New Christmas outfit pictures & why I love SP

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

My husband bought me a new outfit for Christmas because I hate shopping. Yes, I am a woman... but I truly hate shopping. I don't understand either. Anyhow, he wanted me to get something tight & sexy to show off my smaller figure. I, however, am more comfortable in big, baggy, hide the rolls clothing. I was so excited to find the perfect compromise outfit - sexy but not too tight. And the best part..... the pants are a size smaller than what I've been wearing!!!

Here is my outfit:

The reason I LOVE SP.... if I were to put a picture on FB & say that I've lost 24 pounds and went from a size 16 to a size 10, most of the people I know would say mean spirited comments or think I was bragging. Well, maybe I am bragging. But, dammit, I can! I've worked hard to get here & I am quite proud of the progress I have made. I love that I can "brag" on SP & know that the people reading it will be truly happy for me. This is such a wonderfully supportive site & I am thrilled to be a part of it.

My weight loss has been slow & although I'd like to fast forward, I'm trying to enjoy the journey & embrace all that I have learned. I still have a way to go. When I lose another 7 pounds, I'll reach a normal BMI!!! I have 16 pounds till my goal weight. My husband said he'll pay for a tummy tuck if I hit my goal weight. I don't know if that will ever happen but I would be thrilled!! After 2 c/s & a 50 pound weight gain, my body just ain't what it used to be. I do have before pictures but I really doubt they'll ever see the light of day. lol. They're not pretty. lolol.
