Clothes and my Changing Body

Hello Beautiful People!

My apologies from the beginning.  I'm spent...so this may turn into a ramble.  I hope not because I've been thinking about this all day. :-)  I had yoga at lunch today though.  And we called it pretzel day.  It felt like a bizarre game of twister.  Then I pushed it hard on the elliptical tonight.  I am, quite frankly, out of gas.

I have two types of outfits.  Type A-Tight pants with a baggy top.  Type B-Baggy pants with a tight top.  You know what I'm talking about?  If I can draw the focus to one area then the eye won't notice the other.  My bottom and my top are both in great shape.  It's the middle that I have to work on.  DON'T LOOK THERE!

For the most part I wear my yoga pants and a baggy t-shirt to the gym.  Last week I switched it up.  I wore some baggy pants and a slammin skin tight 76ers shirt.  It definitely accentuated my boobs and made me feel like my belly was flat.  The bottom sucked and was so not flattering to my tush.  It was a nice change though.  The boys were looking at my girls and not my behind this time.  Go ahead...keep looking :-)

I usually keep around a pair of "fat" jeans to wear with my old navy shirts. I don't want to wear them with pants that are shoving my belly up and out.  This weekend I pulled out my "fat" jeans.  They are in the Good Will pile now.  :-)  I have not worn them in months because they just aren't flattering at all any more.  I have a pair of light colored jeans that are a different cut than my others.  I can wear them with the tighter tops. This morning I reached in to my jeans drawer and thought I grabbed them.  I put them on and got out my belt.  On came the top and when I went to put on my fake Uggs I suddenly realized that they were my "skinny" former skinny jeans (did you catch that?  the style is "skinny" and they used to be my tiny tight jeans).  Well I can wear them as my "fat" jeans with tight tops now.  And I wore them with a belt.  WOW.  I could not get over that.  I can remember when I first got them and they looked painted
on.  Now?  Well I can grab a handful of jean under my butt.  

I have a project for this weekend.  Next week I have an interview for an internal position at work.  We have been Business Casual (jeans) for a couple of years now.  I have some nice business clothes, but I can guarantee that they don't fit me right anymore.  I have been hesitant to buy anything dressy because I am shrinking.  It's a good problem to have.  I will need to try on my clothes this weekend and see what I can pull off.  I think I may have a decent pair of pants and may just need a blouse.  I'll let you know how it goes.

When I was thinking about that it made me wonder about my shorts for this summer.  I have a feeling that I will be blowing right past the good fit of most of my shorts. I may need to pull them out this weekend just to see how they look.  I kind of get a giggle at the thought of getting a new summer wardrobe.  I better get this promotion.  I will probably have to replace most of my clothes :-)

Before I go for the night, I wanted to give you an update.  My blog is no longer being blocked for it's racy content.  hahaha.  Thanks Ken!
