it’s been a while since i’ve done an weight-loss outfit post.
and since it’s #TransformationTuesday i figured why not?!
you can see the same outfits (minus a few) from may 2014.
i accidentally got rid the black dress with the buttons (whoops), as well as the pink shorts with the blue stripped shirt…apparently i forgot about posting my weight-loss journey progress.
and yes, the fancy dress STILL HAS NOT been hemmed; i guess i just haven’t had the occasion to wear it (so why did i buy it?!?!) haha!
i’m very happy of the progress i’ve made.
so far, i’m about 65 lbs down…and it has been a challenge.
i’m working on another 15-20lbs and it has proved to be difficult.
between being sick a lot already this year (WHY IMMUNE SYSTEM, WHY?!?!), traveling, and not being as consistent as i would like i’ve lost around 2 lbs. -__-
i’m restructuring my diet, trying more challenging and intense workouts, and trying to get some accountability within this area to push me past this “maintaining slump”.
so here is where i am.
still working hard.
still eating some chocolate here and there (i know, i know it is so delicious!).
still learning to love my body through transition.
but i won’t stop.
i’m a fighter.

how the clothing is fitting:
-the red dress: hangs off of me now if i’m honest. i still wear it because i love it, but it is always slipping off my shoulders and hanging really baggy around my thighs.
– the black dressy dress: a lot looser. i honestly won’t be able to wear this once i hit goal weight, and that makes me a little sad because i love it so much
– stripes and workout pants: obviously, huge. the workout pants kept sliding off during a workout last week and the shirt is basically a sleep shirt now, no complaints there 😉
– my high school chain pants: i love them. my gosh i still love them; and will fully admit i’ve worn them out in public, once.
and just in case you wanted a little last year/this year progress shots here you go.
i will admit, the challenger in me is frustrated by the lack of more progress in between these pictures.
it’s been almost a year, i wanted to have ALL of the weight off – but i didn’t.
life happened, vacations happened, injuries (LOTS) happened, and i really am making this into a lifestyle change, not just a fad or a few month decision.
i want to live healthy and strong.
i want my body to be challenged.
i want to grow and see gains and see progress not just in clothing and numbers on a scale, but in how i love myself and pour that love out onto others.
