Done whinin!

Okay.. so I guess I sort of freaked out when I realized that there are women out there who have more options than I do. That being said... I admit that I was being a TOTAL WHINER!! I have lost more than 35 lbs!! HOW COOL IS THAT??? Today I went to Plato's Closet and picked up some pants because... my awesome sis-in-law sent me pants a week ago that were one size smaller than I started in and they were TOO BIG! ;o) I should mention that I started in a 16/18 and umm... they were FAR FROM FLATTERING! We are talking serious mushroom top! YUCK!
So today I was trying on 11/12's and they TOTALLY FIT!! I can't believe it! They are even cute on me! CRAZY! I just have been feeling so frumpy lately in my way too big clothes and so I finally took the advice of a couple of awesome women and purchased something smaller. I only got one pair of pants and 2 pairs of capris... but I didn't want to spend too much on an in between size. Not sure how long I will be able to wear them... but I really can't get away with my huge pants anymore.
Thanks Carrie, Melissa, Nicholette and Rochelle for reminding me that I have come a long way. 35 down, only 35 to go!

Yay, new clothes. Did it feel good? I remember hating to shop for the 20's that I was in at the beginning of last years, then shopping for 16 wasn't so hard. One day I will be even more excited when I can shop for 10's!
