Two big milestones


I did something today that I hate and avoid at all costs. Something I hate so much that I haven’t done it in 2 years. I went clothes shopping. I even tried on clothes in the store! Normally, I buy the size I think I am, as well as a size bigger and a size smaller, and I take them home and try them all on, and take back what doesn’t fit. Today, I was brave enough to go to the dressing rooms and try on the clothes in the store.

On top of that, I haven’t worn pants in years. I only wear dresses and skirts because I feel like pants show off my fat. However, I bought a bike yesterday and I know it’s way easier to ride a bike in pants than a skirt, (or at least the floor length skirts I wear) so I bought some pants today. Not just pants, I bought skinny jeans. I can’t believe I did, but I did. Hopefully I will have the courage to actually wear them.
