I’m going to be frank, I’ve never really had an issue with my weight, mainly because I’ve spent most of my life in a dance studio. In high school and college I went from class to the studio. I’ve pretty much been 5’7″ and 120 pounds since my awkward phase in middle school. So when I had A things changed…A LOT. I gained a pretty significant amount of weight, as one does when growing a human being inside, and truthfully it didn’t bother me until I had my shower two weeks before giving birth. Trying to find something to wear was a nightmare and my friends who I hadn’t seen in months were now going to see me bloated and just a mess. But it went off without a hitch and everyone told me how glowing I was. Once A arrived we were so focused on her and my mental state my weight wasn’t even on our radar. And I say WE because the person that has been my biggest supporter and cheerleader is Tyler!
So here I am almost two years after having A and I’m just now fitting into my old clothing again. I took my time and just sort of let things happen naturally. Have I had moments where I see a picture of myself and I cry because it’s not what use to be? Of course. But I’ve learned to focus on how I feel on the inside and not what I see in the mirror. If I wake up feeling great I go with it and keep that feeling, which is usually fueled by exercise. I also realize that it’s time to stop changing for clothing, clothing needs to work for YOU. Which brings me to LuLaRoe! I was first introduced to this company by my friend Kathryn not long after she started her business. I heard wonderful things from a few friends and decided to get my mom a pair of leggings. I figure if she liked them, I definitely would! When Kathryn approached me about trying some of the clothes out for my blog I jumped at the chance, and I’m glad I did. It’s true what they say about the leggings, they are buttery soft for sure. But I have to say my favorite item she sent was a Julia dress. It was so versatile and I absolutely love wearing it! I’m currently on the lookout for some mommy & me leggings, because this mom loves twinning!
If you are a fellow LuLaRoe lover I’d love to hear what your favorite item is! And since we are all looking for a Unicorn I’ve linked Kathryn’s Facebook page here –> Kathryn Driskell LuLaRoe VIPs
