As you may already know I am currently on a Slimming World journey in a bid to lose five stone, I have so far managed to lose just over three stone. I hit the three stone loss a while back now and have comfortably sat at this loss now for the past few months. Lately I’ve been wanting to push myself to lose the other two stone and start feeling good about myself.
I am due to attend an awards evening, this is a carer’s awards night for work. It is a Champagne four course dinner, with a formal dress code…..yikes!
I am not really a dress wearing person, due to my previous size before my slimming world journey I’d often be found in baggy trousers with a big baggy cardigan for comfort, all of which will be dark colours.
I have recently been on panic overdrive about what to wear to the awards night. I looked online at different outfits and saw this dress that I fell in love with straight away and knew that it was the dress for me. With the dress ordered – I ordered a size smaller than previously bought in the past, I done this in a bid to help keep me motivated and on track.
Due to my previous size, dresses never seemed to hang right on me, I like dresses that give you a shape and feel comfortable to wear. Unfortunately in the past this hasn’t happened. Since losing three stone my confidence has started to shine through and I now feel like I want to try different styles and actually go out in nice bright colours cardigan free.
The dress has been ordered – And has arrived……Yikes!
The table is booked, time and place to meet with colleagues is sorted…….Double yikes!
Now to find a nice bag, shoes and some accessories to go with my outfit – No backing out now.
I am really looking forward to the awards night but for me this is a BIG step out of my comfort zone. This will hopefully be a big step to a new me – One that is also back on plan and ready to lose the rest of the weight I so desperately want to shift.
