This is how I looked last night.
I have to say, the theory is true. While I think we can all agree, looks are not everything, they are something. Even in my heaviest days, nearly a year ago, getting dressed up and putting effort into looking my best has played a huge role in my progress. It is just part of the whole idea of taking care of me. We take care of the things we value.
Hopefully you are taking care of you, today. If you haven't already--get off the couch, get a "good shower," put on your make-up and get put-together. Even if you are just working around the house or going to the store. You'll be glad you did.
PS--Anybody ever watch Top Model? In that first picture I think I might be "smiling with my eyes." What do you think?
