Sometimes all you need is a little splash of color
One thing I can say about weight loss surgery is that you definitely feel brighter. Because of that you tend to dress brighter….at least that’s how it happened for me. Weight loss has increased my confidence levels so much. I have found a new love for shopping clothes, shoes, accessories any and everything.🛍 I’ve always had a thing for shopping but it was mainly therapeutic. Prior to surgery my closet didn’t know what colors or patterns were. If I had any colorful items in my closet before VSG it came from the hubbs.
Last year before surgery I would have never!
I say that about a lot of things now😂. Colors usually attract attention so I was never one who wanted to wear colors and bright things. After about 6 months post-op the self confidence skyrocketed. I found myself shopping and buying all kinds of stuff. I begin to test out colors and patterns trying to get out of the boring and plain.
The hubbs actually gifted me a shopping spree for meeting one of my weight loss goals. I walked into a clothing store and walked out with 4 overstuffed bags of clothes. I started collecting shoes and all! I actually get excited nowadays about trying things on. I won’t wear things that don’t have some form of color on them. I feel like my personality on the outside should match my personality and how I feel inside.
I have already broken my closet shelf and had to have it re enforced. At this rate I’m going to need a new closet system. But that is a problem that I do not mind having. I am enjoying the benefits of weight loss. It’s a whole new level of self care. 😍
