Today was the first day since I started losing weight that I decided to try on new clothes. A friend took me to the mall, and we made a stop at Lane Bryant. After trying on the very limited amount of clothes that suited my tastes and budget, I learned that I've gone from a 30 to a 22. I even fit in a very snug 18. That makes me feel better, but I'm still aware that I'm a little less than 1/3 of the way done with this journey. It also made me realize that I've been so satisfied with buying comfortable clothes that fit for so long, that I have a lot of trouble developing my own style to make outfits. Tshirts, sweatshirts, and jeans have been the staple for far too long.
Even though I've made progress, I can't help but feel like it's not enough. I feel like I need to step up my game, but I'll never be one of those people that likes exercising. I feel that 30 minutes a day is more than enough, and anything more than that feels like torture.
All in all the day was good. Here's hoping the week is better.
