When A Shirt Reminds You Of Your Progress


I’ve had this shirt in my closet for years. The last time I wore it I weighed about 20 pounds more than I do now. I grabbed it today really quick and put it on not realizing that it actually looks like a dress. LOL! This is how I used to dress though, hiding behind baggy clothing so nobody could see my insecurities. I dreaded getting dressed each day and had zero confidence. It breaks my heart to remember how I felt when I looked in the mirror. That was definitely my rock bottom though and I haven’t looked back since I did my first Insanity workout.

Putting this shirt on was a great reminder to see how far I’ve come since I started my journey years ago. I’ve lost physical and emotional weight, and gained physical and emotional strength as well. I’m not where I want to be just yet but I’m much closer than I was. It’s cool to see the more confident Melissa under the shirt this time.

I may wear more form fitting shirts but I will always still wear my pants up high. LOL! #DontJudgeMe
