Bad News: about a year and half ago, I went through my clothes and sold or gave away all my tops and dresses that were smaller because I had pretty much given up that I'd ever fit into them again. Now that I KNOW I will be smaller and I've lost some weight.... I don't have smaller clothes to go into. So....
I was out yesterday running an errand with my man when we were right next to a "Fashion Bug" and decided out of the blue to just go in and try some things on. I haven't shopped there for like over 20 years. I have been wearing size 4x - 5x blouses. I like my blouses loose so they don't show my bulges. But lately all my blouses are quite roomy... "tents" my hubby calls them.
So I tried on a ton of clothes and realized that I have lost 2-3 blouse sizes! I now wear 1x-2x. And I used to wear size 28 pants, and now I fit into 24, so I lost 2 pant sizes. That is pretty cool. Can't wait to get even lower! I walked out of there with this new outfit.
I am so excited to actually go clothes shopping with a friend someday! I have NEVER done that, even as a youth, and I've always wanted to. That is one thing on my "Skinny bucket list" - to have a clothes shopping spree with a friend!
UPDATE!! (May 28th, 2010)
Went through the closet quickly this morning and pulled out 34 tents (oops, I mean tops) that are size 4x-5x and that wasn't even all of them. I mean, I have to leave a few to actually wear until I can get some more clothes! I am NOT sentimental about getting rid of these tops either, even though a few of them have been in my closet for over 10 years! IDIOS old clothes and old size!
