It's been 14 months, 2 weeks and 4 days and I'm now very close to onederland. 65lbs gone, 4 shirt sizes, 3 jean sizes... and no loss of chest size in sight. lol.
HALF WAY THERE !!
I also reached a huge milestone today and before i divulge into what that milestone is, i'll explain a little.
The last 5 years i've been plus sized and I have had jeans range from 16 to 20(i recently found a pair of capris i forgot i had and they were a size 20, i previously thought my highest jeans were an 18). So the last year, clothes have been getting more loose, i still kept thinking, until today, that i will always be a plus sized gal. I also hate to shop, and have hated shopping for clothes for myself for the last few years because i could never find anything i really loved that fit, especially because i could only shop a very few select shops(like.. two lol). So when i hit the half way mark last week, i had decided to treat myself to a new outfit to really show off the hard work i've put in.
I dreaded shopping today, especially because i couldn't find anyone to go with me. I spent 3 hours, went to nearly every female apparel shop and came out with two new pairs of jeans and a new shirt. I had found out that a few of those shops don't carry jeans larger then a size 14, and one of the employee's was actually pretty rude about that question and then i had a wonderful employee at another shop who looked with me for a good 20-25 minutes or so to see if they had any jeans in my size left(that were on sale... i'm not spending $100 on one pair of jeans i wont be able to wear in 6 months), and we chatted and i spoke about how i've lost so much weight and wanted something nice to wear. He was fantastic, and as i left, he said he looked forward to the next time i was in, to see the next stage of progress, as a thinner moi lol.
anyways, i went to the last shop and found regular sized jeans, in my size, and they fit amazingly ! I also found a great shirt at one of my favorite shops in the regular section, at a size of just XL. I didn't think i'd fit into it, especially because of a large chest, but it did !!!
