I have lost 32 of my 50lbs gained during pregnancy. This means I only have 18 left to go, but my GAWD those 18 are the HARDEST to lose. I’ve lost those same 18lbs about 50 times in my life. But – I no longer look in the mirror and cry – so it’s progress. I’m also not repulsed by EVERY photo taken of me any more – so I thought I’d post this sweet one Stace emailed me. She took it of NikkiZ and I yesterday.
Of course, where I’m feeling more comfortable about my weight, I still haven’t gotten back into the habit of putting on makeup. I stopped wearing it in the summer because I was sweating it ALL OFF in my non-air-conditioned car every day and I haven’t really put much on since. The few times I’ve gotten gussied up with some makeup – I’ve forgotten I was wearing it and started doing something brilling like rubbing my eyes and spreading mascara and eye shadow all over my face. BAH.
But since I got back to work next week, I’d better get back in the habit of wearing it and OUT of the habit of rubbing my eyes all the time.
