Default Bought New Clothes - 1st time since.....

And I actually halfway enjoyed it! It was time to buy some clothes as the ones I had were starting to fall off me. Since I'm not at my final goal weight, I wanted to get just a few outfits suitable for work. I went to the Ross store, which I wish I had discovered when I moved to Hawaii 3 years ago!

I got 6 tops and 5 skirts which for the most part I can mix and match into several outfits! Women, you know the disparities in clothing sizes from manufacturer to manufacturer! But I was able to get into some 10s, 12s and even maybe some 8s.

Outside, I looked and sounded grumpy as I came home, pulled out the NICE clothes I could no longer wear and tried on the outfits once again. But inside I was beaming!!!!!! I didn't want to gloat outwardly. But I still don't believe what I see in the mirror these days.

You guys here can understand the satisfaction and pride!

Dosn't it feel great? I had to get new shirts for work, I always got extra large before, now I am In Medium, and in jeans I went from 22 to 12, I will have to buy some soon, 12 is the last size I had around from years ago.

It does feel great. I had gotten rid of all clothes below size 14-16 a long time ago. I never thought I'd ever wear those sizes again. Its a nice feeling.
