I love me some clothes

Today was a wonderful shopping day!  My cousin is getting married in a few months at the beach and you know I have to be too cute for those vows.  I noticed one of my favorite places was having a dress sale.  You now how I love me some Old Navy.  Well, I walked out of there with three dresses.  You know I was happy about that.  However, there is another small victory that I have to tell you about.  

As you all know, I have been on a weight loss journey.  I use LoseIt to help me keep track of the calories that I eat and the workouts that I do.  Just last week, I had to add another hole to one of my favorite belts.  Since I was already at Old Navy, I decided to try on a pair of shorts.  For those of you that really know me, you know that I haven't worn a pair of shorts since I was a junior in high school.  Ok, let me get back to my story.  

I tried on a pair of shorts at Old Navy.  They were a smaller size (size 16).  I haven't been that size since I was a junior in high school.  In fact, that was the size I was when I was a cheerleader.  As I was pulling them up my legs, I got discouraged that just figured that I wasn't going to be able to get them over my thighs.  I did.  Then I got worried again because I was scared that I wouldn't be able to zip them or get them buttoned.  I did.  Needless to say, I walked out of Old Navy with those pair of shorts.  

I love shopping.  I love shopping even more when I get to buy a smaller size.  I'm not ashamed to say this - when I started this journey, I was wearing a solid size 24 in a dress.  I can now wear an 18 in dresses.  Now, my boobs haven't gone anywhere so I have just learned to deal with that.  However, I am learning to embrace my body.  I'm always going to be a plus diva and I am OK with that.  I like my curves.  I'm just glad that stores are embracing that some people are curvy.  

So, my special s/o today goes to LoseIt for helping me to continue to reach my goals and to Old Navy for just always being one of my favorite places to shop.  Now, I don't have any photos of me in my new outfits just yet, but when I do, I'll share them with you.  Happy shopping, plus divas, skinny divas, and to all the fabulous people of the world.  You deserve it!
