Hello size large !

Hope everyone had a good weekend ! Yesterday was an incredibly lazy, tired kind of day due to a rather restless night before. No good reason for the sleeplessness, but rather the room felt too warm, pillows would not cooperate and my raggy toenails kep scratching my legs.(note to self- do a pedicure today). If left to my own desires, I would have opted to sleep the day away !

However, such luxuries are not meant to be, as we had errands after hubby returned from his singing gigs at church. Must hit the library for materials for the week and must hit Goodwill in a quest for temporary clothes that will not fall off. With three people losing weight and the economy being what it is, Goodwill is a beautiful place. It is also an adventure- you never know what you might find.

Son found a couple of new tops and a sweater, and I decided to take a risk on a pair of pants size large. When we began this journey i was wearing a size 24/26 in everything. While the scale seems to move slow for me and bounce back up a lot, my size keeps going down. However, I still cannot wrap my head around the idea that a size so small fits my body ! However, it does. It amuses the heck out of me. Size large is officially out of the plus size department and now into the "human" clothing options. It means that now I will actually be able to buy those pieces I think are cute in places like Walmart and Target ( I know- so classy!).And it is only going to get better. it is just making me wish I did not wait so long to do this !

Thrifting is my FAVORITE pass time. For my birthday my mother gave me $50.00 to go shopping with... she was hopeing I would hit Target or Walmart (I shop those places too), but I went to Goodwill brought a wool pea coat like new, and another 3 quarters length coat - not sure of the fabric still trying to figure it out... it's still small but my goal is to get into it by Christmas. I got to this one secondhand where I buy skirts for $1.00 and Anne Taylor slacks for $3.00!!! Secondhands... best place for a weight loser in progress to shop!

50 dollars at Goodwill can go a very long way - wise move ! Same amount at Walmart or Target could get you one outfit, unless it is on clearance.I love going to Goodwill for a lot of different items. Not only is it economical, but it prevents a lot of things from winding up in the landfills , and it helps to provide jobs for those who would not be hired by other places. It's definitely a win win kind of thing. Congrats on your finds !

:o( I wish our Goodwill had plus size clothes. Here it seems like big people just don't donate! lol

I was just telling my hubby that I can't wait until I go down to an XL so I can start shopping at the Goodwill. They have such cute selections, just in smaller sizes!
