Married Life, Weight Watchers, Friends and Stuff

Married Life, Weight Watchers, Friends and Stuff

It’s been a beautiful week in New Orleans, and I’m hope that this weather will continue through August. This is typically the worst hottest month of the year, but the first day was splendid. Window washers cleaned my windows last week too, so we’re enjoying the view from the sofa with the blinds open a lot right now. Michael and I have been adjusting to married life, and the last few weeks have been pretty great. We feel at home in our new church, and we’re finding our way into new living patterns – spending time together and giving each other space. I haven’t found a good groove with Weight Watchers yet, but I’m not giving up. My weight has not changed much at all since I got married. In some ways that feels like a win, but it’s disappointing too because I know I can do better. My weight just hasn’t been the focus, so I’m not going to beat myself up for something that I’m not making a priority. My clothing size is still changing though. A few months ago I was wearing 24’s in everything, and right now I’m much more comfortable wearing 20’s in most things. […]

My Arms Won’t Get Smaller Just Because I Cover Them Up

Last week I talked about my body image on social media because someone recently criticized the size of my arms as if I didn’t know how big they are. I know, and I’m okay with it. I’ve lost about 100 pounds over the last several months, but even if I had not lost a pound I’m still just as capable and deserving of wearing sleeveless clothes whenever I want to. My arms don’t make me the person that I am, but they’re part of me. And I’m okay with that. I avoided mirrors, refused to wear a top unless it covered my arms…but those days are long gone. Sure, there are things I’d like to change about myself, but I love myself. I accept myself, and there’s peace that comes with that. Now I rent dresses from GwynnieBee, which has helped me branch out in my style even though my size is changing. Sometimes I feel adorable without a cardigan, and sometimes I even feel elegant. I may not be pretty or perfect enough in the eyes of everyone, but my God adores everything about me. My future husband thinks I’m pretty wonderful too. That’s enough for me, and if […]
