Quick weight update.  I am down to 281, which is a total loss of 69 lbs.  I’m as bad as a 12 year old boy…I giggled when I realized I’d lost 69 lbs…and when I told Eric…and when I told one of my friends. 😉

I went back and tried on the size 22 capris I mentioned before.  I was in disbelief–they buttoned and zipped!  They were tight as hell, but they went on!  LOL  I also tried on a cute polo type top.  First I picked a 3x, since I wear a 3x tshirt comfortably.  It was HUGE on me.  The bottom went all the way to my thighs.  So I grabbed a 2x and it fit great!  I am trying really hard to remember when I wore 22s before, how much I weighed then, and I really cannot remember.  I think I moved through 24 into 26 after Hailey was born and I was a SAHM (2002-2004) so it was quite a while ago. 

I put a bunch of my nicer too big clothes up on ebay tonight.  Maybe I can make a few bucks to use to buy myself some smaller clothes.  Oh, I did buy the dress I mentioned before.  Size 16.  Very cute.  I hope to wear it next summer.  I wasn’t brave enough to buy the size I’d like to be (12).  I’ll add a picture of the dress to this post.

I also took a picture of myself this morning before work that I’ll add here.  This is my new 2x shirt and some 24 capris that I spent the day pulling up over and over.  I thought I looked pretty good.  😉  Excuse my messy house.  We’re getting ready for a yard sale so things are in a complete disarray right now.

    I’m so glad you bought the dress. That is where your head is at…on the goal, and it shows. Congrats girl! You’re an inspiration.
