It’s almost three months since I’ve started this blog, and the changes I’ve made are immeasurable. I noticed another one this morning. I put on a cute black and white lace top, and JC told me she loved that shirt, and maybe I should wear it to this fancy baby shower I’m going to on Saturday instead of today (it’s for a former co-worker, and a couple of current co-workers will be there). I thought she had a good point, and put on a different top instead. Then it hit me – I wasn’t worried about what to wear on Saturday, I haven’t given it a thought until this morning. Before, I would have obsessed for a month prior over what would possibly look good on me, and become depressed because I realized I didn’t really have any options. Just cover myself up, and try my best.
It is so FREEING to not worry about what I will wear. I have lots of cute clothes that fit me right now. I’m far from my goal weight, but I still feel good about myself again. I’m looking forward to this shower at a beautiful place (Giando on the Water in Brooklyn overlooking the East River), and looking forward to socializing. I’m not dreading it because of the way I look, or how embarrassed I am of myself. I have a lot more to go on this weight loss path, but I’m enjoying myself along the way.
