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 procrastinator...so 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.
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!
