My first Clothing Victory

When I started working on my weight loss I was 231 lbs and pretty much everything I own was getting tight on me. I had only one new t-shirt that was loose. I didn’t have any other loose clothing because I refused to buy a bigger size of anything. Because of my clothes all being so tight, my weight loss so far has just helped my clothes actually fit, but nothing is really loose yet (except that one t-shirt).

Yesterday morning I was getting ready for church and I decided to try and wear a top I haven’t worn since the winter. That last time I wore this pink dress shirt it was so snug that I had to leave the bottom button undone. I decided I wouldn’t wear it again after that because I was embarrassed about leaving that button undone.
Well, IT FIT!!!! I told my husband this and he replied with a, “Good for you!”. Though no one else at church knew what it meant for me to be wearing that shirt, I wore it with pride to both services.

  1. Congrats Leah!!! I know exactly how you fell about putting on clothes that fit. I kept a lot of my smaller clothes and although they are “older” they will be like new when I can get into them. Your looking good!!

    Yay! Isn't it the BEST feeling? You look great in that shirt – the pride is beaming from your face (and it should!) Keep up the great job – you will get there!


  3. Yeah Leah!! It's wonderful that that shirt looks so good on you. And the best part is how good you felt in it. You are just beaming!

    Go girl!

    Yeah!! What a victory! It's amazing how 13 little pounds (well – not REALLY little….have you ever seen 13 pounds of butter?) can make even that much of a difference, plus all the working out to help with the “trimming” down. You go girl – you look great!


  5. Yeeeeeeaaaahhh girl! Isn't that a great feeling? Clothing victories are the best! Congrats!


  6. Victory indeed! Good for you. I had to loose weight for my tight clothes to just fit right as well.

    Makes you feel so good, doesn't it! Good for you!
