Someone actually said this to me a few days ago, and my jaw practically fell to the floor! I don't yet have that image of myself and don't know if I ever will, but I'm okay with other people having it!
I still have not adjusted to the "new" me - the one that I intend to be for the rest of my life. My one-year Sparkiversary is in just 5 days and it will definitely be a day of celebration! I would never in my wildest dreams been able to imagine how much SP has changed my life for the better. I have a whole new arsenal of tools and knowledge, and I'm in full control of my weight and fitness.
Over the weekend I went shopping for a dress to wear for my wedding rehearsal. I started out with a bunch of dresses in size 8 (it's still a whoo-hoo moment for me to even be looking for a single-digit number on those racks). When I got into the dressing room I tried the first one on and found it was actually a little baggy. Ended up leaving the store with a bunch of new dresses - in size 6! Astonishing, incredible, amazing, and sometimes still a little scary. I still have this feeling that it's all a big joke - that somebody switched the tags on me and these things aren't really the size that they are. I don't want to be size-obsessed, but it's such a fantastic feeling! If someone had told me a year ago that I would be buying clothes in this size I would have told them they were insane, but here I am... A SparkPeople Success Story :)
