I am overweight, labeled obese by the BMI scale. I have been most of my life and I had come to terms with being fat for the rest of my life. Recently, a medical diagnosis for my mom forced me to change my thinking. We decided to start Weight Watchers. I did WW two years ago and lost 25 lbs in 2 months so I am excited to see what happens this go-round, considering I have a support system in place with my mom and daughter doing it too. The first week I lost 6 lbs, I am a long way from my goal but I am doing this for me. Not because society says I'm fat, not because my boyfriend thinks I'm unattractive due to the extra weight (he doesn't by the way), but I am doing this because I want to. I want to be able to buy the cute clothes I see, go out and not feel self-conscious about my weight, or worry what people think of me. I want to be healthy and slender. I'll never be a size 4 but I would settle for a size 12. I want to be happy with who I am and not just resigned to it.
At least in Second Life, I can look the way I feel in RL. I love being able to find beautiful clothes and share them with my readers. Today, I have a brand new dress from ChicModa. This is ChicModa's debut round of Uber and she did a fabulous job. This dress is fit for Maitreya and Hourglass only and is available in 12 colors/patterns. There are build in panties and each color includes a HUD to change the lace, ties, and panties. This dress is sexy and sweet at the same time and exactly how I want to feel after my WW journey.
I paired this dress up with a pair of fantastic shoes from Essenz available at Kinky Event. These shoes come in 26 colors built into mini packs or fatpack including all colors. They are fit for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. Each pack includes a HUD with metal and sole options.
This backdrop and pose set are an older offering from Foxcity but they worked perfectly for what I envisioned. This pose set includes 7 poses plus mirrors in the fatpack, individually there are only 6 poses. The backdrop does have the chair but if you buy the fatpack of poses you can rez out the chair with all the poses built-in plus it has a color change options.

You only have a few more days to get to Hair Fair 2019 and grab this beautiful creation from Tram. This hair includes two braids falling from the middle down the sides. It's available in 3 color packs or a fatpack. This hair has a resize option built-in to the HUD.
I wanted a new skin from Pink Fuel for my Lelutka head. I headed to the store and on my current limited budget, I decided to play the gacha machine she had. This gacha skin includes 15 commons and 1 rare. This skin comes in 3 tones only but it's so pretty. The shape is made for Lelutka Simone which I do not have so I created my own shape for this blog. I think I did pretty good on this one. Shown on Lelutka Aida.
