Not only did I notice that I gained a lot of weight, my favourite Hell Bunny skirt (featured here many times before) no longer fit me. Once I finally admit that I actually gained weight, I stepped on the scale and my worst fears were confirmed. I sadly put my little skirt in the back of my closet and after sulking, I was determined to turn my life around.
After I recently discovered that I lost 10.5 pounds, I decided to give my skirt another go and lo and behold! It fits! The damned thing fits!
Due to the cooler temperatures (FINALLY) I decided to add my cute little Hell Bunny cardigan to the mix. I purchased this cute little cardigan a couple of months ago during a heatwave (yeah, I do shit like that. Go me!) and I was anxious to wear it!
I still have about another 40 pounds to lose but each milestone deserves celebrating. It is not the ultra goth look I was going for but I know that would be frowned upon at the office so I am just happy that I can actually wear this stuff to work! Yes, I wore this outfit to work and no one said anything. Well, a coworker who has been out of the office for a few weeks said something but it was because she noticed the weight loss ! I am one lucky, lucky girl! Just like my weight loss, being able to wear alternative clothing to work is not easy. I did not do this overnight. It took years to build up that level of acceptance and now coworkers all think I am cute. They smile when they see that I added a little bit of me into my job (whether it is in my clothes or the Halloween stickers I use to decorate my notebook with) Life is too short and I don't want to be boring.
