new jacket..LARGE? no way
Sunday, January 02, 2011
So my DH came home with a new suede jacket for me. It's beautiful. Just by looking at it I knew it wouldn't fit. I asked what size it was and he said large. Gotta love the guy for thinking I could fit into a large. I haven't even seen XL for years. When you are over 300 lbs it's hard to find anything that fits without choking you. Grant it, I've lost 68 lbs in the last 8 months and I am very proud of that. Yes, my sizes are going down but still......The problem is, I am still in the fat mentality. I still see myself as being 300 lbs. That will be one thing I work on this year. Not sure how to get out of that frame of mind but I am sure it will happen. Anyway, I tried it on because he insisted. Holy crap It FIT!!!! No kidding. What a shocker. I was so happy I started crying. Now I don't believe at 230+ that everything I buy will be a large. It all depends on style, cut, etc. but I can almost start shopping at regular stores for things. That gives me even MORE motivation for sticking to it. Oh yeah, I got my Zumba dvd yesterday, today I am going to start rocking it out. Then starting next week will actually be in a zumba class once a week. It is incorporated with the curves circuit training....all the ladies who have started it are having a blast. I am even thinking about getting myself some roller blades. Getting a little gutsy huh? Good luck to all of us in 2011. It is going to be an amazing year.
