Some of you may not be aware that almost a year ago I was referred to a dietician to try and reduce the old poundage. I initially lost a stone fairly quickly, but have fluctuated ever since. Recently, I have taken the view not to diet as such, and convinced myself that by not dieting I was not actually eating as much as when I was dieting….. This is clearly not the case…. Lol! I went to the dietician today and in the last two months I have put on approximately 7lbs!!!! Myth busted!
Having become more and more comfortable in my own skin, and surrounding myself with people who love me for being me, I can honestly say I am not trying to lose weight for cosmetic purposes, I know I am fit as f**k (LMAO) but merely for health reasons, as being a short fat bird, my BMI is excessive, which clearly puts pressure on the heart, I get out of breath carrying out the simplest of tasks, and I have a 5-year-old who needs me around as long as possible. So, myth busted, by not dieting you will NOT lose weight…. Lol! But all that aside, with the exception of sounding like a puffa train after walking up the stairs, I still know I am fat and fab and continue to celebrate the curves, and today was no exception…. Here is my Cruella Deville Outfit of the Day:
Now, I love this outfit…. I feel totally fabulous in it, boobage, curves etc etc etc! I first saw this jacket on Betty Pamper of Pamper & Curves during one of her recent visits to Taking Shape, Liverpool. When I then stopped by the Peterborough Store for their Spring Event and saw it on the hanger I had to try it on, as Betty had looked so fab…. And the rest is history as they say. I hope Betty doesn’t mind me trying to steal her style, but she does always look so amazing doesn’t she, so is it any wonder? I got the jacket in a size 24, I’m not sure that I couldn’t have got away with the 22, but I didn’t even try it to be fair, but when the tie at the back is tightened up it gives a lovely shape to the waist…. I am very proud of my waist even if I am a chubster! You can get the Bliss Jacket here.
I guess I really should buy some clothes from somewhere else other than Taking Shape so I can blog about them instead, but Taking Shape have some absolutely beautiful items in at the moment and they are just getting better and better (I’ve already seen a frock in the new collection…. I am terrible!).
Have you ever convinced yourself of something only to have the myth busted? I’d love to hear about it.
