7 weeks on...

Well its been 7 weeks, and what a relief to no longer have to wear the gurdle, summer is here and I dont think I would have coped in it day and night on those hot summer days....

The swelling seems to have gone down now and I have lost 1 size in clothing, so I am now fitting comfortably into a size 16. My scars are healing well, there is no tenderness at all and I am still completely thrilled with the outcome.

My biggest challenge this summer is to let myself relax about my arms, all the dresses out at the moment are sleeveless and Im having some issues feeling comfortable about that. I also have a party to go to that I need to wear a cocktail dress ( something I have NEVER done before) Ive always avoided them or made up and excuse as to why we couldnt go cause I was too embarrassed about not being able to fit into a cocktail dress.

So the pics I'll download today are of me this morning, in a dress again ( dresses have become my best friend) and a sleeveless one at that......

Bring on Summer......

Awesome dress! I know what you mean about arms. I hate mine. I always wear a cardy or jacket when I wear sleeveless clothes. Absolutely dreading wearing the wedding dress!!

Glad to hear the gurdle has gone and 1 dress size is fantastic!

Your arms a beautiful - just live and love being cool and sleeveless. At least you haven't got the aging flap under the arms like some us have!!
