Okay... So I know I've lost over forty pounds so far... but I guess that I really didn't notice that it HAS had a huge effect on how I look... and what I fit into.
Before I started my journey, you may remember that I was quite upset because women's size 3x shirts were even very tight on me. I'm still wearing some of the 3x and 2x shirts... and I've noticed that they are getting a little roomier. This morning, I was going through a pile of donations that we are sending to Goodwill... and I came across a shirt that my mom is donating with the tags still on it. It is size 16/18 (XL). I wondered if I should dare try it on. I don't even remember ever wearing this size... I took a deep breath and tried it on. IT FIT!! I thought, no freaking way! I checked the size again and sure enough... it was from the regular section of the store! Not the "Plus" size! I can't believe how monumental this feels for me. I fit into a shirt from the regular women's department! I have never even thought about shopping in a regular section in a store. This is HUGE!
Guess I'll keep on keeping on because I have a long way to go... but I'm getting there!
