So tunic length shirts came back in style a few years ago, and now leggings are of course popular and look so chic. So, you are telling me that I can get away with stretch pants and a glorified night gown every day at work? Dear Fashion Gods, please don't let this trend go out of style because, until I lose this 26 year old baby weight, I will not have anything in my closet I am comfortable wearing to work.
I've always been so self conscious when it comes to my body, particularly my butt. I like to think that the long tunic covers up what I want no one to see, so when someone makes a comment about how I've got a Kardashian booty, I am oddly surprised.
But, how did you notice that? I am wearing a shirt that is three sizes too big and could double as a tent for the next time I try my hand at camping.
You'll never see me in tight clothing. I'm always dressing
I think when you start a weight loss journey, it is important to set goals for yourself that aren't just about the number staring back at you when you step on the scale. So here are my non-scale victories I want to achieve:
1. I want to take a picture and not have to spend a minute and a half moving my head around so that my face is at a flattering angle for the camera. An angle I don't feel fat in.
2. I don't want to make the photographer take my picture 47 different times
3. I don't want to have to crop my images so that my fat arm isn't in the picture when I post it
4. I want to feel confident wearing shorts
5. I want my boots to fit like this.... instead of the "zipper won't zip up all the way" fit I currently have.
6. I want to buy a pair of pants from Forever 21. Not because I particularly love their pants, but because they don't make pants big enough to fit my big booty, never have.
7. I don't want to dread Summer.
9. I don't want to feel sad anymore when I look in my closet. I want to feel like there is a world of possibilities in that closet, rather than racks of clothes that look like crap on me.
So those are my non-scale victories I want to achieve. And I'm going to. We are going to!
What are your non-scale goals?
