Three NSVs for today.... 1) Saturday we celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary by getting dressed up and going to a nice lake side restaurant. After dinner my husband suggested we walk around the lake, at first I hesitated because I was wearing a dress and didn't want to start a fire with my thighs rubbing together. I mentally paused and noticed how my legs felt as I was walking. I realized that they still slightly touch when I walk but only little bit and I that I don't have to wear bike shorts under my dresses in order to go for a walk outside. We had such a nice walk and inside I was bursting with pride at this change in my body. 2) I got a new office chair at work about a month before my surgery--at that time my belly rolls touched both arm rests when I sat. Today I realized that there is a nice bit of room there between me and the arm rest! 3) We are having family photos taken as my gift to myself for losing 100lbs. I've been trying to shop at regular stores but have been discouraged because it is very hit or miss what fits at those stores right now (although I did get jeans at New York and Co last week--woohoo me---I haven't shopped there since it was Lerners!). I don't have any more time to spend at the mall trying to find a top that works with my color scheme and looks good, so I ordered a top from Torrid. I haven't bought many clothes since I have lost weight because I had smaller clothes in storage. I ordered a size 1 and 2, just in case, and had them delivered to my local store. I tried on the size 1 and it looked good, but out of curiosity I asked if they had it in a 0 and they did. I tried on the 0 and it fit! I'm not really enjoying this time where I'm straddled between plus sizes and regular sizes, but it felt good to buy the smallest size at a plus size store-- much better than trying on the largest size at a regular store to see if it might fit. I think I might stay with plus sizes a bit longer. Wearing the smallest size is much better for me mentally- I leave the store encouraged rather than discouraged that I can (usually) get the misses size XL on, but it doesn't look quite right. This is big progress for me mentally! Sorry for the huge photo!
