This was another exact replica of an outfit I’d worn previously. This seems to be the norm today, I wear something I really like and then don’t have time for pictures, so I have to wear it again. First wear was to my friends pre-hen night (she’s having a hen weekend which I’m sadly not able to go to, but was doing a night in Edinburgh as well), and this second wear to return to our old neighbourhood to look at some furniture. If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen the beautiful mid century sideboard we chose, I love it so much! I’ll do some proper pictures soon! We then also went to see one of Dave’s old work mates with Milo. He somewhat blew his run of being absolutely good as gold in public, and saving the crying for the evenings, by whining solidly for two hours. But she was crazy about him anyway!
Also wanted to say thank you for the kind comments on my last post. I know I know I know I was just being silly. I have absolutely no expectation at this point to get my old figure back any time soon, or indeed ever. All I want to do is lose enough weight/cms to fit my old clothes again. My point was more that because I am trying to lose weight (not trying that hard, mind. But trying), it scews my whole perception of myself and I am much more critical. Usually I don’t even think about my body shape at all, and am perfectly happy. Not pretend, trying-to-convince-myself perfectly happy, but I actually just don’t worry about it. But because weight loss and my body shape is on my mind, even though I’m rationally still happy and not expecting too much, emotionally it’s putting me in a place where I am suddenly self-critical. So what I’m saying is that thinking about the way I look even in this light-touch way is bad for my mental health, and my guess is it will be for other people too. Does that make sense?
