Since gaining weight these past years, fashion has taken a serious backseat and I was all about whatever made me look less fat. My wardrobe consisted of black, and black. And jeans. Fall has always been a favorite of mine, though, because that means I could go back to hiding behind baggy sweaters, and my jeans were totally seasonally appropriate.
Now that I've lost about 20lbs this year (and 25 from my heaviest), and have been at least holding steady in the 160's even if I'm not losing right now, my self-confidence has received a major bump and I'm finding I love to dress cute. It's FUN to put an outfit together, and rock it! I honestly didn't think I'd enjoy clothes until I got to goal, or at least much closer, but I have been so wrong.
Another thing that's really surprised me already is how much I love to take pictures of myself in my cute clothes. My friend, Amanda (hi bitch!), and I have always fought over the best spot to hide ourselves in the back of the picture when taking group shots. She and I have been the "fat" friends for so long, but that's certainly changing for both of us! She's been losing weight as well, and I'm so proud of her accomplishments!
There are very few pictures of me from my bigger girl days because I avoided the camera whenever possible. Now? I find myself taking pictures of myself frequently to show off my pretty clothes because I feel damn good! I'm still a long way away from my goal weight, but damn if I'm not celebrating my losses along the way.
|Everyone say hi to Amanda!|
Clearly, I love Target. And boots.
