I did a little shopping this weekend. I was in desperate need of short sleeve tops. All mine from last year were way too big now. (YAY!)
I went to Kohls (had a 30% off coupon), and for the first time in over 5 years I was able to shop in the misses section. It was a surreal experience. I still had to get XL tops, but the fact that I didn't need to head to the plus size section felt incredible.
Although I was really nervous I was getting to far ahead of myself. I would look at all the tops in my hand and think to myself, there is NO WAY they will fit me. They all looked so tiny!! I still see myself as 60 pounds heavier. When I look in pictures I see that I'm smaller, but looking in the mirror is a different story still. I keep on waiting for the day when I look and see that I'm back where I started. Even though I know in my head I can't gain 60 pounds in a day, I guess I still can't believe I've gotten this far.
Being able to try on top after top and have them all fit was amazing. It really helped me realize that I"m not the old me anymore. I even bought a size Large dress!!! It's just a little too tight, but in a month I think I'll be able to wear it. Which is just CRAZY to me. I really thought there was no way the Large would even fit over my head honestly. I couldn't believe I was able to put it on no problems. Just a little tightness around my stomach area.
I even got some workout pants that were larges. They were a little tight but fit pretty well for the most part. Just a few more pounds down and they'll be great! Basically I felt amazing this weekend. Being able to buy those clothes in the misses section was just unreal to me. I loved it! I can't wait until I'm fully out of the plus size stores and can go to the mall no problem!!
