Weight loss update: I haven't lost any. In fact, I think I gained a pound since my post about this subject a few weeks ago. I'm not really trying...I dunno. I need to find some motivation somewhere. Perhaps it's in my closet?
See, this dress has always been a smidge small --- it's a size four when I'm usually a size six --- but it still miraculously, albeit barely, fits me.
Generally, I try to wear clothes that are comfortable, even if I weigh a bit more than I'd like. I don't think that squeezing into a too-tight clothes is good for your self-esteem. Geneen Roth has a great observation about this; she says that wearing clothes that are uncomfortably tight has a way of constantly making you feel inadequate in your body. This mentality isn't good for you.
Regardless, I put this dress on because it's cute. And it still zips. And it's good to be gently reminded occasionally of the spectacular collection of pretty things I own IN MY SIZE.
So, you know, I'd kind of like to stay that way.
