Pre-Kid clothes

I'll be the first one to admit that these pictures aren't the greatest quality. It's kinda horrible actually. And posting these pictures serves as a reminder that I'm not there yet! You put on clothes you couldn't fit into previously and you feel so good, the reflection in the mirror is pretty good too. But then, get your 5 year old to take a straight on shot of you in bad lighting and you realize...ya, not that great.

But, this picture does serve the purpose it was taken for. Here I am, standing in my living room in clothes that I wore before any of my children were a twinkle in my eye. Yes, pre-kid clothes! I'm about 10 lbs away from where I was when I got pregnant 6 years ago with my oldest son. The pants (size 14), admittedly are a tad snug and the waistline is high. That's what was in 7 years ago, I guess. And the white shirt underneath is a 2007 addition. The sweater's a little short for my liking.

I'm a month away from going shopping. Yes, I decided that for Christmas this year I get new clothes. So, that's what I'll be doing. I have to buy one less pair of pants though. My goal is to be at 203...6.9 lbs away. Should be do-able, but we'll see. Hopefully I'll be a solid 14 by then. That's what all the Pilate's are for. I'll let you know if it works.
