New Clothes~

Friday, October 30, 2020

The best/worst thing about losing weight is buying a whole new wardrobe. I've finally gotten small enough that my old stuff just doesn't fit anymore (even with belts), so I've had to get new jeans, a smaller coat, and new workout clothes. While spending the money kind of sucks (knowing that I will probably not be able to wear any of this stuff by next fall), I do so enjoy the actual act of shopping, lol

I got some FLEECE-LINED leggings that are super warm, which I plan to wear under my active leggings when I go for walks. I've never been a cold-weather-outdoor-exerciser until this year, so this is uncharted territory for me. We went today at 39 degrees, and these leggings were super warm and comfy. . . so I think I can keep doing it at least until it gets icy. I also got a nice fleece hoodie that I can layer with another jacket or workout shirts. I REALLY love this hoodie... probably more than I've loved any other hoodie ever (check it out:

My husband heard me complaining about how I don't own a sports bra and BOUGHT ME ONE for my birthday (yay!). Now I can do my training sessions without constantly adjusting or ruining an underwire bra :)

I bought all of these things a size smaller than I wore like 2 months ago (which is another size smaller than I was wearing at the beginning of the year), thinking that if some of them were a bit tight, I could use them as motivation . . . welp. It all fits. All of it. and some of it is even a little bit big on me. I think I need to seriously re-asses my self-image. Things have just been progressing so quickly for me lately. It's not bad . . . it will just take a bit of time for my brain to adjust.

Soon I will need new underwear, bras, and shirts. I have no work wardrobe; luckily I'm working from home due to covid, so comfy fleece leggings can be my work wardrobe for now!

    I looked at your new hoodie on Torrid. It's a wonderful color, teal is one of my favorite colors too. I live in a too hot climate for me, not even interested in fleece lined anything. Usually too hot for me outside. It's only cold for 2-3 months out of the year here.

    You got this, you are beautiful inside and out.

    I’ve been wearing fleece leggings for couple years. Every day in the winter here in WI. Really helps keep me warm. I love them. emoticon

    I have fleece lined wind-resistant leggings for winter and I love them!! I bought 2 new sports bras at the beginning of my journey and one is getting too loose already... Which is exciting but frustrating!

    Awesome! I know when I was actively losing weight, I was constantly perusing Goodwill. It saved the budget a little bit.

    HUGS and continued good success.
