"I fit into it!" Clothing milestone!



Recommended Posts

I am a thrifty person. Over 20 years ago, I bought a nice suit, an expensive suit, for $5 at a big and tall men's store on their last day of business. It was 6 sizes too small and there was no way I would ever fit into it, but I figured hey, for 5 bucks, I can store it in case I ever lost a bunch of weight. I kept it all these years and this morning, with almost 70# gone, dusted it off and tried it on, it fit! In a twist of fashion fate, it is of a style that had gone out of fashion, but now is back in fashion, looks right in style. Woo-hoo!

Way better than finding a twenty in your pocket on laundry day.

I have a top that I bought on holidays in Greece over 10 years ago that I never wore because it never fit. I need to dig it out of my storage unit and try that sucker on!!!

Congratulations! Better start practicing your dance moves.....

There are a few things I gave away years ago that I'd love to have back now. I'm starting over with shopping -- so happy when I find something at a thrift store.

Have a wonderful time at your daughter's wedding! Lots to Celebrate, including your health.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.
