There it is! My Lululemon hoodie! I haven't worn it in probably about 5 years.
Actually my Mother-In-Law found it for me when she was cleaning :) It has been found none-the-less.
Even when I bought it, it was a little snug. But, I loved it because it was my Lululemon hoodie! I wore it as often as I could. The color (which in real life has a little bit more green to it) was beautiful, the fabric is thick, the sleeves are long... ahhh. I love this sweat-shirt!
Seeing this shirt has brought back some memories of when I used to wear it. I remember feeling fat back then (I was a size 12/14 190-200lbs). While I was larger than I had been at my lightest, I wasn't obese... yet. I remember walking to and from work, it probably lasted all of two weeks as work was about an hours walk with a giant hill.
I sit here now, and laugh at that girl that wore my lululemon hoodie (me). I thought I was giant and that 40lbs or even just 20lbs was too much to conquer. I would exercise, but then eat more and get disappointed when I didn't lose weight. I would fall off the wagon and consume lots of high fat, high sugar foods to make myself "feel better". I would consume a good portion of alcohol to do the same. I had lost weight (90lbs) once, but for some reason, I hadn't learned, or adapted well to my new/old non-city life. At this point I had gained about 40lbs back. At the time, I kept looking on how much I failed, not how much I was still ahead. I kept trying and crashing and giving in to my entitlement issues.
My husband is a rail (Sorry hunny if you ready this but you're borderline stick-person). When I met him I went from watching what I ate and running 3x a week, to spending all my time hanging out with him and going out to restaurants. I was so insecure, I didn't want to take the time to take care of myself because I was a stage 5 clinger. A previous relationship had ended REALLY REALLY bad, and left me in a state where I had little to no trust in men any more. (Thanks to my husband who stuck with me and my sack of issues all this time, see I told you I'd get better!)
I am happy to say I have worked REALLY hard on all those issues and don't have a problem taking a little time for myself, or
letting allowing not having an issue when my husband wants to get out without me.
Anyhow, bottom line is I found my hoodie, and I WILL fit it again!! I'll just be a better me than the lady who wore it last time ;)
