My latest Victory!

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

So I'm going to use something I learned from a SF. I had a NSV!!!! emoticon Sunday morning it was 30 degrees out, and I was looking for something warmer to wear for church. I had put on a relatively bulky purple(lenten color) sweater and was still cold. I was wearing slacks and warm socks, not the norm for me for church, but I woke up cold and did not relish getting colder outside. I reached into the coat closet and thought surely I have something warmer than this car coat or my bulky wool cape(40 yrs old). I found it! A beautiful princess style, below the knees coat my DH had given me---oh about 13-14 years ago. It was way in the back, and besides the fact that it's not used much in GA, I know y'all can guess why! Well I tried it on! It fit-Oh the joy that flood my soul! It fit and I could button it, even over my bulky sweater! emoticon I walked into church from the parking lot, grinning from ear to ear. emoticon The grin got larger emoticon as two people told me I looked great, and asked if I had lost weight. NO! I have not. But I've lost inches, and I think it's time to measure again! probably past time, but I can see the evidence without my measuring tape-but as much as I HATE MATH, I do like concrete evidence. So I'm going to measure myself, then go on my walk.

Have a Tremendous Tuesday! emoticon

    Great Ginie. I'm proud of your success. I would be smiling as well. Isn't it amazing what we find in our closets at the back. It's like the statement. What's old is New again. Congratulations. Keep up the good work.

    yeah! so glad you focus on the measurements and how you feel rather than the number on the scale!
Sounds to me like it's time for you to go through your closet ~ you may just find a whole new wardrobe! YEAH!
