Tangible Reminders.

When I started losing weight, I never imagined I would lose this much. I started out just wanting to be 199lbs and a size 14-16 thinking I would be happy. Never in a million years did I imagine I would have made such a drastic change. So, with that being said, I got rid of my fat clothes, not thinking I would like to have a pair to look back on.

So today, I was walking through the Good Will store looking for some good finds and just happened to catch my eye on the plus size section and decided to take a walk back in time for a minute. I grabbed a size 22 just to see what they actually looked like and where I used to be. For $6, I decided to purchase them and keep them in my closet as a tangible reminder of where I will never return.

Are you ready to see the pic??


KJB Tip: Don't get rid of ALL of your starting weight clothes. Keep one pair for a reminder of where you were and where you will never return.

That's all for tonight. Just wanted to share.

xoxo

P.s. I love and appreciate all your comments!! You guys rock my world.
