A Great Success!
I was able to go and do a little shopping yesterday. It's the first time I've been able to do that in a long time. I haven't bought clothes in two years, so needless to say the things I wear all the time were looking a bit tainted. I'm still a blue jean baby from the 70's so I headed straight for the jeans. I picked up the size I've been in for quite a while and much to my amazement they were way too big. I knew I'd been pulling my belt a little tighter lately, but I didn't give myself the benefit of the doubt there. Ecstatic, I got dressed again and headed back out through the store to change the size. I got a size smaller, went back to the dressing room, tried on a couple of more pair, and guess what? They were too big too. I redressed as fast as I could, grinning ear to ear, and went back out for another size smaller. They fit perfect! I haven't been that excited in I don't know when. Two sizes! I have lost two sizes in pants! I am absolutely elated. So I treated myself to two new very cute pairs of jeans, four shirts, and a crisp white pair of tennis shoes. The shoes definitely topped it all off as it put a little more bounce in my step. I'm so happy!
