What a great day!!! NSV's



Today I decided to try something.

Some of you may remember that I bought 2 pairs of jeans when they were on sale at Old Navy and put them away to be worn later. I figured if I purchased them, then I was committed to wearing them one day.

Well, they were sizes 10 & 8. When I bought them I could barely pull the 1o's up my legs, and doing them up would have been impossible since the 2 sides of the zipper several inches from each other.

Today I thought that I would take them to get hemmed so that when I am ready for them I can wear them. Well, guess what??? I AM wearing them right now. They are definitely snug - but that helps to keep me on track. I repeat - I AM WEARING A SIZE 10 JEAN!!!!

So, I decided that I needed a new shirt to wear with my new jeans, and I went to Old Navy (where else? lol). They have those great clearance racks at the back. There was a time when I was lucky to find something XXL at old Navy that would fit me. Today, feeling as good as I was in my new jeans, I decided to see if a large shirt would fit me. I took it into the change room and guess what??? It was too big!  I stood there in silence for a bit, just in complete awe of what I have done. I stepped out and asked the sales girl if she minded if I just ran back to the racks to get another size. On my way there I started to tear up - this is totally emotional for me. I went back into the change room with my MEDIUM top and tried it on - it fits nicely. So nicely in fact that I went back and picked out a few other MEDIUM tops to buy as well. I repeat - MEDIUM tops.

I know that I have been saying since the beginning that I WILL reach my goals this time - but now that I am actually doing it, I am totally amazed!!! I CAN DO THIS!!! I CAN!!! I AM!!!

So the pics are of me in my new SIZE 10 jeans and my MEDIUM top! Sorry they are so dark, I took them with my webcam.
