Default Going to need some NEW SHORTS...

So the weather has been really nice here the last few days and it has been making me think about spring and summer clothes. I have some really nice capris that have not fit in a long time that are a little lose now so that should get me through most of spring but I really only have shorts from last summer. I pulled out what was my favorite pair from last year and put them on & HOLY COW they were so big they were falling off and down around my ankles within seconds! HUGE HUGE HUGE wow did that feel great. When my husband got home I had to show him how big they were and I jokingly said you could put our son in these with me... so he did and I was walking around for a min or 2 with my 3 year in my shorts with me. We were all laughing so hard my stomach hurt!

Starting weight 285lbs
Skinny Mini Goal #1 Hit 1/4 of total Goal weight 27.5lbs
Skinny Mini Goal #2 Hit 1/2 of total Goal weight 55lbs
Skinny Mini Goal #3 Hit 3/4 of total Goal weight 82.5lbs
Overall weight goal is to lose 110lbs

That's awesome!! It's always nice when the little things remind us that our hard work is paying off. Have fun shopping!

Personally, I have not worn shorts since middle school... I'd like to get to a point where I'm not too self conscious, but for now, I'm working on being comfortable in capris. Baby steps!
