I’ve always loved to shop – it just used to be A LOT HARDER. Everything was harder, my feet were a 4EE width and I was a size 24/22. So I did a lot of window shopping and shopping for others (My mom & kids). I’m approaching my 45-50lb weight loss milestone and almost as many inches lost – needless to say shopping is now pretty easy!
At #FitBlogNYC I got my first pair of “normal” running shoes from Reebok that actually fit and I think that was my ah-ha moment that things were changing and I was slowly returning to “normal” sizes.
I had a spare hour tonight and I intended on going to Wal-Mart to check out some more of their fitness clothing and then got sidetracked by the “CLEARANCE” posters in the windows at Sears. I was happily surprised at the few goodies I found!
I had found the next dress and searched all the racks for a different size, but all they had was a 10. By some weird twist of fate it fits – it’s a little lumpy – but again – spanx will fix that
I love the next option but it was just too short. It even had pockets!
I took my 2 winners and headed home. I was taking the kids out to bike night at my dad’s store tonight so needed to pick them up and find something to wear. This is what I came up with…
Now shopping gives me a sense of self-confidence – either that or my iphone just takes amazing photos – and it used to get me down and I avoided with all I could! I’m loving the change – my bank account might not be but I am!
