Looking Good & Feeling Good

I stopped eating desserts at the beginning of September and have managed to avoid them (with the exception of Christmas Day which was OUT OF CONTROL) since then. I have lost and kept off 15 pounds (at last check), and, more importantly, I feel SO MUCH BETTER. I had no idea how much sugar I was putting into my body. Good grief! Now when I have a coffee or iced tea with a real sugar or a glass of wine, I start to feel the sugar rush right away, and I notice a marked difference in my behavior. SPAZ! I don't like it nearly as much as I used to. Caffeine is good; sugar is decidedly not.

The other upside to the weight loss (besides feeling better) is being able to access a portion of my wardrobe that I haven't been able to wear in quite a while. Today, I was able to wear my kicking BR black flared skirt (much like the one Trinny is wearing here.) I haven't been able to wear this skirt and have it look nice in a couple of years. I wasn't sure that it was going to fit, but I tried it on on the off chance that it would,and it did. HOORAY!! And it looks kicking with my stretchy high heeled boots and teal long sleeve, cowl neck tee. Knowing that I look good in what I am wearing has a really positive effect on my overall disposition - I am much more upbeat today than the weather would normally have me be.
