It occurred to me today that I still carry around a "fat Jen" habit.
When I was rocking a size 20+, not only did my butt blow up to an overly ample size, my formerly teeny-tiny boobies did as well. The girls went from a barely there 32B to an outrageous 40DD -- now they are nearly back to their previous size. Disclaimer: after losing 100+lbs and nursing Lola, they do no resemble the same boobies they did when I was 25 but this is another boobage post all together!
Anyway--When I was heavy, I would double up on the sports bras, wear a tight tank top over that and then cover the whole deal with a tee shirt. At the time, I needed that extra support to keep things in place. These days, not so much.
Today was the same as any other day I was dressing for my easy bike, easy run then let's go swim day I put on the sports bra THEN the fitted tech tank and a tech tee over that. While changing out of all this sweaty gear and into my swim suit it dawned on me that the twins did not require all of this layering anymore.
What am I trying to do? flatten 'em out even more?
There is nothing there to support so why am I wearing so much?
So today as I dressed up for my afternoon run date with my bestie, Dawn and I only put on my sleek tech tank with the built in shelf bra. That's it. Nothing else (well, bottoms of course! and shoes) but I don't need to wear all these tops that are just restricting my movements and making me uncomfortable.
Today I will run in just this tank. I am considering it a celebration.
Do or did you ever do some crazy layering??
