Dress shopping

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Yesterday I went dress shopping for my nephew's wedding at the end of next week. I just couldn't put it off any longer... had hoped to wait til the last minute to lose that extra pound or two but saw a beautiful dress online and it was marked down a hundred dollars from the original price of $195... now going for $99. They had a store downtown in the underground; on my way to the train and they had my size in stock... had to go. Went in and thought I'd try both my size and the next one down... the lady in the store looked at me and kept telling me the dress was a "small make"; I had told her I was in between sizes... well... tried on the size 12 and it was loose!!! whoohooooooooo... tried on the 10 and it was a perfect fit.. omg yay yay yay emoticon

I was soooooooooo happy.... last time I went dress shopping was ages ago and I almost cried.. today I am a happy woman... I still need to lose 16 pounds to reach my goal but I'm so ecstatic! It took me a month to lose that 5 lbs and a dress size but it did come off and all the workouts are helping...

It's a good day today.... yep... so good in fact that even though a woman hit me with her door getting out of her car in the parking lot at the train station... I don't care anymore (I was irritated at the time... didn't hurt but it's just such a careless thing to do)....

Life is good and I'm working out tonight again... hoping to lose another five pounds over the next month... and then the final 5 pounds before Christmas.. am going to Mexico in January and maybe... just maybe I'll be able to wear a bikini.... whooohoooo.... 51 and wearing a bikini?... lol.. haven't worn a bikini in years!

hmmm... better not let that dress get to my head... emoticon

Good luck all and have a great day! emoticon

    That's great news that you were able to fit into the size 10 - congratulations. All those workouts are really helping - good on you! Good luck with keeping on going. I'm sure you will have made even more progress before your holiday in Mexico.
    Thanks for stopping by my page too and asking how I am - no change really.... I do appreciate you thinking of me. Have a great week!
