Default Old skirt, new skirt? and walking progress...

I had bought a skirt years ago when I was a size 20, and today I tried it on in the vain hope that it might fit....

and it did!

OMG.

I am a solid size 22 jean, but my 22 skirts have been a little big lately and now this 20 totally fits! Not too long now before I'm a 20 in jeans too!

also, my route that i walk has taken 90 mins all week, today it only took 75. I'm gonna shoot for 60 tomorrow!

That's great! My husband recently started fitting into clothes I bought for him when we first met almost 4 years ago! I can't wait to go "shopping" in my closet at my parent's house next year!

woot woot!!! That is awesome!!!!!

I had a size 14 skirt (denim and frayed out on the bottom, knee length) that i could no longer fit into...but held onto it with dear life...told my mom to put it away for me. When she gave it back to me.....it was too big! I was excited but a little teeny bit sad at the same time..I was so looking forward to wearing it again. Finally I just gave it away!!!!

Congratulations, Lottie! I bet it feels great to be back in that cute skirt AND to be kickin' butt on your walk. Walking is my exercise of choice, too, and I love it.

lottie--That's awesome!!!!! congrats and great job!!!

I remember when I went down a size once I was SO excited because it had taken me SO long, I actually hopped in my car and drove to my parents house (they only live a few blocks away). When I got there, I realized I hadn't even put my shoes back on yet! LOL!!!! I can't wait to get back into some of my clothes!!!!


***for anyone who has favorites that you just don't want to let go of....you can sometimes take them to a tailor/seamstress--it can be much less expensive than buying new AND you get to keep your favorite item.

there's something about the clothes that's an extra special NSV in my mind. Congrats!!

and the feeling of getting into better shape, that's awesome too. I'm really happy for you, Lottie.
