I fit into a shirt!! NSV Alert

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Last August my son got a shirt for Baseball. I grabbed a size Large and thought maybe someday I can wear it! This will be his third year on this team and I have never had a shirt supporting the team.

The reason I never had one is they did not have many in size 3x or even 4x.

So in August I had lost 24 pounds so far. The shirt was hard to get on and off!
Here is a photo of me when I got this shirt. This was taken Aug 7, 2011

I posted here on spark a fun goal of me getting into this shirt by April 2012 for baseball.
We have had a few practice games with our first real game the first weekend in April.

To be honest I was scared to try the shirt on! I really wanted this BAD

Well here it is and I can't believe it!!! A little snug at the bottom but I think this is a victory.

It fits!

I almost can't control the emotion...I started to cry right after that photo...
This is what I am working for!

I am very close to losing 100 pounds but I doubt 100 pounds will ever feel this good.

If you feel like giving up please don't!
This is the best feeling ever!

    Wow! You look so good! I tear up feeling the joy for you. I found a dirt in my closet that I had bought because I liked. It did not come in a bigger size. I tried it on and it fits. I so appreciate your joy. Congratulations! emoticon

    I too am a sports fan, and support everything that is Nebraska Cornhusker. Nothing ever fit me, so I would just wear a plain red top to show my support. One Christmas my wonderful son found me a 5X jacket that says Nebraska across the front. I loved it, but last Christmas I got some more Husker gear--size L!! I can wear so many things now to show my love for the Huskers--the chance to show our support for those we love (like your son's BB team) is just another thing we lose when we let ourselves get so obese. But we're back baby!!!

    I'm so happy for you!!! I can totally relate to this too. This was chilly last fall, and because I had been shrinking, I didn't have any sweatshirts or anything to put on. I grabbed one of hubby's sweatshirts, I've always been WAY bigger than him, and thought it would be "good enough" and to my surprise, it fit! You look great in that shirt, congratulations! *HUGS*
