Talking OMG I reached I shopped at a regular store!!

So today I wanted to go shopping for some new shorts because the old ones I had had some random bleach stains on them. Me and my friend decided to make it a girls day out so we are looking around when she says we should go look in Rue21. I was like no I don't really want to go in their because they don't sell anything that I can wear. Rue was having a really good sale and my friend encouraged me to try on some clothes just to see if they would fit. I can honestly say I was so surprised when I was able to fit into a size 13/14 .
Today I accomplished one of my mini goals can now shop at regular stores again!!! 9/6/2010


SN: Steady running down those size 11 pants!!

I've found a few items at Target and Macys that run big so I can wear an XL from the regular section, but I still can't really shop in the the regular section. Certainly not at Rue21! Congrats on your achievement!

Good job! It seems like shopping is much more enjoyable when you are able to fit into the things you like. :-)

Awesome! I think clothes fitting is way more exciting than the numbers. I'm not tracking my weight right now, but my pants size. Lol

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
