LilySlim - Weight loss

Quick post...

Howdy friends. Just a quick post to check in and say thanks for all of your support and understanding. You guys always make me feel better. So did a good night's sleep. I took a Benadryl and slept like a baby.

This morning when I weighed, I saw 212 flash on the scale, then it went away and went back to 214. This has happened before and always means that it's coming. I'm so close to weighing less than my husband, by like a pound, I can hardly stand it.

I need another dress for a Mardi Gras Ball this weekend. I just decided last night to try on the outfit that I planned to wear and it's too big. So, today, I took a couple of hours away from work to go shop, nothing fit me in the plus sizes! I couldn't believe it. I found a couple of things that fit me, but nothing I was crazy about, I'm going to shop a little more tonight and if I can't find anything I love, I'm going to get this velvet skirt that I found and hope to find a top that will fit me. I'm excited that I've shrunk, but I find it hard to believe, because the scale has not moved at all lately. I actually tried on a size 14 dress and it fit me, of course it had a full skirt, but I can tell you it's been at least 22 years since I was able to fit into a size 14, that felt really good.

I hope you all have a great day, it's cold down south, supposed to be in the 20's in the morning. We went to bed with the air conditioner on last night, crazy!
Take Care!Big Hugs,
T

woo hoo!!! That's amazing. As much as I hate shopping, being too big for the clothes is always a good reason.
