Armed with ……Confidence??

Since Wednesday, we have had contractors at our house putting up the framework on our garage addition.  I was home with the kids on Friday (plus my GF 6 year old).  I really needed to work in the garden and it was so hot and muggy.  I have gone out in public before in a tank top but never thin strapped tanks. 

I figured what the hell its just a bunch of construction guys…So out I went like this (sorry cell phone photo):

So I have seen some progress in my arms. Some as in little bit.

This was from Jan (post found here) Friday

ick they are so ugly.  Anyway! As I stated earlier this week I need to go shopping. Thankfully Kohls came thru and sent me a 30% off coupon!!  So I went on Friday night when they have all the big sales! yeah I spent 200bucks but saved 400!  So sweet!

I was in a size 8 in so many things! I love it! NEVER EVER have I been a size 8.  Even when I weight 150 in high school.  So I am loving this but feeling so weird at the same time!  I just don’t know what to do with this body!

I found that most shorts fit my waist but were snug in the thighs .

What do you think?  I don’t know I don’t want to walk down the street while camping and have people talking about like…what the hell is wrong with her wearing those shorts.

So as I gain confidence that I look better and feel better I don’t have the confidence to dress this new body. 

I totally love these capri.  They are levi and so comfy!!!

You are doing so great! I am so happy for you! I can relate to your thoughts about not knowing what to do with your new body. And Kohls is totally my favorite store to shop at now that I have lost a bunch of weight too! Although, I have only bought one thing in an 8! You go girl! How is the running going? I am training for a half marathon in October. Its in Syracuse! You should consider...there is a 12 week training schedule I could send you if you are interested...

Wow, I am amazed by you! Size 8? That is simply awesome! Get the size you're comfortable wearing--both standing and sitting. All clothes must pass the sit test! And who cares if someone doesn't like your choice, right?! You're rocking it!

The capris are awesome, slimming.

Great job.
