Had a wonderful day today. John, not so lucky since he got stuck with me trying on clothes LOL!
I saw this blazer jacket that was leather and only $22 (consignment shop). Pulled it off the rack and saw it was a size small. I said there was no way it would fit, but John said – “I know that will fit you”. And he was right! That made me feel really good (not him being right, but it fitting me). I really need to work on the reality of what is me now. It was too long for me, though, and would have needed tailoring.
Then John pulled another jacket that he wanted to see me try on, and it also was a size small. I couldn’t get that one on without hulking out of it, and I laughed about it.
That made me realize how differently I view different parts of my body. I know that on top, there isn’t really much left to lose. And, I have some really good muscle definition, so not fitting into a small is almost a badge of feminine muscle honor in my mind.
Now if I try on pants and they are too small, that’s another story. That just makes me think about making my bottom smaller!
And it is all part of the same package.
Now, I will go on to say that I tried on a bunch of size 8s, and they all fit – every single pair! Didn’t like how they all looked, but I ended up getting 2 pairs.
Yes, I know I can still lose more weight, but darn it – single digit sizes make me so happy and content, especially knowing it wasn’t one fluke pair!
Yes, it is a good day.
