Size 4 Skirt!

I maintained today (still 0.2 shy of 150 lost at WW) but a quick trip to Wal-Mart cheered me right up. I found a marked-down brown skirt, tried it on, and it fit. It was a size 4!!

I made the mistake of walking away from my cart one too many times and after retracing my steps ... I had to consider the fact that someone had swooped on it. Thank God an associate there recognized the items that another employee was handling (was about to reshelve them) and she helped me find everything. I just submitted an online letter at the Wal-Mart web site -- I just knew another customer had taken that skirt, and there were only size 12s left!

I was so disgusted by my September numbers that I didn't bother posting them. I didn't realize that as of last month, I am officially a "pear" -- my hips are bigger than my bust or my waist, LOL!

Today's WI -- Now Less Than Half My Original Size!

I went into today's WI prepared to hit three weight-related milestones. Well, two out of three ain't bad ...
  1. With a 2.8 lb loss, I have relinquished my seat in the 160s. I was 10 or 11 (now 34) the last time I was at this weight.
  2. I have now lost more weight (162 lbs total) than I currently weigh. This is the one I am most tickled by -- I have officially lost "half my size!"
  3. I missed the third milestone (150 lbs lost with WW) by 0.2, but I'm OK with that. I know that it will happen in November, if not next week!

I also officially committed with WW to a goal weight of 150 lbs. It is the maximum for my height -- I can always go lower. 8 lbs to go!

Me? Size 6 Jeans!?

Over the weekend I went to Old Navy and combed the clearance racks. I found a wool skirt (long) and a pair of jeans in size 6. They both fit!

The best part? When I checked out I spent $11!

A few months ago I was in Goodwill and found a pair of J. Crew jeans in a size 6. I knew then that they would not fit and I was at peace with that ... I tried them on tonight and was able to button and zip them! I cannot believe it ... as a youth I was never smaller than a size 12!

Well, that's the bottom ... I can't see that happening on top, LOL!
