Hi @Margeaux_H I am dealing with pandemic weight gain and am struggling to feel body positive as I go shopping for new clothes a size up. Whereas I used to do my shopping online, I now have to go to the store in person because I don’t know how different styles are going to fit. Any words of wisdom on how to talk to myself as I take in the “me” in the dressing room mirror? Thank you for your thoughts 🙏

@aquagal49 Hi!  I totally feel you on this as I have had a closet in the past that consisted of several different sizes. The pandemic and menopause also had me up a size and I struggled for months to let go of the weight.  When I was shopping a size up I tried to remind myself that the weight does not define who I am.  Try and remember that when you are shopping for clothes, your style is reflecting to the world how you feel on the inside.  Right now you might not be feeling as fabulous as you did pre pandemic but you are still the same amazing, exciting, vibrant person you were pre-pandemic pounds, so let the world see that.  Pull things off the rack that accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative.  For me I have a small waist no matter what my dress size, so I always try and accentuate that.  What is your best feature?  Hone in on that.  Give yourself a break and show yourself the same grace you would easily give to others.
