Clothes shopping May 13, 2010

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!

    Kristen- I follow the Walton & Johnson diet plan- Eat less, move around more. I've been doing more and more of the Wii Active, walks, bike riding, and watching what I eat. It's definitely paying off!
