Well, I have decided that in 6 months, when we attend our friend's wedding in Rome, I am going to wear a short dress!
Oh my god! This may seem really silly to you guys, but it is a huge step for me. I hide underneath long pants all year long - yes, even in Exmouth where it is always hot! You see, I store fat on my ankles and am very embarrassed, so I hide them under long clothing. It doesn't help that I also store fluid there but am hoping that with the 3 litres of water I am drinking each day, the fluid retention might improve.
I have not worn anything short for 7 or 8 years now because I am so self-conscious. I have had so called friends tell me I have 'cankles' - they then informed me that cankles are when the calf skips the ankle and joins straight to the foot instead. I didn't find the humour in this - it only made me feel worse.
Anyway, I aim to lose 23kg by their June wedding and I also aim to wear a really pretty, feminine, knee-length dress for the occasion.
I'm very excited about this so wish me luck.
LOOK OUT ROME - HERE I COME!!!
