Took pics--well, hubby did-- as I find that I need to see in that form to really see.
When I was 300, 280, 250, 240, and so on...I didn't SEE me in a mirror as big as I was in pics. I still don't. So, I can fool myself looking in mirrors that I look hot. I see a pic and see the loose/bulging/hanging skin and I see the good progress, too, but I can't fool myself the way my brain/mirror can.
Hence, the following.
Oh, and thanks to April of 30 by 30 for inspiration to take a jeans pic..as my motivation-jeans have a loooooooooooooooong way to go to fit, as you will see in the last pic in this following series! (And maybe never will, but they were on sale, cheap, so I can always pass them on if they never make it to perfect fit due to all that loose belly/hip/butt skin. I keep the hope, though. :) )
Gotta say, from the look of me in this slip, I need me some shapewear. Regular undies aren't gonna cut it for snug dresses! Anyone use a really good shapewear slip or something that would rock a dress? :D
Here we go:
|the CDCC black lace beaded dress, designer 14 (teeny 14)|
|Doesn't fit from the bottom..goes THIS far only.|
|Let's see how it fits from above...|
|Nope. Only this far. Drats!|
|But it's purdy and it WILL fit. Eventually. Onward!|
|This one goes on, but is a bit snug in the tummy. |
Need to lose a bit for it to fit RIGHT. Maybe 5 to 8 lbs? 10?
Well, if it's in the belly...And I may need heels or a shorter length or both...
|The green one fits! The looser skirt camouflages the belly apron. |
I wanna dance in this one! SO I DO!
|La-la-la...dance, dance...oops, droopy fatwings. Who cares? Lalalalala...|
|Dang. That's as far as the jeans go. |
Skinny jeans on a non-skinny Princess!
We keep working on it. It's all we can do!
