I think the last time I wore shorts was in 2001 at my family’s beach cabin. I remember getting the pictures back from that trip and thinking “oh my god I will NEVER wear shorts again!” This is true, because I have not worn shorts since then, almost 10 years ago! There are many things about my body shape that Im pleased with: medium size boobs, a smaller waist, hips, a little bit of an ass. And then there are things I dont like: LEGS LEGS LEGS! Yes I hate my legs! They are chubby and dimpled and pale! eeew! Im pretty sure no amount of weight loss will ever make them pretty. In the summer I sport mostly capris, or jeans rolled up or skirts. No shorts!
To be honest, I dont even hate the look of shorts. Some people look adorable in shorts! I’m even a fan of the really short shorts and high heal look! But for me…nope!
Last night I was at the mall finishing up some christmas shopping and stopped in at the GAP where they had some old summer clearance they were selling for 97 cents! One item included girls boxer shorts. I bought them without trying them on. They are kinda cute and pink and nice to sleep in. I took pictures of myself this morning (because I dont trust mirrors) and I have to say, although my legs are still ugly as sin, things are looking a little better. I though I would do a little comparison shot for you. The first pic (for dramatic effect) is from June about 12 pounds lost. The second is from this morning at 60+ pounds lost (no makeup and crazy hair!) Enjoy!
Im really hoping by summer that I will be thin enough (and tan enough) to maybe rock a pair of shorts. We will see!
