I would say that I had 'IT' up until a few weeks ago when I got pregnant with DC4. Now I am on the slippery slope to not being able to do up my skinny jeans, no longer wearing perfume etc. But hell, its all in a good cause and hopefully I'll be back to my best by 6 months after the birth!
'IT' heartlessly left me for another a few years ago. It was hard. I've joined some groups, built my self esteem up a little, had a GAP year, and now I am happy to say (out loud) that I no longer need 'IT' and that 'IT' does not validate me.....
I now have 'I', you see, I chucked out the 'T', who needs a 'T' anyway? I love 'I', we are getting on just fine, and I have my groove back as 'I' and not a generic 'IT'.
I used to have "it", then lost "it" VERY fast when I fell pregnant with DS. Took me 4 years and 2.5st to get "it" back, and today my day was made when a 24 yr old hottie told me I was "fit!!" He may well have been lying, but I'm going to pretend he wasn't!
I still have IT and hope to have IT for a very long time to come. My self-belief did take a bashing the other day when I was feeling very full of IT and Cliff Richard popped up on my mp3 player. IT left very quickly at that point.
