Shopping for clothes? I don't mind. Too much.

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

SparkCoach challenged me today to blog about this, and it struck a cord, so why not.

When I first started here at Sparkpeople, I was in a bad place; I was trying to find myself again.

I got into exercise, and started kicking butt and taking names. I joined a gym. I tracked.

And I lost 20 lbs. I felt *good*. I liked going shopping, because those were only 20 lbs, but they meant going from a 16 to 12.

Now? I'm still not hating clothes shopping, but I don't like it much. I'm still stuck in that size 12, and I feel like I should be a 10 by now.

So I have to start moving forward. No more excuses. No more "life in the way." Just good, hard work.

    I'm ambivalent when it comes to clothes shopping. If I had my way, I'd run around in gym clothes all day and be happy. Now that I work a real job, I have to look respectable. Which means... I have to go shopping. Mind you, I shop at TJ Maxx/Marshall's and I'm still appalled at what is being charged for a pair of pants or dress shirt. I'll be hitting the clearance racks at Macy's after the holiday.

    And don't get me started about clothing sizes. I'll bet you DO fit a size 10. you just need to find the right brand of pants. blame lack of standarization when it comes to women's clothing sizes. whenever I go shopping, I have to try on a variety of sizes. I don't just grab size x. If I do, I have to return it.

    Personally, I am a big believer that nothing says new attitude like some snazzy new clothes. It's good to see you Sparking !!

    I'm right there with you!

    Jan 1 I think I'll reset my Spark info. Make a fresh start.

    I'm finally starting to lose some of the lbs I gained back...dumb, dumb, dumb. I know how difficult it was to get that weight off. WHY do I let it creep back up???
