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.
