I have to keep checking my calendar because it is so hard for me to believe that we finished 26 weeks of this little diet pact! I am in awe of what we have accomplished! I have lost 40 pounds yes 4 tens, 8 fives, 40 pounds!
While I was shopping for clothing (because everything is too big muhhahahahahhhhahaha!) I realized that all of my clothing was very plain. Not that there is anything wrong with plain. Most of the things in my closet are 1) solid colors 2) darker colors 3) no patterns anywhere! I have been thinking about it and wondering if I was consciously choosing clothing that allowed me to fade into the background or was I just trying to hide? I just don't know.
While shopping online I still looked at Eddie Bauer and I'm loving their stuff! And to top it off when I went shopping, I strolled through Lane Bryant and had absolutely NO desire to buy anything! I kept looking at it saying, "I own too many of these kinds of shirts!" and since I can now shop in a REGULAR store (can you hear angels singing? I can!) I left feeling really good about my successes this year!
I can't remember the last time I had so much fun shopping for clothing! let me repeat: I had fun shopping for clothing! ::chuckle:: AND I looked good in my new purchases! woohoo!
