WHAT TO WEAR
Hello to all. I am out of town for a weekend getaway in Phoenix, Arizona. I wanted to touch base on a subject that is hard for me to face since I have been overweight, fashion. I feel wonderful that I am slowly achieving my weight loss and fitness goals but I admit shopping for clothes has been a daunting task. You are no longer as overweight as you were but still a long way off to your goal. Not knowing which fashions will look good on your transitioning physique is problematic when you have an event you must shop for. I am not at the point where I feel I can make fashion risks so I play it safe with jeans and summer dresses. I normally live in work out clothes but there comes a time when you have to wear more than yoga apparel and look a little more refined. Sometimes I wish I could have a stylist when I get to my goal weight to help me reveal my new figure with fashion.
I purchased two new summer dresses for my weekend in the valley of the sun. One I wore, the other I never had the chance to wear since we spent so much time swimming. I did decide to buy the white dress when a kind stranger in the dressing room said it was beautiful on me. I could not see that myself because my mind is still over 200 lbs. An extra eye when shopping is necessary when trying on clothes after weight loss. Sometimes are own vision of our reflection is distorted with a memories of how we used to feel and look when we were overweight. Time to make over our body image as well as our wardrobe. I am a work in progress always.
