Default This little chickie....


Yesterday was an AMAZING day. First, I went shopping and bought myself some size 14W jeans... and yes, that's still a plus size, but they were FOURTEENS... (when I started, I was a 26-28). Then, I DARED to walk into a non-plus size store and try on a size extra-large. I was so ecstatic that it fit that I was going to buy it on the spot-- until my daughters told me it was TOO BIG! I have been shopping plus size stores for so long that I never realized that the size 1X is actually smaller than a regular store's extra-large depending on the brand...

Then, when I got home from shopping, my daughter and I went to the gym, where we RAN on the track and lifted together. My daughter, whom I have trouble talking into going with me to the gym, said it was fun and would go any time. She's fifteen and I have NEVER run with her before. She was pretty amazed.

Then, the piece de resistance! When I got up this morning I had FINALLY dropped that stubborn pound. It took me 5 weeks to get from 228 to 225, but

I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Weight loss is about SO MUCH MORE than looks. It is truly life-changing!
