Rediscovering my inner fashionista

The one thing I’m looking forward to about losing my excess weight is ‘allowing’ myself to buy one of the ‘dresses of my dreams’.  I think this dress, designed by Victoria Beckham is just beautiful.  No I don’t want to be skinny like her, but I cannot wait to see my waist again and show off my legs.

This dress will be one of my rewards for all the hard work I am putting in at the moment.  I must admit that re-reading the last sentence, I realise that the real reward comes in the form of:

  1. Having more energy than I know what to do with
  2. Not ONE hot flush since the day I started this new eating regime
  3. Knowing that I will live a longer and more productive life
  4. Being able to not worry about getting dressed every morning
  5. Having people telling me that my skin is ‘glowing’
  6. Being able to focus at work for hours on end
  7. Seeing Mr Man look at me with pride
  8. Looking at myself with pride
  9. Actually wanting to be more active on a daily basis
  10. Depression slowly making a retreat
  11. Making summer my ‘bitch’ – I want to write about this at length, but for the past 5 years or so since putting on this weight I have hated the thought of summer and having to get dressed in clothes that didn’t completely cover my body

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Here’s to nearly 28 days of eating well and not drinking.

I have a deathly fear of bees : I have a natural ballet 'turn-out' position : Most people think I walk like a duck : I use to hate my freckles when I was young, but now love them : I hate people calling me 'dude' : I have never been bitten by a spider or a snake or a horse or a dog : I never say 'cheers' at the end of a conversation or email : I always have to put on lip balm and get a glass of water before i go to bed :
