Don't run before you can walk.
Pride comes before a fall.
Look before you...
...take an armful of 'next size down' clothes into a changing room and get something STUCK in that 'no woman's zone' half way between the bust and the shoulders.
Pull down? Wriggle, wriggle. Tug up! Wriggle wriggle. Blush and Hot Flash! Wriggle, wriggle.
Pause.. think calmly...Do I want to call for help with my jeans round my ankles because I couldn't be bothered to take my boots off to try a dress on?
Why am I wearing bright pink knicks with a beige bra?
Do I want them to talk about the size-delusional woman with the ill matching underpants in changing room 3....
'Pink at her age?' and no sense of how FAT she is???
Wriggle, wriggle, wriggle, WRIGGLE.
Clearly I escaped because I'm writing this now, but I almost wept when I got back to the car. Mostly self pity. Hurt pride, Bruised vanity... Pulled shoulder muscles....
Anyway - Pick up again. Work hard. Eat sensibly. Keep a sense of perspective.
Start again today and count my blessings.
