I went shopping today, for a new dress. But not just any new dress. I was buying a cocktail dress for a formal Hollywood Awards Show I’m attending this weekend. (The PGA Awards) Yes, I’m going to be hobnobbing with some of the Hollywood glitterati. And I’m going to do it in a hot new dress that looks like the one pictured above.
As I was tooling around the mall today, and soliciting help from all of the sales associates I could find, I realized that this whole thing is pretty cool. And I realized that releasing myself from the fantasy of a life as a skinny woman, allowed me to live some pretty fantastic moments in the real world.
After all, if I had decided to put everything on hold until after I lost weight, I might still be counting my carrot sticks and pedaling to nowhere on the stationary bike. By living my life full and full-figured right now, I get to get duded up in some fancy new clothes and rub elbows with the richer and famouser.
All in all, I’d say it was a pretty good choice.
So I’d recommend you stop waiting, and start living. At the very least, the wardrobe is awesome!
