I Canít Describe the Thrill

So for 20 years I've bought and worn only plus sized clothing. After losing 72 lbs (my ticker only shows 52 because I lost 20 on my own before rejoining SP), I know I've had to get rid of 95% of my wardrobe. This week I had to try on sample sizes for some hoodies I'm ordering for my students and in the past, I'd always start with the biggest available size and hope it fit. Out of habit, I started with the 2x. It swam on me. I put on the xl and it fit, but was more roomy than I'd like. But I waited two days to try the large out of fear and finally did it today. Not only did the large fit, but I was able to comfortably zip it up. I am blown away and so excited. No, I'm not in regular sizes in every store, but it won't be long. I can't wait!
