The Dress

image

I wore a really pretty dress to work today. It is kind of vintage looking, so I put on my awesome mother-of-pearl clip earrings. I felt a bit like my beautiful grandma, may she rest in peace. Someone said I looked nice, nicer than I have in a long time. It didn’t make me happy. I cried.

When you finally decide to lose weight, it is a hard journey. Lots of ups and downs and insecurities. Knowing how I look to the world is so different than how I feel inside.

I understand why people want a quick fix. But that just derails the process of finding health and learning that food is a fuel, not a crutch. I am staying the course, not giving up. Like everyone else on this journey, some days we just have to be reminded that there is gold at the end of the rainbow.

  1. I wish you felt (on the inside) as brilliant as you ARE on the inside! Hopefully one day you will see yourself through the eyes of all those who have got to experience your kindness. Even if just for a second, I think you’ll be blown away by what an incredible person you are! I frequently am, and I’ve just experienced it through the power of your words.

  2. Yes, Marushka, I agree. But your outfit was very pretty. Couldn’t see your face but I’m sure you’re pretty as well. Keep encouraged. It’s very hard to lose weight as we get older. The pounds come quick but shed slow. Drink lots of water if you can and get the proper amount of sleep.that helps shed pounds as well. I guess the rationale is, if you’re awake at 3 am you get hungry.if you go to bed at a decent hour, you’re asleep. God bless you and your new journey.!
