Its all in my head...

Hello and good morning to everyone out there,

Its been a very HOT weekend here, I am talking triple digits. Anyways, I have really  been trying to change my style of clothing, however I have had much difficulty finding stores that spark my style. My mom and I went to an outlet mall yesterday and I was really excited to go, I have dropped several sizes since being heavy and I was ready to try on anything and everything.

We start shopping and for some reason every store I would walk into, I would see the TINY people going in and out of the stores and looking at the size of the clothes I would walk in and then walk out and tell my mom that nothing in that store would probably fit me. Of course she did the mom thing and said "Michelle I hate to tell you, but you will fit into those clothes now."

I guess I feel like when I take my clothes off, ALL of my weight reappears (due to excess skin). And then of course my self esteem drops several points. So what did I come out with from the outlet mall? 3 bras which I needed new bras anyways. Turns out I dropped a complete cup size and actual size (not bad).  However, I wasn't happy walking out of that mall with absolutely no new clothes! I went to the outlet mall wanting to find some really cute tops (different from my typical old navy style which I can't stand anymore) and I always see these really cute long sun dresses and I wanted to find one for myself...again failed. So long story short, I went home a little disappointed thinking there are no stores for me out there!

So I told my sister, Rachel, the story. I have come to the conclusion that I think its better if I go shopping alone. Then I don't have to feel as if I am holding someone up or rushing to look at things. So I decided to attempt shopping once more last night and went to Khols, where I really have never shopped. I was on my way talking to Rachel and telling her about my day and the clothes that I was looking for. She said Khols is a great place to start, but if I wanted a sundress I would have to look for it in the juniors department. Immediate RED FLAG in my mind. I told her are you crazy? There is no way anything from the juniors department is going to fit me. Rachel told me I had to just try, and she assured me that the sundresses would fit. So she wanted me to take her shopping with me, however Rachel lives in FL. So shopping with her was through my camera phone. I actually found a dress that I really liked from the JUNIORS department and sent a picture to my sister and she said "you look adorable, and you better buy that!" haha I definitely took her advice and bought it, and showed my mom and she loved it too! So it turned my bad day in a brighter day!

So I still have to find some cute tops, maybe you all can help me, what stores do you shop at for your cute clothes? I definitely have to get better, and realize im not that heavy girl anymore. It will take some time, but I know I will get there. I will share my picture from the dressing room with you all. Enjoy.


My new Sun Dress...love it!


As always, lets shed those extra pounds together!! I hope you all are staying cool out there, and I hope everything is doing great! Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  1. That sundress is fantastic! You look great my dear! I can totally relate on the shopping front. I walk in to shop and head directly for the plus size section. I still am in 16 to 18 pants but the shirts are what is shrinking for me. But I just can't always see it. I think I'd be smaller in pants if it wasn't for some skin, it isn't awful but I can live with big boobs if the skin would continue to shrink! You have a good sister. I do too. Can't wait to hear where you wear the cute dress to.

    And Kohl's is a pretty awesome store all around. I look forward to shopping at Old Navy and Eddie Bauer when I'm at goal. For now it's pretty much just going to be the Goodwill :)
