But I did it, anyway. I tried everything on. And the result wasn't great. Everything is too small and is now resting in my "later container". Some I should be into hopefully by the first of the year, others are going to take more time. *sigh*
I tried a pair of cotton pants, Merona size three (whatever that means... it has been so long since I was in a clothing store, I don't even know sizes, anymore) that I thought wouldn't go on at all. They did but they are a bit too tight for public wear. There are also two pair of jeans, Venetizia, size 7, (again, don't know what that means) that I thought for sure were miles too small. I started to put one pair on and got one leg in and almost gave up, thinking that there was no way in hell I could get both legs in. But I tried and I did get both legs in. And then I thought I would never get them over my thighs. But they did go up over my thighs. I was convinced that they would never go up over my hips. To my utter astonishment, they went all the way on and I was able to button and zip them. No lying on my beg or sucking n required. :D They are just a tad too tight for what I would consider appropriate to wear out. But I will be wearing them very soon.
I know that when I started this odyssey, there is no way I would have been able to put any of those clothes on, even to try them, they would have not even gone onto my body. And I need to pull out of my little funk and remember that progress is being made and that I am 80+ pounds smaller than I was nine months ago. That those jeans that did go up and buttoned and zipped today probably wouldn't have gone past my knees when I weighed 400 pounds.
I have even more incentive to stay on track and keep on keeping on.
It is sunny, 61 degrees and windy, right now. It is supposed to get to 67 by Thursday then back into the 50's and possibly rain, by the weekend. I hoe that we do get some rain. I know it isn't going to happen but I am hoping for rain on Thanksgiving.
Okay. I am going to find some lunch. I will talk to you all, later. :)
