It's Official! Size 24

Monday, September 09, 2013

I went to church this morning and I wore a jean skirt that I haven't worn in years. It's a size 26. The skirt kept twisting on me. It turns out that the skirt is a little too loose. So when I got home I tried on several dresses. I put on the dress, size 24, that I got married in 4 years ago and it was loose. I had bought two dresses before that one, both size 24, and I decided not to wear them but I kept them any way because they were priced at $110 but I got them at a mark down sale for about $45 each. I tried them on and they fit better than when I first bought them 4 years ago. I bought those 2 dresses from JC Penney. I never wore them because they had gotten too small. They still have the price tag on them. I had stopped shopping there because I could no longer fit their clothes. I can fit them now. I even tried on a size 22 that I bought from Robinson's May many years ago. Close, but no cigars. But I got it on, just couldn't zip it all the way up. I am determined to lose another 50 pounds. I'm going to have to find a good seamstress, because I do not want to give up my dresses. I'm loving the size 24. Size 22 isn't too far away. emoticon

    I bet it felt so good going shopping in your closet! I have some older clothes that are starting to fit me again too. It is the most amazing thing to rediscover old favourites or outfits you felt didn't look good because of weight issues.
