They Noticed!


Saturday, November 24, 2012

I wore new, smaller slacks today. It was great. When I first got them, they were very snug in the waist so I didn't wear them right away. But today they fit perfectly! Not too snug anywhere.

On my trip, my cousin and I went thrift shopping. I enjoy exploring other thrift stores when traveling and often bring home a souvenir that is affordable and fun to wear. My new slacks were a local thrift score but are an unusual color of blue--almost turquoise but more like flag blue. I had been shopping for a top to go with them for some time. I've bought a couple of tops and brought them home to check the color match and wound up taking both of them back--wrong color. In Houston I found a linen top that perfectly matches the new slacks! All ladies' clothes were on special for 1/2 price--I took a chance on bringing it home for $2.

So, I wore my new outfit today and helped serve at a party after worship service. Two different ladies came up and asked me if I have been losing weight! Hooray! I guess the outfit is a hit. More incentive to be more careful to track all my food and exercise regularly. Spark on!

    Isn't that FUN! One of my volunteer assignments is at an office inside of a local upscale thrift store. Of course when I am not busy I wander out to see what they have and usually come home with a find or two (often healthy cookbooks.)
I loved this blog!

    Beth you are always so thrifty...but the huge thing was:
They noticed. Don't you just want to bottle that feeling and pull it out whenever your down on yourself?
I can so relate and AM so HAPPY for you.
I'm looking forward to an updated photo

    That's great! I've been doing the thrift store route myself. I simply can't afford a new wardrobe for every size down. It's been fun playing "treasure hunt."

It's so exciting when people notice the weight loss. Your doing so fabulously!

    emoticon What a feeling! Great job on all you do. I've gotten caught up reading your last few blogs and even with all that has been going on the last couple of weeks you have done so well. You should take a picture of the new outfit, I'd love to see it.
Have a wonderful Sunday!

    It is even better than scale results when your friends notice the weight loss. Nice going!
