New Scale, New Size.

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

My home scale has been acting up--I knew the numbers weren't right because it was no longer matching up with the doctor's and the gym's. Long story short, recently it's been more wrong than I knew, so I got a big surprise today. Bought a new, super accurate scale, and I am 12 pounds lighter than my old scale and I thought.

I should have known something was up, because my jeans don't fit anymore (convinced myself they had stretched!) and the hotel fitness center scale put me way below my scale's number (convinced myself the hotel scale was faulty).

But anyway--YAY--228, lost 36 pounds. I haven't weighed this little since during high school. I went to Old Navy and Target to see myself in the new size of clothes: I fit into Old Navy size 18 jeans. That's a big deal to me, since I've been in 24s for years. Target non-plus size 18's zip up, but don't look very flattering. But it was only a couple weeks ago that Old Navy 18's looked like that, so I know I'll be in Target 18's soon enough.

I'm pretty pumped. emoticon

    I know how exciting it is to actually reach regular size items. I was a plus size 22 and on the weekend I fit into a 14 at Old Navy! Keep working cause the day you fit into "regular" clothes it feels so amazing! Keep up the great work!
