What Happens?

So, what happens when you spend a year and a half working towards something and finally pass your goal weight?

Well, duh! 
You go shopping!!!!

On Saturday my supportive, amazing husband agreed to take me to my favorite outlet malls to finally spend all that birthday money I've been holding on to! I've waited and waited for this moment! 

Ryan's cousin agreed to be my shopping buddy for the day. I've always loved Old Navy's stuff so we absolutely had to stop there first! 

Until this weekend, there has never been a time in my life that I've walked into a dressing room with piles of clothes and loved every single piece I tried on. 


When I was bigger, I'd find these cute clothes and try to shove my butt into the latest fashions. Most of the time I walked away empty handed and depressed. That totally didn't happen this time. 


After a little break, we set out again. It's been so long since I have actually enjoyed clothes shopping that I was really kinda lost. I don't really know what kind of things I love anymore. We stopped by Gap and I realized I still really love anything they have! 




We've got a beach trip coming up so I had to have some cute options for vacation. 



When we finally got done, we were all kinda like this:


I got so much for my money by going to outlet stores. I ended up saving over $160 on all of my clothes. 



I have plenty of options, right??


Now, that's how you celebrate losing 28% of your body weight! 


My sunglasses are Chanel. They were actually given to me and I love them like crazy!

  10. You looked uh-mazing! In all of those outfits. I think my favs were the black and white strip top with the jeans and the pink shirt with the white pants. Those were perfection on you. How absolutely wonderful to go into a store and love the way your body looked in all of those clothes. Way to go Wendy!

  13. Hi, you look great. I have been sick for ten years; on and off steriods and medications; blood clot, replace both knees, etc. You inspire me. I have to lose 70 pounds. I have been ordered off my feet because one of my knees is swelling. You know any good chair exercises?

    Thanks.

    1. For most of my journey I did not work out at all. I controlled it all through my diet, so that is completely possible for you too. Once I dropped a lot of the weight, my body cooperated so that I felt like I could work out. My health issues disappeared after the first 20 pounds and my energy slowly came back.

      If I could recommend a DVD for people with health issues, I would absolutely tell you to check out T-Tapp Rehab. You can find it here:
      https://store.t-tapp.com/products/T%252dTapp-MORE-Rehab-Program-DVD.html

      It is designed for people with back and knee issues or arthritis. I have done T-Tapp in the past and I am absolutely blown away by the programs. I'd also look into the dry skin brushing articles there too. They also have a floor exercise DVD that I have heard is very good as well.
