Mini-Goals - I finally went down a size!

View Full Version : I finally went down a size!

It's been a long, hard, 30-pound journey but I finally went down a size!

This morning I did my daily weigh-in and I'm unoffically down 30 pounds. It won't be official until next Friday because that's my weigh-in day. I'm sure my fellow chicks are getting sick of hearing me complain that I was still in a size 18. I noticed this week that my jeans are getting baggy and my work pants are about ready to fall off, so I went shopping today and came home with:

Jeans (size 16)
Dress (size 16--adorable, but will be going back because it over-emphasizes the girls and is too short (darn these legs))
White capris (size 14W!!!!)

Cute white t-shirt (size L)
White top for work (size XL)
Green print sleeveless top with tie--GORGEOUS. ( Size XL--it might need to go be exchanged for the L because it looks big under the arms). I love this top so much I might actually let you all see a pic of me in it.
Pink tank with small ruffles, size XL

It sounds like a lot but everything was on sale. I didn't find any work pants because I was kind of focused on stuff for my upcoming class reunion.

I am so relieved that I can finally see a difference! Another poster today mentioned that dressing in too big of clothing can hide our progress, even from ourselves and she is so right.

Keep going! We can do this!

Thanks! It was so fun to be trying things on, knowing that there was at least a *chance* that some of it would fit. There is nothing more discouraging that taking an armload of stuff back to the fitting room and finding it all way too small. And now I have some cute summer stuff. Maybe I'll go back and exchange the dress for a cute, long, print skirt that I saw.....
