I Bought Clothes. Lol

So, I sort of went against my challenge to myself yesterday, but I am glad I did.

I originally told myself that I would not buy myself a stitch of clothing until I lost a substantial amount of weight.  I was all for this, until I realized I have no winter clothes, and a pair of my dress slacks have a hole in an unforgiving place.  Needless to say, I had to make the choice to get a few new things.

Yesterday, I went to the store in hopes of not being completely and utterly depressed by trying on clothes.  Most times, I go into it with a horrible attitude, but I tried to be more positive about it this time.  At the end of the day, I left the mall with 7 new shirts and 3 new pair of pants!  The best part about it, is that the clothes I bought, were about a size smaller than what I usually get!!! I was feeling on cloud 20 million! One of the moments I was particularly proud of was the fact that I could go into a store that I couldn’t wear any pants in a couple months ago, and buy 2 pair of pants out of there yesterday.  I was in total shock and couldn’t believe it, but I was also proud of myself for pushing myself to get this weight off.

A lot of people say I look really good right now, but I feel like I could look better.  I try not to critique myself too hard, because hey; I am looking at myself everyday.  How am I going to see any differences? Everything still looks the same.  I told myself that I wanted to be under 200 by the time the new year comes. It’s not the goal I expected, but I feel it’s attainable. I have to keep trying and hopefully the next time I go shopping, I’ll have dropped another size!!
