Emotional Break down:

Last night hubby and I went shopping to finish up the last minute things we needed to pick up for Christmas gifts.

 

We were in the womens clothing section of the store, and I heard hubby say "Hey, this looks like something you would wear". I came around the corner to see this beautiful bright yellow sweater hanging up. Probably a size Medium. I just looked up at it and burst out crying! I think I scared my hubby a little. Just the thought of being able to go into a store and pick something you LIKE off a rack and be able to fit in it was overwhelming.

 

For many years I go into a store and go to the "fat ladies" section and hope they have something that isn't to horrible that will fit me. I know some of you ladies have been there.

 

I can't wait until the day I can pick something I truly like off a rack and wear it.

Barb, you'll get there, and I'll attest to the fact that it is a wonderful to steer clear of the "fat girl" section of the stores.

You should go back and buy that sweater as goal sweater. I had a pair of jeans in my closet, a size 18 (not 18W) Levi's. They were my goal jeans, and one day when I thought I could squeeze into them, I pulled them out of the closet to find they were TOO BIG. Those jeans, and my entire old wardrobe is in 6/39gallon lawn and leaf bags waiting for spring to get here so I can sell them for new clothes ! ! !

You'll get there, and you will feel fabulous.

I can't wait for you to get to that day. You'll be there before you know it. I agree with Tiff, you should buy that as a goal sweater. I love goal clothing with the sleeve, because unlike my "diet" attempts, I actually have gotten into all of them and you will too.

Thanks for your support Tiff and DeeDee...you guys both rock! I think I may just buy a "goal sweater" and hang it where I can see it. That might help me keep my eye on the prize.

Hi Jpetty! Welcome to VST. My surgery is scheduled for Jan 19th, so you will be just a few weeks ahead of me. We will be going through this together. Welcome again, and looking forward to getting to know you.
