I’m really, really wanting to dress up in a simple vintage style for a 1940’s event this year as I’ve never done that before. I have my eye on the event I attend every year, the “On the Home-Front Weekend” at Rufford Abbey but there is one problem… despite my concerted efforts at weight loss and buying the biggest dress I could in a style I liked, my dress STILL DOESN’T FIT!!!
Well it does fit, if a breathe in but being the big girl I am, bending or twisting would probably mean a broken zipper and an embarrassing mountain of flesh spilling out.
BUT HELL I REALLY REALLY WANT TO WEAR MY DRESS!
I’ve even bought those huge black hold it all in knickers for apple shapes (but let me tell you that even those don’t even give me a hint of a waist). They are selling in Sainsbury’s for £8, my determination has no boundaries. I will try anything (except not eat food!).
I’m trying on my dress every other day at the moment, just to see if there is hope on the horizon.
I’ve been looking back on last years photos, at the mostly much slimmer ladies looking beautiful and wishing I’d knuckled down much, much sooner.
Moan over, if that’s all I’ve got to moan about in my life (which I can totally resolve with willpower and determination) then I am counting myself a very lucky lady.
BUT I REALLY REALLY DO WANT TO GET INTO MY DRESS!!!!
