New Pants Again!!

Bummer...I had to go shopping again for another new pair of pants. Just went a couple of weeks ago and purchased a pair of size 18's (Could not fit into the 16's). Well now the new pants are way too big already. I can slide them off without unbuckling them!! Woo Hoo!!!

So today I went to the store, blew right in, grabbed a pair of size 16's right off the rack, put them on and they fit - GREAT!!! Then I found this great black sweater, sized 14-16. It's form fitting and looks wonderful! I actually have curves!!! In all the "RIGHT" places!!!

What a great place to be for Christmas Day!! I have not been this weight for years!! Finally I think I can allow pictures taken of me without running from the room. Can't wait for the family to see me in my new outfit!!!

This....this is just another great reason to keep going, to stay focused and to reach for and achieve my goals!!!

I'm going to do this thing!! How about you ~ Are you with me?

Keep focused!!!

Merry Christmas to you and your family!!!

  10. That must feel super sweet... GREAT JOB!! Nothing like trying on a smaller pair of pants and having them fit. And nothing like not dreading pictures either. It is SO worth it! I am WITH YOU GIRL!!!

  11. oh I am so proud of you. You keep going girl. I have been "shopping" at the thrift stores because of the size changing. Jim bought me two pretty sweatshirts type things for Chrismtas. One is a 14/16 the other 16/ has been 20 years since I wore these sizes. In April I am going to go real clothes shopping, for my birthday and anniversary. By then I hope I'll be where I plan to be and stay.
    Take care and have a blessed evening.
