Like most people, I'm preparing to pack up the kiddos and head to Grandma's for the big turkey day. For the first time, I'm not looking for something that doesn't show off my hips or trying to find a shirt that fits...and doesn't button down the middle like a lumberjack! I actually feel comfortable. I know I have a long way to go but last Thanksgiving, I was in a 22/24 (closer to a 24). I'm headed out today in a 14W/16W (very close to just a 14W).
I feel so relieved and like so much pressure has been lifted. I'm even more comfortable with dressing the kids because I realized I always stressed to find something that made me look good (and thinner). I know I have a long way to go yet but it feels soooo much better.
P.S.- I saw my former secretary in the grocery store and she said she almost didn't recognize me. Not bragging just feeling really good today!
