I went shopping yesterday and guess what?!! There are stores out there that go up to an 18!! I can't tell you how long it's been since I was able to shop anywhere besides plus size stores...so I tried a bunch of stuff I couldn't afford just cuz it fit!!!
Yup, isn't it great?! I mean, of course I look forward to the day when I can find attractive clothing in a totally healthy size like an 8 or 10, but I really love the expanded sizing at department stores, so there are more (and less expensive) options.
On my own personal journey I started on September 27, 2008
Starting weight 377, Weight in spring of 2010 198, Weight in August 2011? In the 240's.
Still plugging along on this weight loss highway!
