My shopping trip yesterday was very successful. I found 3 pair of pants (size 16!) and 3 new tops and a pair of shoes that I have had my eye on all winter were now in clearance. And I don't have to hem any of the pants, they are the perfect length to wear with my Dansko shoes at school instead of flats - which I prefer so that I am taller than the students that I work with. It was a really incredible feeling to pull up the zipper in those 16's let me say. I have gone from super tight size 24's last July to a 16 currently, and a size 2X in tops to a plain L. My goal is a medium because there is so much more variety in mediums than large or small. Got to be practical. Though if I get to a size small I won't complain (LOL).

Back to school in a couple more days. This has been a very restful spring break. Didn't get everything done that I had wanted to accomplish but enough that I feel content. Visited with some old friends, got some good walks in, split my cookbook binder into a more manageable size, slept in almost every day (boy did I need that). Didn't finish cleaning the garage yet, there is still 1 day left so I might tackle that in the morning tomorrow just so I can mark it off my list. But I feel rested and rejuvenated and I think that is what the break is really about. Back to school on Monday and only 9 more weeks until summer break!

    Congrats on the wonders of finding pants that FIT right off the rack. I hate having to hem my jeans and slacks, am hoping that as I continue to get healthier that chore will be just a memory.

Enjoy your new clothes as you count down to summer vacation!

    It's an incredible feeling to get clothes in smaller sizes which fit well. emoticon
And good to get most things accomplished. Nine weeks is very manageable until the summer vacation.
