I have always been a shopper by nature, I have always loved to shop but the more weight I gained the less I wanted to, I basically shopped out of necessity to find clothes that actually fit my expanding body. Now I'm on the flip side I have to shop for clothes to fit my shrinking body and I am LOVING IT!!!
It has been a long time since I have been able to go shopping and love pretty much everything I have tried on. I can take size small shirts and size 4 or 6 pants into the dressing room and have them fit. I don't have that feeling anymore of trying stuff on only to have it not button or zip or pull down over my stomach. I can't explain how wonderful I feel to be able to buy a pair of knee high boots and actually be able to pull them over my calves, which I have struggled with for years. I have bought some of the cutest clothes I think I have ever worn and I just feel so stylish and pretty and it feels so good.
So that's it for my little happy fest about shopping, I'm sure so many of you can relate to that feeling of being comfortable in your own skin again and instead of trying to hide yourself from everyone now you feel like you can show yourself a little more, it's wonderful. I owe a lot to Spark and my Spark friends for giving me the tools and motivation to have lost 35 pounds over the past year, I know I put in the work but I couldn't of done it without this site and all the wonderful people I have met on here that offer so much support, inspiration and motivation on a daily basis.
