One of the things that really annoys me about being overweight is how hard it is to find clothes that fit, are flattering, and that look youthful and hip to match my outgoing and somewhat whimsical personality. As an avowed "geek," I am also super-excited about the prospect of building up a new collection of cool babydoll t-shirts to celebrate different sci-fi shows and the bands that I like.
I'm also really excited about the idea of splurging on pairs of high-quality designer jeans once I reach my target weight. I'm committed to the plan of getting to my target weight and then setting myself a ten-pound window (no more than five pounds over or five pounds under).
I'm fortunate to work in a field where, unless I have to dress up for an interview or similar, nice jeans and a blazer are completely sufficient for a work outfit. I love the look of perfectly fitted jeans, a sharp blazer, hot shoes, a little jewelry, and a fun and unexpected tee under the blazer.
I try hard to dress comfortably, flatteringly, and professionally at my current weight but ain't gonna lie--it's hard! So improving my wardrobe and overall "look" is something I am really looking forward to with this weight loss project.
I'm also planning to change my hair once I get closer to target weight. Maybe once I am a little over halfway there. Right now I'm thinking maybe cut it super-short like I used to wear it and experiment with a cool new color.
