mylahxandermom's Journal, 19 April 2018

Today I walked my daughter around the mall because it was too cold outside. I tried on a few dresses size 6 and 8. Last year at this time I was wearing a 20/22 or a size 2/3 at the plus size stores. Wearing pants shorts size 9-11 now. It’s so weird two years ago I was walking the same mall staring at the clothes praying that one day I would fit in those clothes but I still had a lot of doubt that it was possible. You know what it’s possible. I didn’t buy any dresses because I don’t actually have anywhere to wear them right now. I did buy shoes in sizes 9 1/2 and 10 in shoes I used to have to get a 10 10 1/2 or 11. Not kidding my feet shrunk.
176.0 lb Lost so far: 78.0 lb.    Still to go: 12.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

That is great. I was the same way 2-1/2 years ago. Yes, buy the dress and take yourself anywhere you want.

WOW. Thank you for this. I'm a 16 and always dreamed to be a "perfect 10" or an 8. Working on it it but it seems so far away.

Natileem, it’s doable. All our bodies are shaped so different that a 8 or 10 can be perfect. I know that when I was a 20/22 I didn’t think it possible. I felt like losing the weight would take forvever. I had people telling me it took years to put on it’ll take years to take off. But I lost the majority of weight 60 pounds in 6 months and honestly I don’t feel like I tried that hard. I ate better calorie counted portion control and exercised a bit more. I modified a lot in the beginning. I’m so happy that I finally decided enough was enough and that I could do it.
