Doing something a little daring here. This dress has been sitting in my closet for a couple of months because I never found a special enough reason to wear it out. What I am wearing is perfect for a hot date or a night out on the town with girlies, but I actually wore it for the third day of my Blogher ’12 conference functions. Since it was also my final day of attending them for the week, I decided to go out with a bang. Because, well… why not?!

Wearing this dress made me realize how much weight I’ve lost. Sometimes it takes wearing a body conscious dress to see the difference. I’ve been trying to stay on the healthy route this summer by eating more vegetables, less fried food, and no carbs. Eating clean has improved my mood drastically — I feel more motivated and less sluggish. My typical dinner is a small steak cooked medium rare and vegetables 1/4 cooked. I guess I’m embarking on a raw-ish diet, lol, which is great because I love my sushi.
