Well today I went shopping for new bras. I am pretty big on top so it is always quite a job to find something that fits and also looks good. Decided well I was there to grab a couple tops to work out in. Now I always go big and baggy as I guess I am trying to hide myself behind big clothes. The ladies there talked me into going a size smaller and said I looked better. Blue jeans were on sale. I cannot remember the last time I wore blue jeans without an elastic waist but they helped me find a size that fit me and I was ok with the look and feel. They said they thought it was great that I was going outside my box. I was trying not to look so overwhelmed as I checked out with 2 bras, 3 tops, and 2 blue jeans.

My husband was waiting in the parking lot and when I got in the pickup I just started to cry. The stress of shopping was just too much for me. He said he was prepared for me to be in a bad mood as I usually am after trying on clothes but felt bad that I was crying. I pray that someday I can go shopping and be comfortable with my size and how I look.

    Many of us have felt that way and often still do. It often comes within ourselves. Though I've lost 75 lbs, I'm still self conscious of other things. Remember you're special because you are made in the image of God. Keep your head up.
