Am I Losing Weight or Are Sizes Getting Bigger? Featured

Authors: shapedotCom WeightLossDiary

I went clothes shopping recently since most of my pre-weight loss journey clothes are too loose for me now. I grabbed several medium-size dresses at a local department store, happy that I was no longer a size large or extra large.

After trying on all of the outfits, I was shocked to discover that the medium-sized items were too big for me and I could actually fit into a small! I was so surprised that I immediately started rationalizing it in my head. I told myself that all designers make clothing differently and these particular dresses must run large, explaining why I was able to fit into a size small.

But then I paused and thought, why not just be happy in this moment and proud of myself for how far I’ve come? I have worked my butt off (literally) to get to the point where my old clothes don’t fit and I need to shop for smaller sizes. It’s enjoyable, exciting, and a little bit intimidating. But I’m trying to own it! I think my life coach, Alison Miller, would tell me to stop and allow myself to feel good in the moment. And that’s exactly what I am doing.
