Default Crying in the dressing room!

I bought this dress today. It's a size medium. When I tried it on, I almost started crying in the dressing room. I couldn't believe it was me.



Just wanted to share my joy.

Peace, Heather

I bought it at Walmart for $24.00. I don't really need it, but I just couldn't resist. Not at that price.

You look FANTASTIC.

And I too had a similar experience in the dressing room. I was in Macy's. It was the first time that I fit into non-plus-sized clothes. I was so overwhelmed and it was VERY emotional for me. I had to sit down and compose myself for quite a few minutes. I'll never, ever forget it.

Enjoy that dress. And enjoy the new and improved life you've made for yourself.

Super cute dress, and look how cute you look in it!

I'm in a bigger size now, but last time I lost weight I tried on a pair of size 14 dress pants and they fit. I was so overwhelmed that I hung them back up and ran out of the store. I sat in my car and cried because I had such mixed emotions--happy, guilty--I felt like I was trying on someone else's pants, LOL. Your reaction of (almost) crying, then buying the dress, is much better!

I had the same experience when I first tried on size 10s that looked really sexy on me. It was the first time I felt like I looked really good, and not just "better." I think I did cry a little Congrats
