Good Bye XL Forever!
Friday, August 16, 2013
Recently my clothes are too big and I donated them, leaving me with few things to wear and nothing too special. I am in Las Vegas and did a little shop for clothes. I tried on a long skirt, size XL and it was too long. Dare I try on a size large? Yes I will and IT FIT! Wow I looked over at the 2 tops I got for layering and decided to try size Large. Will they fit too??? YES!!! YES THEY DO!!!
I felt a sense of relief and a feeling of accomplishment as it hit me. FINALLY!!! I am on the brink of onederland and I am back to size Large, a size I have not worn for about 12 years. I never thought of size Large as a milestone, but I certainly recognized it when I hit it. My focus had been on getting under 200 pounds, but hitting size Large now, came at a time I really need to refocus on my healthy lifestyle and get to a healthy BMI.
I now wear a size large! Maybe I have for awhile. I thought an XL was my size and just fit me better than it did 20-30 pounds ago. I noticed as my body is shrinking, it's still the same shape, just less of it. Time to hit the gym and make some muscle! But am I ever motivated now!
This is what I look like at 202 pounds and size large.
