I love pretty clothes. For the longest times I could only shop in stores that sold larger sizes and while they mostly tried to be hip, a lot of times it was a big fail.
I decided to use pretty clothes as motivation to stay on track and eat better and exercise as much as possible. Its starting to pay off too:)
As mentioned in another post I found out that Ricki's goes up to a size 18 in tops and 20 in bottoms and I was soooo happy. Today I put their clothes to the test.
Bear in mind that I'm bloated and crampy as its my TMO so I wasn't' feeling pretty or confident that anything would fit even with major sucking in of the tummy.
Ha!!! The cropped pants fit great, just a bit snug but I figure in a week they'll be perfect. Also I purchased a pair of cool and comfy black linen Bermuda shorts.
I also picked up some clothes this past weekend at Old Navy and Wal-Mart too. I think my size 18 shopping is now complete and now I wont shop again until I'm down to a 14/16
Tomorrow I'm going to start the Couch to 5k program. I downloaded and app on itunes and I'm so excited too. I'm not looking to become a runner or do any races but I do feel it will help me be more fit and even help with endurance for long walk/hikes and bike rides.
What is your motivation for being fit other than the normal reasons?
Much Love & Healthy Living!!
