Talking Smallest dress size in 25 years

I saved a dress from the 90's when I lost weight on phen phen. It was the smallest dress that I have worn in the last 25 years. On a whim I tried it on tonight. I was surprised when the sleeves slid over my arms. I was shocked when I started buttoning the front. I about fainted when I finished buttoning it and stood in front of the mirror. It fit!!!!!

I really did not expect it to fit. My weight loss has really slowed down but I have been seeing changes to my body for a couple of weeks and I just wanted to see how tight it was. Totally surprised when it fit.

I will never wear it in public as it is out of style and pretty shabby looking but it was such a wonderful moment when I realized that it fit. I am kind of in shock. I have gotten down to my previous smallest size. I am on the verge of getting smaller than that. It is hard to believe that this is happening.

Persistence is more important than Perfection

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential. - Winston Churchill
