So, my day has been beyond stressful today at work. To the point that I actually almost hyperventilated. So, my wonderful co-workers (and Biggest Loser teammates) whisked me away on our lunch break to go shop for a really hot outfit for this weekend's roller derby bout. I am notorious for having no eye whatsoever for fashion, let alone things that flatter my body and don't make me look like a massive lump.
So, I took these fashion savvy ladies with me and they asked me what my size was and I told them. Next thing I know, they are tearing through the aisles and piling my arms up with random things (things I NEVER would have even looked at, by the way). I checked the tags and said, "Wait...this isn't my size...it's 2 sizes too small." But they ignored me and just said, "Try it on anyway. We'll deal with sizes later."
As I got busy trying things on in the dressing room, I found a couple really cute outfits and finally settled on the PERFECT dress. I mean, it looked HOT. Suddenly, I thought, "Wait a second." And I looked at the tags on all the clothing I had tried on (which had fit perfectly) and it was all 2 sizes too small. Well...not anymore! I just stood there in complete shock.
It's real. I mean...it's REAL!?
I'm kind of speechless right now. It's only been 3 weeks! How is this possible???
But deep down, I know. It's possible because I'm working hard. And using my brain and tracking meticulously and moving every single chance I get. And it's paying off. Surprisingly, though...I never expected it to be this easy. Or this enjoyable.
Suddenly, my day has turned for the better.
