Frumpy and Fat, my two least favorite F words

I was tagged in a photo on Facebook today and could barely look at myself.  I looked frumpy and fat.  The truth is I have gotten fat again.  I weigh the exact same as I did 10 years ago, but I wear the weight differently now.  I used to gain weight all over with a concentrated area in the tummy.  People would wonder if I was pregnant since I had a flap of fat over my 4-time c-section scar.  On September 1, 2003 I started the diet/eating plan that at one point gave me a total weight loss of 44 pounds.  I wasn’t at my lowest weight for long though, because I achieved that goal and then came back to the states for a 7 month stay 2 days later.  I entered the country and gained 5 pounds!  Just smelling the fried foods in the airport packed on a pound or two I think.  In August of 2006 I had a tummy tuck and from that point on any weight gained either went to my boobs, legs or butt.  My tummy stayed flat for the most part.  My weight fluctuated by a few pounds for the next 3-4 years.  In the last 3 years I’ve gained weight, but I haven’t really cared that much.  I lost about 15 pounds this summer and I’ve managed to keep about 11 of those pounds off.  I really need to do something, because my clothes aren’t fitting very well right now and I have no desire to go buy new, bigger clothes.  And did I mention that I look frumpy!  I have got to do something about that!  I want to look fabulous!  Working on that now.
