Today is so warm and beautiful! I live in Arkansas where we have just experienced the wettest February on record. This was the first day I’ve seen the sun in two weeks. I took advantage of this beautiful, although muddy, day and played outside with my grandson, Cash. As I was enjoying the first day of what feels like spring, I couldn’t help but think about how this year would be fresh and exciting too. This will be the first spring that I am looking forward to picking out summer clothes. I have always loved fall and winter clothing because it covers me in layers.
I have been thinking a lot about what a grand opportunity it is after weight loss surgery to discover my own style. When you are very over weight you have to wear whatever you can find that fits. While losing the weight you have to find things that aren’t expensive because you won’t be wearing them very long. But when you begin to see a significant loss and you have purged all of your clothing from your closet, it becomes time to start investing in a few new pieces of clothing. When else in your life have you ever been able to completely start over with your wardrobe. Most people never get that opportunity. I am realizing that I don’t want to just buy anything that fits. Now I have a chance to find things that I really like! I am loving the style blogs for the first time in my life…considering they didn’t even exist when I was young. Back in day we had to go to the mall to see the latest fashions. Now everything is at our fingertips.
What are your thoughts on this exciting season of life?
