I went out to pick up a few more birthday presents for John. Well, I just happened to go by the consignment store that I like to shop at, and she had a bunch of end-of-season racks out, plus a storewide discount going on.
I got 2 exercise tops, one pair of running shorts, a pair of denim shorts, a pair of jeans, 2 shirts and a dress!! All for $50. Unbelievable!
And!!!! All the bottoms were size 10!!!! Except the running shorts which were an adult small – a freaking size small!!! Can you tell I am excited??
John absolutely loved the dress, too. It’s a black dress (he loves me in black), just above the knee and is a slip dress with a lace covering on it. I love it. And the dress was only $14! I am really loving clothes shopping now.
I had my first experience telling someone who didn’t know that I lost 100 pounds, too. I was chatting with the store owner about needing a new wardrobe, and a customer overheard me and asked how much weight I lost. I said 103 pounds and the stares were hilarious! You know that saying about jaws dropping and eye popping, well I saw that big time from the store owner, the customer who asked and another lady standing by. It was weird, exciting and embarrassing all at the same time.
So, when I get to goal, I think I might be around a size 8 when all is said and done. Pretty cool. From a 24 to an 8 (would be smaller without the loose skin, I bet).
Today is one of those days that I found radiance 🙂
