I bought this dress today. It's a size medium. When I tried it on, I almost started crying in the dressing room. I couldn't believe it was me.

Just wanted to share my joy. :dance:

That dress is HOT! I've had so much angst recently looking for a nice black dress, that one is fabulous!

I bought it at Walmart for $24.00. I don't really need it, but I just couldn't resist. Not at that price. :D

You look GREAT! I remember having a similar "weepy" dressing room moment when I could finally buy "normal" clothing. :congrat: you DESERVE to celebrate - you are looking FABULOUS!

You look FANTASTIC.

And I too had a similar experience in the dressing room. I was in Macy's. It was the first time that I fit into non-plus-sized clothes. I was so overwhelmed and it was VERY emotional for me. I had to sit down and compose myself for quite a few minutes. I'll never, ever forget it.

Enjoy that dress. And enjoy the new and improved life you've made for yourself. :)

Super cute dress, and look how cute you look in it!

I'm in a bigger size now, but last time I lost weight I tried on a pair of size 14 dress pants and they fit. I was so overwhelmed that I hung them back up and ran out of the store. I sat in my car and cried because I had such mixed emotions--happy, guilty--I felt like I was trying on someone else's pants, LOL. Your reaction of (almost) crying, then buying the dress, is much better!

I had the same experience when I first tried on size 10s that looked really sexy on me. It was the first time I felt like I looked really good, and not just "better." I think I did cry a little :o Congrats :)

Wow, you are doing terrific. Cute dress too. I've had a few of those moments you describe, and it can be very emotional. Just keep remembering that YES you deserve to be a "medium" person. :hug:

Julie, that is exactly right. I felt like I looked good. Before, I had just felt like I looked better - but still bad. It's been so long since I liked what I saw in the mirror... :D

Thank you all so much for the encouragement. So many of you have inspired me to keep at it.

:bravo: Congrats! You look wonderful! I had a similar experience almost a year ago. There really are no words to describe the feeling. It is worth it ALL when you see your body in a new light. :carrot:

You do look wonderful. I am looking forward to the time I can cry because I am small enough to fit into something rather than it NOT fitting because I am too big.
