A Skinny Dress and Couples Therapy!

So my lovely Pro has been more or less two sizes smaller than me throughout our weight loss journey. This has been a huge PLUS because that means she gives me her pants that she grows out of just in time for me to start shrinking into them.  Pro (that skinny bitch!) decided to skip a whole size recently so now there are no pants for me to work into…damn you Pro! When I started my weight loss journey I had a fair amount of SKINNY CLOTHES that I needed to shrink into (my New York Dress FITS! My Red Pea Coat FITS!) but now I can fit into all of them and most of them are too big. At this point I have nothing really to shrink into (Kelli if you are reading this, save any pants you have and give them to me in March when I come!) so I’m lacking in motivation.  I actually heard on the radio around Christmas time, that reasearch shows the best way for women to lose weight is to buy an outfit in a smaller size. You see I LOVE LOVE LOVE clothes! It’s probably my biggest motivation in Weight loss, fitting into more clothes! I would be a crazy Lindsey Lohan Clothing Hoarder if I could!

Tonight Mr. Gaunt and I went to Savers and I found the perfect SKINNY dress! It is actually…..hold your breath….a size ELEVEN! Yes that is right 11! I case you didn’t know, I do NOT wear an eleven! In fact a size 10 is my goal size, so eleven sounds pretty damn good. The dress currently kind of fits, but its tight, too tight to wear in public….panty lines anyone? I would love for this dress to fit comfortably this summer, its perfect for Mr. Gaunt and I’s July photo shoot! When I put it on the first thing Mr. Gaunt said was “Its kind of like a casual wedding dress” which it is, in a beachy sort of way. I really love it.

So that is my current goal, to make this dress fit!

In other news Mr. Gaunt and I have decided to go to couples therapy! Why you ask? Are we having problems? Well no not really, but there are definitely things we could stand to work on. The last year has definitely been our best year yet, but there are definitely the occasional communication struggles. Also Mr. Gaunt and I plan to get married in the near-ish future, and I want to make sure we are discussing the right things: Kids, Raising a family, jobs, roles…etc. So that when we are married we don’t suddenly realize we have completely different ideas on how things should go. Anyway we are actually going to a therapist that Mr. Gaunt and his mom have both gone to a lot in the past (although not in a few years) this pleases me because he will already know a lot about Mr. Gaunt’s family dynamic and his relationship with his mom. I’ve never been to therapy, but I sure do love to talk about myslef…ha! So we have a tentative appoint for next thursday. I will keep you updated on how this goes!

Oh and I leave you with some dresses that were cute but I didnt purchase.

  1. i really like the yellow and black one! SMART idea about the therapy, i hope you find that you’re perfect for each other 🙂 can’t wait for your trip to bellingham!

  2. You look so good in all those dresses! I think you will love therapy, and so grown-up of you guys to work out the issues before the next step. I love you guys!

  3. Wow Morgan, maybe it’s just me but I think that white dress DOES fit you NOW! It looks awesome! What is “Savers”? I am such a clothes whore/der too, but I am sooo poor, I need to find a good place to find cheap, cute clothes in Portland – I don’t know where any good spots are except for Target. Anyhoo, you look great! Oh, I love therapy, I’m sure you will too! xo

  4. I have to agree it looks like the white dress fits you wonderfully right now! I know there are probably issues with sitting :), but dang girl you look HOT HOT HOT!! Congrats on all of your current weight loss, I can only aspire to reach such a goal.

    • aww thanks! Yes, It looks fine because I made sure to suck it all in and stand straight, but TRUST me that things wouldnt be quite so pretty sitting down, or even leaning sideways…lol!

      • I know exactly how that goes. What I hate most about being in a wheelchair is that something will look amazing on me standing up, but then I sit down and it looks like I poured myself into it! Considering I’m sitting most of the time, my wardrobe choices are limited, at least until I lose the weight.
