I just need to yell it from the roof top!

SIZE 8 FEELS GREAT!

I went shopping in the big city yesterday and was elated to find that EVERY size 8 I tried on fit...most perfectly!, (some a little loose). It's official. I've gone from a 4X/30W to a M/8. I found TONS of awesome bargains and bought several complete outfits for hardly any $. (Though shoes and accessories added a bit to the total bill! ;))

Feels terrific!

It DOES feel great!!! Isn't it something that we missed out on that INCREDIBLE feeling for so long?

Well now at least you'll get to double-y and triple-y enjoy it.

Clothes shopping. Used to be an absolute NIGHTMARE/HORROR of indescribable proportions. Now it is a wonderful, fantastic, out of this world, phenomenal joyous experience.

Oh and about the bargains - I'm sorry but they never had bargains like that in the plus sizes. Never. Like it would have made a difference anyway. There was only so much clothing that actually fit or looked "good enough" to purchase.

Lori, I'm so thrilled to hear you're reaping the incredulous benefits of this incredible journey.

Your story is one of the many reasons I am keeping on...I remember your Thanksgiving pic., your plate resembled mine, fully loaded without a care in the world...Now, holy smokes, to see you come this far is so incredibly inspiring. Thank you for posting this...it will make my exercising easier. I am absolutely thrilled for you!!!! You know how to make a girl weep in a good way. God bless. I know you worked so hard for this moment.

woohoo! I bet that is an awesome feeling! I agree all the clearance racks have size 8s and less...so that is a major accomplishment budget wise too!

Thanks for the support girls. It really is exciting! Tomorrow we are going to Kansas City and taking the kids to Worlds of Fun amusement part. Last year at this time we also went (for the first time in YEARS) I was excited that I could squeeze into most rides, (because of my substantial loss at the time), but there were a few rides I still exceeded the weight limit for....Well NOT anymore. I can ride til I puke...LOL It really is like a dream.

Lori Bell,

I have saw your pic before (at your heavier weight), but do you have a blog that tells the whole story? I am in need of some inspiration today b/c I am wanting to eat everything in site and I was wanting to read it.

You look great, and you are such a staple to this site! Congrats on the 8's.

Thank you for asking. I plan on writing up a goal story and adding several before & after pics in the near future. (Now that I have some pretty clothes that fit! :D) I just haven't had time lately because of all the summer activities. Hopefully I can do that next week before I start in on canning veggies from the garden.

As far as wanting to eat...well, I have days like that too. I have been known to eat 1/2 a watermelon or a giant bowl of sliced tomatoes to keep from driving 12 miles to the nearest place that sells ice cream. You can do it, you are way stronger than a bag of chips...:hug:

You know what, 18 is so much fun...I literally cannot WAIT to get to 12!!! With my shoulders etc., I don't think I'll ever be smaller than 12...and that's fine. 8 sounds TOTALLY AWESOME Lori Bell...and, boy, do I remember 4X/30 (and 5X/32!!!)...I do NOT miss those sizes AT ALL.

:cp: Get used to it! I've become a shameless clothes horse now that everything I try on fits and looks GREAT! :o

In fact, that's the problem now - in the past it was "hmmm, which "tent" should I settle for? They're all horrible and nothing looks good anyway." Now it's "everything looks fantastic! How can I pick just one?" "Oh, I can't." Which is why I wind up with soooo much and I guess that's where the shameless clothes horse comes into play........ :D
