The best part was that I must have gone up and down the stairs to the 2nd floor, to the basement at least a dozen times. AND I DIDN'T GET WINDED EVEN ONCE!
And that my friends is a big accomplishment for me!
This morning I went to my closet and dared to try out a size smaller dress slacks - and they fit! While I am patting myself on the back, I don't mind saying that these are a size 18W. Yup and I'm happy to be fitting back into them! Now I know that women's clothing sizes are getting bigger relative to the size number, however these were old clothes that I hadn't had on in years! So happy...
At my heaviest I was squeezing into a size 24 and wondering how I'd get the next size larger because my local store didn't carry a 26 or larger. Yup, you read that right, I was PLANNING on gaining weight. That was a wake-up moment.
So, yes, I'm darn happy to be fitting easily and comfortably into my "new" old clothes. I think I've lost almost 20 pounds since just before Christmas (weigh in tomorrow) and the workouts are really helping take inches off!
And with each choice and each day I know that I'm moving in the right direction. Making Fit Happen.
My reward is getting a manicure this afternoon!
