I am having very bad hormonal issues since last week : pimples, fatigue, depression, and cravings. Because of that, I gained more weight.. putting me back to the weight I had when I started to join the Chubby Girls Get Skinny (CGGS) Project. Click here to join our private group in Facebook. It is a fun group led by Beth and together joined by Brie and I. We are not a perfect group who will mandate everyone to lose weight immediately. It is more on a support group to help each other lose weight gradually and in a healthy and happy way.
Just like this photo of my attempt in having a blogger shot. Me and my husband always wonder why I cannot make a “blogger” pose.. and so to my attempt to make one, we laughed when we saw the outcome.
As a person, we tend to be imperfect and last week, I learned to embrace my imperfection even more. I can’t accept the fact that I have my old weight back again and I want to push myself harder to lose weight.. but for some reason.. my efforts failed. 😯
Weight : 171.1 Lbs
So I was like, “What can I wear now?” I tried A LOT and they all didn’t fit well. Then I thought of trying this playsuit. To my surprise, it looked great. Much better than what I expected.
With Aldo’s black high-heeled shoes, my legs looked longer and slimmer. With the perfect posture, angle and pose, it became easy to look sexy though the scale says otherwise. I began to realize that even though I know that the scale is my instrument in telling me if I did a great job or not.. it CANNOT or SHOULD NOT stop me from being happy and looking great on that day. I had the opportunity to feel down and low, but I chose to be happier and just enjoy the rest of the day.
At first, I wore my Aldo shoes, but after walking for hours in the Grand Canal Mall, I started to wear my Melissa flats.
Which look do you prefer? With flats or heels? You may wonder why I had to change shoes. It’s because my fibromyalgia attacked again. It got even worse. Right now, I can’t walk well. Too much stress and a lot of attempts to lose weight took toll on me. 😢
Lesson Learned : There’s no harm in trying and giving your best. Just don’t forget that your priority is what benefits you “the most” and not what benefits you “the quickest.”
With the right clothes, perfect mixture of eyeshadow colors and a chiseled face, the “bigger” weight of the week can now be concealed easily. Thanks to makeup and fashion! No need to feel sad when in “gain mode.”
This week has been one of the most stressful weeks ever. Let me share with you the verse that changed my outlook in life last week.
Proverbs 14:30 – A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.
