Got my self esteem boosted today

Friday, August 01, 2014

Bought a blue dress at Target today for $7.48 (originally $24.99) in a size Large. A 70 percent savings. Thought that I might have to wait until I lost some more weight than I have to fit into it. WRONG!!! Tried it on after we got home from supper and it fits beautifully. Not too tight or not too loose. Just perfect. I thought that I was going to have a hard time getting out of it when I took it off to put back on what I had on before I tried on the dress. Nope. It came off just as easy as it went on. Talk about a self esteem boost. Reminds me of the 2 dresses I tried on up in Minnesota on July 20, 2014 at the outlet mall but at a cheaper price. I cannot believe that I can fit into a size large dress. Its going to take me a while to get over that. I modeled it for dad and he thought that it look great. No matter where any one of you live, you could hear me screaming and laughing for joy if I was loud. I will try to get a picture of me in it. Even if I have to have my sister-in-law from Minnesota take a picture of me with my camera. I feel like that Shania Twain song Man! I Feel Like A Woman! in that dress. I'm enjoying being in a dress now than I did years ago. That must tell me something. I need to find some shoes to go with it. Its a royal blue dress.

I'm getting more and more compliments on my hair. That's a self esteem boost too. And people have been telling me how beautiful I am. I'm not use to that at all. The selfie that I took at my niece's wedding with me and her got a lot of compliments on it on how great it looks.

    emoticon I work at Target and it takes all of my willpower to avoid the clothing section. I have a walk in closet so crammed full of clothes that fit and are 1 size too small so I don't need to buy anything. It's also tax free weekend where I live (TN) and that makes it harder. They have such great deals though.

Congrats on fitting in the dress!! That's an amazing feeling.

    emoticon I LOVE smaller size NSVs. IMO, outside of a scale victory, finding out you are in a smaller size, and didn't know it is phenomenal .

Congratulations. emoticon
