I must admit, I am a bit shocked that I lost any weight at all. I indulged in some wicked cheesecake over the weekend, and it was absolutely wonderful. However, once back home from my mini-reunion with college friends, I did get back on track and worked out a lot, so I guess it evened out! Hooray!
So I have been working on re-vamping my style a bit. I got my hair done. I should post pics but not today. I am too tired. It is also my excuse for not posting yesterday like I should have. I did the weigh in. That has to count for something, but I digress… So, anywho, I got my hair done. I have given up on long hair all together. I tried from last fall until this summer to grow my hair out with intentions of cutting it and donating it. However, by summer, I realized that my hair was just not going to grow and do anything right. So I got a perm. That looked okay for a while, but I decided that since I can’t get my hair to grow, I had it cut and dyed. I like it. My husband, of course has yet to see it, but hopefully he will like it as well!
So yeah, new hair, new style. Kinda nice. Then I was reading about how Plus-Size fashion is gonna hit fashion week. I was intrigued. Actually, I think this is a huge deal! Honestly, I really wish that there were short models and also some that are in the middle (meaning not plus-size and not waifs). Seriously, I want an idea of what something might look like on me. As for the whole plus-size show, I think it is great for a few reasons. The first and most obvious is that there are not a whole lot of places to go to get stylish clothing if you are above a size 14. Not only that, the places that do carry plus-size clothing are often expensive. Maybe this will open it up a bit more for variety. I am just now at the point where I can shop in the regular stores. The other reason I think this is great is that maybe it might boost self-confidence. Being overweight has such a stigma attached to it. Yet, our country has a very high rate of obesity. However, I know that when I think I look good, I feel better about myself. Just because someone is overweight does not mean that they should have to feel bad about themselves. I say that too because I read some of the comments after the articles written about having plus-size models at fashion week and wanted to scream at some of those people.
So I think it is a step in the right direction. I would like to see some more diversity, but hey, it’s a start.
Sorry if I lost some of you in my rambling this week. Oh well, if you have been reading for a while or know me personally, you are probably used to it!
