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.
IT FITS PERFECTLY
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!!!
