You are what you wear?
All this week I was turning up at work in my jogging bottoms, T shirt and trainers- not a good look! With my 10 lbs weight gain my smart work wear does not feel comfortable. My waist adaptable joggers were heaven!
I felt different in my lounge wear at work. My confidence and my feeling of well being were at a significantly lower level. I felt like click ordering larger sizes of work wear. This would mean I was accepting being fat. I do not want to do this. So do I carry on with my joggers?
It was interesting to see other people reactions towards me in our small office block. I just felt like they did not see me as a person with confidence and ambition. The conversations were just not the same. It highlighted importance to dress appropriately for the occasion. It takes away so much hard work of winning over people! No wonder IFA’s I have met are so smartly dressed.
I am in conflict, I want to go on a massive cloths shopping spree, I want to look smarter and feel good. Should I wait till I have achieved my weight loss? If I go now and then lose the weight that would be a waste. This has been going on in my mind for a few years! Plus clothes on fat person like me – yuk!
I am fairly certain this dilemma is more common among women than men? How do you handle this (men and women)?
