I have, it has to be said, put on a whole heap of weight over the last few months. I think running around for business meetings, eating what I can when I can, not making healthy choices and lack of exercise have really taken their toll. So when I was shortlisted for the UK Blog Awards 2018 my first thought was, “What on earth am I going to wear?!”
Enter a mad dash around the shops looking for something that would flatter my somewhat generous bod – I am now a UK size 14 and all the extra weight is in all the wrong places. Everything I picked up seemed to draw attention to those parts of me I wish to cover up – at least until my new healthy eating plan does its job and my weight decreases.
I was lucky enough to leave the awards with a Highly Commended in the Lifestyle category which is quite an accomplishment for this little blog of mine.
A big thank you to everyone who voted to get me to the UK Blog Awards. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading what to wear to an award ceremony if you are carrying extra weight – and Andrew added, “And you want to look like an explosion in a paint factory.” 🙄
I’ll be popping a video up soon about the evening itself.
