It’s that time of year when everyone is talking about them…their New Year’s Resolutions. For me this year it is not about a resolution, it is about a solution. November 5, 2014 I had a prophylactic oophorectomy to eliminate my heightened ovarian cancer risk, due to being BRCA 2+. Since then weight has been an uphill battle. Menopause…I imagine everyone in their late ‘40’s, early 50’s talks about it…but no one does at 40. Well, I am because it has turned my world upside down. Weight has become my archenemy once again, as it was when I had undiagnosed hypothyroidism and couldn’t shed my 60 lb pregnancy weight gain. So, enough woe is me, let’s get to it…my goals.
To get ME back…to uncover that sexy figure that is beneath all of this blubber. To go back to my skinny jeans, instead of barely buttoning my once medium-sized jeans. Why? Because I deserve to be happy with the way I look and feel again. I deserve to want to walk naked around my house, to look forward to getting dressed because everything in my closet fits, instead of just 1/3 of what’s in there, because my health depends on it. My future depends on it.
The gear that will get me there? Zazye…why? Because it’s compression fabrics hold me in, shape me, comfort me during this time when my other clothes don’t. The colors and patterns make me smile; make me feel good about me.
The girl? ME. I want to feel good about me again. I want my strength and my sexiness to be what stands out in the crowd, not just my smile. Who’s with me? Who wants to make this year about ME?
