Pretty Much A Miracle

Well, I did it. Finally.

I actually managed to keep a New Year's resolution.

It is the only one I made this year. (click on the link to read my weight loss strategy)

The resolution: Lose 20 pounds by the end of May.

Well. Here we are at the end of May and not only did I meet that goal...I surpassed it!

As of my three week postpartum appointment (Tuesday) I am down 25 pounds! Yay!

Now to get some new clothes...

When I got into the box that was supposed to hold my pre-baby clothes I found...I had thrown most of my pre-baby clothes away! And forgot about it! My wardrobe currently consists of long sleeve shirts and sweaters, a few dresses, a few pair of pants, and many, MANY light gray shirts of various sleeve lengths. And all of the light gray shirts have a VERY low v-neckline.

What is with me and light gray v-necks?!?

A shopping I must go!

I would love to love shopping, but I don't. I'm not very good at shopping for myself. And I don't shop much, which I think is part of the problem. I realized that I "season shop."

When we enter a new season I find that I am needing a few (or in this case many things) and do one shopping trip where I basically buy the same few things in multiple colors. Reading these posts has made me #1: aware of my drab wardrobe & #2: want to be a better shopper.

I did make a quick trip to my mom's new resale shop and got a few cute things. Now I just need to figure out how I can manage four kids while clothes shopping! That ought to be fun...

Yes! That's awesome! Woo hoo! :-D

I almost never clothes shop too. I have gotten by the last few years with a few emergency purchases and good finds at garage sales. I am NOT a fancy dresser.... don't know if I'm drab or not, but clothes definitely aren't my passion. haha

Good luck!

25 pounds in 3 weeks is awesome! Woohoo!
So, thanks for the shout-out, although I definitely don't want to make anyone feel bad about their wardrobe! Sounds like you need new stuff though so I'll give you my key to enjoying shopping a little more - and that is to NOT take 4 kids with you! ha ha :)
