Summer Shorts!

Thursday, March 22, 2012

So I got a wild hair up my (well ya know) and decided to try on the shorts I recall wearing in my early 20's. They are shorts that I used to look good in and really really loved so I still have them 8-10 years later. These are my goal shorts becuase it's clothes that I can remember wearing and how I felt in them.

HAHA - It was eye opening to realize just how much weight I have put on over the years. While the shorts are marked 20W, they are more like a 16. There is no way losing just 2 sizes (currently a 24) is gonne get my butt (acutally my stomach) into those shorts.

You know when people ask you what were you doing when....?? Well.. I can tell you how I was feeling when I was wearing those. I felt fearless, confident, sexy, and attractive. While i have always been a big person, I carried it very well.

For me.. it's not just about getting back into those shorts, it's about feeling that way again. I lost those along the way (or should i say weight) and I want it back. I'm gonna fight for it and I'm going to fight for me!!!

Anyone else have a piece of clothing that reminded them of how they felt when they wore it?

    YES! I have a beautiful dress that is still in the closet, waiting for me to put it back on when I reach my goal size. But along the way -- It is sort of fun to try on pants that were too small and have them fit again -- gradually, slowly, the waistband moves closer and closer together, until eventually they fit!! YES!
