I've posted about this elsewhere, but wanted to put it here too. I had a great great NSV yesterday...
I have been obese my entire adult life, and spend my down time in men's sweats and such. Yesterday, I walked by a clearance rack at a sporting goods store and discovered something previously unbeknownst to me: Manufacturers carry specific lines of SPORTSWEAR designed for WOMEN! Shirts, and shorts and nifty sweatpants that snug whole lot closer than men's stuff. Who knew??
I thought, "what the heck" and decided to try some on. Well, I looked in the mirror, and cried at what I saw.
For the first time ever, I cried NOT because I hated what I saw, but because I looked liked I belonged in those clothes. I might even go so far as to say I looked good in them.
I bought several items on clearance, because I don't want to invest in things I won't like... I mean, I've never had shorts that "wick away" moisture...kind of cool!
AND, who knows, I may not be this size for long. I'm feeling really energized about my new bod lately and am really starting to believe I can continue to do this! (Is it insane that I'm only believing I can do it AFTER I lost 100 pounds??)
I think I'm going to try NOT to borrow hubby's sweatpants any more, cause these look SO much better on me. And somehow, I think more "sportswear" is going to end up in my closet!!
