Clothes Shopping! Size that I didn't expect!


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, December 08, 2012

I needed to buy new pants for work today and so I went to Lane Bryant. Now, yesterday at work, I had SQUEEZED into a size 22 pair of jeans... and this is the mystery of being a woman... I can do that and then the VERY next day go shopping and buy a pair of size 18/20 dress pants! I went to grab a size 18/20 top and it was BIG on me! I actually had to have the saleslady grab me a.... OMG... could it be??? Yes, a size 14/16 top! Well, I think us women will understand, but I haven't seen that SIZE ANYTHING since my early 20's (I'm 44 now) and so I bought 4 tops! I only went for pants. Oh yeah, bought 2 new bras, too! Smaller, as well! Can you believe it?????

I'm just thrilled! I just had to share in my excitement! I'm down to 113 lbs lost as of a couple of days ago. Now, I can say that I FINALLY have UNDER 100 lbs left to lose! Actually, I'm shooting for 165-175 as my goal. I'm 5'10" I made myself a mini goal to reach 120 lbs lost by Christmas and I think I'll do it!

Having such a great time getting dressed these days... here is my favorite outfit that I bought today... pants and sweater/top.

    Good for you! Buying new, prettier clothes in smaller sizes was a benefit of losing weight I had forgotten about! But it's so much fun!!!
