Good News

I’m really tired today. Had a very long weekend. But I thought I had to share one very important piece of information with you all.

To prepare for my 1st day at work Tuesday, I went shopping for clothes. I have to wear a black and white uniform. So I hit up Target and scoured their sales racks. For starters, can I just say that I LOVE that I can get a nice shirt for $3-5 on their sales rack?! It’s surreal. One of my sweater shirts cost me $2.97! *does happy dance* Anyway, back to the topic really at hand, my great news. I went shopping for dress pants, because I only own one pair (I know, how did I get through life with one pair of dress pants?). Let’s just say, I’m not a dress pants kind of girl. I brought in 3 different sizes to the dressing room, because, really, I had no idea what size I am since my weight loss. Haven’t had the money to go shopping til now.

I tried on the 16. Too big. My chest tightened from the excitement. I tried on the 14. Nice. A little big around the waist but my thighs and hips looked quite nice. I had pretty much resolved to get them when I stared at the 3 pairs of size 12s I had hanging beside me. What the hey, right? I tried them on. The first pair were awfully tight. I mean, they closed and all but… ew… muffintop. Not how I want to start work. I wasn’t even going to try on the other two pairs. Why bother, you know? Same size. Same make. But the second pair had buttons, while the first one closed with those little metal latches. Stupid reason to figure they’d fit. But, I tried the second pair on anyway. 😀

Wouldn’t you know they fit absolutely fabulously?! I stared at myself in awe. I mean, my butt looks FABULOUS in these pants! And they’re a 12!!! A 12!! Just this time last year I was a size 20. It’s surreal. I feel like a new person. And I just had to share my excitement. Ha, ha. Now I’m going to crawl back into bed where I’ve been nearly all day and fight this awful allergy headache with a smile and a good book. 😉

See you all on the morrow!

  1. Kelley, I did a really really intense low calorie diet which I stuck to as though my life depended on it. It involved protein shakes, meats and veggies. I upped my workouts. And really just stuck to it. Now, I’m slipping a bit… but I’m getting back on the bandwagon. 😉

    ROFL. Tempest, that bikini better be ready for me. It’s not going to know what hit it. 😉

  2. YAY!!! Congrats Isabelle! That is such a great feeling – going down jeans sizes. Muahahahahaha! Hope you did a quick dance break when you fit in those 12s. ^_^
