Doing Great!

May 28, 2009

Hey hey!!  Just a note to let everyone know that I am doing so well!! The pounds are melting off, and I am feeling better every day!!!!

The most exciting thing happened a few weeks ago....

My jeans were HUGE on me. Like grossly huge. I decided that I had to break down and go to the mall to get some new ones.  I hadn't shopped at Lane Bryant in about 4 years because, to be honest, their clothing was too tight.... How sad is that???

My mom said that I should go in and try some jeans there.... I didn't want to because I KNEW that they wouldnt fit, and I didnt want to feel discouraged that I hadnt lost enough weight yet..... But, I gave in and we headed to the mall....

My mom handed me a pair of jeans in the biggest size they had. I went into the dressing room already feeling slightly defeated.... I held the jeans up.... There was NO way these were gonna get on me, much less CLOSE.... BUT, I promised I would try.....

One leg in, then the other. I started pulling them up and WHAT THE HELL?! They FIT!

I ran out of the dressing room to show my mom.... I was SO excited. She looked at me and said "you cant get those"
I was like "why not??????"

She smiled and said "Amber, they're way too big. Let me go get you a smaller size."


So, long story short, it turns out that I have already gone down THREE jeans sizes!!!

When I put on the correct size, I was amazed at how good I looked. For the first time in YEARS, I was proud of myself and excited!!!!

Needless to say, I bought a second pair *smiles*

This is the most amazing thing I have ever gone through.

I would go through the pain of surgery again in a heart beat.

THANK YOU to you all for your support.... It means the world to me!
Lots of love!
