I have a confession. I bought these shorts back in the beginning of June but I haven’t worn them until now. Why? They were too tight. They “fit” in the sense that I could button them but I knew they were supposed to be looser in the thigh area. Sigh, that area is the bane of my existence. Anyway, so what I am trying to say, these shorts were one of my goals this summer. Huh? Basically what I am trying to say it that I was too fat for these before and I lost a little bit of weight. Just a small goal but it was to fit into these shorts before the end of summer.
This is the perfect introduction into something that is going to be coming up on my blog. I am teaming up with Callie and we are going to talk about our college weight loss struggles. I try to keep non-fashion related things to only the weekends so over the next few weekends Callie and I will be sharing our personal struggles, victories and what we are doing to combat college weight gain.
I haven’t lost a lot of weight but I have started training and have gone paleo. So far so good. I have a very specific goal with a realistic date but I’ll reveal all of that later on in the series. This isn’t just a “Oh I worked out and lost weight” series. No, this is the dirty, nitty-gritty stuff about weight loss that no one wants to talk about. I feel like I am baring my soul during these posts so please know I am going to be so brutally honest about my struggles.
I hope that you will read the series and will find them to be a great encouragement for those of you who are in college, or out of college, and struggling. I feel you. Set small goals. One of those small goals was to get into these shorts. And bam, it may have taken all summer but I am in them!
