 For starters; Between May and September last year I lost 15 kilo's. Since September I've gained 5 back. So no, in the last couple of months I have not lost weight. As a matter of fact, I've gained! Yet, especially the last couple of months, I've been asked if I'd lost weight more often than in the months that I was actually losing weight. You can imagine both my surprise and my amusement and, scientist/psychologist that I am, I wanted to figure out why.

Except for weight, I've gained some other things though. Mainly a bucket load of self-confidence. Ever since I started my internship two months ago, I've been feeling a lot better about myself and the world at large. I feel better about my ability to make it in the world, to realize my ambitions and dreams and just generally to make it in the big scary 'adult world'. This 'feeling good about yourself' thing seems to have spilled over into other areas of my life as well and I think in general you could say I just feel a lot better at home in my own skin.

And it shows. I stand up straight, hold my head up high and my shoulders righted because I Am Good. I Am (as a matter if fact) Awesome. And Screw You if you don't agree. This has nothing to do with weight whatsoever. Had I not lost those 15 (now 10) kilos I'm sure the same thing would have applied... And people would still be asking me if I lost weight.

Isn't it funny how a change in one's own attitude will change how others perceive them?

I guess negative attitudes weigh a lot. ;-)

*HUGS YOU!* - You feel good ... others will see it.

There's no better feeling than feeling good about being in your own skin. Hang on to that dear and never lose sight of it.

You go girl! Keep on rocking! (I saw your pic post and OMG you look wonderful!) So pretty and I LOVELOVELOVE those shoes in the first pic!

Thanks sweety. The thing is, it's a spiral-y thing. If you feel good, others notice, compliment you and want to be/dance/belong with you hence making you feel better. If you feel bad/insecure however, people also notice and don't bother, pity or even avoid you. Noone wants to belong with the grumpy little girl that tries to hide... And of course you notice and feel even worse. Breaking the downwards spiral is the trick, I thing.

It took a lot of work and a lot of trying, but it feels like I've definitely gotten firmly into an upwards spiral lately, moreso than I can ever remember being. It's a happy thing and sometimes still very frail, but it's also an encouraging thought.

Reading this was such a great help. Anti aging skin products is such a complicated thing and this article explained it well. Many thanks to this new information.
