And on the third day, she...continued on the road to success!
I briefly mentioned yesterday how I used to wear 'the grunge look'. So today I wanted to talk about the struggles of being a bigger size and trying to find clothes that fit. Now that there are more plus sized stores it's easier to find clothes that technically fit the body, but I find that because everyone who is larger carries their weight differently, whether it be all in the stomach, the hips, the boobs, or evenly dispersed, clothes don't look good. To me at least. For my body whenever I'm hunting for stylish clothes I tend to find clothes don't sit right, they are too big in some areas, to small in others, they just don't sit well.
Models used to annoy me. I used to say, "Ugh! Why don't they have plus sized models?!" But now that there are some, I find there are still limited body expectations. The plus sized models that I have seen have big butts, big boobs, thick thighs, relatively skinny arms, a flat tummy, and I don't know if this will make sense but, nice knees. They all have that perfect hourglass shape.
So the difficult thing when dealing with plus size clothing is because no matter how dressed up I am I am still frumpy. Which of course fits under the comfort category, the goal is to keep aiming for the looks category. To get there, that means that the clothing size has to go down.
The longer I concentrate on emotionally focused eating the more the smaller dress size is and therefor being in the 'Looks' category is actually achievable. So then the question is, how long is it going to take?
I have already started to feel looseness in my waistband on my pants and that's exciting!
However, this is not an overnight experience, this is a slow and steady wins the race experience. This is a lifestyle change and so the expectation is that I am dedicating a year to this program.
I anticipate that I will be, over this next year, moving myself from the comfort category to the looks category where I will stay.
I look forward to achieving this journey along side others, so join me! Join the emotionally focused eating program! Here is the link, http://www.thecounsellinghouse.ca/weight-loss-program-in-london-woodstock/
