Why I waited so long.

I recently shared with you how great it felt to finally replace my old worn out foundations. I also promised to share with you why I waited so long.

Here it is. My truth:

I waited so long because I was trying to lose weight. I had visions in my head of what that perfect size and weight was for me. I had fantasies about all the cute clothes that I was going to wear once I finally got to that coveted number on the scale. I had all these thoughts about how much better I would feel and how much better my life would be.

"Love yourself - Do it now!  Don't wait until you get well or lose weight, or get the new job, or the new relationship." - Louise Hay

Then, I started to question myself and my thoughts. Was it true? Could I only feel better about myself by losing weight? Would my life be that much better? What would I be doing differently? How would I behave if I was at my ideal size/weight? Are there things that I could do today that would help me to feel good regardless of my size/weight?

So here’s what I did:

  • I started saying “no” to putting things in or on my body that made me feel like crap whether it was worn out clothing or sugar. I’m not suggesting you “give up” anything or do what I did. Just be aware of how doing certain things makes you feel and ask yourself if that’s really what you want.
  • I got rid of anything that made me feel gross or outdated.
  • I started doing the little things that went by the wayside like putting on my lipstick and wearing cute sandals vs. flip flops.
  • I bought two new summer dresses (along with the new bras) that I love and that fit.

And do you wanna know what happened?

The more I started to care for myself and treat my body like she mattered, the more I started caring for myself and making better choices. The weight is slowly melting away. I have a ways to go but in the meantime, I feel much better about getting dressed in the morning.

Feeling good about what you put on your body is sexy.
