Time to linkup with Lex and KTJ for this week's NSVs. And, because Kadi challenged me to take more selfies, prepare yourself.
This week has definitely been about changes... in a good way. In the past when I've lost weight, I never really lost enough to notice any significant changes. But this time is definitely different. Here's what I'm noticing:
- My jean jacket buttons comfortably! I've had this jacket since... maybe sophomore or junior year of high school (which I know because I wore it in my senior pictures). Well, I obviously love the damn thing, but it was starting to get pretttttty snug [read: completely un-buttonable] last fall. Now, that bad boy buttons up no problem. VICTORY!

- My booty is smaller. I didn't realize this was something that needed to shrink so much, but it was definitely the first to go. All my jeans looked like I was walking around with a load in my pants before I bought new ones. Speaking of jeans...
- My new "skinny" jeans are now too big! I bought them about 8 weeks ago, and they were too tight at the time, but I knew I'd keep losing so they'd fit. Now, this happens:
|If I have a "last straw" picture, this left one is it. I'm cringing.|
|So much less chin!|
- Lastly, I got to wear these babies when it was abnormally warm on Monday. It has since proceeded to rain the rest of the week. Oh, Chicago, never stop being you.
|Shoe selfies in cabs. That's a thing, right?|
I have to say, I've been in a much better mood this week since making it a goal to stop being such a negative miserable person like I was last week. I think I just might trick myself into believing it ;)
What are your NSVs this week?
