So I decided to do a quick update for now.
Tony and I went shopping at Macy's this afternoon and I about had a mental breakdown in the dressing room. I took in 2 shirts to try on, one of them was a size XL. And by XL I mean REGULAR section XL, not a plus size section XL. And to my astonishment it fit! I started crying in the room, just because I was so happy. So I had to buy it :)
I've been kind of beating myself up lately because my weight loss has stalled/slowed due to stress and my lack of focus. But trying this shirt on, and buying it has really helped renew my belief in myself and how far I've come, and will go!
I hope everyone in cyber land is well, and you'll notice my new photo! I'm on the far right, and the other to lovely ladies in it with me are my baby sister Catie and mom, Jan. It's so funny but the more weight I lose the more I think we do all look alike. At my heaviest I felt like the 'black sheep' of our family, like I didn't fit in or look like them.
What a difference 85 lbs makes!
