I've all but banned T-shirts from my daily attire (with the exception of when I'm cleaning the house.
All my life I've worn t-shirts that were even a size larger than they could/should have been to hide the fat and hide the arms. Even though I still have fat and still have big arms, I don't want to wear them. Maybe it's because they hide the progress, but really I think it is because they make me FEEL fat. Obese. Like I should hide behind the fabric of a large, shapeless t-shirt. I do have 2 t-shirts that are more fitted that I will wear on occasion. But other than that, my t-shirt drawer remains barely opened.
The summer has been spent wearing sleeveless tops. I've got the best tan I've had in my entire (almost) 37 years of life. And you know what? I've only been complimented all summer, not ridiculed for showing my fat arms. I used to admire fat girls who wore tank tops and short skirts. Because they seemed to have a self confidence that I lacked. Losing this weight is giving me so much self confidence.
Are you hiding in your stretchy fabrics? I challenge you to break out of it! Leave the elastic bands behind! (The only elastic bands I have are in my workout pants not day to day clothes!)
Have a Fabulous Friday! :)
