- My center is switching over to the monthly pass (that includes e-tools) which is AWESOME!
- My hubby's work is now paying for me to go!
- I was down 2.0 pounds!
Yes, today was a great day at WW. I am now down 35.2 pounds from when I started WW in May. I'm down 54.8 from when I had Con Man. AND....I'm down a WHOPPING 65.8 pounds from my biggest in 2010!
I feel good. Every pair of pants that I own are now officially too big. (Too big, as in my butt is saggy...and I can slide them on and off with out undoing buttons. AND...most of them just slide off by body with every step I take.)
Yes. I think it's time to go shopping for new clothes.
But I'm afraid!
I'm afraid because I have too many memories of going pant shopping and leaving frustrated, or in tears. I have always HATED trying to find pants that fit! Even now, after all the weight I have lost, I'm still worried. I get self conscious. I don't want the "muffin top" but I don't want the "saggy butt" look either. I have never found a great pair of pants that fit me just right. And it gives me anxiety to think I might have to go searching for some.
(Anxiety for 3 reasons...1. what I said above. 2. $$$ 3. I am style STUPID!)
I've addressed my worry and anxiety about clothes fitting right....
As for the $$$...
Who knew losing all this weight would be so expensive for a whole new wardrobe! I guess I have postponed the inevitable long enough, I know I'm going to have to bite the bullet. I am just finding it hard to justify buying myself clothes when there are so many other needs in our household. After I had kids, my wardrobe shopping became nonexistent because I have never looked at it as a need. I've always just made do with what I had. I'm having a hard time doing that now that I can't keep any of my clothes up. Maybe I'll invest in lots of belts and just synch my pants up...
That brings me to #3. Fashion sense.
Yes, I am style stupid! I see so many women wearing the cutest clothes. It was something I dreamed one day I could do...you know, one day when I lost a bunch of weight. Well, now I have lost a bunch of weight, but I haven't gained fashion sense! My hubby teases me about some of the clothes I have in my closet...asking what generation I was born in. (He thinks some of my sweaters are a little grandma-ish.) I would love to dress hip and stylish. I just don't know how! I don't even know where to begin. I go to a store, with money in hand...determined to find a cute new outfit. I leave with clothes for the kids because I couldn't find anything for me. What's a girl to do?! Seriously!
I am in desperate need of a wardrobe 101 makeover...I need to be taught. Maybe I'll try again this weekend. Or maybe, I'll just invest in those belts to synch up what I already have...
