Good Things About Weight Loss, Part I

One word: Choices.

I have so many more choices now when it comes to shopping for clothes. I can go into practically any store (well, not stores like The Limited or American Eagle because, let's face it, I am too *ahem* mature for their selections) and try on whatever I want to because they carry my size. And then, I can pick and choose what I want to buy, instead of having to purchase something because I am desperate for clothes and it, whatever it is, fits. I can shop around for the best deals, because I am not limited to a couple of stores or tiny sections in department stores. Last Saturday I went to Macy's and was amazed as I moved from section to section, choosing items to try on. The selections were endless! And the cool thing? Every piece of clothing that I chose to try on actually fit. Un-frickin-believable! In the end, I only bought one thing - an up-to-the-minute, in-style now tangerine-colored cardigan that will coordinate nicely with several of my shirts. Just something to perk myself up...a little reward along the way. Yes, I'm definitely liking the choices!


  1. It's a crazy feeling to pull off the rack clothes and try them on, isn't it?

    Kudos to you!

  2. Since I'm just beginning, I'm not even close to getting nice smaller clothes. I'm still off-the-rack Plus Size at Wal-Mart. Yuck. But someday.... Vee

  3. Me too! I love going to the regular sizes and having so many choices and the best part is I don't have to wear the granny looking clothes anymore. YAY, for us!!

  4. What a great feeling that is!!

  5. I'm not there yet, but I'm sure looking forward to it. Thanks for sharing your happiness - it's very motivating!
