NSV...NSV...NSV...NSV....!!!!!

Ok, sorry about the title, in case you can't tell I am hella excited. I posted earlier about going to do a little pampering today and I must say, right now I have my hair laid and my confidence is soaring. :) A little while ago I posted some pics of my favorite pair of black pants. for months now these have been my go to pants for everything, mainly because they fit and they always say black goes with everything, though I think I've stretched that theory to the max. After leaving the salon I was feeling cute :) so I decided my next stop would be Burkes, which in case you don't have one in your area its a discount clothing store. Love it!!! I didn't want to spend a lot of money but I definitely needed new pants,so I started browsing in the plus size section and found about 5 nice shirts all in a 1-2x, (my normal size is a 3x) and moved onto the pants.

The one thing I don't like about this store is sometimes it can be a chore to sort out clothes into their proper size ranges, they happen to love just shoving clothes on the racks so a lot of the time you have to peek at the label to know exactly what you're getting. My normal size and starting size is a or rather was a tight 28, maybe 30 depending on how they cut the pants. I browsed through the racks of 20s,22s, 24s, and 26s looking for my size and they didn't have any. Not about to let my day be spoiled I started pulling some pants from the rack and help them up against me and low and behold, a pair of 24s seemed like they would be ok.

*Breath held* I haven't been smaller than a 26 in over 5 years, sad but true. I did one thing I normally don't do, I went to the dressing room arms full of clothes and actually tried them on. I had grabbed 3 pairs of size 24 and mistakenly got one 22, and all of my shirts. Now I know I sounded like a fool in the fitting room but I don't care:


THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did I mention : THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.:D


I have four new outfits, tops and bottoms for $71.60, I am beyond overjoyed. This way overshadows the little gain I saw on the scale. Its amazing to me how far I've come in the past two and a half months and I know only good things are ahead for me. I bought the 24s but hopefully in a month or so I can go back for the 22. I almost cried today, again sad but true, I am just so overjoyed.For the first time in a long time I feel great about myself,my body and what I am capable of. I actually want to buy a full length mirror to put up in my bedroom and I have never had one, but I want to see all the changes I'm making as my body is getting into shape, this is only the beginning. :) Just had to share, have a great one people and I'll try to get pics posted later.
