Last week I went shopping for a whole new wardrobe! Expensive, but much needed for the fall and winter seasons. I am 3 sizes smaller than I was last year. My winter coat was a 3x and I remember that being tight on me before. The middle of winter last year I was swimming in it, so a new coat was a necessity this year.
I was super pumped because, not one piece of clothing I bought was plus size. I was able to shop and stick with the women's section w/o having to go up to the plus size. I have been able to do this before, but sometimes I had to still go up to the plus size. This time an ENTIRE wardrobe was plus size free, it was a nice feeling.
I remember the times where I couldn't get clothes because they didn't have a bigger size. I couldn't find anything that would fit me or was embarrassed because I had to go the next size up. I remember the dismay when I had to get a size 24. I topped out at that, I wasn't sure where I would be able to get clothes if I was bigger than that. I certainly didn't have the money to order things online. All I can say is thank goodness I decided it was time for my journey.
So I got some new clothes and am ready for the seasons! (just not all the snow that is going to come with it!)
New things happening: I am running another 5k this coming weekend. It is called "Run from the cops" I am more confident going into this one than my first one! I have a few more planned out and even a 5 mile one on Thanksgiving. The biggest test will be the 1/2 marathon next May. My mom always told me I never did anything the easy way... :)
Keep your head up and keep the positivity flowing!
