I have always been someone who’s weight fluctuates a lot, not from dieting but from a thyroid condition I have. This has resulted in me not liking to go clothes shopping and frequently gaining weight and my clothes not fitting properly. When I’m at my thinner size I don’t mind shopping so much, at my larger size, I hate it. I generally fluctuate between a couple of different sizes, it’s not a huge difference, but enough to not fit into my clothes at the larger size.
I think I’m finally getting my thyroid meds at the right level for me, so this is the perfect time to get my weight under control and start to build a wardrobe that actually fits! I think it will help my self confidence to have clothes for every occasion that fit well. It’s not about being my ideal weight (although that would be even better!) It’s about being ok with myself at the size I am and not waiting for the number on the scale to drop.
