Talking Smallest size ever!

I went shopping today. Wasn't planning on buying anything (just had to return a couple of things I'd decided I didn't really want) but I had a quick look round and saw a dress I liked. Dark blue, just above knee-length, medium-sized circle neckline, blue sash that ties in the back...
I have a wedding next Spring so I thought maybe I could wear it for that. Catch: they only had a size 38 (european - 10 in the UK and an 8 in the US). I've NEVER worn anything smaller than a 40 (12UK - 10US). EVER.
But I thought I'd try it, just to see how close I was to fitting in to it.


I bought it, smiled all the way home and then when I got back and showed my parents, jumped around the kitchen like a crazy person.

This means that I've lost two whole dress sizes since June. Eeeeek!

Makes the calorie-counting and early morning wake-up calls for exercising SO worth it!!!

Hooray! I remember the first time I did something like that! It feels great, and then I went and got several other items just to "try on" and of course I had a shopping spree here and there, but now I'm calmed down! But CONGRATULATIONS! I'm glad your hard work is paying off!

That is awesome! Keep it up!! I was a size 14/16 growing up and I'll never forget the day I bought a size 8 pants. Granted they were a stretchy material and what not, BUT STILL. I was in the single digits. And it felt awesome.

I did it once, so I know I can do it again

Know that you can do it. It is not a question of willpower. I have none of that. It is a question of willingness. What are you willing to do to reach your goals? No matter what your situation, no matter what your history you can be successful and improve your health and physical fitness. You can never be defeated until you quit.~anon
