Chunky Sweater Lovin

This may just be the softest sweater ever made!
This may just be the softest sweater ever made!

I remember being younger and my mom telling me ‘Hill, you need to watch what you eat. As you get older. Its harder and harder to loose the weight. Well, let me tell you ladies. This is the absolute truth. I remember being able to eat anything I wanted: ice cream for dinner, cereal at 1 am, pancakes for lunch, etc. and not gain a single pound.  Now, everything goes directly to my ass.  Its like my ass says’here it comes’ and just sucks up all the food as soon as it goes into my body.  In high school, I was about 119 pounds.  I was always thin.  When I got pregnant, I was a size 4 and only went up to a size 6.  As a matter of fact, when I was pregnant, I still wore my regular jeans, I just used a belly band since I could’t button them. Now, I am at my largest weight. I am not fat, I am not skinny…I am somewhere in between.  I am realizing what my mama said to me all these years was absolutely true.  I mean, I have this pouch under my stomach {vision a kangaroo} that I honestly didn’t know existed.  I mean I knew it was there but I didn’t know it could get larger. I will pause for a brief minute to allow you to chuckle or look down at the pouch below your stomach so you can envision what I am talking about.



So, because I am uncomfortable, I have decided to do something about it.  I am joining AmeriKick. They have just opened one by my house and I heard so many good things about it so I have decided to be like Nike…. and just DO IT!  I will definitely let y’all know how it goes.  I am kind of excited about this new adventure and hopefully getting healthier all while getting back to my old size,



So, since I have this pouch (not really a pouch but it would be cool if it was and I could store stuff in it…haha), I am no longer wearing tops that are fitted.  I am looking for pieces that are a looser fit. If I do wear a fitted top, I am definitely throwing a cardi over top. I mean really!!!  If I didn’t, and I saw me out, I would most definitely talk about myself. This sweater from Free People (one of my all time favorite brands) is extremely soft and comfortable.  When choosing sweaters, it is all about comfort.  I don’t want to have a big sweater on. Stiff and bulky are simply uncomfortable.  Sweaters that can double as a coat on cold days are key!!  With this sweater, you can throw on a long sleeve tee fitted (like this) or a turtleneck (like this) and leave the coat at home.  



Louis Vuitton bag from Bag Borrow or Steal which I will tell you all about in a separate post. Needless to say I am obsessed with them and will forever use them.  Forever ever? Forever ever!!!!
