As I inch closer to my next mini-target, I’ve found myself evaluating the clothes in my closet. As a woman who has struggled the majority of her life with her weight, I have a closet full of items that fit me at various points of my weight cycle.
Why have I kept them?
Well duh….every single time I started a new year, I told myself I would finally commit to getting fit. So I have many pieces that have moved from apartment to apartment over the years because I was determined to fit in them again. I started every new year thinking I would be in them by the end of that calendar year.
Have some of those items moved on to happier homes? Have many of my favorite (and classic) pieces stayed in my closet? Yes.
Not be excluded from this conversation is my workout gear. I have specific outfits for working out with Ray and other outfits for when I’m in the privacy of my own home and no one will ever see me in them. These are those skin tight options that let you see what your body is doing and allow you to focus on form over fighting with whether or not your shirt is riding up or if it’s covering your ass.
You know what I mean, don’t you? These are the outfits I wouldn’t be caught dead in for a class let alone be photographed in them! Heck no.
And I have these options for everything!
Coats, pajamas, undergarments, slacks, blouses, dresses, etc. The madness has got to stop.
So this weekend, I’m going to identify three outfits that I want to wear and feel cute in again. I want to be confident enough to wear them and photographed in them…so you’ll get to see these three outfits one day. I’m going to focus on three areas:
- Workout outfit
- Formal dress
- Work outfit
I want to be comfortable in my own skin and lord knows I have some super cute clothes to do that in. It’s time to set my clothes free!
