NSV - Scrub Tops!

Monday, February 11, 2013

When I started this journey, I was buying a size 4X scrub tops. There are some places out there that carry cute scrub tops in larger sizes, but not a lot. Added to that, they are expensive. I can remember looking at scrub tops at Wal-Mart and longing to buy them (they have some of the CUTEST holiday tops and they are cheap) but their biggest size (a 3X) was way too small). I could wear a 3X in some brands, but apparently Wal-Mart scrub tops run a little on the small side as I couldn't even get them over my shoulders.

My Mom, ever my champion, called me tonight and asked me to stop over "for a minute." In Mom Speak this means "I'm up to something." I went to her house having NO idea what she was up to this time. Turns out she had found some Valentine's Day scrub tops at Wal-Mart that she thought I needed. In a size 2X. I was devastated. I said "Mom, these will never fit. I can't even get into a 3X." "Just try them," she said. I was so frustrated as I grabbed the first shirt and yanked it over my head. That is until I realized it fit. Not only did it fit, it was a little on the baggy side. My ever so smart Mom stood there grinning at me as I stood there speechless.

Another small victory for me.

Eventually my brain will catch up to my body.

    To me getting into a smaller size is even better then seeing a loss on the scale. Congratulations!

    emoticon emoticon This happened to me years ago when I lost over 100 lbs (yes, I have been down this road before, but this will be my last time). Anyway I went to buy a swimming suit for a vacation we were taking with our two small sons. When I started trying on size 20 suits, they could have fit at least another half of a person in them! In the end, we discovered I really needed a size 14 to fit well. I just did not pay attention to how "loose" my clothes had become on me.
