Shopping Spree!

The weekend before last I thew out around $2000 worth of clothes that were just rediculously too big for me. I tried on stuff and my husband said I looked like I was a little girl wearing my Mum's clothes. So last weekend I told my husband that I needed to replace the clothes that I had thrown out. So off we toddled to the shopping mall where I picked out 3 lovely dresses from Jacquie E - 2 of which I can wear for work, and 1 dress which is more of a going out to the races or a wedding sort of dress. Then we were in target and I came out with 2 pairs of pants (size 14) and 2 tops for work. Score!

While it definitely didn't make up for the amount of clothes I threw away earlier... it's a start. And now I get to build my wardrobe gradually for summer! Have already worn one dress to work and people have commented!

Oh yeah, I have also bought some of those "sucky-in" pants, you know.. the ones that go up to your bra line that really hold everything in. I feel like I'm cheating in a way, because those pants really have changed my shape. I am a dress size smaller when I wear those pants. My loose skin on my stomach is getting more and more noticable and I feel more toned when I wear them... but I feel like I'm not my "true" self when I wear them, like I'm cheating!

Weird.

Anyway. Have a great day. 1 more day until the weekend.. YAY!

No way is it cheating. We don't call wearing a bra cheating do we? If I didn't wear a bra, I swear, I would be tucking my titties into the top of my pants!

LOL! No way are those pants cheating. I can't wait until I feel so good in something that I want to wear them to look even better.

And congrats on the shopping spree and the smaller sized clothes! That's awesome.
