Being an image consultant is no longer the distant nut of an idea it once was. Instead, I've put things into motion, begun working with clients and starting the website rolling... of course, just having bought a new house means my attention is divided, but it's not really all that different. I've been considering the house as another one of my projects, just a very very big one.
Unfortunately, while I've spent all this time looking at paint colors, wishing for a higher credit card limit and more of a furniture budget, helping buy clothes for friends, purchasing new mascara, etc., I've forgotten to pay attention to.... drum roll.... my waistline!
So, for the first time in a couple years, my weight is starting to become a real issue. Despite sweating it out at the gym several times a week, I've found that almost all of my clothing is too tight and some garments just won't fit any more, no matter how hard I pull! Oh, the tragedy of having a closet full of lovely clothes and only being able to wear the larger, uglier items! I suppose I should feel lucky that my boots still zip up and that earrings are one-size-fits-all, but the extra calories burned by walking around with extra pounds clearly never actually burns enough calories to make you lose weight... if you get my drift.
Well, it's back to the weight watchers website for me... tail between my legs. Because I can certainly dole out the weight loss advice and I definitely see where I've gone wrong, but dieting is just SO EXHAUSTING and all I really want to do is sit in front of the fire with a glass of wine or seven and a lovely selection of French cheeses, perhaps a pate and a foie gras... you know, gorgeous things! Alas, that's what got me to this point in the first place, so... don't expect to see me out on the town any time soon. I'm surprised there's a town left, any way, after I've eaten my way through it!
