First, I want everyone to know how much your comments/support/etc. meant to me on last week’s “weight” post. I feel so much better now; I think the weight of the world fell down on me right before I wrote that post, and I was probably still suffering from too much frozen yogurt with cheesecake bites in it (!!) from the night before. Honestly, Melissa’s comment with the link to Justine Musk’s blog post on changing your life really had an impact on me; I even signed up for Pure Barre classes twice a week for the next two weeks…(read the post).
I just need to start making THE RIGHT decisions when it comes to my body and stop getting angry at myself when I don’t (I’d win first prize in a contest to see who could get mad and stay mad at themselves the longest. no joke). I also need to stop eating frozen yogurt before bed. Anyway, I’m glad I wrote that post, and I’m glad so many of you responded. Too many bloggers just talk about weight loss and body image on the surface, or preach about how to get it right, but they never share their personal experiences and struggles. I just wanted to keep it real 😉
And yes, you read correctly above, I am wearing a jacket from Forever21, and it’s a size 2x. Which doesn’t bother me at all. I’m a little frustrated that I finally gave in to the allure of fast fashion and bought something from Forever21, but this jacket is SO CLOSE to an Isabel Marant jacket I’ve had on my lust list forever, so I had to do it. I mean…for $22…I had to. And it seems to be very well made, so I think it will serve me well.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead!!
