My Weight Loss Progress

What I Hate About Being Fat--I need a makeover!

An attitude makeover, that is. One thing I hate about being fat is that it's hard to care about clothes or makeup when all I can see in the mirror is how fat I look. I see overweight women who really make the most of their assets, even wearing funky shoes and spiky heels, but most of us are like me. Just looking rundown and dumpy. Probably because we feel that way. Of course, there are skinny women who look that way too. It is probably a reflection of low self-esteem.

I've never worn much makeup anyway, but I really need a new haircut and a better lipcolor. Sigh.


  1. Tina e-mailed me this:
    You said you want to get a new haircut. I think that would be great because it helps you feel good about you! I am so proud of you and what you are doing! Keep up the good work. I know it is hard to do. Every thing you can do now to keep up your self esteem will help you keep the pounds off and help you feel better so you will have the strength to keep working so hard to get to the shape and health you want to be in. A lot of the time I think, "Can I afford to do this?" A lot of the time I answer myself by telling me that I can't afford to do it or I can wait. Then there are the times that I weigh the actual money cost and the emotional and other value cost and I can't afford to not do it. Helping you feel good about your appearance now is in that category. You can't afford to not do it.
    Remember that you are great! I love you and wish that I were closer!

  2. Maybe I should throw a Mary Kay party again! I need to get my whole skincare line-up again anyway, and maybe we can find you a fabulous lip color!
    It's been hard lately, with my lack of energy, but the days I do my make-up I feel way better about myself! All I really need is my foundation, a little lip-gloss, and some mascara and I feel prettier and more productive!

  3. I fight that a lot...comparing my weight/body shape to others. I tell myself to be happy with who I am and not miserable about who I am not. Easier said than done at times!
