First of all, Happy New Years Eve everyone! Tomorrow I will be letting you all know my goals for the year 2013…I don’t like the word resolution, I prefer “goals”! I will go ahead and give away one of them since technically, I am starting today.
For 2013, I will be posting daily just like I did in 2011! I miss posting daily and I want to try it again. I also have a few other goals in mind, but you’ll have to wait for tomorrow’s New Years post to find those out!
As for my weight loss update, I lost another 2 pounds! I am now 308, which is 60 pounds total and I only need 9 more pounds off before I hit my 2nd short term goal to get below 300! YAY! It’s getting closer and closer!
For Christmas, I got a couple of shirts from my Mom that I immediately looked at and was like, “I doubt I will be able to fit these!” One shirt was a couple sizes smaller than what I HAD worn before losing all the weight and the other one was 3 sizes smaller…..Oh what the hey, I will just disclose my sizes….On Christmas Day, I was wearing a shirt that was 5x, which WAS a little big when I first got it but still fit….I had it pinned so it wouldn’t fall off my shoulders…..And the shirts my mom got me were a 1x and 2x. Well, surprise, surprise, the 2x fit me perfectly! Yea…I was shocked! The 1x was a little bit snugger than I like my shirts but it fit better than I thought it would. It really made me feel good that I could FIT something cause at my highest weight, NOTHING I tried on ever seemed to fit!
Well, today, I was running errands with my Mom and we went by Kmart and I got 3 new skirts and 2 shirts that ALL fit when I tried them on….If you’ve never been overweight, you can’t imagine how good it feels for everything you try on to fit! And then I got another cute shirt at Goodwill that I didn’t even try on until I got home and it fit perfect! I am just speechless, it’s an awesome feeling to find clothes that fit again. Eventually, one of these days, I would like to get out of “Plus size” where I can really shop anywhere, but hey, I am excited for where I am for now.
Next week, I will be taking measurements again and let everyone know how much more inches I have lost. Thank you so much for those who cheer me on and care about my journey. I don’t think I would have been able to get as far as I have come without you and I can’t wait to see how far I go in 2013!
