I challenge myself, 30 refashions in 30 days
I am challenging myself!
Why? Here is the story that led me to this challenge, if you care. If you just want the rules, skip to the bottom.
I am going through a uncomfortable time in my life. I recently had a baby, my first. I gained a lot of weight with that pregnancy. I did not want to buy any clothes in my, after baby size. It seamed like a waist of money, after all I had planned on being back in my size 2’s right away. I figured breast feeding was going to help while also making my tops way too small. So the plan was No new clothes until I could fit into my old ones.
I started feeling very sick not long after the baby was born. I started losing a lot of hair (I thought this was normal). Then I started feeling dizzy and sick. I went to my Dr. thinking I was already pregnant again. NO, not pregnant. They told me I was fine.
At this point I have bald spots (my Dr said that is normal after pregnancy, I don’t believe him) and I weigh more than I did at 40 weeks. I feel very sick and I am always in pain along with all sorts of other things. I found a Dr who gave me some blood tests; I should be getting the results soon. I am worried about them but hope they prove something is wrong with me and that going bald after pregnancy is not normal.
Still, a problem I have is I need clothing that fits. My maternity clothing, while it fits is out of season. That is a big problem where I live. (It was snowing and is now in the 100’s) No matter what this health issue is I am still sticking to the plan of no new clothes until I can fit into my old ones.
So let the refashioning begin!
