I have had years to ponder all of the things I would like to own if I could actually fit my toosh into them. Years of envying bikinis at the beach, matchstick pants that fit perfectly and even tailored outdoor-wear! I haven't been able to fit in things from regular stores for such a long time that I've had plenty of time to daydream about the things I would buy if I could.
And now that I'm 50 pounds down, I am beginning to think I may actually be able to own these things one day! I still have a lot to go, but just being able to fit into jeans from stores other than Lane Bryant is such an incredible boost to my morale!
I am a horse-girl, I need a good Barbour waxed coat. I had a Barbour quilted jacket about 10 years ago, but only because the men's sizes fit me. I'd like a Patagonia puffy vest. I also want a decent pair of skinnies. Gap would be just fine. But the wash is key. Being heavy, I've steered away from washes other than dark dark to smooth out my lower half! I need a good shift for summer, a chunky sweater for winter and definitely some tall boots. I couldn't do a chunky knit or a puffer before, because I just didn't want to draw any more attention to myself. Lastly, I could use a sweet nighttime romper. Nothing too out-there. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Better get to work to afford a new wardrobe!
My next goal is to get 50 more pounds off by the winter. I've been hitting the gym and trying to stay on track, but I can tell my steadfastitude is wearing thin. Fingers crossed 'cuz I want that Barbour!
