I went shopping... in my closet

Saturday, June 23, 2012

I dont know about any of you.. but I know that I have spent money on clothing iteams that I couldnt fit into because I liked it, thought it was pretty, and dreamed that I would fit into.
I knew it wasnt really the best thing to do but I refused to not purchase things.. even if I would only wear it while standing in front of my "Magic Mirror", I still wanted it.

Today I was getting ready for work and realized that I had not done my work laundry, so I had not one blouse to wear. I was highly angry with myself because I uslally always make sure I have clean work shirts.

Then, something in the back of my mind said that I do have a few blouses hanging up in my closet that I could wear. I walked over and pulled a really pretty Pink blouse out, by far one of my favorites, and put it on.

It Fit

I was so excited but also very nervous that I walked out my front door, to my neighbors house, rang the bell, then proceeded to ask Mr. Taylor if I looked nice, or if i looked like a stuffed sausage. He just laughed and said that it fit well.

It didnt occur to me that losing 30lbs would make me able to wear some of the things I had purchased for myself thinking that I would never be able to wear them in public.

So, now when I get home tonight, I get to go shopping in my closet for someting to wear tomorrow to work. It makes me shiver with anticipation to think of the things I will be able to purchase and wear and that will look good once I lose 40lbs, 50,60..ect.

I Cant Wait!!

    I've packed all my XL, L, 18, 16, 14, 12, and 10's away because I knew that I could never afford to rebuy all those clothes. So now as I get in shape, it'll be like unwrapping Christmas packages!!

    I went jean shopping in my closet for my "skinny jeans" and now even those don't fit anymore! I can't wait for you to get home and delight in all the clothes you now can wear. And congrats on losing 30 pounds!

    I have the same problem in my closet, I had lost weight, went shopping for new clothes, then gained weight so they don't fit emoticon . Now I've came back to a active spark life in hopes that I can fit back into my new clothes. Still have the tags. I'm not there yet but I will be. emoticon Best of luck on your weekend SHOPPING TRIP!You deserve it. emoticon

    Very cool! I went through a stack of jeans and shorts this morning and discovered that I fit comfortably in the next size down. What a great feeling!
