"I Cried In The Store Because This Was Just Such A Big Moment In My Weight Loss Journey"
“Had a bit of an eye opening experience today.... Being heavy all of my life, it’s hard mentally to see yourself any other way. I still wonder if I’m going to fit in plastic chairs, if I’m the largest woman in the room, if I can squeeze between 2 objects, etc. However, clothes are another issue... I still find myself shopping on the plus size side of the store but lately even the smallest sizes are too big. In my mind it just can’t be that way...”it just runs big”. My lower half is still a size bigger than my top but I got hips, thighs, and a butt that I will never get rid of and that’s ok! Lately I’ve ran out of clothes in my closet other than gym clothes. @kobert_1984 has been forcing me to try on smaller sizes lately to prove that I’m not as big as I think I am. Slowly I would pull a shirt from the “normal” side of the store but only one that looked big. Well tonight I officially made my first ever Buckle purchase!!!!! He dragged me into the store to look at some clothes. The cool clothes such as American Fighter and Affliction I just KNEW wouldn’t fit. He and the sales chick pulled down those against my will lol. So I was just a griping “they aren’t gonna fit, I don’t even know why y’all are trying to make me do this..” blah blah blah...well Rob got his 7 chuckles in because all of the shirts I tried on fit!!! I cried in the store because this was just such a big moment in my weight loss journey. Several stores I have always avoided because they weren’t considered “plus size”. I got an American Fighter Tank and an Affliction shirt! I’m so excited and kinda helped put into perspective my vision of what I see versus how things actually fit (coming from a 3x/26). I feel like a somewhat “normal” person now! Thank you for everyone who’s followed me, supported, and pushed me throughout my journey!
