The Ultimate Revenge
Does it make me crazy if I have revenge on a dress?
Last May my mom and sister and I went shopping and I saw a dress at JCPenney's that I fell in love with. It was so pretty on the dummy! I tried it on (size 14 or 16 I think) and... definitely not the same. It made me cry because I felt so unattractive and fat and unhappy with my body. I had already decided to start PB in June but that was a real kick in the rear!
Today I went to JCP and on the clearance rack, I saw exactly one of that same dress. The only size they had was 6, which is not what I'm wearing right now (more like 10-12), but I decided to try it on just to prove to that stupid dress that I can look good in it, dangit. It was a personal vendetta at this point. Well I tried it on and not only did it look much better but I actually decided to purchase it for my honeymoon in FL in February! I am so thrilled that a dress that formerly made me cry because it looked so horrible is now just as pretty and romantic as I wanted it to be. Even better? It was $45 and I got it for $8
Somehow this success was more meaningful to me than the 20 lbs I've lost.
Started PB on Monday, June 4. I'm focusing on my health in 2012, including taking natural supplements, zumba and strength training, regular church attendance and studying the Bible, spending time with good friends, and reading more. I want to see what health milestones I can achieve this year!
