wearing a belt 1st time in???

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Yes, I am wearing a belt for the first time in I can't remember how many years.

I could not only never find belts in my size, nor did I want to wear them to show off my waist size. But here I am showing it off.

I took this picture today in my office bathroom as I don't have a full length mirror at home. The belt buckle is H for Hermes. I actually had to put it to the next hole tighter this morning when I put it on. Happy dance!

When I bought it, I thought no way would it fit me, not only did I like it, I bought a brown LV one too.

I used to hide under bulky sweaters, and I had lots of blazers to cover up. But no more.
I have also cleaned out my closet of old size 16,18,20 -1x,2x,3x clothes. I cannot believe how much I was hanging onto in all these sizes. Or have any idea how much money I spent on clothes, just to hide myself, try to look good and it was pretty much all in BLACK!

No more I say, purge, purge, purge. Nothing left just in case either.

I even have to purge my shoes as they are too big/wide now.

But I don't feel bad about having to buy a whole new wardrobe.

Thanks Sparkpeople!

    I hear you. For me it wasn't the belt but the little low rise jeans I stole from my daughter that had me doing the happy dance. I'll let anyone look at my waist line now. And yep like you all the big old baggy stuff is gone. For an almost 50 year old woman I've got a rockin bod and darn right I love showing it off.
