Posting this as motivation and a reminder to myself of how far I have come. After falling off the fitness bandwagon for about a month and gaining a few I literally felt like the biggest failure on earth. I’m way too hard on myself, constantly picking and pointing out things that are “wrong” with me. I’m beginning to realize that the only way I am ever going to be truly happy is when I love and accept my body while appreciating the progress i have made. My biggest issue is comparing myself to others… It’s something I’m trying to work on. The first photo is one of me my senior year in 2009 and the second was taken today, 6/18/13 before I tear it up at the gym ;)
This is a cheap, long, flaired out maxi dress I got from a small store near my house. It is a MEDIUM. You see when buying clothes, never underestimate the power of stretch. The stretchy material helps but what really helps is all the excess fabric and the wide flair at the bottom. It was meant to be a long, loose dress on a smaller woman BUT longer garments make up for small sizes. Because I’m so big I take up more of the shirt, making it shorter. With a long dress you will not run out of fabric for your belly and if you hike it up the flair at the bottom accommodates your larger midsection! Bottom line…
Skinny girls maxi dress= fat girls party dress!
“One size fits all.” Just in different ways. :)
Atta girl. Looking good bby. (;
My summer read! Can’t wait to learn some new things I’ve decided I will do the big chop in September! I’m super excited!!
