DAY#337 - Motivation(part 2)
So where else do I go for some motivation? Kohls. Yup Kohls is my new closet. It used to be that once a month int he early stages of my diet I would just crack open my closet and try on some of my older smaller clothes for inspiration. However, I have run out of small clothing in my own closet. I can now wear everything that lives in my closet with ease.
I now consider Kohls my new closet. Call me crazy but once a month I drop by Kohls for 15 minutes, grab a few sizes of jeans & shirts and try them on. I did that this past week for an extra pick me up. It is fun to try on a new size and discover it fits and also challenging to put on a new pair of jeans and have them be a bit snug.
Currently my jeans are a size 36 so i ran in and grabbed up a size 32, 33 & 34 and also a Large shirt and took over the men's dressing room. What did I find? I could wear all the jeans, but 32 were a bit tight. If i were gonna buy myself some jeans today I would go for the 33s. I can wear size 33 jeans. WOOOHOOO how awesome is that? and the size large shirt? yeah it fit okay. Will another drop of a few more pounds put me comfortably into 32s? We shall see. My stop at Kohls was a good motivator for me.
