Last night I coloured my hair. This isn’t a big deal to most people, I wouldn’t have been to me two years ago. That’s how long it’s been since I’ve done it.
Having a baby is truly life changing, no one is ever really able to prepare you for it.
I wouldn’t change my little girl for the world, I love and adore every tiny part of her. But what I do want to change is how I feel about myself.
I went out the other week to have cocktails with a friend, for the first time since before I was pregnant. And I was so nervous! Terrified even, which is crazy. Why was I so nervous about going out and just being me??
I’m out of practice I guess, I’ve been so down lately about my weight, I didn’t know what to wear and I didn’t want to go out and buy a new dress as I’m in the process of losing weight.
Before I got pregnant, I would have had a choice of lovely dresses to wear and a choice of eyelashes too!
I’ve decided I need to start paying more attention to myself, don’t get me wrong I look after myself, I never leave the house without mascara and I’ve always got clean hair. But it’s the other things, I have made a start by colouring my hair again last night which has made me feel so much better.
Now it’s operation “lose a stone” and after I’ve managed that, I’m going to treat myself to a new dress, maybe even shoes!
I can’t believe that I’m the only person to feel this way, I would love to read your comments if you feel you can relate. Xx
