Default A GOOD day shopping!

I started this weight loss journey after a very depressing shopping trip to buy bigger work clothes--size 16's. For the first time ever on that trip, I had to go "upstairs" at Macy's to shop in the women's department. Having a few weeks before returning to work, and determined never to wear those clothes, I committed to lose the weight. My goal is to become a normal BMI, whatever size that leads me to. Well, after a few weeks I was able to return those clothes and fit comfortably into my size 14's again. My size 14's are getting uncomfortably large so I decided yesterday to finally buy some new clothes. You can imagine my delight when I could get into size 10's! Many are still a wee bit tight, but I decided to skip 12's altogether since I 've still got weight to lose and they fit well enough. I have not been a 10 since my early 20's.

Your post interested me because we are close in height and I am close in weight. I am guessing that I will be close to a size 10 in another 10-12 pounds or so. (I am a 12 now at 167)....As far as going upstairs to the Macys plus dept. I hear you. No fun. Congrats on taking those clothes back AND skipping a size!

Thanks ladies!

Dstalkalot-yes, I think we are pretty similar. Size 10 is definitely something to look forward to.

What an exciting outcome! I know all too well that walk of shame at Macys (although i'm not a regular there)What an accomplishment. Great job. A high five to you! I'm several sizes behind you but you are inspiration.
