Wink I went shopping today

I was in a crappy mood (though my weight was DOWN this morning to 203.4!!!!) and so decided to go shopping. I normally shop at thrift stores but I found NOTHING decent today. So I went to the mall...

My size 18 levi's are way too big for me. My 16's are getting a bit loose... so I decided to try on a pair of Lee's Riders in a 14 misses (these are all misses sizes and not plus) and guess what.... THEY FREAKING FIT. I can do them up and everything!!!!!! Now I've got a bit of a muffin top with it so regular wear will have to wait for another 5 pounds but SIZE 14!!!!!

So to celebrate I bought some LARGE yoga pants and a LARGE t-shirt.... notice the no X's in sight? Anywhere?

happy sigh
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!

I feel you!!!! I don't even know what to do with all my larges...I just bought the dang things right before Christmas and they are all flapping and falling off. I have never, ever, EVER been a medium before. I think I went from 6X in like 2nd grade to L overnight. It's totally surreal!!!

Congrats! I think the first time I put on size 14's in the dressing room, I quickly took them off, hung them back up and then went out to my car and burst into tears. LOL. So you're handling this new, smaller size a lot better than I did!

Short-Term Goal

One dancer for each 5 lbs lost!

Oh Baby, time to give up the thrift store now...cuz I'll tell you, I was shopping yesterday and at Penney's and several other dept. stores they had boat loads of adorable size 14's (and smaller) on the 80% off rack. Brand new adorable clothes for LESS than some of my thrift store finds. I know for you now, you'll probably not want to start shopping for next year not knowing what tiny size you'll end up by then, but just wait!!! I have found such a thrill buying super duper classics now that I'm at goal, (only stuff that I'm pretty sure will still be in style next winter) for rock bottom prices. I used to envy my friends who would pick up great values knowing they would be able to wear them "next year".

Oh how I would love to go shopping with some of my 3fc buddies!
Highest weight - 333 pounds. Lost 193 pounds by calorie counting in 2008/09. Regained 73 pounds in the last 7 years and am working on getting back to a normal BMI.

You know, I really think size 14 is one of those major milestones on the way down. (I've lived in the UK for ages, but I still automatically translate sizes into North American equivalents.) Congratulations, and as Lori Bell says, hit the clearance racks!
Began 14 August 2008
Initial goal of 175 reached 5 July 2010
Goal reset to 160
Maintaining 160-165 since November 2010
