more fun to get dressed

Monday, September 30, 2013

I noticed last night as I was laying in bed that getting dressed, buying clothes, and fashion in general is becoming much more enjoyable as my belly is getting smaller. It's such a nice feeling to be able to put on clothes and to THINK about the clothes without feeling like my skin is going to be pinched up and uncomfortable.

By the way, I was headed out for a walk the other day, and I snapped these photos from the front and side. I thought it was time to do a big 'ole check in without sucking my gut in. To my surprise, I saw it's NOT AS BAD AS I THOUGHT! It's been years since I've done this. Soon, I will go through my archives and find the last time I did those type of photos and do a comparison. But for now, here they are.

I was at Goodwill the other day and saw some Victoria Secrets silky pajama pants in a dark midnight blue with a matching top that was a "half top". I knew it would show some of belly. I bought it thinking it looked about my size. I slipped it on last night after washing it and drying it and making it smell so pretty. My husband LOVED the outfit. He kept commenting on how sexy it made me look. I have to admit - I felt pretty in it. Nothing quite like sleeping in silk.

Things are getting better. One day at a time. One workout at a time. One bite at a time.

    I know what you mean about getting more excited about shopping.

    I live in the Philippines, and the clothes' sizes aren't as varied as in the US. I never went shopping here. My husband would say why don't you go in to look and I would say, I saw them already. I am not into those looks or whatever excuse.

    My goal before was just so I can fit into an XL here. Now, I can even fit into smaller sizes...not an S but still...compared to how I was 3 years ago.

    You are doing great!

    I love buying new clothes, and its so much more fun when you have a choice. Stores I used to just walk by I can now go in and actually buy clothes from them. I can actually go into Victoria Secret and find cute, sexy underwear that fit. Best of luck to you, your doing great. emoticon

    Fashion is a HUGE motivator for me to maintain, no question about it. Frivolous, superficial and vain?? Yup, plead guilty. It works.

    Love your pics, and your new pjs sound so pretty.
