I went shopping a couple of weekends ago with my mom and I saw these really cute capri pants that I absolutely loved. But, I looked and saw that they were size 12 and I said, "No way am I going to fit into these, but I have to try." So, I tried them on...and to my great astonishment, they fit! I also bought a medium sized shirt. It was absolutely amazing to me that I fit into these clothes, so I had to take a picture with my new outfit.
After that trip, I went to Vegas the next weekend with some friends and for the first time in my life I walked into designer clothing stores and felt like I could actually try things on. It was so much fun! I am LOVING my new size! The downside is that every time I go into a clothing store I want to buy more clothes, and I'm still not quite at my ultimate goal weight, so I keep getting too small for all my new clothes! It will be nice when I reach my ultimate goal and I can buy clothes that I can keep wearing for a long time.

I know it sounds funny to be so happy to be Overweight, but when you've been Obese or Morbidly Obese your whole life like me, you'd celebrate too to finally be JUST Overweight. I just breached that gap this morning as I weighed in at 185.4 pounds and my BMI is finally just under 30. I still have another 35 pounds to go before I'll be considered Healthy by BMI standards, but for now I'm just going to rejoice at being Overweight. Woohoo!!
I went clothes shopping yesterday too since some stores were having Holiday sales for Presidents' Day. We recently got a Layne Bryant here in town. I was so excited when it was being built, but I went for the first time yesterday. They have this new style of jeans called "Right Fit" jeans that are awesome. I bought some just before my husband and I started losing weight in the end of August and I was squeezing myself into a size 5. Well, I bought a size 2 yesterday! They are tight, but I know I'm just going to keep going down, so I'll shrink into them. hehe. I also bought a pair of dress pants in a size 14, so I can officially say that I wear size 14!
I also went to Dress Barn yesterday which has 2 sides to it - one for Women's sizes and one for normal sizes. I found out that I can no longer wear any clothes in the Women's sizes because they are all too big. However, I'm not quite small enough to fit into the normal sizes yet. I'm kinda in between a normal XL and a Women's 1XL (which should be the same size). I think the shirt I got at Wal-Mart was a Women's L so maybe that's the missing size here. Anyway, I did find one shirt that I really loved in a normal XL that I bought and I'm wearing today. Even though I'm not skinny yet, these clothes make me feel that I look skinnier, and I have gotten lots of compliments today that I'm shrinking away and looking great. It sure makes me feel good and want to keep going.
