Feeling Insecure and Fat Pants

phoneFat pants. Ugh. Lately, I just feel yucky.

I wish that I was slimmer, but it will take time. I’m still recovering from an injury to my ankle. My solution to feeling “yucky” is to try and look my best when I leave the house. I have some flattering pants and tops. Nothing too exciting, but it’s better than nothing. I would like to dress cuter, but nothing fits right now. My hope is that with more exercise and better eating habits I can fit into more clothes this fall.

I feel like I am too self-conscious about this issue. There are lots of folks who have a few extra lbs.
I have to find a way to make peace with who I am at whatever weight I am at. Easier said than done.

So here are some of the things that I am doing to feel better:

1. I do my hair nicely every day.

2. I give myself manicures and pedicures.

3. I wear comfortable, flattering clothes.

4. I read positive, uplifting blogs about self-esteem.

    I can totally relate to ankle and joint pain. I was trapped inside all weekend. . .
    it does force us to be productive, however.

    when are you going to come visit Portland again?

    Kea had TWO babies!
