Ever since I got pregnant my weight has been fluctuating quite a bit. I lost nearly all of my pregnancy weight about a week after I gave birth. Since then I’ve tried losing some more because I didn’t feel comfortable the size I was. But with all the “new mom, back to work, renovating the house” kind of stress, instead of my weight going down, it went up. I’m an emotional eater and I’ll always be.
Now that our kitchen is finally finished, I have a proper space to cook again, so I’ve got no more excuses to not go on a diet.
Or at least, I still have one and in my head it’s a valid reason because it’s also the reason why I’ve lost my sewjo.
I’ve got all these pretty fabrics in my stash which I’m afraid to cut into because what if I loose a lot of weight and the clothes I make don’t fit me anymore. Then I will have cut into my precious fabric for nothing. So the obvious choices are 1. don’t go on a diet or 2. don’t sew until I’ve lost the weight.
But I don’t feel good in the clothes I currently have and all my untouched patterns are seriously starting to mock me so I want to sew, I want to make pretty clothes I feel good in, nevermind what size I am (or getting). Also sewing releases stress which would reduce the emotional eating 🙂 (only selfish sewing does this btw)
So am I the only one whose afraid to cut into fabric because I might rapidly not be able to wear them anymore or am I just being plain silly and do I need to get over myself … Seriously, genuine question!
