I went to the outlet mall yesterday because my girlfriend and I went to see the Smashmouth concert last night at Chinooks Winds Casino at the beach. I went into Dress Barn and tried on about 6 semi-formal dresses for my upcoming cruise because the semi-formals I have are too big to wear without being altered. So of the 6 I tried on (all size 16) EVERY one fit. So 30 pounds lighter and now a size 16 in dresses and a size 18 in jeans, I am ready to say Goodbye and Good Riddence to the women's and plus sizes and embrace "Misses Sizes" (I was a 20W when I started my journey)! It felt really really good to go into Dress Barn and not Dress Barn Woman. The 2 new dresses I bought for the cruise got a big stamp of approval from the manly man as well and it was a lot more fun having the "fashion show" for him when I got home. The hard work is paying off and I'm loving shopping again! Thanks to all of you who have been with my on my journey.
