*****a night of NSV's!!!*****

Friday, December 21, 2012

I know this is my second blog of the day but I am on a bit of a high after a few NSVs tonight. I ran to the mall after work to pick up a dress and shirt and tie for Derrell; we have family pictures on Monday. Earlier that day I was getting frustrated because my size 14W from Torrid kept sliding down my backside even though I had on a belt. They werent crazy loose, just annoyingly loose. So when I go to the mall I stop at JCPenneys and just start looking around their Misses section. I haven't shopped Misses since I was in 7th grade. I get a bit of guts and grab 3 dresses to try on in a 16 Misses. The first one fit! The second one was a lace structured number which DID NOT fit. The third one was great! I felt so good. Here is the winning dress. Please pay no attention to the hair- it was a long day.

I bought the dress and went on a hunt to find Derrell's stuff. I end up running into two different people that I have not seen in years. Their reaction to seeing me was emoticon ! One girl I grew up with in church. When we ran into each other at Old Navy she looked shocked and then so happy for me. Right after that I run into a girl I worked with a year ago and she looked at me and gasped, "you look amazing!" I feel so good!!!!

    You've always been a beautiful lady, but you do look emoticon You are doing a fantastic job on your weight loss journey!!! You better be prepared to see Derrell cry when you walk down the isle. Heck, he may cry at family pictures on Monday!!! Keep it up because it only gets better!

    Way to go. Doesn't it feel great to run into people who knew you ""before" and are amazed at the "present you"?
