256.0! 16/18!!!!!

Friday, July 19, 2013

So I went from 256.4 to 259 and have struggled the past few weeks to get back to 256 and finally today I am exactly 256! It feels good to reach a goal although small. I am now 56 pounds away from reaching my first weight loss goal weight. I want to see how I feel at 200 and go from there. For me this journey isn't about being skinny or being a size 0 or even a size 2 or 4. This is about me, my health, and being happy with who I am and that can only be determined by me and me alone.

A few days ago I met a family friend for a girl day. She took me out to lunch at a burger place and I did really good and ordered a little cheeseburger wrapped in lettuce. She gave me $25.00 to spend on something that made me smile so we went to a few different stores in search of something that made me smile. We ended up at Walmart and I found a really pretty long black maxi dress but was sad because it was a size 16/18 I usually wear an 18/20/22 and I knew in my head that it wouldn't fit but tried it on anyways. I slipped it on and to my amazement it FIT! It fit with room to spare and it made me feel so good I jumped up and down in the dressing room. I walked out of the dressing room to show my family friend and she said I looked beautiful. The attendant in charge of the dressing rooms kept looking and me and smiled. In that moment I felt I reached a huge milestone in this journey. I was so happy! I ended up getting the dress and got a cute hat to go with it. I can't wait to wear it on my 4 year anniversary with my boyfriend next month :)

    Both a scale victory and a non-scale victory! Hurray! It sounds like the weight loss may also be significant INCHES lost.. A warning: dont buy too many things in the new size because soon you'll be down to 12s!
