Feeling feminine and attractive even with endo flare
Thursday, June 14, 2018
I'm not a girly girl, but I'm not a tomboy either. I like wearing a dress, makeup and heels when the occasion is right; but for the last few years with my increasing weight, stress and depression I've loved my yoga pants. I haven't felt very feminine or attractive,even when the occasion required me to dress up. I restarted this journey of exercising and eating right last month and had about 10 days where it just didn't go right. But I continue to fight for my health. Yesterday morning when I got off work I felt wonderful and got my exercise in before I went to bed (I work night shift). After exercising, when I was getting ready to shower I noticed the bloating in my abdomen had decreased. I tried on a pair of scrubs I had bought last year, now they fit but are still tight (hopefully, I can start wearing them to work if I lose about 10 more pounds.) I'm beginning to see the efforts of exercising and eating more veggies, less starches. My wedding anniversary is Monday, but because hubs is working Monday we'll celebrate Sunday. So Sunday, I'll happily don a dress, makeup and heels because I feel wonderfully feminine.
