I try to live a healthy lifestyle. I really do. I lost 30lbs while on the Smart For Life diet. I eliminated salt and sugar and ate lots of lean chicken and fish with vegetables. It was all about clean eating. And cookies, lol.
My hot flashes went away. I had energy. Life was good. All my old clothes, including my Lucky Jeans from pre kids, fit me. I finally had my nice wardrobe back and threw away my maternity dresses and elastic skirts.
But everyone swore that these comfy, loungy, amazing clothes would change my life.
So, I bought a pair to “support a friend.” As I was cashing out, there was a section that offered free clothes if you host a party. I’m in!
Well really all I heard was “free clothes.” LuLaRoe clothes. And one size! Perfect!
At this point I had already gained about 5 lbs. Then I started eating the pistachios my father brought back from Greece, all three 1lb bags in one month.
I had good intentions. I was even counting the pistachios, trying to pace myself. It’s all about portion control, right?
Then my LuLaRoe leggings arrived. I LOVED them. They were really like wearing a second skin. I started to live in them. At the same time my clothes became tight and stopped fitting me already.
My diet started going downhill. I was back to eating too much salt. Then a dessert here and there. Then just “a little dessert” turned into a whole bag of Cadbury Mini Easter Eggs within one week. Carbs became my T.V. partner every night.
Before you knew it, I had gained 20lbs back. No, it wasn’t from wearing LuLaRoe. I just said that. It’s a joke. My girlfriends and I joke about it. I wore leggings to Thanksgiving Dinner for two reasons; first, nothing else fit and second, I wanted to eat without my pants getting tight. The leggings facilitated my food addiction, per se. But they did not make me gain weight. I did. I made me gain weight. I knew full well what I was doing in the kitchen at 10pm looking for chips.
Now, I’m back to eating healthy and feeling great. I proudly wear leggings now and will wear leggings after I lose the weight. The relationship I have with food has nothing to do with leggings. I had to make the decision to gain back control. Self control and portion control. I went back to Smart For Life to get back on track. It works for me, as long as I adhere to the maintenance plan, which I did not last time I lost the weight.
With that being said, I love LuLaRoe leggings. They are comfy and I think it’s great that mompreneurs everywhere are getting on the LuLaRoe bus. Rock on ladies!
