I’ve been on my fitness journey for a couple months now, and I must say that I am seeing results slowly but surely.
I get tempted ALOT , usually after stressful days and work. I mean who can argue that dulce de leche on a waffle cone can’t fix any bad day . But so far I’ve been pushing through.
I am also constantly fighting against the allure of my favourite dish, Alfredo pasta, but so far I’ve been winning.
My “pineapple allergy” has prevented me from enjoying my favourite shakes and smoothies and a whole host of other foods I used to enjoy. But that’s life, well atleast my life at the moment.
I’m here to offer some solace for those who may be on a similar journey.
Yes, it sucks that you can’t eat a whole tub of icecream when you are feeling down or have the occassional snicker or cadbury or pretty much enjoy anything that makes you truly happy ; but it all feels worth it when you put on your favourite pair of jeans and it is too big around the waist, or your clothes begin to fit you loosely in all the right places.
It feels worth it when your friends or family start to comment on your weight loss and finally when you have to go shopping for a whole new wardrobe because you’v dropped a size or two.
But the best feeling in the world is when you fit into that “poster dress”.
You ladies know what I mean ; it may be the dress you wore two ,maybe four years ago but haven’t been able to wear since you put on weight or for those who are a bit more ambitious like me , the dress you bought two sizes under for your birthday or other special occassion to give yourself that extra push.
My poster dress is a cute peach dress that I wore over 6 years ago to a Fresher’s Cocktail which has been hung in my room right by my mirror for a little over a year now. I almost fit into it for New Years Eve last year but then I got sidetracked. However, I’m determined to fit into that dress by my birthday, which is less than a month away)
Whatever your version of the poster dress or outfit is, you owe it to yourself to wear it again!
So as July begins let us all promise to put in that extra special effort to be poster dress ready by our deadlines ! And let’s crush those deadlines too !
Wish me luck and have a good day loves. xoxo
