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!
