Mini-Goals - NSVs - bras and shopping in my closet

Two big NSVs today, even though I am only down 17 lbs!

First, I have a huge wardrobe of scrub tops, but only a handful that I have been able to wear. There were only one or two of the 3x pullovers that fit comfortably, and the rest were snap fronts that I had to wear open with a tee underneath. Today, I tried on about 6 of my previously too tight 3x's and they FIT! I cannot wait to go back to work Tuesday...I am going to wear a "new" top every day! It felt so good to go "shopping" in my own closet and come out with a whole new wardrobe for work. Next step, I have about a dozen scrub tops in a 2x that are waiting for me! :carrot:

Second, I have been wearing cheap, pull over sports bras almost exclusively for about a year because all my bras were uncomfortable. They offer no support or shape and I have that God-awful uniboob with them. Sure, they were comfortable, but I always felt frumpy and unattractive with them. I mean, come one, about the only good thing about being overweight is having a nice rack! :o Well, on a whim this morning I put on one of my "real" bras that I have not worn in at least a year, and not only did it fit, but I could actually put it on the middle and not the loosest closure! :D I feel so much more womanly and shapely...I got my curves more single blob of chest for me. I got boobs again!

YAY - GOOD FOR YOU! Few things feel better than being able to fit into something that you couldn't before (another is when you can't wear something 'cuz it's too big!) - so show off those "new" tops now that you're also lifted and separated and wait for the compliments!:woohoo:

Keep up the good work - it's evidently working for you - can't wait to hear about your next closet shopping spree for the waiting 2x's!

I think we're all guilty of hanging onto our 'skinny' clothes but way to go - you are actually fitting the things you've hung on to!!:carrot::D 17 lbs is a lot and it sounds like it's your body shape that is changing significantly so congratulations - enjoy those tops and the bra - you've definitely earned it :) Yay for you!!

Excellent! What a great boost it is to have "new" and smaller clothes to wear! Keep up the good work and you will have many more of these NSVs.

Congratulations! You say you lost ``only`` 17lbs, but that`s a big amount! You`ve come a long way and you`ll be fitting into those 2Xs in no time!

I definitely find fitting into clothes I used to wear more exciting than buying new ones!
