
I straddled the fence…and it has not paid off.
But the GOOD thing about my weight gain is what I know about fashion and how to relate that to my body type…
Sooo… I can dress myself at any size I am. (That is not an EXCUSE not to take care of myself BTW, just citing my resourcefulness!)
My Goals Are:
Dressing for the size I am while working toward the size I want to be.
Living in the moment.
Learning how to use my camera (without help).
Acceptance of self.
My fashion choices will change but my style will not!
I will have more life experiences and be opened to new opportunities.
My pictures will be crappy sometimes.
Being more confident and comfortable (and all which encompasses these traits).
That’s what this blog will be about…
The journey and what I’m wearing during it….
I AM cognizant of the fact that I have seen people that have started with me or after me…and THEY have kept it up. I have not. It makes me jealous and disappointed in myself.
But as the saying goes, you have to work with what you have…
Looking at these pictures made me realize I have a lot.
Thank you Seri…
