I am not oblivious to the fact that this a long journey. I am not interested in a quick fix, I am ready to sweat for it, slowly.
When I got dressed this morning , I put on my sensible panties, as my fiancé calls them. No lace, no butt wedgie, just full back, comfy cotton briefs. I looked in the mirror and thought… hmmm, that looks better.
That’s when it hit me.
My usual style might need a substitute while I get things back on track. I love my little lace thong nothings. Or I used to. For now, however, they aren’t helping my cause. My full back briefs are not only comfortable, they are flattering. They made me feel good, and that’s important. This doesn’t mean I think they can hide the work that needs to be done, but they give me my confidence back while I work away at it.
This change in my norm will also apply to my summer dresses I would often wear. They are making me feel bad, but not in a good way. So, I’ve started wearing more shorts and shirts. This suits my body type at the moment and I’m okay with that.
The dresses aren’t going anywhere, nor are my itty bitties, I will wear them again soon. For now though, it’s time to be sensible.
