I was able to buy clothes at Kohl's and Sears! Able to buy some 90% off clearance clothes too! Amazing how much cheaper clothes are when they are smaller sizes! Bought a pair of 22 petite dress pants at Sears! Haven't seen those numbers in 10 years! Went from a 30/32 to a 22/24. Woo hoo!!!
For the first time, I went shopping with my sister who's a size 8 and we were shopping in the same stores!! I bought pants & skirts in a size 12 and a size Large & Medium in shirts on Sunday (04/20/08) !! Just 7 1/2 months ago I was shopping for a size 24. I felt so amazing and proud of all of my hard work, my commitment and achieving this goal! :-)
I was shopping with my daughter when she was home for Christmas at Sam's Club. I saw a really cute sweater and immediately went for the 2X. It was way too big so we started looking for a 1X..no luck. Last resort was a Large. I put it on and to my amazement...IT FIT!!! While looking in the mirror, my daughter told me "You can smile Mama, it's ok".BEST AHA MOMENT EVER!!! NO MORE X'S!!!!
