A NEW NSV ~ SMALL FITS my XL size !!!!{And these shirts do not run large!}

Sunday, June 09, 2019

Last time I wrote a blog ,it was in October last year. I tend to not write unless I am winning the war against the ever current weight gain. But this is an NSV ~an UNEXPECTED NSV!
I hate mosquitoes!!! Where I live in the South, they are ever present and since I work in the garden non-stop from Spring to end of Summer, they are a problem.So, I found on online source ~ White Sierra~ that makes INSECT GUARD shirts ~expensive,but WORTH IT and bought 2 shirts ~no more mosquitoes [for 70 washes!],but when I went to put it on {this is my SECOND SET of shirts, I bought some last year}, I noticed it said SMALL. I am an XL ,so, I thought "Oh,NO! This won't fit!"
Well, I guess my MANY HOURS working in the garden since April and LOTS OF WATER ABOVE 8 glasses have paid off because IT FIT!!! No KIDDING! I fit into a SMALL when I am an XL!!!!!
And the arms are LONG ENOUGH since I am 6 feet tall! Now,granted ,the STOMACH is where I hold all my unwanted weight so it came up a bit short [also I have a LONG torso],but it STILL FITS !!WOO HOO!
I guess that's why the 5% SUMMER CHALLENGE is my favorite challenge on Sparkpeople and I am getting on it! [All those other 5% Challenges I have been on Fall,Winter,Spring and all the In-Betweens have not hurt,either! ]
I am JAZZED!!! WOO HOO!!!! I CAN do this!! YES, I CAN!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon [What I planted in my veggie/fruit garden] and all the flowers I LOVE in my 8 other gardens around our property in the country.
