Never give up, never quit, never surrender

You only fail when you stop trying

There is nothing to hold you back except you.

You can press forward long after you canít. Itís a matter of wanting it bad enough.

The bad news is: we are our own worst enemies. The good news is: we are our own greatest champions.

well done .I met an acquaintance, who runs a dress shop , this morning. I might buy a dress from her if I can get well below 140 lbs. I would love to be a size 14 but have not been for about 60 years!!! my shape will never be the same as everything has sagged with age.

That is fabulous! The dressing room has always been an issue for me as we'll, and I'd always buy the big sizes, take them home, and settle for them as long as they buttoned, zipped, snapped,etc! So happy for you! Keep it up, cause nothing tastes as good as that feeling feels!

I know, isn't it crazy? I keep taking the last size I was into the dressing room and realizing I am down a size.

It's kinda like I have one size stuck in my head and now that I am below that I have to readjust my thinking and just start with it. lol.

All the best!

So for 20 years I've bought and worn only plus sized clothing. After losing 72 lbs (my ticker only shows 52 because I lost 20 on my own before rejoining SP), I know I've had to get rid of 95% of my wardrobe. This week I had to try on sample sizes for some hoodies I'm ordering for my students and in the past, I'd always start with the biggest available size and hope it fit. Out of habit, I started with the 2x. It swam on me. I put on the xl and it fit, but was more roomy than I'd like. But I waited two days to try the large out of fear and finally did it today. Not only did the large fit, but I was able to comfortably zip it up. I am blown away and so excited. No, I'm not in regular sizes in every store, but it won't be long. I can't wait!
