I’ve gained 7 pounds and I feel….sexy? is that possible? Could I actually feel more attractive with seven MORE pounds?
Yes, I was really comfortable seven pounds ago –lean & healthy– I could slither into my favorite jeans even after they’d been tossing in the dryer for way too long. I thought I looked great.
But here I am, 7 pounds heavier and feeling fine. And just a little hot.
If you’re anything like me, you rarely feel sexy. Somehow, weight-watching took away my zesty gene. There wasn’t much room (no room) for hips, thighs or boobs.
Now, look at me. I’m looking kind of round. My bra’s a bit too tight. There’s a little belly pooching out against my pants (I didn’t wear jeans – they’re not that comfortable today!)
So, I’m bopping around work. Look at me! Don’t I look like a real woman?! Woo hoo.
This is wild AND wildly wonderful. I feel grrrrreat.
And I’m not restricting or thinking of restricting. In fact, I’m letting myself be. That feels grrrreat too.
I have been weighing myself (obviously, as I know I’ve gained 7 pounds), but what if I stop? Does it really matter what I weigh? Uhm, there’s an interesting question…
The fact is, the chances are, I’m not going to gain the zillion pounds I’ve always feared. I eat healthfully and moderately with little treats.
Wow, I almost sound like a normal person. Uhm, did I say that?
