Got Rid of 25 lbs
Monday, April 22, 2013
I weighed in on Saturday and hit an important milestone: 25 lbs lost!
Actually, let me rephrase: I have gotten rid of 25 lbs!
I have never, ever lost more than 25 lbs in my whole life so this is an exciting and scary turning point for me. I now weigh 185 lbs and I haven't weighed less than this since before 2007... so that's at least 6 freaking years ago (a long time when you're only 25 years old).
So, obviously, my clothes are getting a little big. I've been putting off buying clothes for work (dressy stuff) just because I have all the intentions in the world of losing more weight. Besides, summer is coming and I can wear dresses and skirts without them looking too bad on me. My current stock of dress pants, however, don't look great on me anymore. Wayy too baggy, which is a good thing.
However, I was out shopping with some family at Costco yesterday and saw some cute dressy bermuda shorts. I picked up a pair of size 12 grey ones and took them home, fully intending on returning them because there's no way I'd fit into a size 12! I'm normally a size 14. Well, I'm wearing them today and they're actually a little loose! FANTASTIC! I can't remember the last time I bought a size 12 anything... :)
Next stop, size 10.
