I decided to rummage through my closet and find a few items to deem as my “Goal Clothing”.
Goal Clothing #1 White Shirt:
I can actually fit into this shirt right now, but I don’t like how it fits. I would like to be able to wear white and not feel like a bloated whale. It is a size large, but I need to be less than large for it to look right. It isn’t so much that I love the shirt, but I want to be able to wear white.
Overweight+white=no good. That is why this is a goal shirt. I want to look good in white. There will be a day where I don’t hide in my sheltered black tops!
I took out my trusty old measuring tape and did some measuring. For me to be more comfortable in this shirt I need to lose another 9 inches off my belly and 3.5 inches off my arms. We will get there!
Goal Clothing #2 Vintage Like Dress
I am not one for fancy clothing, but when I found this dress at a thrift store I fell in love with it. It is hard to tell from the picture, the dress is a light silver rather than white. I will wear it with a shrug for modesty purposes.
The tag says size 12. I was a size 12 when I bought it and it didn’t fit then. I couldn’t get it zipped all the way and was sucking in for dear life. I bought it as a goal piece. The only problem is I went up instead of down (darn marriage and pregnancies!)
I am guessing the dress is closer to an 8-10.
So again I did some measuring and I need to lose 7 inches on my chest and 5 inches off my ribs for this beauty to be able to zip and to be able to breathe. When I reach my goal weight I plan on going on a special vacation with my husband and I would like to be able to wear this dress on my special trip. I am thinking a cruise may be in order!
Goal Clothing #3 Brown Shorts
At my smallest I would have fit into these shorts. That is why I am setting out to be able to wear this size again. The tag says size 6. I will need to lose 10 inches off of my waist and about 14 inches off my belly. Aiming high really, but I do know it is possible with the right motivation!
So what are some of your goal pieces of clothing? I would love to hear (or see!)!
Where are you going to go, if you don’t shoot for the stars?
