…and what have I achieved, wedding-wise?
Well, here’s a list:
Bridal outfits and makeup? Check! Materials for my outfits acquired and sent to the tailor; bridal makeup artist booked. No
drop dead gorgeous bride, no wedding!
Ensnared and groomed him for the role close to 10 years ago hahahah! Again, no drop dead handsome groom, no wedding!
Marriage preparatory course? Check! Booked on 11 December 2012, will attend this February! Repeat with me people; no certificate, no wedding!
Venue? Check! First item booked after we fixed the date. No guests, no wedding!
But I’ll still be married so who cares? There’s a place to hold the wedding, a place for guests to come!
Food? No check! Well, the guests can leave to fill their own tummies elsewhere after the wedding.
Well, WHAT??? Less than 11 months to the wedding and no caterer booked?!?!?
I can fit back into my very first pair of Levi’s jeans! If I’m not wrong it was a size 25 or 26 when I bought it like close to 10 years ago, but with wear it has of course expanded along with me, though not by much. Just some months back I had to squeeeeeze myself into it, practically forcing my thighs through, and get this! I couldn’t zip it up because my tummy was too big! But I wore it anyway, with a loose top; it’s practically stuck on my thighs there’s no way it would slip down on its own despite being unzipped. (Yes, it had to be taken off the same way it was put on – with a squeeeeeze through.) And now, NOW, it practically glides over my thighs and I can zip it up with no problem! Altogether now, let’s gelek-gelek Zumba!
I’m also happy to report that I can now wear the denim knee-length dress I bought online some time back. It has an hourglass silhouette and so it’s pretty nipped in at the waist, with smocking at the back. I have never worn it because it was too tight. But now, NOW – yes you guessed it – I can fit into it, and I have worn it to work yesterday since it’s casual Friday!
So there you go! I’m gladly embracing and enjoying this new body, even if it could have actually been achieved as a result of a symptom of my then undiagnosed condition. 🙂
