I came across this little meme over at Purplume's Blog and then was lead over to Family of Shorts the creator of this meme. It is all about the journey of trying to shed the muffin top for some skinny jeans. Now skinny jeans aren't really my goal, but getting rid of the muffin top would truly be welcomed.
From what I can tell this is not a weight loss program but more a support group for the journey.
Shortmama gives out a subject to write about or fun thing to participate in.
This week she gave a link to a cool site to create a collage of clothes. I had fun doing it. www.polyvore.com the registration is free.
The topic this week is: we talk about and show how we would dress differently if we were not overweight.
I thought this was interesting cause I have noticed that my weight does affect my style..ALOT. It is all about comfort on this body! I can't even remember the last time I struggled into a pair of pantyhose or the last time I worn dress shoes. A dress...well lets just say, those are reserved for weddings and funerals and are instantly peeled off ASAP! It is a body issue just as much as a comfort issue. When you have thunder thighs, problems occur and that leads to major discomfort (especially in the Texas heat). There is also the tomboy factor. A clutsy tomboy who looks like she should be on horseback, has no business in a dress nor dress shoes.
BUT oh how I wish I could dress like this and be comfortable enough in my own skin to think that I could pull it off.
Now if you put the long shorts with the floral top, that is about as dressed up as I get now-a-days. I am mostly a jeans, capri's and t-shirt kinda girl.
But a girl can dream of the perfect wardrobe, can't she? You know it is funny, but I think that even dreams can be waaaay out there, cause I am not truly convinced that if I had the bod for those dresses, that I would actually wear them. It's not like I live the lifestyle for such clothing. Some dreams are nice to have even if your not sure they are very practical.
I do parade around in the "House" in similar clothes as the gray top and jean capri's, try NOT to picture it. So sorry for the brain injury!
I think that concludes the embarrassing truth.
BUT look at those clothes, aren't they dreamy!
Try out that website, it truly was fun to create the collage.
