I've had a bit of a revelation that's somewhat related to this Shred endeavor.
The outfit I put on for work yesterday made me look and feel FAT. Innocently enough, the shirt was a simple cotton one from Gap outlet. Kinda loose and flowy in both the waist and the sleeves.
I changed, opting for a much tighter-fitting sleek black tee shirt (also from Gap outlet).
And I looked better. Like less of a chubber. Who knew? The tighter shirt made me feel better. And look thinner.
Now, I am one who normally hates wearing anything tight or clingy. As my friends know all too well (they make fun of me all the time), if a size 6 fits, I buy size 8. If the size 8 fits, I buy it in size 10. I like having that "wiggle room", you know?
Maybe I need to rethink that philosophy...
