Halloween Costume!

Sunday, October 10, 2010

SO after my sons dr apt yesterday he asked if we could get something to eat a a treat. I responded by suggesting we go get a costume forHalloween. He loved that idea. So while he picked out a custume I was realizing the adult sizes went up to size 12. I nervously picked on out thinking will this fit! Got home tried it on and it did! YES! YES! YES! At an 18 when I started I could have never been able to walk into the drug store and find a costume! Wow, I am loving my new fredoms!

Please share some of the fredoms you have enjoyed on your journey!

    Woohoo. I am right there with you on the freedoms you never had before. My biggest was booths at restaurants. I was so afraid of them - now I don't have to worry.

  YOU are such an inspiration!!! emoticon

Fitting into jeans and blouses that I never thought I would again has been a great part of my journey so far as well as more energy available when with my 3 year old grand-daughter.

    So cool. It is wonderful to be this free. I miss Halloween a bit. Here in Mexico it is Day of Dead and it is very cool....but they are just now starting to get into the costume bit.
Enjoy your costume.

    Awesome job on the costume size. I just purchased on 2 sizes smaller myself. Of course I don't need it until next June for a presentation, by then I'll have to have it taken in some!

    Great feeling, isn't it?! Last week I started working. I haven't worked for over 2 1/2 years, and in that time I put on a lot of weight. I was really surprised when I tried on my slacks that they fit. Felt great! Congrats to you!

    Isn't that the greatest feeling?!

For me it has been two things this week:
1) my 22 year old daughter saying "Dang Mom, you're looking amazing!"
2) realizing that smiling no longer gives me a double chin.

Let's keep up the great work so that we can continue to discover these little treasures.
