Day 21, Reason 21: Comfortable in My Clothes

I forgot to post yesterday, so today it's a double-header.  Which means I have to think of two reasons, which is getting pretty hard as I enter the last days of this challenge.  I knew it would get hard, but I admit I am really reaching for ideas now.  So here's hoping I think of today's reason while I write yesterday's.

Being comfortable in your clothes is about a lot more than how you look; it's about how to feel.  Waistbands digging into your stomach, bras digging into your back...adjusting skirts and bustlines all day because it just doesn't feel right - those are all the things that tell me I need to get more exercise and eat better.  And they are not about how I look - although that is a part of it - they are mainly about how I feel.

I hate when I am in a place when only yoga pants feel comfortable.  Because while those pants might feel good, they don't look good.  So, in some weird turnaround, I feel better when I can wear my less comfortable clothes, because they fit me right.

Confidence is about feeling good, and when I feel comfortable in the clothes I love, I feel more confident.  Being able to wear the lovely things I own means a lot to me.  Those clothes make me feel confident.  And that's not about being skinny, it's about feeling right in my skin as well as my clothes.

Day 21, Reason 21: To feel comfortable with myself and my clothes.
