Talking WOO HOO!!!!!

I am SO excited I can't stand it!!!! At the beginning of the summer, I bought a really cute pair of shorts without trying them on because they were a size 12 which is what I normally wear (I have some stuff in 14's but most is 12's). When I finally tried them on, they did NOT fit- I could pull them up, but couldn't zip or button them. I decided to keep them as an incentive to lose weight, went on a whole exercise but eat a gazillion carbs thing... and lost NOTHING. So all summer long these shorts have sat in my drawer. Every now and then I would try them on, but they still didn't fit.
Here's the WooHoo part I just tried them on after eating lunch (a huge salad consisting of lettuce, cukes, celery, cheese, pork chop, and ceaser dressing)
and guess what??? I CAN DO THEM UP!!!! Now, granted, I wouldn't be caught dead in them outside the house, got some work to do before they look good, but I'm getting there!!!! WOO HOO!!!

Way to Go!!! I am so happy for you!!!Keep it up. I keep a dress that I have been dying to get into hanging on my closet door, it is the first thing I see when I wake up and the last thing I see before I close my eyes at night. So I am trying to do well just so I can squeeze into this dress.

You are my inspiration!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey , way to go. Now isnt all the crap worth it. I have a pair of pants also. I bought a couple of years ago and there is no way I will ever get in them unless I cut off one butt cheek. I mean thats how tiny they are . I must have been drinking or somethin.
I think they marked them wrong and insted of size 14 there are a 4.
Im very happy for you and you must feel like a million.
congrats.

congratulations!!!! I know that feeling, and it's terriffic!! I do that on purpose sometimes...but a pair of pants that I know will be too small...take them home and try them on to see how far I have to go before they'll fit. Then it feels sooooo good when they really do fit!! I started out doing that with size 14 this spring, and now I've had to give them all away, because I'm in a size 8! It's a terriffic feeling!!! I still have a little ways to go, but i know it'll happen!
And isn't shopping fun now????

Sorry to have rambled!!! hahaha
CONGRATULATIONS!! Keep it up!

WOW, Autumn.... You've gone from a 14 to an 8???? I am SO impressed! I sure hope that I can stick to Atkins and get back on track with my workout routine. It's 3 days on, one day off: aerobics and crunches all 3 days, and weights 2 of the days, then I take a day off to allow my muscles to recuperate, then back to the 3 on. I would SO like to be a size 8 again (I was a size SIX 6 yrs ago, then I got pg with twins, had a miscarraige then had my son) I haven't come close since. For a long time I really didn't care if I was getting fat, too much stuff going on medically with my son, so I put myself on the bottom of my "priorities" list. Now I am thinking it's time for ME!!!

i did the same thing with a pair of old navy shorts earlier this summer! they only had one size that was close to mine of the color that i wanted, so i decided i would get them because i wanted to be that small again! and i did!!!

it is a great feeling. always remember that feeling and don't let yourself start slipping back into your old habits (i've done that too)
