Clothes shopping is not my favorite activity. For a while there I hated shopping because I didn’t like the way I looked. Thanks to my weight loss program, I’m liking myself more and more these days. I’ve lost a total of 34 pounds and gone from a size 16 to an 8 or 10 depending on the cut. And those 16’s were getting pretty tight. A couple of weekends ago I tried on my one and only pair of shorts. They fell off, which is a good thing since it meant I’ve lost a lot of weight. But a bad thing because it meant I had to go shopping.
Armed with coupons and determined to try on clothes without cringing, I hit Penney’s. I found shorts. I found three pair of shorts. Yep, three pairs. And in much smaller sizes too. That made it even better. And the fact that I had coupons and they were on sale was even better.
Having successfully tried on shorts the other day, I got very brave tonight. It was time to try on bathing suits. I dug to the back of the bottom dresser drawer to find suits I haven’t worn in a couple of years. The suits from 2 years ago fit pretty well. The biggest surprise, the best surprise, was the suit I had four years ago fits even better now than it did then! While I may not be the cutest, thinnest, sexiest person on the beach this summer, I’ll be very comfortable in my suit out there for the first time in years!
