Default The few, the proud... the mediums.

Yes, folks, I have FINALLY reached a turning point in clothes sizes! It took losing 28 pounds, but I finally did it. I am now able to wear mediums! I got off work an hour early, my mom couldn't come pick me up right away, so I went shopping! (I work in a McDonald's in Walmart) I saw a cute cami tunic (white) and super-soft shrug (purple) and HAD to try them on. I reluctantly picked up a medium... I figured that maybe they were stretchy enough to handle me.

They didn't need to handle me. They fit like a dreeeeeeeam! Not only that, they looked awesome on me! I'm not going to wear them until I've lost 2 more pounds, but I am definitely doing the happy dance!

Yay! It feels so great to make it into the next size bracket, and I applaude your ability to do that while working in a McDonald's surrounded by all that food all day; I certainly couldn't do it. Good for you! As a bonus, I'm sure that happy dance burns off a few more calories too!

That's great, considering you work at McDonald's! Losing work while smelling all that food. A test to your committment to living a healthy lifestyle!

Thanks evereyone, I really appreciate all the compliments. I'm so incredibly proud of all the hard work I've put in, I just can't wait to lose these next two pounds so that I can wear those cute clothes
