I'll give you all a moment to recover from the shock...
Yes, it's been a while. But, the point is, I'm getting back up on that horse now, right?
The challenge this week is the brain child of MiMi, and was such a cute idea, that I just had to join in!
HOW WOULD YOU DRESS DIFFERENTLY IF YOU WEREN'T OVERWEIGHT?
Right now, I am a pretty easy dresser. I have some cute clothes, but I don't want to risk getting them messed up when I just sit around the house, so the bulk of my wardrobe is T-shirts, jeans, and a few pairs of capris. I wear my "cute clothes" when I go for a girls night out, or when I go to the elementary school to volunteer, but that's about it.
So, what would I do differently when I reach my goal weight? Probably not much. My "going out" clothes would get cuter, but I would probably still be frumpy ol' me at home. Maybe just a size or 3 smaller, that's all!
Here is a sampling of what I found that I would eventually consider wearing. While scouring this particular website for possibilities, I realized that once I reached my goal weight, I would probably do just as well to move to a nudist colony. After all, I'll be hot, right? So, I might as well not spend $575 on a top, $995 on a dress, and $134 on a swimming suit.
Then, I realized that I'm not comfortable wth that idea.
Sorry if you just got an uncomfortable mental image, guys!
Here are the main reasons why I picked these entirely overpriced items...
- When I am skinnier, I hope to have the confidence to wear a bathing suit WITHOUT board shorts. Dare to dream, eh?
- In the picture of the khaki colored trousers, the woman appears to have no thighs. I long to not have thighs. Mine currently resemble cottage cheese. Not even tan cottage cheese, just cottage cheese. YIKES!
- I would alter the tank top slightly, by putting a cap sleeve tee under it, What can I say? I'm a farmer tan kinda woman!
So, what would YOU wear once you lost your "baby
Almost totally unrelated...while perusing the jeans, I began to have flashbacks of my chidhood. Skinny jeans with a zipper in the back by the ankle, with a bow. THAT ladies, is why I will never be caught wearing skinny jeans. The image of me running to the school bus in skinny jean/bow pants is permanently seared into my memory. Am I the only one who wore those? *nervously chews thumbnail* Oh, wait, I didn't either... yeah, that's it.
