It's working and I like it!

Monday, August 03, 2009

I had my first real WOW moment this weekend. I decided to go shopping since I was having a case of the saggy booty. (lol) While I was out shopping I kept hearing my inner voice to tell me to try on an 18. I was like naw'll I can't wear that. All because my other pants still fit a little in the waist. I'm arguing with myself while my 14 month old is grinning at me like I'm talking to him. ~smile~ I grabbed an 18w and high tailed it to the dressing room to prove myself wrong. I put one leg in and the while entire time, I'm fussing myself out. "Girl, you cannot wear no dayum 18. You can still wear those 24's"You ain't losin no weight. Inches maybe. Remember the 254.4 that I was crying about 2 weeks ago? Now it's 244, that's under that 247 that I was seeing 4 weeks ago. I was like man....10 pounds in 3 weeks. (Still amazes me....) But I put the other leg in the pants and started sliding them up...and the whole time my brain is screaming at me like you can't get into these pants. Once I stood there with them around my waist...the mental torture became worse. It was "I betcha can't button them, they won't fasten....." Lo and behold...I buttoned and zipped them. Standing in that dressing room looking in that mirror, at me....ME?!! In an 18!!!!!!!!!! OMG....I don't even remember being in an 18 EVER! I lost my mind. I didn't buy much because I know that I will not be here long. But I brought enough to keep a smile on my face for the next month. I may go again. I've never enjoyed shopping so much in my life! I just wanted to share with you. I have been on cloud 9 all weekend long! I will post some new pictures soon. I just wanted to share!

    Way to go. I love those moments. I call them "OH YEAH" moments. I never liked trying on clothes either and I had a similar experience that I blogged about.

Anyway this is YOUR moment. Great job. Keep up the good work. Be proud of yourself you are doing awesome.

Take Care and God Bless ! ! !

    I love to shop! Even if I don't buy anything I love to go into dressing rooms and try on all the stuff that was beyond me for too many years! I love going into Nordstrom exclusive designer department and try on $2000 Armani blazers just for the sheer fun of it (no WAY could I every hope to own one)! You keep it up! It's a great feeling to be where you've never been before!!!!

  Loved your post...and great to hear you had that "special moment" in the dressing room. I can't wait until I have one... which is long over due!

I have a whole bag of clothes in the spare room which I can't get into.... maybe by the end of Aug, i can go shopping in my own house.

Keep up the great work!

    What a great feeling! There's almost nothing better in life than seeing concrete proof of our efforts. I'm really happy for you.

I've only lost 5 pounds, but I've been working out at the gym a lot for three weeks, and I'm having the fun experience of going shopping in my closet! I've retired one set of pants that I wear for work, and gone down to the next size smaller that I've been keeping for a year. Sorry to say that I have yet a third size smaller in my closet that I've been keeping for two years! Those are next!
