I have been on a self-love mission here lately. I have gained some weight and been very hard on myself and not being very positive to by body lately. I have never had such body image issues until now. Don't get me wrong, I have had my fair share of body image issues like any other woman but at the end of the day I always knew I was still cute and looked good. When I get to a point where I barely even recognize myself and the negative self-talk is at an all time high something needs to be done. ASAP.
On thing is for sure, body image can affect so many aspects of your life. I have found myself not feeling comfortable enough to go to events, get dressed up, go shopping like I used to or even date for real. I decided to take some time to focus on me and my happiness. I hired a trainer, have been eating much healthier, been more active socially and doing the things I love more often. I let myself get into a funk about my weight but then realized that is the one factor of my life that I control completely.....so take control damn it! I have lost about 5 pounds so far with about 25 to go but I must say I feel great. Good enough to post these pics today. Taking these pics was one step closer to Loving My Shape!
I wanted to put together a sexy look perfect for V-day but in my current state the proper undergarments are critical. I have been loving the Ginger Body Shaping Thong Bodysuit from d/Mondaine. d/Mondaine is Luxury Shapewear Lingerie for the modern woman. They have many gorgeous pieces to help you stay sucked in and sexy at the same time. When I say this thing is amaze balls, I do mean amaze balls! It is built with ResultWear Technology that lifts, shapes, and enhances in all the right places while smoothing out problem areas. This thing is perfect under a business suit or bodycon dress, can be worn with a bra or without and sucks in everything that needs to be kept right and tight.
My only complaint is it is a little long for my torso. I am wearing a Large in these photos and at my current weight I don't think I would have been comfortable with anything smaller but perhaps a small would not be so long. It still held me in nicely but if you were about 5'6" or taller it would be perfect for you. You can check out more products by d/Mondaine HERE!
