I wanted to share a blog with you all this afternoon about my mental issues and my weight loss.
I know quite a few people that would benefit from this blog post so I decided to share my thoughts and experiences surrounding the Mental affects of loosing weight and how I’ve been dealing with it.
I hope whoever reads my blog will find it helpful.
Isn’t it just fabulous when you loose weight.
In just over seven months I’ve managed to loose three and a half stone on the exante diet.
I couldn’t be any happier I’ve actually achieved something and most importantly have actually stuck to a diet by the third week I’ve normally given up but no I was determined to do it so I have.
I’ve had the odd blip along the way but that’s normally when I’m under stress and I have to say won’t give my Sunday dinners or the odd gin up for no one that’s my weekly treat.
One thing I’ve had issues with is clothes and my mental health.
I haven’t had a problem purchasing clothes at times I’ve thought oh lord somebody take my bank card off me.
But what I’ve have had issues with is the mental side of loosing weight.
My whole style has changed because I no longer feel that I need to cover up every part of my body.
Or look in the mirror and hate the way I see myself.
One of the issues I’ve had is when I’ve been shopping online I’ve been automatically looking at my original pre weightloss size it happens everytime I still forget even now.
It’s so nice to to say I can’t purchase that as its not in a plus size range.
Not that I’m being biased about other ranges.
But after so long of liking clothing that I would feel silly in due to my size.
I can now shop anywhere and know I will find something I will like in my new size and feel amazing in the style and colours of my choice.
Instead of looking like a member of the adams family.
Now I don’t have to feel that way any more but again your mind can have a negative impact on your desired outcome if you let it.
I popped out today to a bit of essential and non essential shopping.
Its been a while since I’ve set foot in a proper clothing store other than primark.
So I decided to go into newlook my local store in town hasn’t got a plus size range but I’ve always gone for the biggest size they stock.
Looking through the clothing racks not touching anything was hard expecially when you’re trying to work out sizes.
But needs must my brain was saying to me you need biggest size they have.
I actually stood their for a while thinking what the hell am I doing I don’t need the biggest size anymore.
Put my normal size back and picked up my new clothing size.
I’m not sure if I will get used to being a small size its been a very long time since I’ve been in a smaller size.
I cannot express how emotional I am to be able to get my whole bottom half of Me in a size 14 trousers from a store like new look and know I’ve achieved that outcome from my own determination.
Normally i wouldn’t of been able to get my ankles in a size 14 never mind my whole bottom half of my body.
It’s so difficult to train your own mind after years of negative thoughts about your own body.
It’s affected me both mentally and physically and its also affected my relationships with past partners.
Really knocked my confidence.
But In time I hope I can change my shopping mindset still i can’t believe I’m a completely different person and with the transformation still ongoing I just suppose it will take some getting used to and a whole lot of Selflove.
Today’s purchase #newlook
Love to you all.
