I almost cried. It fit!

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Back in the fall, my sister in law gave me a bag of clothes that a friend had given her. She is about a size 8, and all the clothes ranged in size from 12-18, so obviously she couldn't wear any of them. She thought I could use some of them, so I tried everything on, and a lot of them were too big. I immediately gave the too big clothes to Good Will. Once I can't wear a size any longer, I get rid of it, so I don't have it to fall back on.

There were a couple items in particular that I was hoping I'd be able to fit into by spring. One was a dress from Express that's for summer. It's a pink color and sleeveless, and the size is a medium. I didn't try that on today, but I did try on the other item I really wanted to wear: a skirt from Nautica. I tried it on months ago and could not get it zipped. I was hoping it would fit by spring, so it's been hanging in my closet.

Today I got the urge to try it on again. My jeans (size 14) are all getting loose, but not loose enough to get into a smaller size. The skirt is a 12. So, I tried it on, and could zip it, and it fit comfortably! I got my husband to take a couple pics of me!

There is nothing like trying on clothes that were once too small to find that they now fit! It really motivates you, and shows the proof of your hard work!
