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.
