Leigh's Transformation is Just Beginning!

Kristelle asked me to write about my DYT journey, which literally began in January.  I had seen a picture she posted and we had a little chat...which led me to the DYT site. I started watching the videos and ordered the book.

Now, I'm a veteran it took me 3 weeks to read the book. By then, after watching the videos, I knew I was a "Big Ole 3".  And, typical of a BO3, I skipped everything that didn't have to do with me. :D

Here's a picture of me from January 15th, just as I was getting into the videos.
I thought I looked good. I thought I was doing something I'd never done before by accentuating my waistline.

The day after I wore this monstrosity, I got to the videos about structure, color, shape and texture. BOY. That was an eye opener.  That weekend, I went through my closet and had to delete literally 3/4 of everything I had!  They were all black, white or round. In some cases, they were black, white AND round.  I went shopping that weekend.

Then I watched the hair and makeup courses.  BOY was I working everything wrong.  First, I'd stopped wearing makeup. Figured I was old and round and should just not even bother.  I normally wear my hair really cropped, but new I needed a little more volume at my weight/size, so I styled it differently based on the video information.

Here's one of the outfits I found without my color cards (which hadn't arrived yet), with makeup and hair:

I feel like a whole new person!  I almost want to take a picture a day so I can see how different I look.  I definitely feel different and a lot of folks at work  have noticed.  So, thank you Carol Tuttle and Kristelle for getting me back on track to being ME again!
