Karen - hope you are having fun visiting with family and driving around our fair country!
I have exciting news - I purchased size 8 slacks yesterday from The Gap. I had no intention of doing so when I went to the mall. I actually went to the mall with the sole purpose of purchasing a couple of new bras and panties at Victorias Secret (I've found a fabulous bra that I love there, and it was on sale - 25% off for the first time ever...plus they are still having Semi-Annual Sale, so I picked up some other cute items). Well, on my way out of the mall, I figured, hey - I need some new work clothes, I should pop into The Gap and see if they have anything good on sale. They didn't. But they did have a nice pair of black slacks and I figured I'd try on a size 10 - since I had purchased my first size 10 skirt a few weeks ago - but that was a skirt....and I find skirts will fit at a smaller size than pants.....well, the size 10 fit so well that I was curious enough to walk out, pick up a size 8 and try them on....well, lo and behold - they fit! Now...I still need to get about 5lbs off for them to be a perfect fit - cause they are a little bit too tight as of today - but I'm sure in a week or two I can be halfway to that. I was so excited that I didn't care that they weren't on sale and bought them anyways.
So...that's as exciting as my news gets - but size 8 is my goal size. I'm only 7lbs away from goal, so it's nice to see that I am squeezing in to that size already. Can't wait to post final goal photos once I get there - I'm so eager and want to do it now - but am waiting until I see 155lbs...that will be one exciting day!
Hope everyone else is doing well - would love to hear from you all more often!
