At Least I Have A Pretty Face (I Hope)

Good afternoon all my bloggy peeps!! It's snowing here on Long Island but unfortunately my daughter wouldn't cooperate so no super cool snow photographs. Boo! Anyways, today I have a gripe. A gripe with all those perfect, pretty, petite fashion bloggers. I hate you and all your perfect fashion photographs. Okay, no I really don't, I'm just jealous. 

I used to be really skinny, okay never like twig skinny but like a size 4/6 and then it all went down hill about 4 years ago. I lost my best friend and found comfort in food, then I had a back injury (so exercise was out of the question for a while), then I got prego and then had the baby and never really lost the weight. I know all of those are no excuses but life happened and now I am so not happy with my weight. I try to lose weight and lose 10 pounds here and there, on and off but I need to lose like 50lbs.

I used to be so trendy and everyone always loved what I wore. Now my idea of getting dressed is yoga pants and a tshirt or sweatshirt and sometimes when I am feeling really crazy I put jeans on. Thing is, I still love fashion and have fab ideas but unfortunately I am not the appropriate size to to pull off these outfits. This really depresses me. I keep saying once I lose the weight I will get cute clothing again but it's not happening, at least not quickly.

I think about going to Torrid and some other cute plus size stores and buying stuff but I feel like that means I am giving up on losing weight. But I don't know how much longer I go on feeling like I look like a sloth. Plus, I am working on fully developing my jewelry designs and it would be nice to be able to be the face of my own brand. 

Such a daily struggle especially because I know what it feels like to be thin, stylish and envied but now I'm just the girl "who has a pretty face." F you! Why can't I just be pretty!

  1. You are beautiful!! And your body is as beautiful as you believe it to be. I know it feels like a big waste of money and I'd probably feel the same about not wanting to buy clothes that I'm hoping will be too big at some point. I've heard it said that you have to accept yourself as is before you will have success moving forward. Easier said then done I know. I work on it constantly! Best of luck with weight loss. I know it's really hard.

  2. You ARE pretty! Healthy comes in all shapes and sizes. A pretty "face" is a dime a dozen in this world. A pretty PERSON is a whole different ball game! :)
