Doin' the Happy Dance!!

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

So today I was getting ready for work and looking for some capri's, but not finding them. I'm looking through my closet trying to figure out what I can wear when a pair of brown size 24W White Stag (Walmart) capri's jumped out at me. (Okay! Well, not literally!!!) The last time I tried these on was about three months ago and yes I COULD wear them, but miserably. They looked like they were spray painted on back then! So today was SHOCKED to find out not only could I wear these size 24 capri's but they fit comfortably!! This is a WHOLE size in the last three months. I normally wear a size 26 and even a 28 sometimes. I barely can even find clothes at Walmart that I can wear. So anyway, I wasn't even trying to lose weight THEN! I only started losing because I started working as a Cashier at Walmart and was on my feet a lot more...thus, getting more exercise!

I figure if I can lose a whole size by not doing anything then surely I can lose by changing my eating habits as well. This whole three months I was not trying to lose weight AT ALL!! I drank tons of sodas, ate fried food from the deli counter every day, not to mention all the junk I consumed when I WASN'T at work!

What does this tell me? That I CAN DO IT!!! And, I WILL SUCCEED!!!

    What a coincidence! My first taste of success came in the form of a pair of white capris(size 22) as well!
    I actually wore them last night, and my hubby called me (lovingly) "hey baggy pants". I knew they were getting loose and baggy. But, in a weird kind of way it feels good to wear them.
    At the rate you are going, you'll soon be needing a size 22. emoticon baby!

    If only we lived near each other, I could pass them on to you. emoticon

    YES, emoticon And keep on 'HAPPY DANCING' emoticon
