Embroidered Shirt Dress
Monday, April 11, 2016
My new Roaman's catalog just got here this afternoon and I'm so excited to go through it. The company specializes in closes sizes 12 and up and they're so cute and very trendy. I've ordered a few things from them, but of course the clothes never look the same on me as they do on the "plus size" model. Yes, the woman in the catalog photo above is considered plus size. She looks normal size to me...
Anyway, her size isn't why I posted the photo. I wanted to share with you this dress. I'm planning to order it for myself to wear in July. I looks like a perfect summer dress, and I've always been partial to white dresses. White makes me feel beautiful and light. The catch? I'm going to order a size 16. I'm currently a size 20 and want to be a size 16 (at least) by July. That's just two sizes and it gives me enough time to really allow my body to lose some weight.
I planned a few vacations for the next couple of months. A weekend in Monterey, another weekend in Santa Cruz and Capitola, a few days in Los Angeles and Hollywood (Disneyland and Universal Studios!), and then a night in Half Moon Bay. I'm so excited to have some time off to look forward to and spend with my son. He loves little trips, so it'll be good for us to get away this summer. I also want to book out this beach cabin that we usually go to in San Luis Obispo, sometime in August. This motivates me even more to lose weight so I can have energy to actually do some activities and participate more. Even going to Disneyland has made me anxious. Last year we went and there was a few things where I felt like I had to really suck it in and squish. I'd like to just go on a ride without worry about anything like that.
Tomorrow is my weigh in day and I am pretty excited. I hope to see anything, ANYTHING less than 285!
