The other day I went clothes shopping and I realized that I have not come to terms with my new size. It took my husband and my Mother in Law reminding me over and over again to buy the right size. I have gotten used to buying XL, but after trying on lots of clothes… I realized that I need to buy mediums.
I don’t know why this came as such a shock! I was still a bit nervous buying that size. Thoughts filled my head!
What if they shrink?
What if I am not comfortable wearing things that are not baggy?
What if I gain weight again?
In the end, I bought the medium shirts. I hope they don’t shrink.
I was at my In-laws house for Thanksgiving and they had a scale.
I know I have lost weight. I can tell by the weigh my clothes fit, but I have not actually weighed myself to find out how much weight I have actually lost. I decided it was about time to find out my actual weight (after Thanksgiving dinner).
I was 115 when I entered college.
I weighed about 130 when I got married.
I was about 135-138 when I got pregnant with my daughter.
And my goal weight was 135 when I started this blog.
8 more pounds to go before I reach my goal!!
It is funny, but now that I have lost weight and I have to put up my bigger clothes (size 14), I am a bit saddened. As I fold them, I am think about how much I loved those pants or skirt. I am so happy to fit back into some clothes I have not been able to wear since before I had kids, but there is still a little saddness for the clothes that I have been wearing.
I know that seems silly, but it is true.
Has anyone else had these mixed feelings before?
I don’t know how much weight I have lost, but today was a great day. I pulled down all the pants that I had put up in hopes that I would someday fit into them.
Today I did! I put on my favorite jeans trousers and they fit… better yet they were a bit loose!
I feel like my wardrobe has expanded overnight.
At some point I would love to see what I weigh… but for now I will be happy with the feeling of my skinny jeans.
