Fitting In… to that Dress

We all have that one item in our closet that we’re hoping to fit into one day. The skinny jeans that haven’t fit since college or the dress that you bought a size smaller hoping it would give you an incentive to lose those extra 10 pounds. You’re not alone.

I bought a dress a few months ago in my normal size that ran small, really small, but instead of returning it I kept it for down the road when I could eventually wear it. I’ve tried it on a few times since I bought it and every time it felt a little less snug. The most recent try on was last month but I still felt like it was a little tight. So while I didn’t expect a lot from today’s try on I was hoping (with fingers crossed) that I could finally wear this damn dress and not feel like if I sat down the seams would explode (hello wardrobe malfunction). I’m happy to say without having to wear two pairs of Spanx and no fishing wire in sight this dress finally fits which means “body be bangin”. Yes I can now say that about myself.

Even though I haven’t hit my final goal of losing 100 pounds I am feeling pretty good about some of these moments that are happening everyday in between losing 1 pound and 100.

Thank you for you words of encouragement along the way. I need all of the support I can get. Especially when I’m having a tough workout or want to skip a workout all together. So keep your comments coming. Until next time!
