I didn't want to spend another dime on clothes and at the time I owned very little clothing. Finding clothes in those sizes that make you feel good are few and far between, not to mention expensive. It's really not the clothes that you don't feel good in, it's your own body! Anyway, I had told myself that I wasn't going to buy anything new until the old clothes were literally falling off of me! So I had to do all my exercising in my jeans, I owned 2 pairs.
I also only had one pair of tennis shoes that had seen better days. Everyday I went out for my walk in my jeans and old tennis shoes. It wasn't about looking cute (or trying to) it was about getting the job done.
I didn't buy a new pair of pants until the first 45 lb. weight loss. The funny thing was I hadn't realized how tight my size 22/24 jeans were until I lost about 20 lbs., and that's when they fit so much better! When I finally bought some new clothes I was in a size 14/16. And I wore those clothes until they were literally falling off of me! The next size for me was 10 and then 6.
I remember going to the mall wearing a size 10. I felt like I fit in for the first time. I felt invisible in a different way. Like I didn't stick out. When you're fat, you feel invisible in another way. Like no one cares about you, you're not important, you're dismissed.
Anyway, the jeans thing just stuck. My training and exercise has never been about wearing the latest "work out gear", and it wasn't about a fancy gym. In fact I purposely tape the videos for my blog "as I am". Most of the time I barely get my teeth brushed much less blow dry my hair or put on make-up. That's the same reason most of them (99%) also are taped in our garage gym.
Get the job done! Doesn't matter what you wear or where you are, all you need is your kettlebell.
