One Day At a time- My Daily Venting

8-13-18

Working on knowing my worth. It’s be a rough four year break over in my neck of the woods. Mostly because I didn’t think my voice was an important one, I was too scared of not really mattering in the grand scheme of things. So I missed out on all the fun, all the fashion and the joy I get from interacting with people in the amazing Plus size community! I was so wrong to give up what I loved from what I thought was a “safe bet”.

I still have my day job, don’t get me wrong but I’ve finally come to the realization that I have lots to offer the wider world, amazing skills, ideas and creative projects brimming up. I just didn’t believe in them enough before, I didn’t have the courage to dream up a world where I and they mattered. I was afraid of looking “silly”, well you know what? If one single woman/girl feels better because of something I write, or something they see on CGINTW than I’ve done my life’s work. I experience such great joy when I can bring you something of value. I hope to do that every week and I’m not going to let anyone stand in my way anymore. Not even me.

Later Lovelies!

Overcoming the "I'm too fat for this."

I have not been posting lately due to many reasons, I'm back in school, I'm working full time again and I've been stuck in a depressive cycle in which I overeat, condemn myself for being a glutton tell myself I'll never amount to anything and then overeat again to make myself feel better. Wow, that sound really crazy when I say it like that. But so many women I know have told me the go through exactly the same thing. We lie awake at night thinking about all the terrible things we did to our bodies that day. I had McDonalds and Taco Bell all in the same day; word to the wise don't do this.

Tomorrow I have to go out networking, normally this is a chance for me to increase our connections or strengthen ones we already have and hopefully broker us more deals in the process but really it's about relationship building and frankly I've been pretty terrible at it lately. Why has my performance decreased so drastically? Because I don't think I deserve to be ther…

Becoming a Fashion Grown up-Chubby Girl In the World Style

Ok, I'll admit it I'm getting old, on Dec. 7th of this year I will be 29! (Silent freak out). What's worse is I'm now a grown up with an early not mid-twenties closet. I feel like I've outgrown the major retailers and need to move on, I'm ready for a more mature fashion relationship but I have fashion issues.
 My key fashion issues:

Short leg, longer torsoBottom heavy in all the wrong placeswhat I call "marshmallow syndrome"- If clothes are too tight, it looks like I'm a sausage, if too loose they not shape at all. So does any of this sound familiar? Here's the advice that has actually worked for me over the years and if I had unlimited funds this is the wardrobe I would create, I' a size 28 which is considered "super sized" so for the sake of argument I'll include designers that stop at size 26 but note them with an asterisk*. Nothing is worse than reading a that one page of Marie Claire dedicated to Plus fashion and realizin…
