Hello my dears! How are you doing?
So, Easter is already behind us, and so is my No-buy break. I surely did very well during these 40 days! I haven't bought anything. Not one little hair pin, anything! (Though I had actually received some cosmetic related gifts I'm not counting) But I'm still not proud of myself, because
in no buying new products I realized how many products I have bought in the past, started using and left half full to use something else. When I emptied my first bottle of shampoo during the NBB, I went through my stash and saw I had no less than two different unopened shampoos (one of them reviewed here) and other two bottles half full. Well, that's not right and it's only an example! Same thing goes with a lot of other products!
For this reason I've decided I'm going to continue with the Buy ban until I've used up all the products I have. Of course, I'm now allowing myself to buy nail polish "moderately". I realized during the ban, with all the spring releases, that I was trully not interested in most of them. I started writing them down on my wish list, but while re-reading the list, I realized I could delete many of them and I did. This means I'm going to think very well when a new collection comes out, and filter my wish-list ten times before placing an order with the following questions: "Do I really WANT this polish?", "Will it finish on my untrieds forever?", "Do I have something similar enough that does not justify the purchase?".
So that's that about cosmetics and nail polish. But the ban was bigger! So I'm going to allow myself a hair cut I need desperately, and also some new clothes. My body shape has changed with maternity, and the lack of sport is not helping me lose my superfluous weight. I tried to get help with this issue and talked to my doctor about it, asking her to advise for a nutritionist. Her answer was I'm not "overweight" because my BMI is not over 25 so my health insurance was not going to cover the fees of a nutritionist. I'm currently in no position to afford a treatment myself. So I'm searching the net for a trust worthy less expensive option to lose some weight. Does anyone know about one? I'm inclined to join the Weight Watcher's program, but I'm still not sure. My BMI is now 23.7 and I'd be happy if I could reach a healthy 21.0 BMI, that means for me loosing 8 kg (that's about 18 lbs) and be hopefully translated in 2 sizes smaller, so I could wear most of my wardrobe.
Please, please, please, let me know if you have any experience (good or bad) loosing weight and what would you advise me to do!
Lots of love,
