The Things You Forget

Ok y’all….you know I used to weigh more than I do now.  But some days I forget.
I was looking through old pics trying to find a Throwback Thursday picture for today on IG (Follow me!  Brittneydeanne)…and I saw some things I forgot about.
These were all extremely happy fun times…but when I look back at them, I just think “Life would have been SO much more enjoyable if I didn’t have to worry about fitting into my pants and if I had the energy to do anything.”  I was SO tired when I was more overweight. And there were definitely more closet meltdowns.  And sometimes nowadays, I discount the victories I’ve had in becoming healthier.  
Let’s go down memory lane…
A wedding we went to together in the summer of 2008. That was a plus size dress.  I remember buying it from Target.
Our first Razorback game during my campus visit in the fall of 2008. That shirt was an XL.  Now I’m in a medium.  
And our first cruise in December of 2008.  Holy boobs, Batman!  I remember ordering that dress for formal night.  It was a size 16 from Ann Taylor.  Now I’m a 10/12.  And my boobs stay where they are supposed to! ha!
 
 Life is so much better on this side.  I wish I could go back and tell 2008 Brittney that it’s hard, but it’s worth it. 🙂
