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!
