#sameshirtdifferentgirl

So yesterday I posted a side by side pic of me from my honeymoon, and in the same shirt yesterday.

I had this terrible affliction when I was at my highest weight called "denial". I would consistently wears shirts that didn't fit me. The good news I guess is that now all of my shirts STILL fit. SO thats a win I guess lol. I just recently had to start buying smaller sized shirts, but really all the old ones fit, just a bit baggy.

Anyhoo, this has given me the unique opportunity of inventing a new hashtag. #sameshirtdifferentgirl. Ok maybe I didn't invent it, and it has been used twice by randos, but it's not WIDELY used so I "coined" it. :D

Same shirt different girl basically is you take a picture wearing the same shirt you did in a before pic, and place them side by side. I think progress is most noticeable while wearing the same clothes, so that's how I want to compare :D

Here are some examples.




I am going to start taking more of these (for the shirts I haven't donated :/) and you should to! If you hoard clothes like I do, this shouldn't even be hard! Just put on the old shirt, snap a selfie (bonus points if its at work lol like mine always are) and hashtag #sameshirtdifferentgirl.

Who knows, maybe it will catch on.

Probably not.

Eh whatever. I just like progress pics! :D

ALSO! On Monday I am starting the 21 Day Fix! I can't wait to get started and share how it goes! Yes, I am taking a short break from P90X3, I just want to get my eating figured out and this is how I am gonna do it!

Have an awesome weekend!

  2. Wonderful motivation wearing those clothes that we once "thought" fit! I'll have to see what I have still been holding onto and do the same!

  5. Way to go! Pictures are a great way to track your progress. When I was trying to shed pounds I took a bikini picture every morning so I could track progress. I never got to "bikini beach body" but I liked seeing my efforts pay off. Keep up the good work, you look great.

  8. I love that idea :-) I think it must be so personally validating to see such HUGE changes in how you look in a particular outfit. I really like that idea, if I had allowed any pictures when I was at my heaviest I would definitely do that, but I'm going to try and do this with what I do have! Excellent idea!
