A New Dress
Monday, January 19, 2009
Okay, this is going to sound silly, but I’m so excited— I got a new dress!
Now for most people, this may not be a big deal, but for me, it’s unbelievable! I haven’t worn a dress for 20 years, with the exception of my wedding dress. My figure has never been one to fit easily in a dress. I have always been bigger on the bottom than the top. As a result, every time I would try on a dress, I couldn’t get it past my hips, and if I could, it would be huge on top. Finally I just gave up on wearing dresses.
Well, every year, my club at school (I teach 11th grade English) puts on the winter formal dance. I have always wanted to wear a dress, but I have always worn a two-piece outfit. Well this year, I decided to look for a dress. Ironically, when I was trying them on, I found that everything fit me on the bottom and some were a little tight on top. My body has really changed since I started using the treadmill everyday.
As you can see, I found my dress, and it is so adorable! My husband has already assured me I will be the most beautiful girl at the dance. For once, I am actually excited about what I am going to wear, and that is just one of the many blessings I have received since I joined SP. Don’t give up ladies, your dream outfit could be waiting for you too!
