If you are here for a photography post- this ain’t one, so you can bounce now!
Everyone- well maybe not everyone- has The Jacket, The Dress or The Jeans. The Jacket they buy- a little too snug, a little like two sizes smaller than your actual size. When you buy it you say: “I am totally going to lose the weight.. this jacket will be my motivation.” It’s shameful for me to admit that I bought this jacket about two years ago for $135 and I haven’t worn it. I would take it out sometimes and try it zip is up and oh, it was still too tight. Well now I want to wear it. No, really I am determined to. My weight issues started in high school. I have always felt chubby but now I feel chubby-fat. My cheeks, my soccer thighs, ugh I can go on. It really can put a damper on my day and impede me from going places and seeing people- cause I have nothing to wear and I just don’t want them to see me like this. Sadly it has also kept me from in FRONT of the camera. I have few very few pictures of me this year. An now I just WISH I had those moments recorded. Here is a very touching blog post by Deb Schwedhelm on why YOU shouldn’t let the your weight stop you from having your pictures taken: http://www.debsphotographs.com/photoblog/2010/05/is-there-a-perfect-time/
Anyways thank goodness it’s winter, right?! I have been living in jackets, sweaters- whatever just to hide these extra pounds. I don’t want to hide anymore. I am done. I started my diet on Monday with scrambled white eggs and since I have enjoyed salads, water and green tea. Honestly I just want to put this in writing for myself. I want to make myself accountable. I know some of us have made this our New Year’s resolution- so BEST of LUCK!! I will keep you updated on my progress- thanks for reading.
My jacket- it just screams EMILY- I love anything with the diamond pattern like that.
