clothes, clothes, clothes

I’m heading to Chicago for homecoming weekend.  Can’t wait to see my friends again and have a great time at my alma mater.  Last weekend I went shopping for some new jeans.  I bought jeans a size down and also fit into some pants in the regular sizes.  Also bought a cute knit dress and some leggings.

So far this week, three different people have called me “skinny”.  I know I am far from it, but I feel so much better about how I look.  I fit into some pants I haven’t worn in ages, not since the last time I was under 200.  They are DKNY and I bought them in the “normal sizes.”  That’s such a huge motivational factor.  You go from having a small corner in the back of the store with limited selection, to the entire mall.  It’s dangerous!

Below is a not so great before and after.  I’ll be updating the after with a new photo of me in this outfit after I go out this weekend for Halloween.  I found out yesterday that I needed a costume for some fun parties I’ll be going to in Chicago this weekend.  I have performed at Ren Faires for many years and have a lovely back lacing corset.  Decided to be a pirate, since all I would need is a hat.  The picture on the left is from the Celtic Christmas concert I did with my band last December.  The picture on the right is me in my Halloween costume.  Same corset and shirt.  Same person, minus 21 lbs.  It’s a little hard to see, and I didn’t even have the corset tightened nearly all the way.
