Got your attention! Yes, size does matter. 😉 Sizes drive me nuts sometimes-dresses and tops and pants. I have been defined for many years now as a 3X or a 26/28 size. How depressing. I’m sure many others are in that same size or even larger. It’s not a fun place to be and anyone who says they are happy there is flat out lying to you and themselves. I did recently see some post about a teen who’s mom is feeding her pizza and cokes to keep her large for social media purposes. Here’s a link if you can stomach it- 400 Pound Feeding Model… It’s almost child abuse in my eyes. The daughter said she’s happy and is 400 pounds right now and is working to be 500 pounds by the time she is 30! It makes me want to cry and it makes me want to shake the crap out of her mom and say “you are killing your daughter with food!” I know most people don’t have that love for being large and I definitely don’t. It has been a hate my body relationship on and off all of my life, but I’m finally starting to love my body and through all the hard work. I’m finding out what I really can accomplish and it’s not so hard to look at myself in the mirror at Zumba or the gym anymore. Today, I am wearing a size 18/20 pants from Cato to work and I can fit fairly well into a 1X! It’s a great feeling to be going down in clothing sizes and it’s a true mark of where I’m headed and what I have accomplished. I now spend time thinking of what it will feel like to fit into a size 10 or 12 and I have NEVER done that in my life! I was hoping to ever see a 16 again but that is my next size down. I for the longest time have had a personal goal to be able to shop anywhere I want to buy clothes. I even fit into an extra large top in a fancy boutique the other day and it felt SO good! I didn’t buy it yet, because it still showed my tummy some, but very, very soon I will buy it.
