Shopping for a dress

Hard to believe that the last time I bought a dress was last year.  And I bought it not only for Crystal’s birthday, but also for my grandfather’s funeral.  Knowing very well, that I would need something nice to wear.  Before that, I hadn’t bought a dress since 2005.  I was thinner then, and not so self conscious about my body.  After having Cayden, I just haven’t had the courage to buy dresses and wear them.  I know it’s terrible, but no matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to shake this weight.  Doctor’s are aware of it.  I’ve been told to try Weight Watchers again and have been given the clear to run again, so I am.  I’m also spending a lot of time in prayer, trying to just let it all go and let God.  It’s not always easy.
Being on the computer is something that I know has hindered in my journey, but lately, I don’t want to be on the computer, I want to be outside or reading a book.  I turn on the computer to edit photos or share them.  I’ve got to start working on school scrapbooks as the school year is quickly coming to a close and I’m nowhere near finished – yikes!
But I digress.  I’m working on the weight loss.  And yesterday, I went shopping with a close friend who brought me two dresses to try on.  And I loved both of them and now have two Spring dresses in my closet.  Of course, I hope they don’t fit next year and I am buying smaller sizes, but until then, here’s to feeling good about myself.
