Day 23

Day 23. Today was about focus and for me focusing on the good things. After the fat-shaming, I had to remind myself that I am in fact focusing on my health and working really hard to get rid of weight and get back to my healthy weight. My reminder yesterday was putting on two dresses I recently made. Reminding myself that I am almost two dress sizes down. When I made these dresses I actually made them 2 dress sizes down. It helped me focus on the fact that I am doing something positive. I’m running a make a vintage/vintage reproduction dress a month with two sassy vintage loving ladies. I am hoping that by dress 12 I will be at my healthy weight. I’ve included a current photo of me wearing the dresses.


Continuing on the theme of sassy ladies. When most think of Rockabilly, they think of the male artists and forget that women were a huge part of the beginnings of Rock and Roll and it’s continuation as Rockabilly. I love Rockabilly and Surf music. They are happy, be a rebel, get er done music to me and the women who are the part of it all, are exactly that, rebellious and getting it done! Wanda Jackson is a very recognizable name and she only recently retired from playing. We were lucky to catch her last show at The Cadillac Lounge. Other women you should know are Janis Martin, Bunny Paul, Sparkle Moore, Lorrie Collins of the Collins Kids, Jo Ann Campbell, and Alis Lesley just to name a few.


The photo is of Sparkle Moore.
