Lose the Freshman 15: Enjoying a whole new shopping experience

Shopping can be a dreadful experience for many girls. But it can also be a form of therapy to relieve stress.

Today was the first day I’ve been shopping for clothes probably since before this weight loss journey with SELF magazine and the Jump Start Diet started.

The goal? To find the perfect graduation dress.

In the past, when it came to shopping, I would buy the only dress that fit me. Maybe you know how it is. Trying on tons of dresses only to find that this doesn’t fit here or that doesn’t fit there can be quite disheartening.  I’m always relieved just to find that one that fits.

Well, today was quite different. A LOT of dresses fit me. I couldn’t believe it! Things zipped up with no problem. It was incredible.

So, as you may have guessed, I had trouble picking my graduation dress when there were so many to choose from.

In fact, I ended up buying three dresses because I was so excited about how everything was fitting. That may sound a little silly, but I figured with my changing figure, I could use a wardrobe update.

Only thing is…which one is my graduation dress? I figured you guys may be able to help me. I’m leaning toward dress A, but what are your thoughts? Please leave a comment at the bottom letting me know which dress to wear when I receive my diploma!
