I always get so excited when a new season is approaching. It doesn’t matter if it’s spring, summer, winter or fall — everything feels a bit new. As the weather starts to get warm coming into late spring and summer, that’s my cue to switch out my fall/winter wardrobe to my spring/summer one. I rearrange my shoes, bringing out the sandals front and center, move my summer dresses to an easier to access spot in my closet, and decide which items I want to keep and which ones I want to toss. summer dresses This year as I was trying on my warmer weather wardrobe, there was a slight problem. Everything was just tight enough to be uncomfortable and to not look like I wanted it to. My jeans didn’t button, my dresses and skirts hugged my hips tighter than I would like and I didn’t feel 100% comfortable in much of anything.

I’ve never been one to obsess over my weight and I’d like to say I have a healthy body image. But when I try on clothes I love and spent good money on, I know I have two choices: buy a new wardrobe or lose a little bit of weight. I’m opting to lose some weight and instead of stressing over all of the ways to do so, I’ve teamed up with Medifast® to try their Summer Shake Up™ Kit. medifast summer shakeup kit-02 I have pesky pounds to lose so I can feel great this summer and comfortably wear all of my clothes. I also just ordered a beautiful bathing suit and I’m looking forward to lazy days by the pool, feeling good in my new purchase. It’s not about a number to me; meaning I don’t have an ideal weight in mind, but instead…an ideal way that I feel. And feeling confident inside and out is incredibly important to me.
