Compliments - keep them coming. :)

Monday, August 04, 2008

I went to Vegas this weekend to visit friends. My girlfriend commented on the weight I've lost. I told her I'm down a total of 20 lbs now. :) Her hubby said it looks like more than 20! YEAH!

Although - I teased my hubby on the way home ------ did that mean I was really fat before or that I'm too skinny now? He just rolled his eyes at me.

I carry my weight all over so I know it wasn't either case ----- I was thicker, yes, but my biggest was a size 13 (juniors) at 5 feet tall.....in the scheme of things, that's not all that big. But now, I'm comfortably in a 7. And the way the 7s stretch out through the day, I think I'll try a 5. I didn't think I'd ever be in a 5 again.

3-4 dress sizes is a great difference!

So, I felt great hearing the compliments. Although ----- I'm too small for a lot of my pants, shorts, and skirts now ----- tops fit ------ so I need to go shopping again. But we are trying to remodel the house, too and Christmas and birthdays are coming ----- that's a lot of money going out.

    Try thrift stores! You can get really nice, used jeans for 5-7 bucks (you just have to really pay attention for any holes/stains/etc). Old Navy always has clearance sales going on as well. Getting something even cheap or used can make you feel like a million bucks if it fits well rather than hanging on to old clothes that don't. =)
